    Bright-toned picks?

    My nails are more articulate and brighter than my Dunlop prime tone picks that I’ve been using a while. What is a bright pick in a medium thickness? thanks

    Is a Harvard/vibrolux much better than a 5e3 for home?

    I have a 5e3 that works pretty well in the basement. Not great but it has a great clean sound. Too loud for home but it works. Is a Harvard or tweed vibrolux much better for low volume home use? A few less watts and 10 inch speaker. Not sure if the volume taper is better too. thanks

    “Recently looked at” vintage amp but I can’t see the guts? Run away?

    Looking at a local musicmaster amp, only 450 bucks. I can try it but he won’t let me take a look at the guts to see how it looks. I might take my chances since it’s so cheap, but what are your thoughts?

Most places I don’t think you can see the actual finished product before buying. usa custom guitars used...

    Bridge pickup wiring, please help I'm losing my mind!!!

    Gibson LP Special, originally with quick connect pickups/circuit board. I removed the circuit board a while ago and everything worked fine. I then put in a humbucker in the bridge and all worked fine. After a while I decided to put the original bridge p90 in and I can't for the life of me get it...

    P90s sound harsh not sweet

    I have a Gibson les paul special I put some sort of “super pots” in that are supposed to test 525 ohm or more because i was playing out of a darker amp and I wanted more brightness out of the neck pickup. In reality they test about 500 but after a year or so I’m realizing the guitar sounds...

    Can I damage my hearing with a dimed 15-20 watt amp and ear plugs? practice room is pretty small so I’m only about 8 feet away from my amps. If I wear standard foam ear plugs, is my hearing protected? Think 5e3 and 6g3 amp volumes.

    Boss DD7 as a reverb pedal?

    Can I get a DD7 to work as a reverb pedal or am I better off getting a pedal specific for reverb? I'm borrowing a DD7 from a friend looking for a reverb sound and I can get it dialed in pretty good but I'm not sure if I would be better off getting a straight up reverb pedal. Thoughts?

    Boss RC-3 Looper help

    Hi, 2 Things with my RC-3: 1. It's kind of "loud" when I plug it into my signal. There is a lot more hum than without it. Is this normal? 2. Most importantly, if I'm playing as the only guitarist live, is there any way for me to record the verse or chorus chord progression live and play it...

    Gries 5/Allen Chihuahua...more like a champ or Princeton?

    I’m interested in both of these amps, but they are both based off of a fender champ, although I think the Allen has a bit more power. They both have bigger speakers and cabs than a champ. I’ve played both regular champs and regular Princetons, and I like Princetons way more. They sound much...

    Attn: Vintage Ampeg lovers

    I just noticed the amps in this great performance of Buffalo Tom live at KEXP. You can get occasional glimpses of what appears to be a reverberocket and jet mic’d side by side. Great tone! I love these amps.

    Can you identify single coil vs humbucker on most recordings? I cant

    I love guitar and amps and spend a lot of time here, but I recently realized I usually can’t tell if a rock song is using a strat/tele or a guitar with humbuckers. There are the obvious songs that are clearly one or the other, usually a clean tone. But for the vast majority If there is some dirt...

    5e3 vs 6g3 volume

    i just got a marsh 6g3 amp. Totally awesome but pretty dang loud for home even with an attenuator (Weber mini mass). It will be perfect volume for my band if we ever start playing together.
