    Angled pedalboards with Volume / Wah Pedal

    Hi. I'm just wondering if you guys prefer to have your volume or wah pedal on the floor even if your pedalboard is tilted or elevated? My current one is slightly tilted and I notice a bit of strain when on my calves when I rock it back and forth. I'm planning to purchase another inexpensive...

    Affordable FRFR Speaker/ Cabinet?

    I think I'm beginning to understand the appeal and portability of digital technology. I'm usually a VOX tube amp guy but I wanted to ditch that and go full digital using my Zoom G3 stomps! I'm kinda noob with IRs and Cabs but I read that you need a FRFR cab to fully utilise the IRs and CAB...

    Super FLY by Blackstar

    Just saw this and I think it is great! https://www.blackstaramps.com/uk/ranges/super-fly Anybody here has it? So I think the main different with the previous FLY is that this is louder and with the XLR input? It is not that cheap though

    Anybody here has a collection of mini portable battery powered amplifiers? I want to start to collect them and just put it on my work desk just because they look cool. I only have at the moment a Yamaha THR10 which I really like but I would not really call it a 'mini portable amp'.Waste of...

    Buying a Fender Highway 1 Strat - Are they good guitars? (Photos attached)

    I stumbled upon this amazing looking Fender Highway 1 Stratocaster in Teal Green Transparent color and I immediately fell in love with the sound and overall condition of the guitar. The guitar tech from the store told me that it is in consignment and the guy who's trying to sell it was a bassist...

    Cort X700 Duality Guitars

    Looks good on paper but price a bit on a high side for an Asian made guitar. Anybody tried this before? Just for stainless frets alone are something that you don't see often on a high end Fender nor mid-range Ibanez models...

    Using a headphone input sucks the tone out of my Vox!

    I have Vox Pathfinder 15R which I use for simple recording via a V8 Soundcard. Whenever I plug in my headphone to the input jack, the sound becomes so thin and brittle that I almost have to turn off the Treble knob. Is this normal? I don't really use the headphone jack that much. I have a...

    Yamaha THR10 Screen Issue

    I just suddenly noticed that the mini display on my THR10 is showing a "#" (sharp) sign eventhough I am not tuning it. It works well though but that sharp sign really annoys me. :( Any ideas?

    Good alternative for DiG and Neunaber WET?

    Had to finally returned my loaned effects from my buddy so my board have 2 empty spots. :oops: I mostly play Church stuff and I currently have a BOSS DD7, RV-3 and Zoom CDR MS-70 on my board. What's a good and affordable delay or reverb to replace the DiG and WET? Cheers!

    Query: Adjusting the screws from a 2-point trem system

    I had to loosen the screws of me Elite Stratocaster to rectify the stiffness of my tremolo arm. It also caused the bridge to life a few millimeters from the body but I liked that my trem arm is now very smooth to press. Any harm in loosening the screws ? Why did Fender had to really tighten...

    Why do people remove the bottom BOSS sticker?!?!

    ... and they still have the nerve to post it as 'good condition'! and even sell it at a high price :mad::mad::bkw I know some people will say that you will put it anyways on your pedalboard so you will not see it BUT still... for me it really loses its value and aesthetics. OK RANT OFF...

    Zero Neck Relief ? Am I the only one?

    I always prefer all my guitars to always have ZERO relief and set the neck as straight as possible. This means that I sometimes max out the truss rod (super tight!) Main advantage for me is that it makes the action really low in the lower frets! Will this cause an issue with the neck in the...

    Setting up a low action on a compound radius Strat

    Folks, first time to acquire a compound radius strat (9.5 - 14) on an American Elite. Question is, which curvature of the saddles am I going to follow? I'm trying to lower it down to around 1.25mm thinking that I can go lower as it has flat board on upper frets above but it still chocked...

    Upper fret access on a Les Paul style guitar

    I love everything about this guitar but I'm beginning to dislike the inability to easily access the upper frets when soloing. I was just jamming with my bandmates last Sunday and no matter how high my Strap is, it is just very difficult to easily play up from 15th fret standing up. I never...
