    I finally found my Dumble!!

    Too bad I'm short over $100k... https://reverb.com/item/28922973-dumble-overdrive-special-1989-black-robben-ford-spec Even if I was rich, that's more than $100k I would want to spend on an amp. Unless it was an investment, and the whole Dumble thing has to be topped out on the market prices.....

    What would cause a cackling sound with a guitar?

    Hey All. I have been playing for many years and never had this happen. I have a new to me 90s American Tele that had SD p'ups installed at some point. There is a cackling/cracking type noise that I am hearing that is slightly lower in volume than the guitar, but super annoying to me. I know it's...

    Fender '65 DRRI loses volume and tone after 20m to 1 hour of playing.

    So my old Fender '65 DRRI now loses volume and tone after 20m to 1 hour of playing. It started out subtlety, and I didn't know if it was a pedal/cable, cold solder joint or a tube going bad. Then it became more obvious, then once when I hit on my RAT pedal it started farting out every time I dug...

    What ever happened to Jambands?

    The genre seems to have died off a few years ago. My last band was "a band that jammed" like the Allman Brothers. We played Dead and Phish songs too, but quite a few Classic Rock covers and originals. I say we fell into the "type 1" jamband. Somehow we were pigeonholed into being a "Dead band"...

    Gig gone incredibly AWESOME - tell your stories....

    We had a lot of fun reading through the "Gigs gone horribly wrong" thread". Can we have a thread about gigs that turned awesome; without it devolving into a bunch of groupie/sex related stories? :) I've been married the whole time I've been playing out, so I don't have any of those to share...

    Anyone else dealing with diminished playing ability due to health or age?

    Hey All. I have some inflammatory issues, which I believe are due to severe allergies. About 10 years ago I realized the "rheumatoid arthritis" symptoms would bother me in the spring and fall. A year or two before I took an allergy test and learned I was allergic to everything except pet dander...

    Recording overdubs with guitar and amp in the same room is unacceptable?

    Here is a question I am sure has been asked before. I was asked to do a couple of guitar track overdubs for someone at the studio they are recording at. When I was told I don't need my amp/not to bring it I wondered why it would matter. It turns out they wanted me to record electric guitar...

    Guitar and keyboards, two small or one combined rig?

    Hey all. I know the answers will depend on what type of band I want to play with, the genre, and personal opinion, etc. What I am looking for are the simple (combined keys/guitar or jsut guitar) digital set ups that go direct to the PA and sound good enough for live playing. What are the under...

    How to intonate this monster??!?!

    I bought one of these bad boys for my 40th birthday, but my dream was to have a National Resolectric or a Mosrite Californian by then. Anyway, how the hell do you set the intonation on these trapeze tails!?!? :huh Do you adjust the floating style bridge/biscuit or the tail somehow...

    Hey All; Im wondering how to get good quality recordings (of existing songs) for looping? What I'd like to do is make some new tunes off some Beatles, Who, Zeppelin, etc. loops. Years ago I used mp3s when I couldn't find .wav files, but I also have not been on file type sharing sights for a...

    My 10 yo son's original tune, studio recorded and a video!!

    My 10 yo son is a classic video game nut. Remember the original Donkey Kong consol game from the 80's? He wrote a song about the "story". He wrote all the lyrics and his music teacher added a line to the chorus, tweeked the bridge and added music. He then sang and recorded it in studio with his...

    I finally joined the Reverend club! A Sensei 290. I wanted a short scale guitar set up with low action for a while now. I play a lot of slide and have my strats set up higher, but enough to still play traditonal fingering. Between age and lack of daily strecthing/practice my hands wear out by...

    Deciding on what pedals to remove sucks!!

    I don't like making these choices. The pedals are on my board because I like them or need them. Now it's time to re-asses the set up for two different type bands. That and I want to add ones back I miss!! LOL!! It sucks, as I'm sure you all know. :)

    What is a great SS amp head 50 watts or more?

    Hey All! I'm putting together a stereo guitar rig. While putting together items to sell to fund a nice tube head I realized that I don't really have anything of value I want to part with. So it'll be a handfull of pedals. So, for @ $200 what is a great SS amp head 50 watts or more? I realized...
