Can anyone speak to this. I've had steel on mine for a very long time and love it but have had a set of brass ones here that I've been curious to try too.
What kind of difference could I expect by changing them if any?
I have a '84 Strat that I've owned since new, it's a bit buzzy, the action goes up towards the bridge and the neck is straight. Someone told me to shim the neck so I have a couple questions about doing that.
1. Will it affect the tone or sustain of the guitar
2. Is it difficult to do
My guitar needs love. Might get lucky and only need a fret level but feeling it's time for a re-fret. Would love stainless but I know that is typically a lot more. Just looking for an idea of how much to expect it to cost. Locally it's around $700
I've had one on order with Prymax since September. I've never waited so long for a pedal. I know Paul is a one man shop but dang that's a long time.
Anybody get theirs faster? Did I just order from the wrong place or is Paul just bogged down?
I have a Friedman JJ JR and it sounds great but any kind of boost pedal in front does nothing for volume increase on leads. Should I run the boost through the effects loop along with my delay and reverb?
The Boss DM-2W Waza looks pretty interesting to me for a warm sounding simple pedal.
Look forward to what you guys have to say and what you use.
I usually use two settings, one is slapjack for a country style and the other is longer delay for solos and ambient stuff. Would love to be able to...
And I don't mind it. Found myself in the last few years being more of a side man doing guitar for several talented singer songwriter people and bands. It requires me to learn material very quickly and adapt to different styles of music. It's challenging for sure which is always good for a...
20190624_154516 by Glowing Tubes posted Jun 24, 2019 at 7:53 PMI bought this guitar new in 1983, it's been through some things. Unfortunately I routed it for a hum bucker at one time, wish I hadn't but hindsight. So all the parts under the pickguard are still set up for a humbucker. I...
I find myself attached to little nuggets of guitar in songs I wouldn't otherwise care about. A tasty little guitar riff or cool tone/sounds grab me. I've used this for motivation many times when learning music I didn't care for. A few eons back I had to learn some Lucinda Williams tunes and...
So I'm getting a specific ringing sound from my g string behind the nut when I'm playing. The note rings out even if I mute the string from either side (on the fret side or behind the nut) and does not matter where on the neck I'm playing or chording, that damn high note is ringing through the...
I find myself knob tweaking during shows too much these days. I have a BJF red rooster boost and it's great but it reacts to pedals in front of it differently including how much boost I get. So I find myself tweaking with it at shows, one time it's too low, another it's blasting. (very...
The singer in my band plays a Taylor. Taylors to my ear have always had a certain sound, very chimey and bright. I want to restring the guitar for him and dont want something bright on top of an already bright sounding guitar. Im thinking coated would be good to for extended time between...
Selling my house soon and will have enough money to buy a Mac.
I prefer Mac because I'm used to it and run Logic ProX but my system is so
old it can no longer record. I need suggestions as to a good solid Apple as
my base and go from there. I have a DAW and may add some studio...
I'm headed to Thailand in November for five weeks and it would be a blast to be able to sit in with somebody's band or just play some music. Any people are in bands in Thailand that are on here?
I'm also open to suggestions as to things to see and do.
I had my full rig with Lava Cables, two of my guitar cables have since pretty much failed and I was sad to find Mark unresponsive to warranty. (Lifetime guarantee?) Was a dedicated customer until then. I liked the company and product. I know he went through some difficult times and I hope he...
Ok, I'm old(ish). I've worked hard on my feel and style and am pretty happy with it but I feel it's dated (like me).
I've played with some younger players and there is a cool simplicity to their style that I admire. I feel that my style of playing, after years of evolving is too specific if...
I find this to be difficult. It's not easy for me to keep it interesting. We have a song that just sits on the A, it's bluesy in feel. I can do ok with it but feel redundant and lost before very long.
Any suggestions on how to approach this to make it more interesting.
