    Broken backplate screws

    I need to remove one on a bad monkey. So.... how do you stick brass tubing in a hole that's blocked by a broken screw?

    D Addario - NYXL vs Elixir Optiweb

    Sorry, but the NYXL's are a bit stiffer [harder to bend] than the regular XL's. And ALOT stiffer than Super Slinky's of the same gauge. Not sure how you can have a polar opposite opinion of something that is a fact? I love the the NYXL's in 9-42, they feel like a 10 set.

    Who uses NUX mini pedals?

    ^ Cool! I just ordered a sculpture compressor. How's the noise floor on that one?

    You get only one dirt box what do you choose?

    I guess my sig would be my answer! ;)

    What are some good Digital Chorus pedals?

    Same for the Mooer Pitch Box, really digging the detune chorus on this little box!

    EMG Retro-Active Strat pickups

    Am I still digging the Maverick N/M? Well, I like them ALOT, but If I had to choose one pickup it would be the S or SA pickups. However, those have become 'my sound'.I love the maverick's because they really provide a totally different tone option in my guitar, making it a very flexible axe! I...

    Boss DD-500 vs Korg SDD-3000?

    Same thing with the Korg Delay Lab, great reverb that when dialed in I prefer to the mono WET or RV-6 that I own. Finally just gave in to the fact that I need to make room for this rather large box, it's not going anywhere!

    Difference between Dumble and Klon style pedals?

    ^ I agree with that. But I was referring to the klon vs klon demo. They are all very close really. And I should have specified for 'live' use as far as medium gain overdrives being interchangeable. I just happened to find one that works particularly well with MY amp, and covers all of that...

    Difference between Dumble and Klon style pedals?

    ^ Nice 'MURPHY' avatar! The video posted with the klon shoot-out confirms that they are all interchangeable. Nobody would notice you switched your archer for a Joyo. I'm sticking with my Reverend Drivetrain. It seems to fall somewhere in the middle of the whole Klon vs Dumble vs Tubescreamer...

    What is your experience with Russian-made effects?

    There's a company called D-Sound that makes some killer Muffs with mids and a Rams Head mini muff that is outstanding!

    Having a hard time choosing a compressor

    My Mini Ego was pretty noisy. Tried several others with clean blends. Dyna Comp Deluxe, SP,Keeley. For subtle and transparent my Boss LM-2 trumped them all.

    Any rock biography recommendations?

    I've read quite a few lately, but BB King's kinda makes all the rest sound like a bunch of whinners.I mean, born on a plantation, parent-less at age 12, on and on. Yet he came out of it all with dignity, class and better than most. Anthony Kiedis' was a good read, just reminded me of my youth...

    How does the Musicman RD50 re-issue compare to the original?

    btw, my Favorite amp is an RD-50 1X10 combo with an EV Force 10. It's a loud, clean and POWERFUL little 1x10 amp! Perfect club amp and plenty of volume and headroom for outdoor shows. I went through mine and recapped all the electrolytics and updated the power transistors. Its still got the...

    If you could only have up to 5 pedals for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

    Well, I'd take 5 original gold KLON's to help my retirement. But if we are not going fantasy island here, I'd go with what's on my board.... but I can only go down to 6. Boss LM-2 Crybaby 95Q Xotic AC+ Rams Head muff with mids Orange V1 Ross phaser Vox Delaylab [ or Korg SDD3000 if back on...

    Help with EMG 89 SA SA Pickup Set Install

    Lots of folks talk pickups here I think. EMG has the BEST wiring diagrams out there, so like stratmania said its probably hooked up wrong. Trace every wire according to the diagram.

    BOSS teases new Waza Craft pedal

    Yeah, an MZ-2 with a remote jack that cycles between chorus only / distortion + chorus / and distortion only! Maybe they could even remove the can of bees from the distortion!

    Gretsch Streamliner Jet JR. Bigsby or......?

    I'm thinking of picking up a Gretsch Streamliner JR, as my favorite humbucker size single coils are just sitting in a box. [EMG 'H' actives, which are 'S' single coils in humbucker housings] However, I would really like a vibrato instead of a wrap-around bridge. Schaller makes the 4201 which is...

    I'm over tuners taking up space on my board

    I tune up my strat once before a show [pre-covid] with a headstock tuner. End of show, still in tune. Maybe you guys need to learn how to set up a guitar? :hide2

    Amazing, I just got to post # 2 and was thinking, 'that sounds exactly like my brute drive'. That's never happened before!
