  1. Music: Recording Studio
    Recently purchased a Yamaha MG10XU mixing console to use for my podcast and decided to use it as my audio interface as well so I can hook up all my recording devices to one unit and control the levels independently. However, I've been trying to get audio to come out of my KRK Rockit 6s and...

    Yamaha Announces Acquisition of Ampeg We'll see what comes out of this, but with Yamaha's interest in the amp field lately, I'm hoping this is good news. There are a couple of Ampeg amps guys use for stoner rock and clean blues - but the prices on the used market are insane. It will be...

    Picked up this beauty, just over a week ago. I chose the sunburst model and was awed by the quality as soon as I got my hands on it. Weighty and really solid, it oozed class. Wonderful finishing and a beautifully carved top. It has a similar neck profile to my Les Paul but with a flatter radius...

    Well, it wasn't planned, but we now have two acoustic-electric (AE) nylon string guitars in the house and the old Crate GFX-65 isn't really cutting it. Anybody have experience with Fishman LoudBox or Yamaha THR-5A? The LoudBox is more overall versatile and essentially a modern acoustic version...

    Im really trying to move away from Headphones to play Guitar and decided to get a nice practice Amp instead, Settled on the THR10x. Yesterday a co-worker lended me the THR5 for me to check how the sound of it would compare to my Creative 2.0 T20 speakers: Its Night and Day!!! The Creatives...

    Boy I love me these cheap as hell 80's shredders. The gold flake on this is impossibly awesome. I don't know whether it is an original color or not. There is hardly any information on these out there. It is super high quality. RG550 quality. Funnily enough the bridge on this is the exact same...

    Here is another interesting and underrated guitar from Japan. A Yamaha RGX-1212R, one variant from the RGX-1200 Rock 'n' Road series. In the mid-to-late 1980s Yamaha made a valiant effort to dive into the high-end Super Strat market dominated by Ibanez, ESP and Jackson/Charvel. The RGX 1200...
  8. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I also have this up on ebay with a BIN but figured I'd put it here also in case anybody wants it before it gets picked up over there. Here I am asking $200 and that includes CONUS shipping for free. It's in perfect condition, did not get much use, will include the original box and all...

    Same Variax guts as far as I can tell, but looks cool. Also, 27-inch scale.
  10. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Selling a pair of lightly-used (about 20 - 30hrs of actual usage) Yamaha HS8's. They're in mint condition with no cosmetic blems or damage whatsoever. I ordered these brand new from Musician's Friend in April 2014. The reason I'm selling them is because they're simply too large for my tiny music...
  11. Guitar: Tech, Electronics and DIY
    When I played it a few days ago the palm of my hand somehow rubbed along the edge of the fretboard and split the paint/lacquer loose on that spot. The paint did not crack, it's still there, but it's not sticking to the fretboard. It's hard to explain this, so I attached two pics at the end of...

    I remember watching this clip some years ago, and I just recently stumbled on some other clips where someone played this Yamaha Pacifica 611, and I now got some serious GAS for this guitar. I have not bought a 6-string guitar in 15 years or so (and nowadays I mostly only play 7s) but for some...

    Hello lads and ladies, Your friendly porn towell here checking in from dirt-hole afghanistan. I got a 7 string and a Yamaha THR10x out here and got to toying around/recording some tunes. For such a cheap setup, you can get some very decent tones out of the thing. Here's a little tune I wrote...

  15. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Hey guys (I'm new here :) ) I've been looking for an FRFR speaker to use with my POD as back-line for stage sound (I would also send a D.I from my POD to FOH). I came across the Yamaha DXR 15 and wondered if it would do the trick (and do it well). Does anyone have experience using the DXR 15...

    Hey guitarist, I need new pickups to my Yamaha AES620, it comes with Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz. I not like it anymore, is very noisy and bad conditions, I'm looking Dimarzio pickups and Bareknuckle pickups. My guitar is Les Paul type. I need it to play with my band (Nu Metal).
  17. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Clearing out some space, selling a couple of things. Money is king but I am always interested in trades for rare/prototype Ibanez guitars, especially 7 strings. Also interested in the USA custom graphic series. I am actually on the hunt for an RG7421XL or another RG7680/7681 if someone is...

  19. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Got a pair of Yamaha HS5's in a gear trade with a customer and they're not something I have use for as I use a pair of Presonus E8's. I have them listed on Gumtree and soon eBay for $350 but I'll offer them for $300 plus shipping to anyone on the board. Obviously wouldn't be worth sending...
  20. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This one is an absolute beater that I got for peanuts, but back in 1988 it was pretty much the most expensive guitar that Yamaha made. That shows in the extremely high quality of the fretwork and the good tonewoods--5-piece maple/mahogany laminate neckthru, with mahogany wings and ebony board)...
