    Such a sick band. There's enough psychedelic prog stuff in there for any fans of Magma/Hawkwind, but the afro-beat influence is heavy. Not as crazy about the second and third studio albums but sonically the guitar/bass/vocal textures on the first one ("World Music") are perfect and legitimately...

    Hey guys, I'm looking for people to start an online band for a metal project. There is no specification with the genre of metal. I'm a lead guitarist and I've been playing for 4 years now. So, I need a drummer, another guitarist, a bassist and a singer (harsh and clean vocal would be cool). We...

    After building a huge rig, I started toying with the idea if I can build a micro rig with some mini pedals, somewhat inspired by Dave Weiner's mini pedalboard he brought to India for a festival show with Vai. So I bought a One Control and a Wampler: I did a thread about One Control pedals...

    I've had this idea in my head to write a post-apocalyptic book for a good two years now and have finally started to shape it out a bit. If I pull it off, it'll be 3-4 books starting with how everything starts and how it all ends. It won't be nuclear war or aliens, but I don't want to give...

    I've just about had enough of structural engineering. The un-relenting bullshit with architects, contractors and schedules have been taking their toll over the past couple of years and I need to either step away from it for a while, or leave the field entirely. Thus, I'm working towards...

    So, just in theory, could I start a guitar brand? I saw that Luxxtone thread and it got me thinking: when I do my absolute best, my finishes looks like this. Like, ordering unfinished good guitar parts, assemling. setting up and then selling online. Because I'm really good att setting up...

    I'm doing some stuff in D standard, and want to set up my 4-string Soundgear for it, which is a 34" scale. Does anyone have recommendations for strings? I know jack shit about bass string gauges. :lol:

    My Herbert's gained a baby brother over the weekend. I've only been able to have it at low volumes, but it seems less scooped than the Herbert (not that the Herbie's a scooped amp) even at the same EQ settings/room volume. I'm really liking it and looking forward to cranking it with my band...
  9. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    .....but it's the best thing to ever happen to me. I'm just realizing now after watching those Breaking The Code videos where the guy is breaking down pick attack and angles and everything, I don't have to deal with any of that shit. I alternate pick everything, getting to the next string is...

    Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts) On cassette first. http://www.engadget.com/2015/03/03/metallica-demo-cassette-features-terrible-drummer/ I'm actually looking forward to seeing what they'll do with Kill 'Em All as I fucking love the whole sound of that album. I wonder how badly they'll mangle...
  12. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, I've gradually been realizing I like the tone I get out of my Roadster with the gain lower - noon, 1 o'clock or so - but at the same time, it's fairly uncompressed there, which works very well for some things, not so well at all for others - the attack gets VERY prominent, for one, and it's...

    Came across a Hughes and Kettner Switchblade and Randall XL cab (the ones with V30s and speaker simulated stereo outputs) at such a stupid price I had to impulse buy it. Seriously running out of room for these things. Perfect timing too given my triaxis is out for a few weeks for repairs and I...

    I went into the shop this morning to find that someone had taken some kind of torch to the back garage door and robbed us. Only one shopmate was affected, despite all the guitars I have around the shop. James had nearly $1500 worth of tools stolen from him, and told me this morning he may...

    By that I mean 6L6's in amps designed for EL34's and vice versa. First evidence of this was my old Laney GH100TI, which ripped with 6L6's. Then came the 6534+. Much as I love the 6505/5150 sound, damn it sounds so much better with EL34's. Next up is my JCM900, typical Marshall preamp with a 6L6...

    I really, REALLY like my Randall RT2/50, as I think it really showed me how awesome EL34's are. I suspect I'll miss it if I sell it, but now that I've got my Stiletto, I've got all the Mesa EL34 tones I can shake a stick at. Soooo... After I sell the DC-10, I won't have anything with 6L6's...
