  3. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Ok maybe this video doesn't show exactly how tight they are, but of all pickups I've tried, these are the shit. I often play very fast 16th and this is the first pickup that made me go "wooohooo" about. It's specd to be very high output, but compared to a Dimarzio EVO the Evo comes across as...

    Hello guys I got myself a Orange DT and an Orange 212 closed back. I like the sound and I use it to play at home. But if I want to get a tight modern metal tone the Orange doesnt do it too well. I plan on keeping the Orange and get a second small amp that can do what i just said. Any...

    I happen to have both of these fantastic pedals sitting in front of me and I've been A/B'ing them all day to think through my set up for a gig tomorrow. I'm definitely more of a 6505/5150 guy than a Mesa guy. With that in mind, I wanted to explore some of the latest pedal tech out there. Here...

    :facemelt: Every live video I've ever seen of these guys is stellar. They're so goddamn tight, it's unreal.

    Really good grove, beautiful guitar tone, super proggy: I really like the direction the band has gone, its awesome they aren't afraid to experiment or go out side of the box of their "traditional" sound.

    Hi people. I have a EVH 5153 50 watts, but, I not like much the tone, and the cleans? Not is so good.

    I have an Ibanez RG Premium RG921QMF guitar that comes with the Tight End R fixed bridge. I see there is another version of the same guitar that would come with a tremolo Edge Zero II bridge. I'm thinking if it isn't too big a deal, I might swap bridges. I see a couple Edge Zero II bridges...

    Looking for a new cab. Currently using a Marshall 1960A with my 6505+ and it's just not tight enough for me. Any suggestions? Would changing the speakers help my current cab? Thanks in advance!
  15. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So I know that I've touted EMGs for a long time (especially the X series), but last night I tried a bunch of regular EMGs in my guitars and AB'd them with a couple passives I also had (Seymour Duncans as well as Dimarzios) and I found that... -The EMGs sounded fake -81s had a tinny bottom end...

    My MIDI controller has a big ol' wall wart, and my power conditioner is at the top of my rack space with the GMaj2 below it, so there isn't any space to plug in the FC. Enter these guys, $5 for a 3-pack at Wal-Mart. :yesway: 3 Pack Short Cord, 8" 16/3 3PK SHORT CORD: Home...

    I posted this last week on the other forum. Skip to 4:40 to jump to the playing. Probably the best metal distortion pedal I've ever heard? Only $180 to replace your preamp!? with built in noise gate, effects loop, & true bypass. :spock: Granted his VH140c power amp and cab make a...

    *This is a huge edit of the original post* The typical guitar tone control doesn't get used a lot. A lot of players disconnect it in search of that extra touch of clarity. However, it is very simple to rewire the existing pot to give you something that most metal guitarists will benefit from -...
