  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I'm putting together another small rig & the preamp will most likely be an Engl E530 for the preamp. I tried the Engl running into 1 side of a Mesa 20/20. Very nice indeed. So...... What else is out there in terms of a 1-space tube poweramp? 2-space hasn't been ruled out, but I'd prefer...
  3. Music: Recording Studio
    I'm running out of space in my music room, so I need something tiny that still sounds half decent. I'm tempted to pick up another set of AV40s, but ideally I'd like something about half that size. I'll rarely use them, just to A/B against the HS80s. Go.

    I picked up a used electro harmonix small stone phaser and it arrived yesterday. So far I'm loving the sound out of it. It's very warm sounding and will sound great on some proggier clean stuff! It's one of their nano series pedals so it's not in a big casing and has the normal 9v adapter, a...

    The above build sheet and mockup picture is for a 10 piece "Small Batch" run I'm doing in conjunction with some of the guys on the Jackson/Charvel forum. The guitars will be built in the Jackson Custom Shop and will be a slightly modified version of Phil Collen's (Def Leppard) PC1 Archtop. They...

    Since I have 3 pedals on the way, I'd like a neat way to keep them, uh, neat. I need space for 4 things total - the 3 Strymon pedals (which are wide) and a Wah. Behringer PB600 Guitar Floor Multi-Effects Pedal: Musical Instruments How's the Behringer PB600? Is there something else...

    I got my Laney GS212IE 2x12 cab and the Rocktron Velocity 300 power amp today I got this to use with my POD HD500. So far I like it very much, but I haven't been able to really crank it up yet. The problem part: I just inspected the cab closer and found a small spot where there is a tiny...

    Has anyone used 8s or smaller? Smallest I've found so far is Billy Gibbons signature sets. He uses 7-38 on his live guitars! That's right, 7s! Reverend Willy's Mexican Lottery Guitar Strings 6/set - Guitar Gear I use 9-46, but I'm so tempted to try his 7-38 set for shits and giggles.

    New belated car day. I finally got chance to take a few quick daylight snaps with my iPhone the other day. It needs polished and a few bits and pieces sorted, but other than that, I fucking love this thing! Btw, the number plate ain't mine, it's coming off soon :lol:

    Just got my gibson body/neck and I discovered the studs to the tailpiece are just a tiny bit too small. Now I know they are supposed to fit snug, but is there any way to use these studs without doweling and redrilling? I see some from stewmac that i'll get if not, but if possible i'd like to...
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    This question has been coming up a lot lately so I think it is time we had a thread for it. With all the cheap, low wattage combos and heads out there I think we need a place to share our experience with some of the different models. By cheap I mean less than $500ish either new or used. I...

    So, being that I can take on normal person hobbies, i've decided to take a look into building a bass. I"m not going to be doing this for money, or for other people. I just sort of want a project and this sounds like fun. I'm sure after sanding something for 10 hours, i'll think it's less fun...
