I've recently returned to playing classical guitar, and I'm getting reaquainted with old annoyances. While bending, the frets dent the wound strings. This leads to their quick demise, especially the D string. I'm assuming it's the strings to blame rather than the frets.
Is there anything to do...
I'm talking about this: http://www.jammit.com/
Being able to hear just the isolated lead guitar in songs you like, or to remove the lead guitar from the mix, is quite unique. Yet it seems there's not much activity or news on their site, and I think there's far less internet buzz compared with...
In case someone would be interested. There's a crowdfunding campaign running for an adjustable mount to hold, over the fretboard, camera phones and potentially an extra camera (GoPro only?). This is to let you shoot the picking hand, and the extra camera is supposedly for the fretting hand...
I'm after some basic 1/4" plugs. Anyone had good or bad experience with cheap ones from China on eBay?
For example, these:
There are some others, but with no inside photos it's difficult to know how it's built...
Measuring the capacitance of some cables I encountered unexpected results: cheap cables aren't necessarily worse, and might even be better. The sample size is small, but with the cheapest and the most expensive having the same capacitance, it makes me wonder. What parameters make a cable...
I have 3 Akai pedals from the Drive3 series. Supposedly the same pedals as similar ones from Biyang or GFS.
The Fuzz pedal has much more mains hum than both the Distortion and Overdrive pedals. Anyone else noticed something similar? Is there any inherent reason why a Fuzz should exhibit more...
Can you normally do a 2 step bend on the high E, high up the neck (20+ fret), on a Tune-o-matic bridge?
Just had a .010 string break at the saddle. String wasn't new, but I wonder. Should I assume a saddle problem, blame the old string, or something else?
Anyone else feels the G5 wahs are too subtle? I'm not sure what's lacking. Maybe more frequency range, or a different Q, or something else, but there's very limited configurability so it can't be done.
Some of the other filter FX are more like it, but they're not controllable wahs.
It looks like a second revision of the Mustang amps is going to be announced at NAMM. There's no point in wasting the whole week waiting for news. :) Any speculation on what's going to be new? Major additions or just build quality improvements?
I wonder, of all the digital FX and modeling gear you purchased since the dawn of time, how many arrived with problems straight from the store? And of those, how many had problems that weren't shipping damage?
(Something odd with the poll? It showed 3 votes right away.)
What's the result of mixing different voltage levels with a simple mixer, up to the extreme case of instrument-level together with line-level?
I'm thinking of:
Guitar 1 -> Mustang 3 -> FX Send -> Behringer MX400
Guitar 2 -> Zoom G5 -> Behringer MX400
Behringer MX400 -> Mustang 3 FX...
