    So I'm looking to possibly pick up a cheap ($300 or less) practice amp strictly for my metal needs. I've been leaning towards a Line 6 Spider III because I always use them to demo guitars in stores when I'm looking to metal it up. I know there are a lot of Line 6 haters out there, though...

    I went to my local store and tried the little 15 watt Vypyr. Wow!!! Best modelling amp I have heard. The Bass response comming from that little 8" speaker is amazing. It sounded so good, I did not even use any of the effects. The peavey models are superb. The JSX model is dead on....I used to...

    I am interested in getting a Marshall tube amp, and as where I live theres not much chance of testing all the Marshall models, so as usual I turn here for advise and input (no punn) I want a nice, mellow, warm clean sound which is why I'm thinking tube amps, and as far as I know Marshall is a...

    I finally got the chance to test all these lekker goodies. Was like an afternoon in amp heaven. Before i start to tell you about my experiences i want to point out that am not biased in any way, meaning affiliated to any guitar company etc. To start with the Marshall which was a DSL 401 Combo...

    I want some In-Ear headphones for my Ipod/PSP because mine just bit the dust. I hope to not spend too much money since money is a little tight, also I don't care if it is noise canceling or not but it would be an added bonus ;) I mainly care about sound quality and durability. Thanks

    Hi guys. Well I can not lower my bridge pickup anymore. The clearance is now 2mm for the bridge pickup when I depress the 24th fret. Is it too close to the strings or something? What's your pickup height?

    Hi, I thought it would be interesting to have a thread that's entirely dedicated to overdrive and distortion, in which you can share info about which pedals you prefer and why, how you've managed to get the sound you searched through the use of your pedals, etc. etc. It might be a cool thread...

    here it is. took them forever just to put in a volume pot and set up. then when i got there there was a dime sized ding in the back that they put there. I was very unhappy. they had it filled but it is still very visible on the back. i will never go there again.

    I've been recording using cubase se for around 1 1/2 years and am happy for the most part with the final product but would like to learn more regarding EQ, mixing and frequencies. I understand you should have certain frequencies for certain instruments and too much of a certain frequency between...

    well seeing as i think people are right about there being too many pickup threads lets just make one post with dimarzio pickup info and clips . Sound good ? cool . Breed Bridge DP 166 If you've seen Steve Vai play in the last few years, you may have seen him playing an Ibanez® Jem guitar...

    What i'm asking is if you can get a really f***in' HEAVY sounding Metal riffage sound from the Crunch or Ultra channels on the JSX,kinda' somewhere near to 5150/6505 territory ? I'm looking at buying a new head and i'm basically trying to decide between a Peavey 5150/6505,a Peavey JSX or an...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    So I'm still torn between these two pickups to go in a 550DX which is down-tuned to C. I'm assured that the bridge will be a D-Sonic [bar in bridge position] to play metal/shred + clean tones. To contrast that tone, I want a smooth yet harmonically rich lead tone with enough bite for the neck...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Howdy fellow jemsiters :) I'm after some advice... i've got a Ltd Mh-1000(mahogany body) with a Jb in the bridge, and i'm not overly impressed. I'm after a fuller tone as the Jb is a bit too thin for my tastes. I'm after something that likes distortion, but cleans up ok, and sounds good coil...
  14. Pickups & wiring
    I'm purchasing some tester pickups for my RG550 (Three, to save on shipping) to see what tones I like, kinda tired of the Super 3 in there. I like a bitey tone, with more treble than mid, and more mid than bass. So far I'm looking at... Super II D Activator Neck D Activator Bridge X2N Any...

    I'm considering getting a pair of active monitor speakers to use on my DAW desk. Which of the two above do you think is the better buy and why? I've read reviews on both and for the most part they are pretty good. I need monitors that are most suitable for mixing, but also built to last, sound...

    I tried posting a reply to the "Lado Earth" guy, Big Red, but the system didn't give me authorization (who knows?). In any case, the Lado Earth is a neckthru Curly Maple guitar with a fast neck and two humbucking pickups. I have two of them in my collection and yes, I can answer your question...

    So, as I told some of you earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the UPS man to deliver the last piece of gear to complete what I bought last week. Here's the story: About a month ago, while doing various types of searches on the bay, I found an ad for a Boss GT-8 that some guy was selling. I have...

    Just got a 1570 and have been a long time user of strats, Les Pauls, etc. I used to dismiss these guitars somewhat, but now I can see why Gilbert, Vai, and Satch make these their weapon of choice. I have read where people have had quality issues on the newer prestige RGs. Mine is an '07 and I...
  20. Pickups & wiring
    I have my Mexi strat here, and was thinking about swapping the body out and keeping the neck. I was thinking Evolution neck/Hot Noiseless middle/Evolution bridge. I am set on the neck and middle, but the bridge is my main area of question. I want a bridge pickup that does better rhythm work, as...
