I have a Clyde Deluxe I bought used about a year ago. It worked great, but recently the volume drops right down after I've been using it a little while (example: works fine for first 1/2 hour or so of playing, then volume will start dropping when it's engaged). When the wah is not engaged the...
I currently use a DAM Drag'n'Fly (germ/si hybrid) with my Two-Rock Studio Pro 22. It works quite well for me but am looking for some other Classic Rock fuzz flavors. Not really into spitty, velcro or 'wall of fuzz' sounds though. Must work well with both humbuckers and single coils, not lose...
Does anyone know anything about this 'tube measuring plug'?
I came across it on a french site, so this is my best attempt at translation: "Suitable for EL34 , 6F6 , 6K6 , 6L6 , 6V6 , KT66 , KT88 , KT99 , KT100 , 5881 , 6550 , etc. Plug the measuring plug into a tube socket, plug your tube into...
I wanted to order a set of saddles from Raw Vintage, but they don't make them to fit a 2 1/16" MIM Strat bridge. I know Callaham does, but his trem block sounded too bright in my Strat, so I'm a little worried about the saddles being bright also. Any opinions on this subject? Does anyone else...
1. What are the advantages/disadvantages of one over the other as it relates to bridges, pickup covers and other hardware?
2. Do you ever mix the two on the same guitar, or go all nickel or all chrome?
I bought a second hand (i.e. no warranty) AD999 a few months ago. Love how it sounded at first but while it boosted volume ever so slightly, lately there's been a slight drop in volume when engaged and there's noise in the repeats now. Sort of a 'white noise' sound that is most noticeable when...
I just got my first Bigsby equipped guitar, a used Hamer Newport, and it simply won't stay in tune, especially the G, B and E strings. Even without touching the arm it seems to go out of tune. I do a lot of blues bends, but never had problems like this with the trem in my Strat.
Do you have any...
I've been looking at semi-hollow guitars with a P90 vibe and tremolo. Am trying to narrow things down... which of these two would you go for and why?
Hamer Newport (with Phat Cats)
Duesenberg Staplayer TV (P90 neck / HB bridge)
I've been using a Fulltone Clyde Standard on my board for a while and although I like the feel, sweep and tone when playing clean, it's very unpredictable with overdriven tones. It can get bass-heavy or too loud, and often doesn't have the vocal musicality I'm looking for, with the result being...
I've played guitar on and off for 47 years, but have never tried slide. What would be a good first slide and in what material? Are there different sizes? I play blues and rock both with single coils and humbucker equipped guitars, and prefer a warm tone.
Could someone please explain the advantage of having matching power tubes in your amp?
Ideally how close should they match?
When one power tube goes bad, should you put in a whole new set and, if so, why?
I'm thinking of rewiring my George L pedalboard with EA Monorail, so I could reuse my GL plugs.
1) Does Monorail, being solid core, offer any noticeable improvement over GL cable?
2) Has anyone used this method of fitting Monorail to a solderless plug? What are your thoughts?
There have been snippets of this 2007 film available here and there, but here's a chance to watch it in its entirety (91 mins) if you haven't seen it yet. Lots of interestiing history and interviews with Billy Gibbons and many boutique pedal builders. Recommended viewing :)
I've checked out some YouTube vids of the Drag'n'Fly, but unfortunately they're quality-wise all over the place so it's difficult to tell what the pedal is really capable of.
Can you please tell me what you know? How does it clean up and can it do a great fuzzy overdrive (as opposed to balls...
Wanting to dip my toes in the fuzz pool for the first time, what would be a versatile fuzz for playing at home that straddles the fence between fuzz and OD?
I'm not crazy about the 'wall of doomy fuzz' that I hear on many YouTube vids (bad recording quality could have something to do with...
What power does the current batch of DAM Drag'N'Fly need? 9V positive ground or a standard 9V?
If it's 9V positive, can you daisychain it with other positive ground pedals (like the DAM Red Rooster for example) or does it need its own power supply?
