You disappoint me, kid.
I certainly hope that wasn't a Weezer diss
If somebody of you guys want real sounding drums, send me in your gp5 files (please save it as gp4.0 file) and I convert it to my drumkit that I always use on my songs, just to be nice because I know how pissy it is not to have drums but just midi shit. But you need to have written the drums in guitar pro. Somebody interested?
For now I can import midi files but best would be if they are written in guitar pro because it's actually in time and haves no mistakes.
I write the scores, export as .wav, then put in cubase.
What I meant was that if somebody wants some drums but haves no other options then give me your written midi drums and I transfer it to my good sounding drumkit and give it as .wav back.
RIP JIM MARSHALL
It's a great shame when the founder of a company dies, especially a massive one like Jim Marshall and Marshall Amps. But what he's done is gonna last forever, no one's gonna forget the name, and the amps are gonna keep coming for years to come. Besides, Marshall amps have stood the test of time, the Bluesbreaker, JCM800, JTMs, Plexis, everyone knows them and people are gonna want them.
dying is the best thing you can do for your brand
Ok so I have had my Epiphone for a day and I think it is time for a review. Honestly I can't say enough good things about it. For the money it is an amazing guitar, I am glad I chose it.
Out of the box the set up was perfect, the action measured .055" at the 12th fret and the neck relief was about .010" at the 6th fret. Only problem is it was strung with 9-42 so threw some d'addario 10-52s and adjusted the truss rod. I noticed it has a double action truss rod so that is a plus, if only my Ibanez had that...
The intonation was bang on out of the box even after putting the d'addario's on it, which brings me to the tuners which are Grover mini rotomatics. The bridge and tailpiece are decent I can't find any problem with them but if i do they will be replaced.
The pickups are pretty muddy, they aren't bad but I will be putting something else in it. As far as the electronics go they are decent, I can see myself changing it all out though. The finish is flawless as far as I know I haven't found any defects in it so.... HOORAY! The only this that sucks is the pickguard has a crack next to one of the screws where someone over tightened it but hey if that is the only thing wrong that I am happy, just put a little bit of super glue on it and you will never know.
So overall I am extremely happy with this guitar.
I found out mine has shit wiring, be careful when changing pickups.
Finally getting started on building my 7 string over the next 3 weeks . My top wood arrived last week . Beautiful slab of Tasmanian Blackwood.
Yeah the wires are kind of a mess but the solder joints are good and strong. The pots are Alpha pots, which I know are kind of shit but I put one in my Ibanez and it lasted about a year with heavy use.
Oh and for in the info the cavity is painted with that shielding paint. I checked it with a multi meter and it was holding a voltage.
Got my Aunt's 1960's era Gibson J45 today. Fixed the loose battery pack and loose cord. new strings put on it. For some reason, after I put in the low E string, the peg for it didn't want to stay completely down. So it's a bit higher up than the other ones.
Learning Tupelo. Badumm badumm badumdadum dummm.
I think it's time for me to change my guitar strings once again, as the 1st snapped and the other are rusty as fuck.
Though I'd like to know what would you guys suggest:
Last set was a .011 and I loved it, so I was thinking of buying a heavier gauge set, such as .012.
But I was disappointed at how short this last set's lifetime was, so I wanted something that lasted longer, such as an Elixir set I bought back in december, which lasted 3 months before the 1st string for some reason snapped and the others started sounding badly, I still have the remaining strings around home, they still haven't built up a considerable amount of rust.
But then, judging at how bad music and related things are in this city, I'm not sure I would find a .012 long-lasting Elixir set around here.
So what would you guys suggest I should buy, in case I don't find it?
Ernie ball coated Not-Even-Slinkys ?
I've not tried Ernie balls coated strings but I've always wanted to give them a shot. I tend to buy in large quantities and I'm currently stocked up on Rotosound which seem to work for me.
Starting a new build for myself and one "extra" for open sale. Gonna build myself a spanish cedar Telecaster/Gibson SG hybrid with the 1982 Khaler trem and two hot humbuckers. Gonna order some stainless steel fretwire because I'm tired of this cheap-ass nickel "vintage" shit that wears down after a couple months of hard playing.
If you want to pitch a body design for the "open" one feel free. Nothing really affectatious though. Its a aesthetic > novelty situation, IE: something that looks good because it'll be for sale. Will probably have tele hardware so something retro looking might be good for it.
It's hard to get a good mix of different shapes a lot of the time. I really like the look of the ProBass Vantage though. Ricky/Jazz mix.
the guy did do other stuff too but all of them have gone off of his site so I can't even see what they look like.
Made a little video tonight to convince my friend to set up a coil split for his pickups. Might as well post it here too.
It is my Ibanez RG120 with the seymour duncan '59 in the bridge and super 2 in the neck.
Couldn't play Foxy Lady tonight :(
Coil splitting is the best thing ever
Still can't believe how good coil split passive EMGs sound, I was really surprised.
I just recently got a 12 string Fender acoustic/electric. It's pretty dope in general, it's just harder to play because the strings are all so close together and there are so many of them, so it feels like I have to press down twice as hard to fret them, while also requiring more accuracy. I'm getting used to it, though.
But I've read up about 12 string guitars eventually bending in the neck if tuned to standard E because such high tension over time isn't good for them, so I was wondering if maybe I should try something lower? I'm a fan of C#. I think the slack tuning may also make it easier to play.
i think that was only a huge issue till the truss rod was invented.
still 12 strings sound pretty cool with down-tunings.
i also know that Rickenbacker 12 strings have 2 truss rods so they never warp even if you tune them up like Johnny Marr
