    Not the most rock and roll of places to mount it, but here 'tis. Thing is completely mint. I've never really spent much time with one of these, but after 30 seconds of dicking around I was able to dial in Pull Me Under tone. So if anyone needs me, I'm just going to play the PMU riff like...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    He used the petrucci's rig patch from the axefx III which sounds pretty danko. He also didnt use any post processing.
  3. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Was going through some old videos and saw I'd done this in January 2017. Can anyone do the down picked chugs in Pull Me Under up to tempo? It's pretty darn tough. Maybe better down pickers would find this easy, but I fancy this is tougher than some more obvious examples, like something like...
  4. General Music Discussion
    This is old, from 2007, but I only just heard it the other day. It's had the kick and snare replaced (with something that's presumably more like what Portnoy would have wanted at the time). I actually really like the drum sounds on I&W, but a lot of people don't. But what I thought was cool...

    What's an easy way to do this at home with tools I might have laying around? OFR and strem studs. not overly worried about the finish of the guitar, it's getting redone. I can also use the studs too if possible, since they will be replaced, I'm not worried about damage to them

    Hi guys posted on here a couple of times about the same old thing' "what amp should i get" so this week I'm pulling the trigger on a laney ironheart studio. I'm almost certain on it. I currently have a orange dark terror which i was never really over impressed with it doesn't give me the growl...

    First brand new guitar I've bought since 2007... which was, oddly enough, another Schecter. This is the relaunched Blackjack line. Thinner necks, ebony boards, subtle inlays, all black hardware, Duncan Nazgul/Sentient combo. Want to remove the Vol/Vol/Tone with the pull on the tone and replace...

    Ibanez RARE 1989 USA Custom Shop Guitar Silver Snake Finish with Case | eBay I don't like RGs, but if I did this would be the one to get.
  10. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    This was something I noticed over the weekend, for some reason, and have started thinking about - when you play a trill, do you start the trill with a hammer-on or a pull off? For example, if you're trilling on the D string between the open D and a 2nd fret E, do you start the trill by picking...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anybody own one of these engl's? What Ive gathered is that the 15 isn't that great for metal and the 30 sounds like a fireball. About to pull the trigger on an amp and these two are near the top of the list
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I got a new custom pickup coming and the other one I have I wanna try in the neck. The old one I'm thinking of trying in the neck is VERY similar (almost identical) to a Seymour Duncan Distortion... Will it cause too much string pull? Or will it sound good even if lowered way down from the...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well i have been trying to figure out the best way to power down my 120 mono.And i figured i could pull two tubes and compensate with ohms just like my 6505 head,but the tubes are set up in a square formation not in a line. I called peavey and they said it was ok to pull the two 6l6 closest to...

    Looking for a recommendation on push pull pots to do coil splits in my San Dimas. There are a billion out there, looking for a recommendation on a good brand, etc. Also, if there is a schematic on wiring DiMarzios that would rule too. I don't do these things enough to keep this stuff in my head.
  15. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've recently realised that sluring around the fretboard with both hammers and pull offs produced a different sound than i wanted. So in order to achieve better tone i started to work on legato with hammers only. However, its hard for me to come up with ideas for practising this concept...
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I'm having trouble finding a simple schematic for wiring a humbucker with a push pull for series/single setup. can someone please help me with this… thanks in advance btw im not using tone or selector switches. just pickup, to volume knob, to output jack

    Classic John Petrucci! Short and sweet. Does this solo make my muscles look big? I dunno. Swirly Ibanez, Dimarzio's, dumb face, all my usual rot. Get into it!

    Need some help...trying to fix an earlier fuck up of mine. Rewired my PRSish guitar with a pair of Triple Shot rings and pair of push pull pots. Seems everything is working except when I pull both pots and switch to the neck pup. And then I get no sound. I've double checked the wiring...and as...

    Every one is amazing in terms of profile. Some are less amazing in terms or amount of frets left... But I guess that just means they actually got played. No idea which ones I'll actually use, so feel free to call dibs. Pretty sure the Jackson lock nut mod is non original, I would bet it...

    I got a guy who will sell me his eleven rack with the expansion kit he says. And he thinks he still has the pro tools disk. Along with a mosvalve 1160 amp. What's a good low price for that. What should I offer him.
