    Simple PAs for Vocal Mixes?

    I'm setting up a rehearsal room for low volume practices and jams. About 16x16 spacing. We'll use some amps (maybe modelers) at lower volumes, electric drums, and 2-3 vox. I may only need 4 inputs to the PA/Mixer. I'm thinking a simple PA head with a few decent but simple speakers. Monitors...

    Question for the folks doing their own Tech/Repair Bus

    How do you deal with sourcing parts/pickups to do work for someone? Do you have the client bring their own or do you source for them? If you source for them, how do you deal with that in terms of your invoice to them? Do you have a resell license? I started my LLC last year and I'm doing very...

    Grounding the trem claw on the Strat

    I'm doing a Strat build and noticed this Squier doesn't have a route through the body into the cavity for grounding. I realized I haven't hardly set up any trem based Strats, as I don't really use them myself. Where else do you/can you attach the other end of the trem claw grounding wire? The...

    Squier Pickguard to 11-hole Fender Pickguard?

    Are some of the holes the same pattern between the two or is it all misaligned and the pickguards aren't even the same size? I want to get this pickguard linked below for a project but not sure they offer the right pattern. Fender Stratocaster Blue Floral Silver Metallic Pickguard – Quick...

    Rehearsal Room Setup Question

    I have 16' x 16' music room that I'm going to get ready to handle some band rehearsals I have one large window to the outside (it's a basement room though so sub ground level). When it comes to noise leaking outside, would it matter where I situated my closed 2x12 amp/cab? I have two choices in...

    Stringjoy vs D'Addario

    I'm a LONG time D'Addario XL user. Occasionally I'll string up another set...a few Bare Knuckles pickups have come with the Rotosound yellows. I like those but they seem to fade a bit faster. The D'Addarios seem to have some zing to them. They're on the stiffer side, as I understand it, but I've...

    Widening a hole in a pickguard

    I'm looking to do this...take an existing 1/8" hole and make it bigger for a kill switch. However, I don't want to widen it from center because it will be too close to the other switches. This is what I'm trying to do What's the best way to go about widening the hole like this in the pickgaurd?

    Question for Mojotone Quiet Coil P90 Users

    Did you compare the Hot to the Regular? In reading up, it seems like the quiet coil technique knocks off a bit of the oomph. The regular bridge is around 8.6K and the hot bridge is around 11K. I'm thinking though that the Hot just has some more oomph in the bottom end/low mids. I'm trying to...

    Getting the position right on a ON/ON/ON mini toggle

    So I'm going to do up my Strat with two mini toggles on an HH strat. Each mini-toggle will do series/split/parallel for each humbucker. I want the switch to be in series when facing up (towards me) and then be split in the middle, and parallel when pointing down or away from me. I have ON/ON/ON...

    Tool to cut down a 3-48 thread humbucker height screw?

    I have wire strippers that go down to 4-40. I've been looking online and can't seem to find any wire strippers that will go down to 3-48. And, Stewmac stopped selling shorter humbucker height screws it seems. Thoughts on other ways to make a clean cut to a screw like that?

    Looking for some HH Strat Pickup Guidance

    I have a custom, hardtail Strat that is pretty full and resonant, and not overly bright. Right now it just has a BKP VH II pickup in the bridge and it's wired on a 3 way switch to go series, coil split, parallel. I find I'm missing the in between and neck pickup tones. I want to go back to an HH...

    For those using the Injector/67/Injector set on their Strat...

    Where did you land on the pots you used? I'm going to keep the tones at 250K and change the cap from .047 to .022. My goal is not to have Strat levels of brightness per se. I'd actually like it to fit closer to more of the treble content of my PAF-style humbuckers on my Les Pauls. So to me, the...

    Other than Dimarzio, who else has cream that matches closer to Gibson cream?

    Seymour Duncan and Suhr definitely do not match nicely with Gibson cream bobbins. Their cream matches closer to the pickup rings and is what Dimarzio calls Aged White. Gibson's cream has more orange in it and is closer to the color you see on the binding...kind of an aged look. Again, Dimarzio...

    Marshall Origin 20H as a pedal platform?

    I'm leaning towards picking up the Origin 20H for a clean pedal platform of the Marshall variety. The drive/gain staging set up on my board will look like this: Crunch Channel = Tech 21 British Crunch + = Timmy into Tech 21 Lead Boost (front) = Archer (Klone) into the Timmy or Tech 21 High Gain...

    The old analog "modeling" gear still sounds good

    Someone sent me this and I had forgotten about Steve Hackett. He's doing this on a SansAmp GT2, recorded in Jan of 2021. Not sure of the full signal chain, but that's his "amp" here based on what Vintage Guitar magazine is saying in the vid caption. He gets into a distorted lead line at the 3min...

    How does the UAD Apollo Solo stack up as a sound card (without the UAD plugins)?

    If I'm not investing in the UAT plug in universe, is the Apollo Solo better, worse, or the same as other USB Audio interfaces? I have the Apollo Solo now. While it was expensive for my use case and I don't know that I want to spend on the plug in universe it has, I'm OK with that if the pres...
