    I'd be interested to hear others' unpopular opinions in this thread. Here's a few of mine to get us started: I don't like this new wave of overpriced overdrive pedals that simply pop out and accentuate the 1.6 KHz frequency. (Grind, Horizon Drive, 33, etc.) - I personally don't think they sound...

    Okay so I've had my 6505+ for awhile and I've been running the gain with a boost on 4.5 on the lead channel. Now that's always sounded good, but it never got me quite the crunch like the guys from Chimaira had, which is what I want from that amp. I saw a video that Rob did, and he's got his gain...

    I'm trying to setup one GSP1101 bass tone. I bought SVT810 IRs to make sure I dont ruin the tone with the built in cab sims. What you think ? Guitars are also GSP1101. https://soundcloud.com/tudio2-akt/lowend Does it have enough lowend and shit?

    Looking for inspiration for buying a new guitar. I like the super Strat body but could be persuaded to try a different one if it turns me on. In your opinion, what is the most beautiful guitar you have ever seen? Lets at least keep it electric solid body :agreed:

    I play through a blackstar id:core and it takes pedals awesomely. I love the sound of different distortions.I dig the distortion on the amp but sometimes I want a different flavor for something different so I'm looking for a good over drive, I want something I can put on the clean channel and...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    A couple weeks ago, I posted about a purchase I intended to make. I wasn't completely pleased with the '57 Classic pickups in my Les Paul Traditional and thought... "well, let's try Bare Knuckle Black Dogs." I wanted something a bit more ballsy without turning the Big Blond Bastard into a...

    I've developed a bit of GAS for something ridiculously metal and this would certainly fall into that category: X Series Warrior™ WRXMG | X Series | Jackson® Guitars I don't really want to spend a stupid amount and these seem to go for a reasonable price whilst also having good spec. I...

    Hi there, Just wanted to share my thoughts on the Two Notes "Le lead" Pre-amp that i just bought. You probably have heard of it, as Two Notes have sent one to every famous rock/metal YouTuber ... But hey, it's a French product, i HAD to test it :agreed: . So, a quick review. What is it ? It's...

    Hello 50 yr old here from Indy. Played in the 80's big hair music. Sold all the big gear, including my Charvel model 6, a year ago or so. Lost interest over those 30 yrs, but a spark of new interest has come about. Always have been a "play it by ear" guy with really no theory and so forth. Ok...

    A friend of mine is looking for a guitar, he wants to start playing again and wants a used cheap (150-180€ tops) guitar with or without a trem it doesn't matter, but not something that is a complete POS, I told him look at Ibanez/Schecter and managed to make him forget about the Warlock BC...

    Scar Symmetry has been one of my favorite bands since their very first album and I bought most of their albums immediately after they were released, but after Christian left the band and they brought in two "sub-par vocalists" to fill in for Christian, my enthusiasm for them weakened quite a...

  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've got a nice RG560 with stock pickups in it and I want to set this thing up as a pure shred machine, not a metal machine per se but a shred ala Yngwie, Paul Gilbert Satch, Vinnie Moore etc. (you know the usual stuff I regularly butcher) it's H/S/S I really liked the Gravity storm I had in my...

    Hi guys I'm not that big fan of JP or Dream theater, but I badly love the graphics of the Ibanez JPM. There is 7string version of JPM (called P7) specially made for only JP not produced publically. I was to DIY the P7, but it's really hard job and costs much then I thought. So I'm gonna buy...

    I need straploks for the JP70, I've mostly used Schaller but I'm curious about the Dunlops. I know they stick out a little further than the Schaller but I like the dual design aspect. I know Chris had trouble with his Schallers coming off the strap, and I remember Stitch had his rip out of the...

    Ok. I've been playing for roughly 8 years now, and have decided to go back and re-vamp my technique. I have used the (Dunlop) Jazz III (black, nylon) for years, but recently started using the (Dunlop) .88 mm Green Tortex Jazz picks. The only issue is, I've also started up using the Standard .73...

    Hey guys, So ironically, everything I have been writing lately seems to be suited for vocals. I came up with a quick sketch for a backing track tonight, and I don't know if I should solo the crap out of it or save it for vox. What do you think...
