  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I've had this problem for a while where I really like my guitar sound, but I hate tracking with headphones on and being tethered by a cord. The problem is, with a 412 cab in the room, even with a mic with a discerning rejection pattern like an e609, the level of spill from the monitors gets...
  2. General Music Discussion
    Hi everyone! I've been quiet lately. I do owe some pics as I have a Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite with Bareknuckle Riff Raff and Mule. Also a vintage Marshall 4 x 12. That said I think my wife and I will be downsizing and going into condo living. What would you guys recommend? 1) Sound...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So on the Satan 50, I noticed if I use the serial effects loop the color/tone changes slightly with a bit of high end drop off (I did check and confirm this with a 6" patch cable as well just to make sure my cables/pedals weren't the problem) and that is a tone change I don't prefer over the...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I've been looking for a wiring diagram for two passive humbuckers, two volume, 3 way switch, and no tone. But I haven't had much luck. Can anyone here point me in the right direction?
  5. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    It's really hard to get this right it seems, and it's absolutely imperative for live players for convenient pickup switching, and fast volume roll-off to control feedback and mute yourself when necessary. I'm putting together a new pickguard for my So Cal, and since I requested that the guard...
  6. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    For a guy who does as much textural/volume swell stuff as I do, it's criminal that I haven't yet bought a volume pedal. Will mostly be used for ambient overdubs and faux pedal steel/violin stuff, probably mostly in front of the amp. Durability is a plus, but it'll mostly be studio use...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    The 2nd guitarist in one of my bands uses an AX8 (and I'm Kemper) In rehearsal we go into a Tascam interface, the line inputs on the back. My Kemper is set at a certain volume and gets a good signal. The other guys Ax8 gets just barely any signal at all! He's tried a few things but I cannot...

    The volume pot in my RG2610E is frozen. Can anyone tell me what size shaft I need to buy? I had an american sized one and it's too big.
  9. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I need to get my live rig up and running soon because The Storyteller has some of that coming this summer. But I am completely noob about pedalboards and shit like that. I've never used different channels before, only distortion :flex: I want: 1. Rhythm sound (RED channel) 2. Solo sound (RED...

    Where can i find something like this?
  12. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi guys, I'm looking into the logistics of putting EMGs in my Ibanez RGD and from looking at the diagram, I see that it doesn't have instructions on using TWs with only one master volume. Just wondering if anyone has any clue if that's possible at all? I'm doubtful as on the TW pot it only has...
  13. Music: Recording Studio
    I was in rehearsal yesterday and tried one thing: I connected the Send from FX Loop to my interface for the DI signal, piece of cake. Then I stuffed a guitar cable in the Return. There was a big drop of volume, but I could still hear a little treble from the speakers, but I still had some...

    As the title says, it's a bourns pot I have in a LTD. Everything works but the volume pot does nothing. The pickups are always on. It was working fine and I cannot find any issues in the wiring. I just double checked everything comparing it to a Duncan wiring diagram and it's right. My solder...
  15. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    Almost two weeks ago, I grabbed a set of EMG's that I haven't used in a few months (85/60) and the EMG solderless harness that they were originally wired up with. I've tried a several different things, so I'm going to try to be as concise as possible, to avoid typing a novel. When I hook...
  16. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi there, I have a question: I bought a guitar with a Sustainiac Neck PU and an EMG 57 Bridge. Compared to my Bareknuckles the EMG has to less output.. therefore I want to change it to a bareknuckle together with the sustainiac. It will be a mixture of a active/passive then.. But I have only...

    As outlined in the gec-9 thread, i'm now using my 6050+ as a 3channel switchable amp. clean, clean + crunch, lead The issue is clean is significantly too quiet on pre levels where i want the crunch for breakup (about 2.5-3). logical Options are - boost the clean - cut the crunch Limitations...
  18. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I've still been tweaking the wiring on my Strat now that it's SSS, and after trying the "50's wiring" approach that doesn't require the traditional treble bleed cap + resistor (and finding the volume knob became way too aggressive), I ended up going back to the more traditional treble bleed...
  19. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys. I have a little 13w tube amp that has become really noisy. To clarify, it hisses really badly when powered on but not in use. It does this whether a guitar is plugged in or not, and regardless of what volume it is set on - although increasing the volume does increase the noise. It's...
  20. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Borrowing this from my guitar tech for live playing until my Elysian RG7621 arrives. I was previously playing an LTD H207 with a single volume knob and a BKP Blackhawk. Which is not a very versatile pickup, and the guitar has mismatched 'whatever we could find lying around' tuners, as well as a...
