    Around the time my son was born I had decided that a 120 watt tube amp wasn't really ideal and I have been exclusively using headphones and plugins since. In the end this was probably an unnecessary move because we have been pretty lucky in that he could sleep through anything. I am getting...
  2. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Started playing guitar seriously about five years ago. In the first year or so I was on the ball - had regimented practice, learned chord shapes and songs every week, and was getting to the point where I could play some metal rhythm pretty fast and was writing riffs and songs that I actually...

    I'm looking for a looper on a budget and i would like to keep it below $150. The only feature that is a must is that it has either usb or a sd card so i can load in my own backing tracks...any suggestions?

  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I recently refretted a 70's Greco Telecaster Custom for a friend. It was the first time ive tried a tele singlecoil bridge through my setup and it was glorious. This coming winter i'll be building a few guitars. One of which will have a tele bridge. Now i need to find a pickup to go with it. Any...
  7. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    Since getting my PRS SE 7 string last year I've played it about 4 times. It's a great guitar, but it turns out my tastes have changed and the majority of songs I was interested in playing that needed a 7 string aren't really songs I'm interested in playing anymore. So it's pretty much just...

    So, after being in the land of obscurity for a few years, I have hooked my PC back up to the interwebs. I'd like to do some videos, but I have no clue what to get. I'll begin with what I'm working with: Lenovo Win7 machine Line6 Toneport UX2 interface Reaper DAW Shitty cell phone. Cheap Ibanez...
  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I replaced the stock bridge with a SD Full Shred Trembucker and had the unpleasant surprise of discovering the pickup didn't fit cleanly through the pick guard cutout. I did manage to just barely squeeze it in, and then discovered that I wasn't really a big fan of how it sounded. So I'm...

    Just sold my XXX head, to help fund some recording gear. Looking for a cheap amp, preferably tubes. I had a 6505+, but my GSP 1101 rig can cop that tone close enough. The Jet City 100HDM has me intrigued. Anything else? Budget would be around $1000 or less. $500-$700 preferably. I could get...

    I play in an Oldschool death metal band and have been using a Japanese Boss HM2 distortion for that high mid sweedish chainsaw tone that sounds dirty af and brutal. That being said I'm kind of ahopping around for a new tone to use for our new EP, I wanted something dirty, brutal and huge but...

    Looking for an octave pedal for a new project I'm working on. Want it for down octave mainly but up octave and fuzz are a plus. Needs to have tight tracking. I watched some vids on youtube for the MXR slash fuzz and submachine and I'm leaning towards one of those. Anyone have any other...

    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...

    Okay, guys. I'm considering picking up a 1x12 cabinet to go with my Lonestar Special head... or maybe saving for another Blues Jr. Here's the deal: I'm considering playing with some friends at a local get-together every so often. It's nothing formal; just friends jamming and acting like a...

    I'm not touching the Lemonburst LP with the zebra '57s. That guitar is as perfect as anything I could ask for... it just sings. However, having compared the two, I find that I'd like the Lightburst Les Paul traditional to be a bit livelier, perhaps a bit hotter, and will probably go with...

    I have a few Hercules wall mounts which work great for my 6 strings but 7 and 8 won't fit. Any suggestions? Also I could love a nice hard case for my agile 8 String and my bowes 7 string. However I would like something nicer than one of those generic fake black leather cases which while...

    I revalved the entire preamp section about a year ago and it really breathed new life into the amp from the stock valves. Anyway, I've never revalved the power amp section since owning it, which is pretty appalling considering I've been gigging it solid for over 18 months now :lol: Surprised I...
  18. Guitar: Theory & Playing
    I've never been a lead player. I've been working really hard lately on the mechanics of my playing and I would like to try my hand at some challenging, but not too challenging solo's. Things that will help me expand my playing, but not something that will frustrate me to no end. Does anyone...
  19. Music: Recording Studio
    Ok, so almost all of my mixing experience has been on instrumental music, but lately I've been recording some folk/rock stuff with my dad and the uncle of mine who first got me started on guitar, so I've been working with vocals. I'm not too worried about things like EQ and ambiance - a lot of...

    So for about the last year or so I've been using a NUX PMS2 midi relay switcher which i thought was great - small footprint, affordable and 6 relays in total, and turns my mark IV into a midi compatible amp - but i've come to realise after slowly going through everything on my fx board its...
