  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    I have two stock Ibanez Jem's (7VWH and a DBK) and its really difficult to get either to feed back though various amps. The amps are always cranked to stage volume with lots of gain and I make sure my noisegate is off. Its not impossible to induce feedback with them, but its very sensitive to...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    I finally got installed the paf joe pickup in the neck in my Js1000! and wow!! it sounds in the same family of paf pro but with warmer and buttery sound but its a matter of taste because Paf pro sounds awesome too but life is about experience and that's what I did! so right I basically have a...
  3. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    So I got my new Schecter 007 Blackjack a few days ago and last night I did some A/Bing between it and my old main guitar, an Ibanez RG7421 seven string with Dimarzios. I thought I'd offer some comparison for anyone who's interested. Woods: The Ibanez has an American basswood body, maple neck...

    Hey All- It's been a while since I posted on here. Been spending lots of time practicing and experiencing music in it's various forms, headed to Berklee in January too. Looking at jemsite again, it's good to see that nothing has really changed...this is still by far my favorite internet forum...
  5. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    right now I got a blaze bridge (dp702) in my rg7421xl, and it's nice but i'm thinking I might be able to do better. I play mainly hard rock and metal (more like the "new wave" of american metal or whatever they call it than nu-metal, but I still play the latter occassionally) but i still play a...

  7. Pickups & wiring
    Here's the deal: Ibanez RG2020 with DiMarzio Steve's Special in bridge position, Laney VH100R head + Marshall 1960BV 4x12 cab (V30s). At band rehearsals, I was experiencing uncontrollable feedback. My local shop guitar tech inspected the guitar and did a wax (paraffin) bath to the coils of my SS...

    Guys, I have a clip mp3 that I threw together on Sat and uploaded.. it's a direct comparison b/w the two units.. and I compared both using the same amp models, cabs, and amp settings. I used NO STOMP or MOD pedals... just straight up amp models.. with the knobs all cranked (i.e. on 10).. except...

  10. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    When I play a chord such as an open D then pick 8th notes on the open D or the C on the 5th string, those 8th notes are very quiet....when I deaded the chord then the notes are loud when played as 8th notes. This make sense? When other strings are ringing these have no punch. Is it my guitar...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    regarding pickups and such (since I wasn't sure where to put this), I'm on this neverending search for a sound I can call "mine". I've been playing for two and a half years and while I'm probably one of the pickiest, most discerning guys you'll meet when it comes to my sound, I still have a lot...
  12. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    i know there are a few people on here who use the mark iv, i'm gassing pretty hard for one, and am basically looking for some clips to flesh out my ideas as to what this amp is capable of. i play a pretty eclectic mix of things, experimental/noise/ambient and technical death/grind (along the...

    I got some good comments from people on the original versions of these, so I thought I'd post a message to say I've updated them. Demo 3 This one started out as just the intro, and stayed that way for a long time, but I finally have a full song to it. I'm not adding bass, etc. yet as I'm...
  14. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    I'm considering getting one of these for recording at home: http://www.axetrak.com/ It's an isolation cabinet for recording cranked amps without disturbing the peace. My question is how well do these isolation cabinets (and others like Randall and Demeter) work in reducing the overall volume...
  15. Pickups & wiring
    This is just a small review of my thoughts regarding these two pickups. I am playing them with an Ibanez RG2027XVV, a mahogany bodied 7-string. I have an Air Norton 7 in the neck. I have used the TZ7 for the last 2 years, and it's a great pickup. Fat, thick, nice bottom, and a LOT of mids. It...
  16. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    I've been playing for about 1.5 years now so I'm not excellent, but I've been looking for new gear lately. I did research and spent tons of time on the internet learning about the different setups that people liked. Well today I went down to my local dealer and got to try some stuff out. I...

    I have just gotten my recording set up going, and need some tips on mixing and mastering. This should be general advice on each instrument as I have just about all the means to do it (logic pro = all you could need). We're talking EQing, compression, reverbs, etc for the following : Guitar...

    So, I've got a long day of nothing ahead of me here... I'm about to step out for lunch, but thought I'd post this now, to see if anyone else had any thoughts, before i add some stuff on my own... Due to its extended register, the 7-string is a bit trickier to record than your typical 6...
