    Revv G3 users - what are your thoughts?

    G3 is just a riffing machine. I don't like it for leads at all, but it's fantastic for high-gain metal rhythm parts.

    Playability When Switching Scale Length

    I have guitars ranging from 24.5" to 28" scales, and have found pros and cons to both short scale and longer scale instruments. I really don't think about it much when I'm playing them, though - I just treat each guitar as its own thing, and adapt my playing to it. YMMV, that's just my...

    I’ll take troll posts for $300, please.

    Pedal naming/labeling/identifying: My criticism

    Sorry you feel so angry. Rather than trying to pick a fight, perhaps you can appreciate that there are other viewpoints that you might be able to learn from. Just a thought.

    Pedal naming/labeling/identifying: My criticism

    I like the concept, in that it forces me to experiment. This, I believe, helps to lead to cool new sounds and away from formulaic, predictable clichés. Too much of that in today's music as it is...

    Buying vintage rack gear from overseas

    Never had an issue with gear purchased from Japan. I have had a couple from China, though - I've had things delayed in shipping for up to 6 weeks, and a couple of them came packed in broken up styrofoam which is a huge P.I.T.A. to clean up. Regardless of where you buy from, power specs are...

    ID this rackmount unit

    Color me stumped. It sure is a massive piece of kit, though!

    Singing out loud as you solo...

    Phil Keaggy taught me to do that back in the 80's, I find it super helpful when I'm trying to play more musically. Here's an example of him doing it, he starts singing his solo at around 4 minutes in.

    Vintage Sleeper Rackmount Units?!!

    Wow, I'm saddened by the pettiness I'm seeing in this thread. I expected better. OP (aka "Original Poster") has a clearly defined meaning, it refers to the thread creator's initial post. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=OP So, to clarify this mess of misinterpretations -...

    Advice on new high gain head?

    There are a lot of great amps out now, but these get some absolutely simply monstrous modern metal sounds. Revv Generator 120 Driftwood Purple Nightmare Engl Powerball

    How many controls does an amp need?

    As many as it takes... ...to sound good to me. Some amps sound fantastic to my ears with little adjustment, others require significant tweaking.

    Synergy modular thread

    The trick, I think, is to play each of these modules to their particular strengths. Can I get Marshall-y sounds from a Deliverance? Sure, but why? That makes no sense to me. That’s like asking Billie Eilish to sing Katy Perry.

    Is there another female rock vocalist even close to Ann Wilson?

    So true! Here are a few more fantastic european singers... Sharon den Adel (Within Temptation, Ayreon) Anya Stefanowicz of UnSun Emmanuelle Zoldan (Sirenia, Trail of Tears, Penumbra) Justine Daaé of Elyose I'd post videos of Mizuho Lin from the Brazilian death-metal band Semblant, but...

    Is there another female rock vocalist even close to Ann Wilson?

    There have been a TON of powerful singers that have come into the music scene in the past 40+ years since Ann Wilson recorded her most famous songs. Floor Jansen and Elise Ryd immediately come to mind (and have been mentioned already), but here are many others: Anneke Van Giersbergen (with...

    I’m just going to say it. I thought the cure were supposed to be some sort of badass band...

    When this Cure song came out 40 years ago, it was pretty badass. However, if you're trying to compare it by today's standards you're doing the band and their music a real disservice IMHO.

    Leslie emulations in rack multi effects, Alesis vs Lexicon anyone?

    I remember Rocktron's Replifex having a great Leslie sim, they go pretty inexpensively if you can find them.

    How do you evaluate a guitar?

    My only absolute these days is tuning stability. I really can't live with a guitar that keeps going out of tune while I'm playing it.

    Mesa Rectifier Badlander?

    Ola's demo just crushed it, IMHO. Nice amp, glad to see Mesa reinvigorating the line.

    when/why did rack mount die?

    Racks are the only way to work with studio gear IMHO. Sometimes you have to buy used pieces, but that doesn't bother me in the slightest. Here's my primary sound machine: Here are a few pieces of my DAW outboard gear:
