This got such a problem in the past that to get some extended play time out of them I built an alcohol soaking tube and rotated two sets, I could get about 10 or 15 gigs out of two sets that way.
I'm really liking the rotobass strings at the moment as they seem to hold their tuning well and the tone just keeps on going.
Elixir strings just take that one step further, getting like 6-8 months of constant gigs out of them.
Welp, it's here. This thing is a dream. Looking at it and thinking about what it will feel like and holding it are two totally different things. A lot of people said that there would be balance problems but I have no issues with how it sits. It's not quite as warm as the Thunderbird I had just a few weeks prior but it still sounds right to me. I took it down to a guitar shop and got a lot of "I haven't seen one of these in years." Kinda fun. :)
so how does stringing one of those even work I've always wondered about that
Oh. I'd never use a tremolo.
E: I've never wanted to give a title to a person more than you. "Would suck dick for tremolo."
my old steinberger had a locking nut so you could just use single ball-end strings instead of the stupid double ended ones they sell
so i finally replaced my strings same ones since 2008 Feels like new now
Whew, covered Lamb of God's "Laid to Rest" today. I must say, Mark Morton writes some cool stuff.
here it is, I'm always looking for some feedback on my playing
Damn, I need a new guitar fast, the action on this is ridiculously high. The neck is deformed and only way to avoid horrid fret buzz is to set the the strings that way.
what would be the best active full range speaker to go with a hd 500 for like 250 euro max?
i can't decide if i'm going with a harley benton g212 + blackstar ht 20 or hd500 + speaker
You seem pretty good when you're into a passage of notes, but the disconnected chugging and such is getting out of time. Are you nodding your head or tapping your foot? As silly as it sounds, it really helps one get into the groove.
As for your guitar, sure you don't just need to adjust your truss rod? Even so, you can get away with a fair bit of fret buzz if you're playing distorted stuff, so if the action is that bad you can probably still lower it a bit.
Aside from that, this is fairly solid, but your tone needs work. I know Lamb of God specifically uses the Mesa Triple Rectifier, which I'm sure there's a Rectifier sample in like every modeling program ever, plus less midrange and a little more treble.
As for string action and wanting a new guitar, I can say that I'm absolutely in love with my Paul Allender PRS, and PRS in general. Just...stick to the Student Edition models, they're so much more affordable (and still play amazingly well).
Yeah, the main riff kind of put me off a bit, because I couldn't eventually even understand if I was playing in time. Turns out I wasn't. Thanks, I really do know I have to improve my timing. Got to get out that old tiny metronome. And I think I was kind of tapping my foot, but I'm not entirely sure.
About the truss rod - it's fucked beyond fixing. I took it to a workshop and they told me all I could do was just increase the string action. :(
Also what country do you live in? If you're in America a PRS SE can be had for a pretty reasonable price, but overseas the price on everything PRS is astronomical.
I really need to get a new amp. I'm really leaning towards a big power Harley Benton head and their own brand of cab. They're cheap, high power, and sound alright.
Unless anyone can recommend me any kind of bass amp (combo or head + cab) with at least 250W of power and is roughly £300, £400 max, that's what I'm gonna go for.
My strings stay sounding good for a good while - then again I don't play live at all at the moment so they don't get very heavy use. I bought the Rotosound Steve Harris strings and I really like them, they're quite expensive tho.
Tried some MesChugChughugga. Was a pain in the ass to play, because I hadn't played any polyrhythmic music before. Thus making mistakes.
