    I've been on a bit of a Drum & Bass/Industrial binge recently and I need something new to listen to that is...well, not that. Considering I've only recently (as in this month) gotten into Amorphis, I'm pretty sure there's a decent amount of other "big" bands I'd like that I've missed as well...

    So I swapped over from Dunlop Heavycore to Elixir Optiweb strings back in the beginning of 2018. Partly down to every damn pack of Dunlop strings I've ever bought having rusted before I opened them, partly because I've been playing less and having coated strings means I need to change them less...

    I played 9 gauge for a long time, but about 8 or 9 years ago I made the transition to 10 gauge and really haven't looked back. The issue I have right now is with one guitar. I have an Ibanez 7 string with one of those zero edge trems, where there's two large permanent springs and two smaller...

    My band's gonna need a bit of artwork for obvious reasons. Recommend me someone who's actually alive, takes commissions and does sick work

    I havent built a PC in years and I need some help. I am a Cad operator so this will need decent graphics and be able to handle 32GB of ram. Where do I even start these days?
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Now that my Axe-2 has vacated my desk and is heading to Leon's, I have some space to fill. I have a 4U studio desk, 2x2 side by side. I don't need any more preamps or power amps (already have the Axe-3, Kemper, Mesa 20/20, a 5150 and a 6505 combo). One side of the desk is my interface and...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I just picked up a Squire P-Bass for recording, but It's almost impossible to hear in a mix. So now I'm looking at upgrading the pickups to something that'll cut through a bit more. I've also heard that changing one of the pots to 500k will give it more high end. Has anyone here tried this?

    I've already got that pile of shame growing but I'm currently hungry for some good old fashioned Metroidvania style games. Preferably of the 2D kind, but I'm open to whatever. I'm not counting Dark Souls/Bloodborne as I've got those covered. The last Metroidvania game I played was the...
  9. Music: Recording Studio
    Hi, I'm using Cubase 7 as my DAW which comes with a variety of stock plugins. I remember that the Reaper VST plugins are available for download and can be used with any DAW. Do any of you use them outside of Reaper? Would these add anything to the Cubase stock plugins? I'm still pretty much a...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I have a dean MLX which is like a budget dean ML. its got a TOM bridge and string through body. Most of the hardware has been replaced but I still can't decide on what to replace the bridge with. Is heavier better? like steel or something? or is light-weight better? aluminium maybe? What TOM...

    My current favorite is the Joe Rogan Experience, but I have about 10 or so I thumb through before heading to work in the morning. I'm looking for a few more recommendations. Anything funny, intellectual, or about heavy metal I'm generally in to.
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    That aren't Ibanez/Jackson or the usual MIJ stuff. What's out there? Budget of 2500-3k. I could custom order a Suhr modern (which is probably where I'll end up) but wouldn't mind some other options. Looking for something 25.5, 24 frets, and no trem of any kind. I'm not a big PRS guy otherwise...
  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    For a guy who does as much textural/volume swell stuff as I do, it's criminal that I haven't yet bought a volume pedal. Will mostly be used for ambient overdubs and faux pedal steel/violin stuff, probably mostly in front of the amp. Durability is a plus, but it'll mostly be studio use...
  15. General Music Discussion
    Which metal bands would you recommend for a beginner/intermediate rhythm player to tackle? I've done a lot of Metallica and Black Sabbath rhythm guitar stuff (not always up to full speed). Just looking for bands that have lots of cool rhythm guitar work and nothing too technical (I usually get...
  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Looking for a decent chorus pedal. I can't say exactly what sound I'm after. Just something that sounds good.
  17. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Title says it all. Looking for a combo amp, something that doesn't sound completely shitty. That's the number one concern. It would be nice if I could record with it and get some better tones than garage band offers. Bluetooth would be cool, but not a must. My budget is aboot ₽500 Canadian rubles
  18. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So I just got one of these. The stock pickups are serviceable (quite decent actually) but it's an Ibby and they're begged to be changed. :lol: I loved the Texas Special on a US Special Tele I borrowed a while back, and was set on getting a pair of those for this guitar, but now I'm thinking...

    requirements: 7 string hard tail Gibraltar bridge $500 Like I said, he's a wanker, probably won't buy something used because 'someone jerked off then played guitar, and their cat probably peed on it.' Not making this shit up.
