    ...but it's Japanese

    Japanese manufacturing is strong across the board, so musical instruments/products get that extra benefit. Yamaha Grand pianos come to mind when I think of fine craftsmanship. Broadcast electronics also come to mind; reference gear that nearly all professional entertainment creation is based...

    Fellow Friedman JJ Jr. owners! I have a question.

    Gain isn't an issue with the JJ (or any Friedman) to my knowledge. You should be wallowing in gain by 7...what brand tubes did you install?

    My 1st gig in 5 months might be my last

    This will fade into one of the best gig stories of your life....embrace it & resume jamming. One night, I beat up the sound man at the Whisky a GoGo after he cut our banned from the venue (but returned). One of the funnest evenings, ever....

    People who flat out lie about their gear/music background?

    I was playing a gig on the beach at Windansea, La Jolla and this dude with a hot chick comes up & says he'd like to sit-in and play a couple Trower tunes....says he was Robin Trower's drummer. Robb Crosby (one of our guitar players) looks over at me, shrugs his shoulders and I say "fine, go for...

    Fender Custom Shop - When you're ready...

    I've purchased Fender CS's off-the-shelf, bought used (CS's & Master Built) & had a Jason Smith Master Built custom made. Every one has been superb and proven the best guitars I've owned over my lifetime... I would suggest searching for one that suits your requirements, new or used--if you can't...

    Nirvana Per Diem from 1992

    I had a Virgin Records (MCA in USA) deal in the 80's for $250k (for 1st LP)--we got $150 a week x 5 members, plus varied PD depending on if we were touring or not. You don't really make great money until you actually sell albums/CDs, and even then it can be murky unless you have stellar...

    Any good direct boxes that sound great for bass and guitar?

    Neve RNDI is one of the best I've used; Radial JDI is a great box that doesn't require phantom power.

    Your best "rare car found in a barn"-type amp story

    Back in the 70's, my bass players cousin sold me a clean Fender Bandmaster & cabinet for $175. Soon after, a pal that managed an Alberts Music City tipped me onto a mint Superlead 100w head with the 2 matching 100w cabs for $600--I found someone to buy the head & bottom cab for $525, getting the...

    Dem Pat Travers tones...lawd!

    I think Pat used a Lexicon PCM41 back in the day. He was way ahead of his time with guitar tone/FX. Pat was out-of-this-world live, he brought it every night and left it on the field afterwards....Pat Thrall, Mars Cowling & the great Tommy Aldridge rounded out the all-star lineup.

    G E Smith... Total badass

    For some reason GE just doesn't doesn't quite hit my sweet spot, tho I know he's a good player. He's not a very subtle player (when called for), doesn't sense his lane in a mix and timing is sometimes suspect.
