  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hooked up some of my gear the other day and ran my new H7 through the JCA22h into the R112 and loved it. But, I had it going through a JHS Black Box Attenuator (thanks Drache!) and my MXR 10-band, both cutting the volume as much as possible and... it was still a little on the loud side once you...

    Glenn real drums at 0:55 Glenn added samples at 1:11 Glenn yells "NOTICE THE FUCKING DIFFERENCE?!?!" Yes, the samples sounded better :lol:

    For those who are fans of the classic Boss HM-2 sound, there has been much talk for some time now about how likely it is Boss will release a Waza Craft version of the pedal. Numerous people have contacted / requested this from Boss, and recently someone started an online petition happening at...

    Going to swap the preamp tubes in my Jet City JCA22h and can’t decide between JJs or Tungsols or (insert whatever isn’t on my radar yet). Which do you think would add the best low end and grind?

    ML Sound Lab (mostly famous for good cab sims) recently launched a line of amp sims called the Amped series. I've been wanted a Mesa sim for a while, and ML's newest product is a Mark V sim called Amped ML5. It separately models all nine modes of a Mark V. I did their free trial and was...

    So, I've been driving myself mad in the past few weeks with tone. For the majority of the time I've played guitar I've used passives, primarily Duncans, but in the past two-ish years I've been acquiring guitars with EMGs and I gotta be real, I don't understand these things at all. I've noticed...

    Before: After. I call this the "Eat shit, purists" mod. Much better.

    I usually have my 101 Drums snare tuned fairly high, but I'm recording something special for the end of the month and decided to go down the 80s hole with it so I tuned it down 1 half turn on every lug and smashed a big bucket of reverb over it. :flex::flex::flex:

    Bizarre advice courtesy of Sweetwater's "6 Things Your Sound Guy HATES" article. https://www.sweetwater.com/insync/6-things-your-sound-guy-hates/ I'm not really sure what's more bizarre here. The fact that this article is written addressing musicians in bands (a promoter tipping a soundman...

    I saw some ad on a tech website for like, "10 best Premium Soundbars" and I clicked on it thinking, "Soundbars are for posers, only stereo is real, this is like, Mono shit for people who listen to Nora Jones and care more about form factor than performance". Anyways, this isn't about soundbars...

    I'm playing my second gig in like 20+ years on Saturday. I've got no experience in dialing in a good live sound and would appreciate any pointers anyone might have. We play death/grind/thrash kind of stuff. My Rig, Jackson SL2QMAH tuned to B EVH 5150III 50W Avatar 2x12 w/ V30's...

    Am I the only one who's experiencing bugs with WoS? To the point where the plugin is unusable? It's such a shame because I think that software has a lot of potential, it sounds great and has losts of options. The plugin was bundled with the Captor that I bought few weeks ago. Extremely...

    I was dicking around with different Kemper profiles and some Superior Drummer 3.0 presets and I got this result. Is this good? :scratch: I think it sounds pretty good but I need to hear from somebody else because you know how I can be with mixing and shit (or rather, I dont even like mixing...

    https://soundcloud.com/tudio2-akt/5150-test4 Still trying to make my upcoming album sound any decent :roll2: Reamping with my 5150 sure gets some kind of "liveliness" to the guitars that seems hard to capture with Kemper or VSTs... But then if I'm good at micing it up or something is a...

    Yeah!! ..timing? ...No problem.. Pitch? ...Ditto! :lol: All because of this baby... haha..kidding apart, I bought it more for live use at our gigs.. Being the only guitarist in my band I've been interested in this pedal since it was announced a while ago & have actually always wanted...

    NCD - Old Cab, New Speakers - Eminence Swamp Thangs + Governors (Sound Test) So I picked up a mint '93 Peavey 5150 cab recently for $200, but as soon as I plugged it in I realized immediately why people hate the Sheffield 1200 speakers... So after doing some research, I ordered some Eminence...

    I was looking at some amps the other day and they had two Peavey 6505+112 one new and one used. I had both amps at the same settings, but the used one sounded....it sounded a little muddied. Could it just need a once over to get everything sounding nice, or should I pass?
