  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've got 2 guitars that need some fret work, and I don't want to pay to have them done, but the damn tools are expensive. What do you guys recommend I buy so that I'm not overdoing it?
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'll be getting some tax money back in the next month or so :yesway:, so I thought now would be a good time to get the tools I need to start working on the frets on my guitars - one of which has large grooves in the frets, and another has never been levelled. From my understanding, to do this...

    So I was in need of a MIDI controller for Pro Tools to help me when tracking guitar and bass when I'm alone in my studio room. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, and I already had some of the stuff lying around. So why not right? First up, I cut some thin gauge aluminum sheet and bent the...

    So once in a while i see thst it goes on sale. In canada sale price is around 700 can or 560 usd. I mean sure one day i would like to have an axe fx. But that won't be any time soon. Pro tools is quite expensive but pretty sure reaper is a fine and much cheaper solution. And from what i have...

    Pro Tools | First Looks like they're aiming at the Garage Band market, but it'll be interesting to see how it compares to the full Pro Tools.

    As somewhat of a recording noob, and as something I imagine many other people would gain great benefit from, here's a thread. What do YOU think or the absolute bare essentials you need for mixing and/or mastering? Whether using amp sims/mic'd cabs/modelers etc.

    Or am I missing something? $48.70 on Stewmac: STEWMAC.COM : Luthiers Digital Caliper Vs. $15.99 on Amazon: Neiko 01407A Stanless Steel 6-Inch Digital Caliper with Extra-Large LCD Screen and Instant SAE-Metric Conversion - Amazon.com Seems a little ridiculous to me, unless you consider...

    Meant to post this a while ago. I got this fret rocker and straight edge off of eBay a couple weeks ago: Guitar Neck Straight Edge Notched Luthiers Tool | eBay Guitar Fret Rocker Level Tool Luthiers Tool | eBay They're great, and a lot cheaper than the Stewmac counterparts. :yesway:
  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I just snagged a red conklin groove tools 7 string ( like the one I had about 5 years ago), and I was planning on doing some upgrades. My question is: Is the OFR7 a direct retrofit for the bridges that are on the conklins? It's some kind of two point strat style thingamafuck. The previous owner...
  13. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    What would that be? Some sort of saw, a router, or maybe a dremel and some various screwdrivers and a drill?

    So I finally got pro tools le 8. I'm wondering for those of you that use pro tools how did you learn it? Book,DVD or just did it.

    I'm getting this for my birthday so I can lay down some tracks and really get some experience recording. Does this thing work on a Windows XP? Theres an XP laying around here somewhere so I might wipe it and load Pro Tools and get goin'!

    I'm on the fence. I've never used protools and am unsure of what the advantage to grabbing pro tools 9(not HD9) is over something like cubase. If any of you have experience with both, give me a run down of what you think.

    This is cool as hell, watching him walk through all the tiny little supporting tracks in this mix.
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I think there's a couple of us on here that use modelers as practice. I've been curious about a few things. 1) Do you dial up a tone that's exactly like your main amp? 2) Or do you get something that's close enough? 3) And then do you use the head your "emulating" to reamp your track? These...
