  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum... my apologies. Considering adding SD Invaders (SH-6 & 8) to a newly purchased guitar. There is a lot of fuzz, buzz, etc. When replacing the pick ups, will it help to swap out any other items to reduce unwanted noise? Pic provided for your...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    2 questions : - Why some of their pickups have the logo on them, and some not? Bought a Tone Zone bridge humbucker for my Robin, and 98% of the Tone Zone I see are without the logo. Same goes with other models. - Received my pickups installed that way from my luthier. I trust him on what he's...

  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I've been thinking of getting one of these for a long time now and I'm convinced it's the amp for me. The only problem is, literally NOWHERE anywhere near me has any where I can try any which is driving me crazy. I know there's a load of different versions of the amp but it's probably a...
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new (again) to electric guitar and unfortunately, my wife does not like hearing metal guitar so I'm going to have to spend most of my time playing through headphones and a MacBook. As a plus side, I can do this also in the early morning and evenings without offending neighbors. I'm...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm not familiar with effects. I've watched several videos and done some reading, but am still not clear on how to set up the "Pedal Chain." I own a Digitech HT-2 (Tuner). Will this work with the Zuul? It appears that a pedal is required in front of the Zuul to split the guitar's signal...
  7. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    The net is awash with conflicting and generally useless information, and sifting through it is a proper rabbit hole, so I'm just asking for some very simple answers based on your experience. I know all the differences and nuances of using nitro vs poly etc. Fuck using nitro, shit takes a...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys! Merry Christmas to all of you! Here it comes... I'm tone hunting and I need some help. I've eliminated nearly all of my pedals... I have a Korg tuner, a Wah (thank you Beneharris for the repairs,) and an MXR Carbon Copy delay. I recently threw some new tubes in the Lone Star, so...

    Please share what is on your pedalboard.....I will start...and as you all know I have always been a blackstar guy, spent a bunch of time wondering if I was missing out so I spent a good amount of time looking at other amps, but each and every time I always go back to my Blackstar...

  11. Music: Recording Studio
    Hey guys, I have some embarrassing newbie questions I need to ask. PREAMP to Virtual Cabinet I found a good deal on an ENGL E530. Looking forwards to receiving it. My question is, what's the best way of hooking it into my audio interface? How I want to use it: Guitar --> e530 --> Audio...
  12. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    So I'm in the process of reading about and learning some theory. I'm the only person I know that really plays an instrument(besides drums) and don't really have anyone to ask simple questions that probably require 1 sentence answers. I thought I would be good to make a thread that I can ask...
  13. General Music Discussion
    Alright Gents, I have a question for you all. I know a few have been around for a while, have enjoyed many bands and etc over the years. I was just wondering if you guys had any opinions on what you make of the modern-guitarists in the Rock & Metal scene? Do you like many or not? And I...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi guys - So... I love this amp. I'm curious about a few things involving the effects loop - I'm trying to understand some of the Internet scat flying back and forth over the parallel loop vs serial loop thing and how each interacts with pedals, etc. I understand the "wet" vs "dry" signal...
