  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Looking for some general opinions / assumptions regarding the use of a Messa California Tweed amp for heavy music. I purchased the amp a few years back b/c I like the tweed tubes for jazz. I'm moving into a heavier territory and trying to sort out if I should keep it or trade it for something...
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Here's the situation. I have a four space rack sitting on top of a Marshall 1960A cabinet. It's a 14 inch deep rack and fits just so on top of the cab, which is great even though the TriAxis sticks out the back a little bit. I'm not sure I'd like anything taller sitting on there. So, I'm...

    Kind of in limbo on what to do with this thing. Was always a dream guitar but after the honeymoon wore off, things started to rear their ugly head. First off, the face dots on the board are WAY off. Like Rocka aneurysm causing off. I did notice that right off the bat and it bothers me but not a...

    As I've looked at the fractal audio forum, and as it's full of people trying to sell their shit, and as I don't know tom, dick, or harryDjent9 on there I thought I'd turn to people on here who have one, as, well, I trust you guys, and I am not going to get anyone trying to sell me shit or the...

    Damn I need another guitar like a hole in my head. But this RG570 just popped up locally for $200, has had the neck repaired from the looks of it. I know nothing else except what is listed in the ad. Any opinions? https://cosprings.craigslist.org/msg/d/ibanez-rg570-pod-hd500x/6430428763.html

    I just saw this Ibanez on the second hand shop for less than 400 euros. It was the Prestige name on the Headstock that droove my attention and then took some pics of serial. Couldn't play it but... Im thinking in getting her ahahaha, what can you tell me about it? She seems to have a super...

  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So on a whim, I recently picked up a 81-7H and couldn't be happier. I never played actives before and was always curious to try them. For metal rhythms thru my triple recto it's absolutely crushing. While I still appreciate passive pups, I'm an EMG convert for brutal metal stuff. However, for...

    Considering grabbing one of their tele baritone conversion necks. any of you have experience with them? i have an old, old, old tele copy that is just terrible that i'm think of replacing all the hardware and neck and just using the beat up old body. talk me in or out of this course of action.

    So, I've got an RGIT27FE (dual 707's, 1vol 3-way & killswitch) and a C-7 Hellraiser (dual 707TW's, dual push-pull volumes, 3 way & tone). I love the tapped sound on the 707tw's for cleans and stuff, but I don't love the Hellraiser so much...got it in a trade deal and will probably either sell...

    My friend from work (hes a drummer) has an old Peavey Stereo Chorus 400 that will let go to me for 100 bucks. Before I drag all my stuff (guitar and effects) across town to see how it sounds Id like to get some opinions of some metal heads on this amp. I have read its dirty channel kinda...

    Hey guys. A friend of mine is giving me this Boss ME-25. It will be my first experience with a multi effects processor, so I'm wondering if I should run it in front of my Randall RD45 or in the effects loop? What are the pros and cons of both options, and what are your opinions on the Boss unit...
  14. Music: Recording Studio
    My dads current band (he's on guitar) just released their promo on youtube I have produced/recorded/mixed everything, and did drums too because they had no drummer at the time. I want some opinions on the mix! This is "just" the promo, so any suggestions until the album is welcome!

  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi all. Considering getting a Two Notes Torpedo Live unit. My main goals are to have a way to get really good 'cranked up' sound from a full-size tube head into headphones for quiet playing and also for recording silently. I have tried a few of the cheaper modeling options (Guitar Rig, BIAS...

    I've been battling my Kemper to get a decent sound the last two weeks and I'm getting really mad, I can barely sleep at night, wake up at 4:00 in the morning last two weeks to go up and start tweaking the profiles, reamping in ad finitum and the drums follow the same pattern, tweaking the reverb...

    I have a MKIV GTI with 53k miles. It's a peppy car, and I want to make it faster, but putting $1200~ into exhaust, intake etc etc makes it something it's not. It's a FWD practical hatchback. So, I figure I could get a tune from APR for $500, get a guaranteed second off my 0-60, 8PSI peak to...

    Gents, I am in the market for for a new Axe because....why the hell not. I came across this model because its essentially everything I want (alder body, 25.5 scale, trem, comes with a good pup set....although I may change the bridge to a distortion, maple fretboard) and the finish is just...
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well I have a friend selling one, some kind of V30's in it, tall like mesa oversized etc.. He will give it to me for $200. So who has played them? And what do you think of them?
