  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Never felt the need to post something like this before on a subject that I figured would be explored to death... but I've decided to get a Jackson Rhoads, but having a hard time picking through the litter. They all seem to be missing one or two details that I want... except for the RR1. Maybe...
  2. General Music Discussion
    "If you walk into most music stores, there's nowhere to sit. Give me a break! Most stores aren't comfortable places. You don't have the people in the stores that care [that there aren't any new customers].They put all of these guitars on the wall, and they put the best ones out of reach. Because...

    Wanna give these puppies a try again. I tried the 7 string version a long time ago in a Loomis and dug them somewhat, they just weren't right for that guitar. However I think they might remedy my tonal woes with one of my current guitars. EDIT: After a Seymour Duncan Distortion (TB-6)

  5. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    I'm having some trouble with a bass a got new back in April. The neck has too much relief but the truss rod appears to be as tight as it will get. If I loosen the truss rod it does what it should and adds more relief. Fender specs say .012" / 0.3mm and I can only get it to about twice that...

    I *think* this is close to what I used to get. They've changed things around and now they call this a "jazz" version.. haven't ordered 'em yet, but the .011-.052 is pretty similar - can't find out if the g is still wound on this "jazz signiture" series =/ I like the old packaging better too...
  7. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    By necessity I mix a lot on headphones. I wanted to get a neutral pair of closed ones, and following reviews I chose ALG 271s. However, they sound really strange, extremely tinny with very low bass and exagerrated treble. They're not meant for listening, but I always like the way things sound in...

    a local webhost here is blocking mail from our domain to domains they are hosting. Complete PITA :pissed: Were are getting tagged: 550-(Heuristics.Phishing.Email.SpoofedDomain) (ClamAV fail) I think it doesnt like the fact that our mailserver has a different ip than our domain name...
  9. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So, I got my 8 string back today, and the pickup is still (not surprisingly) weak, and barely gives a signal. It's wired with 1 master vol push/pull and 1 tone. Neither of the pots do anything when I turn them, the signal is weak and pops n clicks sometimes. I haven't a clue what I'm doing here...
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So my RG seems to be having issues. I have enough relief on the bass side, but my treble side it always too flat, or even backbowed a tiny bit depending on the weather and buzzes a LOT more than I would like, but only so on the high strings. I'm thinking it's twisting from uneven string tension...

  12. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    So, as you all know, I ordered my RGD last week with a company called Thomann from Germany. I've bought pick-ups from these guys before and they were awesome. It should have arrived on my birthday on Monday, or yesterday at the latest. However, it turns out, my card had been locked down on the...

    Right, here's my issues. I have 3 cabinets in a main server room. 2 with switches and patch panels in, 1 with a server in. The server cab has a fibre panel in. We also have 2 cabinets in a 2nd room (CGD) in the factory, both with switches in, one with fibre. Both of the mentioned fibre panels...

    I've got a pretty old cable modem, I bought it back in 2004 because I did not want to pay a monthly charge to the cable company to rent one of theirs. I'm not sure if my problem is the cable modem or what, but I'm sure upgrading it couldn't hurt. Here's my issue, sometimes the internet...
  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So last night me and my other guitar player were sitting down trying to dial in tones. For shits and giggles, I asked him to crank his 5150 to see just how loud it could go... Holy fuck, was it insane. My lil RoV simply couldn't hold a candle to it. Once I go past 12:30-1:00 on the Output I run...
  16. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So I was looking to construct a Harry Kolbe "Concert" 4x12(Like Buckethead uses). Got the demensions and everything... until I priced the ElectroVoice EVM12Ls. $195 each!!! Anybody know a comparable speaker for maybe under $100?
