  1. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Howdy, For those who haven't seen my thread on the Falchion build, I've been painting a guitar project with nitrocellulose paint and never really thought about it much, until I actually read about it today (yes, stupid to think about it afterwards) and realised nitro wears way easier... Would...
  2. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    The story: I have a used Peavy Classic 50/50 power amp. When I purchased it years ago, channel 1 didn't work, but channel 2 did (as well as one of the LEDs for one of the standby switches). I later took it to what I thought was a reputable shop in Portland (whose name I'll leave out). They had...

    VCA, Opto, Vari-Mu, FET compressors… When to use which ? | Quantum Music Mastering Spent my lunch break trying to figure out how and where to use a vari-mu type compressor, since without some sort of threshold control the thing feels a little alien to me. This was a pretty helpful...

    ...so, I'm moving to a SQL Server environment after 20 years of Oracle experience as both a developer and DBA (though I haven't been a DBA since 9i). So, has anyone here made a similar switch? Any good books/resources for subtle differences between the two? Direct queries don't seem too...
  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    For my RG2228 project I have to insert the new posts which when inserted will trap a ground wire in the hole. So I wanted to grab a tough wire such as those normally as used on as ground bare wire. Basically I'm worried that as I insert a copper wire it will snap and I'll be left having to yank...

  7. General Music Discussion
    I used to think they both went hand in hand, but it's pretty obvious that from an industry standpoint they are mutually exclusive. There seem to be two pretty distinct types of musicians; ones that love creating music, and ones that love performing. I'm not suggesting that one is better or...

    Hey guys! Been lurking for a while and finally decided to sign up. I'm an old guy who listens to and plays other types of music but am a metalhead at heart. Looking forward to contributing and spending some time around here.

  10. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Diezel is due for a revalve. Gonna go with a quad of EL34B's rather than the KT77's in there, but, I've got the option for pair 2 different tube types. Anyone have any idea what kind of sound I'd expect from a pair of EL34B's and a pair of KT88's?
  11. Music: Recording Studio
    https://soundcloud.com/shawnmy/song-for-run-jesse-run I hate my snare sound here, and definitely need some help getting it to cut without sounding harsh. I imagine a better use of compression and reverb would help, but I don't quite know where to start. What are some of your approaches to...

    Red Bull Rampage, the unofficial end of the year's MTB competition season, will be going down in Utah tomorrow (Sunday 13 October). As in the last few years, it'll be aired live online on various MTB sites (Pinkbike, Vital, etc.). This year looks to be the craziest its ever been, so who knows...

    Ok, we're working with a vendor on a site redesign at work, and one of the things we want to add is a functionality that allows us to automatically update certain datapoints on the site. We want to have a .csv file FTP'd from a service provider containing a number of data points. We need a...
  14. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So I'm just starting out. Right now I have an Ibanez- it's really cheap, really simple. Got it from a friend years ago before I started playing legitimately. Now I'm wanting to take my playing to the next level, but I'm not sure where to go. I know different guitars have different sounds, and...

    I need to replace the headlight relay switch in my 2003 Chevy S10 but I can't find the goddamn thing. :wallbash: I've checked both fuse blocks(in the engine compartment and the one on the drivers side of the dash). I have also dismantled the dash looking for the little cocksonofabitch. :scream:
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    This is the only attempt I've seen at someone quantifying how magnets sound. I'm sure if you showed this to enough people you could start a lot of arguments. It is nice they he tried to quantify it though. Here's the caption to this picture. I got this from Smit's Handwound Guitar Pickups...
