The brand new Marshall Group will combine Zound Industries and Marshall Amplification in one group with revenues of $360m and double-digit profitability. The Marshall Family will be the largest shareholders and Terry and Victoria Marshall will have seats on the group's main board.
I am not the person in this Reddit post, I just saw this.
Guy claims to have ordered a board from a "large online retailer", and instead of just a board.. received a board w/ a ton of unknown Walrus pedals. They seem to be a budget line (to compete w/ JHS's "Series 3"?)?
Possibly a demo board for making videos to be released around the same time as the pedal line is released ? Possibly upcoming NAMM? Could be total BS? I'm not a Walrus person, but these don't look familiar and some...
Despite me redrilling a new pickguard and repositioning the controls as far away from the strings as I could manage, I still managed to constantly turn my volume down at last night's gig. I'm on the neck pickup most of the night and do a lot heavy strumming, playing funky rhythms, and I kept dropping out from turning myself down.
What is the solution, besides not using that guitar at gigs ever again? I just tried putting rubber washers under the knobs but because I have CTS push-pull...
This thread isn’t meant to be about patting yourself on the back, but it IS nice when someone compliments you on your playing.
For me, I play in a tribute band (Bon Jovi). As we were taking pictures with some audience members after a recent gig, someone asked me if I had really studied Richie Sambora over the years as he felt I did a really good job playing his stuff. That’s when I told him “no…I actually learned all these songs in just the past month” LOL. Felt good to know someone...
Joe Perry reveals he used Fender Strats to record most of Aerosmith’s ’70s material
-By Matt Parker( Total Guitar )
The Aerosmith legend explains why he considers Strats to be superior studio guitars, while Gibson Les Pauls make better live instruments.
There are only a handful of players more closely associated with the Gibson Les Paul than Aerosmith’s Joe Perry. Yet, as he reveals in a new interview, much of his classic recorded material was recorded using Fender Strats.
I wish bigger bands would go back to just playing their songs well onstage, and putting on a good show without the need for these huge intricate “Las Vegas show” type stage setups. Maybe that would allow ticket prices to come back to earth.
I just want to see a good concert, I don’t need a Broadway production rolled into it.
I played guitar as a kid and strictly played production stuff and cheap copycat guitars (Jay Turser, etc). I took about a 10 year hiatus and got back into it about 3 years ago. My observation; the market is saturated with tons of boutique guitar, amp, and pedal alternatives to the stuff I was accustomed to revering as a kid.
I jumped back into the market with a EBMM Cutlass RS HSS (super expensive) as I was led to believe it was going to be an order of magnitude better than the standard...
I'm wondering what has been the most popular, most sought after, most purchased sig' guitar of all time? I imagine it is impossible to pull data to make the answer legit...but TGP opinions are roughly equivalent So what say you?
My argument would be for the Peavey EVH signature guitar.
Btw, Les Pauls and Fenders don't count unless they have an additional artist's name on them (i.e. Slash, Gilmour, etc.)
As we all know its not only the tone and resonance, feel, playability ( and where they are made ) are a huge part of why certain guitars are worth ( im sorry, PRICED AT) thousands of dollars.
But this video shows why sometimes its just the name and/or the fact that they are old
I would never EVER pay 60k or even 5k for a Strat ( and i love Strats)
Needless to say , i'm not impressed by vintage ( im sorry, OLD) guitars
