  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Why the fuck has the digital/analogue trend turned into such a clusterfuck? So I've got a couple of fully valve amp heads which I would like to switch the channels on, whilst also switching my fx. Great. Simple to do. Loads of ways of doing it these days. Used to have to get that maniac Bob...

    I'm kicking around the idea of finding a beater Jackson or Ibby or the like SS in a local pawn shop, then having at it to customize it totally to what I want (single humbucker, fixed bridge, tone & volume knob). Then give it some crazy paint scheme/finish. Seems like something I'd enjoy screwing...

    I bought it over 6 years ago now, and apart from one memory upgrade and a new GFX card over the years and some hard drive replacements it is still going. However, as with guitars and gear, one day you just wake up and wonder whether it is time to upgrade... Plus I've noticed it takes a long time...

    Mac to Windows I swear to god this isn't a troll post. So, I've got a 2015 MacBook Pro 15", which is a fine machine, but I'd like something lighter. My wife is blind as a bat (literally legally blind without her glasses), so I want to give her my 15", and get a snazzy new 13" MBP. The...

  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So for probably the last 5 years I've been playing on and off, but I haven't really been into it, haven't looked at gear or anything. But now I've got the bug again and I'm actually trying to learn how to play it, not just play along to Guitar Pro. Right now I'm looking at either the Jackson...

    I bought a Mark IV scroll down to post 19/20 Got my Rivera KR7, the 5150 III 50W and my Randall V2 (gonna sell the Ultra Plus). Was thinking about getting an OG 5150 but would it be too close to the 5150 III? The Randall Satan with the 6CA7s sounds absolutely nasty in Ola's tube demo video...
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm extremely happy with the sounds I'm getting out of my current rig (Maxon OD808 > Marshall JMP-1 > TC G System > VHT 2/90/2), but I'm debating a rig overhaul. There's a couple of things behind it, partly the weight/size (currently split over a 4U rack weighing around 18kg with my wireless...
  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys - Over the last couple years, I've gone through equipment like shit through a goose the day after taco Thursday. I'm sure part of it is a love of interesting, new stuff. Part of it, though, was hunting for a particular sound or tone. And, as a beginner, I often think the tone comes...

    RAM is pretty cheap these days, I've got 8, and sometimes Reaper is sluggish because I run lots of instances of plugins. Like, an unreasonable number of instances of plugins. But this is America, my right to do that is protected. Anyways, is going from 8 to 16 going to make a difference here...
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Yo, I have two main recording guitars in the tuning I use for my project which shall be revealed in not too long. The Jackson RR24 and the Ibanez RGD2120. The sound and general feel of the EMG 81 in the Rhoads has really grown on me, especially in combination with the Einstein. There's an iron...

    Some of you may remember the RG2020X I got earlier this year... Well, I don't think I included this in the NGD thread, but upon arrival, I found that it was a different guitar than the one pictured, still in a similar (if not slightly worse) condition but with a better bridge. At £350 I wasn't...

    Thoughts? I just got back from a 2.5 wk vacation with no guitar, and while it was great, it'd have been greater with a guitar :lol:
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So, after years of service I think my microcube might be on it's way out, and I'm considering getting something to replace it. I've not even been looking at what kinda practice amps are around these days, so no idea what's good or what's not, but last thing I was looking at was a Microcube RX...

    Had this late 70s- early 80s strat body kicking around and lots of extra parts. So I decided im going to buy a new neck and black pick guard and some other misc parts and make me an Adrian Smith clone. So far I have one coat of paint on. Waiting for it to fully cure so I can and fill a couple...
  17. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    so, the past couple of years or so, I've been going thru different passive pickups. some I've liked, some not as much, but also, its been dependent of which guitars they're in. without going thru the list of different pickups and hunks of firewood they've gone into, ill say that my main guitar...

    I was really impressed with Evertune when I first got it, but then I started to be all irritated because it intonated "too good" in comparison to other guitars and bass so I actually sold my Warmoth custom for a fraction of the cost to build it... I'm so fucking stupid! Now I want an Evertune...

    *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...
