    K&K over Fishman installs

    Anyone ever install a K&K pure pickup in a guitar that came with a fishman preamp mounted in the top of the guitar? I like the way the K&K stuff sounds, but what are the options here? Leave a big hole in the top of the guitar? Is there any way to use the preamp WITH the K&K pickup? Anybody have...

    OK, maybe I'm not a huge Miley Cyrus fan, but

    My girl just called me into the other room to see the genious move she pulled. Ice cream cart w/ stripper pole. It's like Christmas, I tell ya. Ice cream and strippers for everyone!

    So why no left-handed pianos?

    Or if they're actually all left-handed, why no right-handed ones? Well?:confused:

    Do you tip the bar/wait staff at your gigs?

    I'm expecting a lot of yes, but feel free to say how much. I may not remind the patrons to tip them, but I tip at least $10. $20 if they don't suck. And I don't generally require much service (solo act, drink soda all night).

    It's kind of unfair to compare, but Michael Jackson...

    is an extremely talented mofo. Next to Britney, it's pretty ridiculous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsJQomr6Er0

    Another Bottle Battle

    6L6s vs. EL34s All 4 channels of the Road King combo with different guitars paying a track with the amp played live and keeping a direct track, I reamped (Radial X amp) the track through each channel each time with one set of tubes, changed tubes, and recorded again. This time around, I do...

    6l6s or EL84s

    The question keeps popping up. What's the difference? Can you tell? I have a couple clips here, each with the amp set the same. I would have set up the same clip and reamped it for the clips, but I didn't have much time yesterday. Basically, I play a little, you har a little pause, and I switch...

    Why do gigging players use such lousy amps?

    :rolleyes: You know what it's about, but I really don't care what amp anyone plays at home. What I care about is being assaulted by Fender solid states, 100 watt peaveys on 1, master volume amps with the pre-gain dimed, and guys playing top 40 with a tele (neck pu all night) through acoustic...

    Coil tap vs Coil split

    I played a friend's McNaught last night. Stellar guitar. I typically play a McCarty. I've never been happy with the McCarty "single coil" sound. Fix me if I'm wrong here, but McCarty's have a coil TAP thing going on, right? Tom's McNaught's single coil sound was very much more in line with what...

    Pronouncing Names

    There are some names out there that are confusing if you don't deal with dudes who use the equipment in a live setting. Like Neumannn... Norman Harrell was the one who taught me "Noyman" crazy ain't it? My mom knew it already, too. But there are others like Skrydstrup, they say it's...

    P90's for a Tele Deluxe

    I want the "other" flavor of pickup, and was thinking I'd like to try them in my Tele Deluxe. Does anyone make P90's that fit in that oddly large sized humbucker hole in the pickguard, or would I just have to suck it up and rout, or get a new guard made for standard P90's? Anyone?

    GCX wasted connectors

    Any of you guys just using yours to switch pedals in and out of the loops? I do, and it kinda drives me nuts knowing I have like 12 extra connectors taking say loop 1 out to loop 2 in and so on. Is there a way to get those connected internally? Is there a unit that does this rather than making a...

    Speakers, All things equal - impedance sensitivity and loudness

    How does it work together? Is there anything I can read, or can anyone help me put this together? They say (or rather, it is true that) 10 db is twice as loud, right? As far as sensitivity goes, 3 dB is twice as loud? How did wattage relate again? As far as impedance goes, provided the...

    Fulltone kicks Ass

    I have an OCD, and I played with a Full Drive which was nice, but not for me, but I got to spend a little time with a Distortion Pro and fat boost today, and I gotta say, why didn't I try these earlier? They were awesome! The distortion pro was amazing> If I didn't have a few really good ones...

    Budda Dual Stage 30

    Everybody is building amps based on "Classic" circuits. Somebody comes along and builds something great, and somebody else says "Hey, we do that!! You can't!!!" Well, there are schematics for all the other amps online... can anyone point me to a schematic for the Budda Dual stage 30? No one who...
