  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I changed out the stock Carvin bridge pickup in my DC747 for a Dimarzio D Sonic 7. It's made a little improvement but it just doesn't have the clarity or 'push' that I'm after. I'm after something that can give me the clarity and punch that my Warmoth Strat has (it's totally different compared...

    I can't remember for the life of me who they are, but we've discussed them before. I think it was a bunch of young kids from Brazil, though I may be making that up. Band was like two words (eg: Into Eternity). Not particularly famous, but super high energy and awesome stuff that sounded like...

    Has anyone done this? When I had it on the floor, it just sounded boomy, weak, and unpronounced, but I built a box so I can hear the speakers since they're at head level when I'm playing and now I get the hype behind the 6505+ and the gain on the lead channel where I had it which was 5 is now...

    I don't like SD3 anymore EDIT: removed Rocka (tm) crazy rant
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy my first amp and I've been looking at an AC15 for a while now, I love their classic rock tones and when I've played through software emulations of them, I've found that I can get a satisfying stoner rock/doom sound out of them, but I know software and real life...

    I did a quick comp recording with the LTD and both Jacksons in all three combinations. Which do you think sounds best?
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I picked up used EC-400VF not too long ago, I knew when I bought it that the bridge pickup was lacking output, but I figured I'd be swapping pickups anyway so no big deal. Yesterday I installed a Dimarzio crunch lab in the bridge and I also put in a new volume pot just in case that was the...
  9. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    As the title says. I'm really wanting to add a strat to my arsenal in the near future, but in all honesty i'm really a tele guy. I've been rocking teles for years, and while I do have other axes, either building a parts tele or modding a nashville tele to have 3 strat singles and a 5 way switch...

    do you think the sounds in this beat work together? They seem pretty chaotic but I wonder if it's too much for a songwriter to work with

    What you like of those? I tried the same riff on two profiles with two different settings each. (the short snare fill determines a new setting kicks in) 1 = HR50+ 28 no EQ 2 = HR50+ 28 with added +0.5...

    I wired the Spectrum so that the middle position of the switch was the neck pickup, so that position 2 (or 4, depends on which way you are going) is neck and bridge and it sounds better for the kind of stuff I play than pretty much all the humbucker guitars I've ever had. The Explorer beats it...

    Honestly I never really played SSS guitars, but I'm enjoying one these days, and I know a lot of people talk about those positions. I can think of a couple and have obviously heard a lot over the years, but it's never been my thing so I never paid attention, so I'll defer to you guys. Link it...
  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    As incoming gear days are now a thing I thought I'd post this up! I just won a gsp1101 on eBay for £130 including shipping! I know its it's no axe fx in terms of amp modelling but I've been looking for an fx processor to use with my mark IV that will do 4cm and minimal tone suck (context...

    *Edit, Was supposed to say harder than it sounds... I was thinking, I have some stompboxes that are not MIDI controllable, but I sure would like them to be. Would it be possible to wire a transistor with, or in place of the bypass switch? Since my (faux)MIDI footswitch was made and programmed...
