    Hey all, I "have" a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 but I have no access to it at the moment because of some dramatic nonsense from a bandmate. Bullshit aside, retrieving this doesn't look feasible any time soon and neither does retrieving stems for my band's EP... So re-recording entirely may be the...

    The wife and I are wanting to get bikes to help pass the quarantine time. I know next-to-nothing about bikes so I'm looking for some suggestions. We live on a gravel road, and will mostly be riding on that, or on dirt paths. We will not be riding on pavement much, if at all. We also won't be...
  4. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I’m done kidding myself and I am ready to get an amp/setup that’s appropriate for my needs. I’ve always wanted to have a real amp and “real” setup at home from a purist perspective but I just don’t have the time or patience for it anymore. Yes it’s fun having a real amp and real cab and a...
  5. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Anyone have any experience with ABY switchers? I want to be able to split my signal into two rigs. I was originally looking at the Mesa Switch-track because of the midi capability, but I realised I just wanted it because it's Mesa and actually don't need the extra control. Right now I'm looking...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Building off this thread: https://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/guitar-gear-discussion/102882-issue-tc-electronics-flashback-x4.html This is still going on, and while I spent most of the last six months on a road bike, I play a lot more guitar over the winter and I kind of want to get serious...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi all, I'm looking for some recommendations on a quietly powered pedal board that can fit and power the following pedals (and potentially a couple more in the future:) Airis Effects Hades Gate Airis Effects Savage Drive Strymon BigSky Strymon Moebius Korg Pitchblack Tuner pedal Thanks for...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Annnndddd... once again I'm caught up in pickup analysis paralysis. Here's where I'm leaning (think OSDM/Doom/Thrash stuff): Spend more: SD Black Winter - $115 Elysian (budget line) Trident II - $75 Elysian Hellfire - $100 Dimarzio Super Distortion - $85 SD Pegasus - $90 or, maybe since this...
  9. Music: Other Instruments
    Total (drums,cymbals,hardware, etc) , I always enjoy learning new instruments to write stuff from a new perspective, and I already do guitar and bass. I would rather buy something used (or new) at a slightly higher price I can resell if I decide it's not for me, than spend $300-400 on a POS...

    Heading out on vacation to SF next week and have been trying to research places that I could visit with some sort of thrash heritage :yesway: Anyone have any suggestions?

    I'm broke, but could scrape up some dollars for a decent road bike that might occasionally hit the dirt/trails but nothing crazy. i'm a big big at 6 feet/230 pounds. halp, i'm so out of my league i don't even know where to start. I currently have a heavy gary fisher bike(looks a bunch like the...
  12. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'll be getting some tax money back in the next month or so :yesway:, so I thought now would be a good time to get the tools I need to start working on the frets on my guitars - one of which has large grooves in the frets, and another has never been levelled. From my understanding, to do this...
  13. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Seems like 2017 is "upgrade your gear" year for me. It's time for getting a new amp, and there are so much awesome choices these days that I'm a bit lost after using the same amp for +10 years. Most of my current live playing is my cover band. We play all kinds of crap, so I'd appreciate...

    As an avid consumer of medication here in California i love listening to music under the influence and would like some of your recommendations. My current favorites: Tame Impala Floyd Chino Moreno(everything) HUM The Contortionist QOTSA
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I bought a stoptail version of the Peavey HP Special CT (curve top with Floyd) that I picked up a month ago, so now I have 2. The necks on these are oil-finished birdseye maple, along with the fingerboards. The Peavey forum posts the following advice regarding the cleaning of the Wolfgang...

    So i've been commuting by bicycle for 6 weeks and pretty much plan to stick with it. Also have been getting into it a bit as a hobby and have been hitting a few trails near by. Mostly have been road biking however. I have a pretty solid import which I plan to keep as a loaner but am looking...

    Any recommendations for vocaloid software compatible with GB (if at all possible)? I'm really just looking to punch in spoken words so it doesn't have to be anything too complicated. I just want a wide array of different voice types.
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Vintage are a UK brand, making guitars in the far east for super cheap, but they always surpass their price tag by miles. Mr S has their version of an SG which smokes most Gibsons I've played, and since then I've wanted one of their Les Pauls. Fast forward about 7 years, and I finally got one...
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I have a PRS SE singlecut that's probably from 2008 or so, it's comfortable and plays pretty nice but sounds a tad lifeless. Looks like this guy: I'm going to replace the stock passive pickup, just in the bridge for now. My first inclination was to get a Dimarzio X2N in there since I had...
  20. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've got both of my daughters and my girlfriend's daughter bugging me to teach them to play, so any good books for teaching kids the basics that you guys could recommend? They're aged between 5 and 8 if that helps. Thanks in advance
