    Ok, couple threads about mic positioning and speaker choice and whatnot, coupled with the realization that my general preference for dark, smooth sounds was leaving me with a guitar sound that any normal, sane person would call way too lacking in detail and was actually causing problems with mix...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I finally got around to removing the last vestiges of the crappy Jackson electronics in my Soloist Jr., replacing the neck pickup with a Duncan Hot Rails neck model that I happened to have laying around in my parts bin. I'd bought it brand new years ago for a project I can't even remember, so it...
  3. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So, the pickup merry-go-round in my Charvel clearly isn't over. I've settled on the bridge pickup at least (Aldrich). I'm absolutely in love with that again, maybe moreso than the first time I tried it! But the neck pickup... I've had a Duncan Hot Rails in there for a while but it's a bit...
  4. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Hello, So I need to change my button position on my guitar. I guess it is neck heavy because it continues to force it self to stay nearly horizontal to the ground when I am standing. My prefered holding position is Here are the current button positions (sorry for dirty guitar :( ) Is...

    I might get a SSS Strat like guitar soon (wife will be pissed as soon as she finds out) and even though I want to keep the Mid and Neck Singles for the "Strat Tones" but I really would like to try something else for more Punch on the Bridge side, lets call it the "80's Metal / VH Tone" on the...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ok, wanted to run this past you guys - when I threw a Duncan Custom 7 in the bridge of my Suhr, I didn't immediately realize that the middle position was out of phase in humbucker mode (I don't use it much), so I finally got around to rewiring it tonight. I'd had the Sentient in the neck wired...
  7. Music: Recording Studio
    I've been wasting many hours into reamping (Kemper + IRs) a new album recording and I've been struggling with the guitar sound. Then I thought... Maybe I should use a much more middy profile, and use a more bass/middy cab/mic placement... before I had a rather bass/trebly profile and tried to...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm building a guitar kit (ML with a Floyd rose).I have blackouts ahb-2 bridge and the ahb-1 neck in a les paul and love them. What I'm thinking about doing with the ML is a ahb-2 in the bridge and a ahb-1 bridge in the neck position so I can really destroy what is left of my hearing,even tho...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I want to do something a little more in-depth and methodical than this at some point, but I'm kinda sick of making guitar videos for the moment, having just done 10 in 4 days. But this is still fairly useful, I think. This is one take, routed through all three options at the same time, so...
  10. General Music Discussion
    So, now that I have a Strat with three singlecoils again, well, one I've been playing a lot of blues anyway, but two, I've been listening to a lot more Stevie Ray Vaughan. And, For the longest time I always associated his tone with the neck singlecoil of a Strat, but the more I listen and the...

    I bought an Ibanez JPM100 P2 and P3 recently, and the P3 (which is very beaten up) sounds drastically different to the P2. It sounds like single coils, not humbuckers. The output jack was a bit funky, so I just replaced it, and hoped that'd fix the issue, but it hasn't. I actually quite like the...

    So some of you may remember this geet I built in August last year: Anyway, I'm constantly having to retune this thing every time I play and I'm not sure what's going on. Although I know Kahlers are known to be a bit iffy in terms of returning to pitch, I'm having this issue while the bridge is...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I love my Ibanez RG350M but for the fact that the whammy bar always hangs down until I grab it and start rocking it out I much prefer the way my old school Kramer Pacer Deluxe has a "screw-on" whammy bar that allows the bar to stay in a completely adjustable, fixed place (my preference is to...
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm loading a Tone Zone in the bridge of my SC, and then ordering a Humbucker from Hell for the neck. IIRC, neck position is just regular spacing, not F, correct?
  15. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Apologies for being a little rusty after a week and a half away from a guitar (and it's bloody HOT in Boston today, so I only did a couple takes before deciding this was good enough), but I'm really impressed by how well this pickup nails the SRV vibe in the middle position of my Strat so I...

    Microphone Stand Reliability Survey Some research for a mates university project: a locking thingamy to stop mic stand drift after they've been clamped down (but it doesnt work properly).

  18. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone here had experience with this setup. I found out that one of the other stores in my chain has a DA7 neck model in stock, and I noticed that Dimarzio's website mentions that it can also be a good bridge pickup. The guitar in question is an LTD M-207 with a...
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hey all, I'm planning a pup & hardware swap on my ESP. Maple body, maple neck, rosewood board, OFR, H-S-H. I've got a Tone Zone for the bridge, an Air Norton for the neck, and once I pick up some tuners & a single coil for the middle, I'll be in business. Looking for a recommendation for the...

    I'm going to try some micin' of my cab this weekend, and have been poking around reading up on people who have mixed results (some great, some terrible) mixing an SM57 off-center/bottom-left (the usual) on a 4x12, and running a condenser centered in front of it. Any of you try this? If so...
