    Warpaint - similar bands?

    I’ve been into warpaint recently. I love their sound. Does anyone have recommendations for other bands that have a similar sound? More in regards to their guitars. Can be male or female vocals.

    Pedals all sound the same

    What’s your favorite pedal that does something new/different? (Doesn’t have to be chorus or tremolo) I’ve been researching CHORUS and TREMOLO pedals. There are a few brands doing some crazy/cool stuff, but so many all do the same thing and sound the same to me. Might just be my untrained ears...

    Tone: classical vs crossover nylon

    I have an old Yamaha classical guitar that I have had for almost 30 years now. The tone is decent, but the neck has always been hard to play. I have been thinking about getting a crossover nylon string. I like the ones with cutaways and electronics. Does anyone have opinions on the acoustic...

    Noisy Aux Send

    Board: personus studiolive 16.4.2 I am having trouble with a noisy monitor. I took a mic channel cable from our snake and soldered a trs input jack on the stage end. I used an xlr to 1/4” adapter to plug the other end into an aux send on the board. I’m using a trs cable (not an instrument...

    Pedal with Amp Sim/DI/IEM

    Hey guys (not sure if this is the best place for this, but...), I’m looking for a pedal sized unit that offers amp simulation, DI output, and the ability to be used as an in-ear-monitor (IEM). Not simply a headphone out, but aux in that goes only to headphones allowing only the guitar signal to...

    Reverb with no attack at 100%

    Looking for a reverb pedal that has no attack when set at 100%. Like an auto-swell, but not...see below. I'm trying to get a pad-like sound while moving through arpeggios. Almost like an auto-swell that completely blocks out the pick attack that can sometimes happen with most auto-swell...

    Boss RV-500??

    Any hopes for NAMM 2017? Boss made a great alternative to the Strymon Timeline when they came out with the DD-500. I would love to see something from Boss that tries to match the Big Sky. Thoughts?

    Fried my pedalboard

    Anything I can do?? I used a onespot to string together a few tc electronic pedals. The last pedal was a polytune. I accidentally plugged into the "out" of the polytune. When I turned the tuner on...my flashback and alter ego shut off and the left output of my hall of fame quit working. I...

    Any good? I recorded an acoustic guitar and saxophone. I used: sm57 for sax: great results! Blue spark for guitar: way too much bleed over from the sax Thinking about the Rode NTG-1 to help isolate the acoustic guitar. Thoughts? Better options? Thanks

    Live Recording Interface Question

    VERY amateur question. How many things can I record simultaneously with a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8? It has 4 preamps. Am I limited to using only 4 of the 18 inputs at one time? I would be recording with: - 2 mics - Yamaha Digital Piano (direct in) - 2 guitars via 2 Palmer pga-04 (load box...

    setting the truss rod

    Hey experts. I took my '95 strat into a local guitar tech for it's first set up since I purchased it. I am the original owner. He said there was basically no tension on the truss rod-which I believe because it looked like a banana and the action was super high. When I picked it up he said that...

    15-20 watt tube head

    I have a Fender blues junior that I love. I'm looking for something similar, but in a head. Bare bones, Fender tones, in a head...no bells and whistles...a simple volume and tone knob will work, ie. pro jr in a head. Please do not suggest the Super Champ. I have tried it and do not feel that...

    Palmer pga-04 connection question

    Since I'm using the pga-04 for recording I thought I'd post this here. Can I connect my pedalboard between the pga-04 and my interface? My pedalboard splits the signal for stereo delay and stereo modulation effects, but the pga-04 has only one channel. I want to have the stereo effects for some...

    Can guitar cause fuse to blow in amp?

    I plugged a PRS SE custom 24 through a pedalboard stereo into a Blues Jr and a Vox AC15C1. There was a much louder buzz than usual. The buzz was significantly reduced when I laid my hand on the strings. I just played anyway and the F1 HT fuse blew in the AC15 after about fifteen minutes (still...

    amp blew...Please HELP

    I was running passive pickups through a compressor, HOF reverb, and nova delay stereo into a Vox AC15C1 and Fender Blues Jr. Volumes were very low (family was still sleeping this morning). The amp had been on for about 15 minutes. The AC15 made a quiet snap noise and then was gone. No sound...

    Ernie Ball 25k or 250k

    I noticed a few threads for this already, but I felt even more confused after reading them. Thought I'd ask again for my specific needs/setup. I'm running: AM Strat > Boss OD-3 > (VP) > Nova Delay > TC Hall of Fame > Blues Jr. I want to put the volume pedal after the drive (buffered). Amp...
