Hi. I just nailed down the symptoms of an issue I've had from time to time when playing in church. I play a VG Strat through an AX8 - direct to FOH. I've lately noticed that I get snaps, crackles and pops when I unmute everything, but only during Communion, as people start walking around the...
I got this new in 2011. I LOVE the unplugged sound. I don't like the plugged in sound. I also don't like the fact that the recommended cable for the ES to sound its best is TRS, meaning as soon as I plug into pedals I lose that "quality".
So, I'm thinking about replacing the ES. Is that...
I've seen several youtube reviews and TGP posts, showing and discussing what their amp knob settings are. You people are crazy running your amp that loud. People keep talking about not having enough headroom in a 15 watt amp. I set a 15 watt amp to clean as loud as it can go, and I cannot be in...
I have one. It's pretty much the only electric I use. I almost never use the modeling, but I'm thinking about doing that more. I revisit it every now and then, and the tele and the 12-string are real nice.
Anyone else have one? Anyone using the modeling features?
I have a Taylor 314ce that has a bit of an noisy buzz when plugged in. It's always been that way, but it's minor, and I never got around to getting it checked, and I don't plug in that often.
Anyway, I really should get it fixed. It was a gift, brand new, from my wife 3 years ago. She had a...
The Mesa TA-15 has settings that go up to 25W. I'd like to put a Alnico Blue in there, and they seem to be rated at 15W. Is that OK, or do I need to go to a 50W Alnico Gold?
Would there be desirable side effects to a lower wattage speaker?
What do you all think of this?
I've been considering a Tech21 Liverpool, but I'm rethinking that now... I could still use my tube amp head with this thing... which is, I guess, an attenuator?
I just set up my Tim pedal to run on 18v. I knew others had commented that you end up with more headroom. I didn't really need that for the normal channel... but... I was really interested in making the Boost channel less of a gain boost and more of a volume boost. At 9v, no matter what I did...
Are there any demos of this? Nothing on the scumback site, and nothing on youtube. I know it's recently released, but I am very interested. I'm particularly interested in running line-out with zero output (no speaker connected).
I've been using a homemade (plywood) board for a while, and I want to switch to store-bought, to make it lighter, and easier to carry (in a bag instead of killing my back holding it level).
I think the Pedaltrain 3 is what I'm looking for, but never having worked with a store bought board, I...
For those who are able to play fast... i.e. shredders, I suppose.
How did you get there? Was it as simple as seeing someone do it in GC, and you went home and started copying EVH leads at the age of 14?
Or was it hard at first, and you had to work your butt off with drills and such to...
I've been playing for 35 years and cannot tell the difference between a lot of stuff you guys go on and on about.
I'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between:
- a Strat and a LP.
- OD and distortion
- Fuzz and distortion
- P90's and some other pup
- 12s and 9s...
