    opinions on Effector 13's Punch Love?

    I've used a number of Devi's other designs, but only the ones that make insane fuzzy noises. From what I understand, the Punch Love is the same circuit as the clean boost side of the Devi Ever 05/25.

    Nel Cline bags on Robo Gibson

    I think what people are trying to suggest is that maybe there's a way to take objection to the tone or philosophical perspective of the 99% comment without sounding, you know, toolish.

    Amp for a Fender Bassvi Help

    I played mine at a couple shows through a Silvertone 1484 head (25-30 watts) and a 1x12 Weber ceramic blue dog. No blown speakers, no problems. Not enough low-string thrust - a closed cab would have been better for that - but it still sounded huge and I was able to cover a huge amount of...

    Flatwound strings... the final frontier?

    Answer: Yes, so much of a yes that I'm not sure why you weren't already using them. :P

    ProCo RAT?!? Where have I been?

    Even the new RATs are pretty badass. They don't sound anything like amp distortion, really, but it's such a great, useful sound, and the thing gets clean enough to use as a straight boost.

    How do you get feedback if the amp is under the stage?

    Alternately, you could go under the stage yourself.

    Playing with out Theory

    He's a drummer, though. The things you need to be able to do to be a great drummer are a rather different set - he doesn't need to substitute chords ever, read me?

    Bass Recommendation in the $400 Range?

    Why does he care about a pickguard? The obvious choice would be a standard Mexican-made P-Bass. Good sound, works for anything. That has a pickguard, though. My friend uses a Yamaha BB414, which has a P/J pickup setup, good versatility, and runs about $400 street. No pickguard, also. He...

    How do they SOUND though?

    wanna hear something crazy?

    [/B]Traditionally, the moral of a story is a statement rather than a question ;) A baritone guitar is tuned like a regular guitar, but a 4th or a 5th lower - B to B or A to A, generally. [B] What's the point of a bass?

    Harmony is back??!

    One trick pony my butt, that sounds awesome.

    Harmony is back??!

    I want to know if the reissues are going to cop the pickups/sound or just the cosmetics.

    Playing with out Theory

    It's another tool. You don't necessarily need theory to be a good guitarist. You don't even need theory to write good songs, depending on the style of music you're playing. I learned chord theory because I tend towards harmonically complex songwriters and sounds in my own writing, and it...

    Good, fun, cheap shredders.....what's out there?

    A used Carvin would do the trick.

    Can we talk Jazz chord substitutions?

    Psh. That's not a new song. I'm in a pop rock band and we still don't play songs the same way twice.

    Help with aesthetics of a pedal - Should I paint it? Suggestions?

    Be careful with humorous decorations, 'cause you're not likely to think it's as funny in a month. Paint or a decal could work - what do you have better skills in?

    Beautiful...african soukous guitar demo

    Thank you! One question: Is it picked with fingers, pick, how?

    One from our first album! (boutique bass content)

    Thanks guys =) I honestly have no idea... I think they were pretty much in phase to begin with, because when we threw up the faders it just sounded bigger.

    One from our first album! (boutique bass content)

    So around Christmas we, the gentlemen of Leopold & Loeb, recorded our first album in a marathon 2-and-a-half-day session. Mixing it in a few days, and then it'll be done - 12 tracks, with overdubs and whatever treatments. We're gonna call it "Life & 99." On our myspace, nestled among the live...

    Best Bass HEAD for $800 or less

    Ashdown ABM 500 EVO is a pretty damn fine amp. Bassist rented one for a gig. Not transparent, but very toneful.

    Bass amps! what the #@*$

    Man, hell no. The SVT might be the Classic ******* Rock Tone, but that doesn't mean it's a universal. My bassist found that the SVT sound was completely inappropriate for his style of play and for our music. Not sharp enough in the high end, not enough treble.
