  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So I've got a Fender American HH Stratocaster, with the usual Alder Body, Maple Neck, and Rosewood fretboard. It came equipped with these Fender branded "Sidewinder" and "Black Cobra" humbuckers, which sounds OK. I'm thinking of picking up a new set of pickups and obviously the options are...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    I hated how this album sounded originally... I spent way too much time and being "exhausted" during the first mixing sessions and it just sounded thin and shit. So I asked Underground Power (label releasing vinyl) if I still had time for remixing. And so I did! A/B comparison of original mix...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I bought a 5150 a while ago. Picked it up at my favorite shop in the US for a good price. Awesome sounding head. It was $500 and I bought it the second I saw it. Took it to rehearsal after. After about 45 minutes the volume dropped significantly. Which of course led to the drummer and other...
  4. Music: Other Instruments
    First off this song still rocks to this day and Joey Kramer is solid as hell. His kit sounds MASSIVE on this record and is probably my favorite sounding kit of all time. I'd love to read or find some info into how they produced his drums on Pump, if anyone has any info I'd love to nerd out to...
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Hey all, pretty new to this site, in fact this is my first post. As the title states im looking for a guitar around the 300-500 mark for playing mostly Heavier stuff(I plan to have it in Drop D most of the time)I already have a guitar with a floyd rose that i keep for standard tuning so i just...
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    that splits really well? I used my SL2H at a jam session this week and I was amazed (and disappointed) by how thin it sounded. The JB in the bridge sounds great in this guitar. I have a Duncan 59 in the neck of my GMW that is glorious tapped or full on, but that is such a different guitar I...
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    How many of you guys have come across this? A great looking guitar that may even play great too, but when it comes to the sound it's just completely dead and lifeless tonally? And even after several pickup swaps and other adjustments you just can't put your finger on it? Whether it's just a...
  8. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Picked this up a few weeks ago from jacksonplayer. I'd been lusting after it since he brought it over a few months ago, and he was thinning the heard after buying an SG and a Les Paul back to back. This one has the same 60s neck as my Studio, which is in between the 60s slim taper and...

    For fans of George, his album Invictus dropped yesterday, so I grabbed it. Honestly, I was expecting an album of just music, showing off his drumming. Turns out it's a full length album complete with vocals and guitar done by George, and guest solos including rusty cooly. It's actually a...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I bought a set of these for my Nomad (to replace 6CA7's) while shopping for JJ E34L's, and decided to toss them into the Stiletto to get a good comparison between the TungSol EL34B's that were in there. Comparatively, I actually found them to be stunningly similar. As in, it just felt the...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm beginning to notice that my 'jamming' patches aren't translating well to live band settings, and I'm just getting washed out. Last night I turned the gain down, and added some mids/high end, but now I'm sounding rather bright and I'm not sure that's a good thing. Any tips/rules of thumb/ways...
  13. General Music Discussion
    And I am not talking about the drink....The new album is sounding heavy..
  14. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Throw a fucking EVO in it and call it. I was starting to think this guitar sounded hopelessly dark(mahogany/rosewood/bubinga), but the EVO cut right through. I have slept on this pickup for so long, and it's exactly what I've wanted. It goes from lamb of god to Steve Vai effortlessly. Cleans...
  15. General Music Discussion
    I'm pretty picky when it comes to Atmospheric Metal, or anything involving blatantly fake synths. Hate most of it. But this album has been ruling my shit for a solid 6 months now.
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Or whatever you want to call them :lol: I'm bored to death of EMGs which I couldn't be bothered to change because of the size. Now that "soapbar" 7-string pickups are widely available I want to go the most opposite to the EMG sound I possibly can (while still being able to play metal). I love...
  17. General Music Discussion
    The second you hear "Symphonic" or "ethnic instruments" you usually know it is going to be emasculated as fuck. Don't kid yourself, it's a trade off, you can't be metal as shit and sound like the Mulan soundtrack at the same time. Not the case for Rotting Christ. Seriously the only band that has...
  18. Music: Other Instruments
    So I have a TC RH450 and its a really great amp. The features are stupid good, and everyone I show it to is like "it does what?!" The issue I guess I have is the RH450 is voiced a lot like the warmer vintage-y feeling tubed bass amps. It sounds great, but I'm becoming more and more convinced...
  19. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    The purpose of this is purely to test a new pickup that I got as it's super thick & chunky sounding. I won't mention what it is to keep people guessing. The Drums, Vocals & Bass are from guitar hero Metallica stems. The guitars (two tracks one hard left & one hard right) are my Jackson DKMGT...
  20. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Guitars are odd. They're all different, but also all incredibly similar in principal, so it always takes me by surprise which one of mine ends up sounding the best. For me at the moment it's hands down my Charvel San Dimas. At practice, every time we change guitars and I change to that one, my...
