    A few months ago Keri Kelli the lead guitarist for Alice Cooper, had a volume pedal set-up to go from clean to distorted on his amp....Where, it's clean when it's open and distorted when he punches it down. Does anyone have a clue how to do that??? P.S. He says he uses an ernie ball VP JR. if...

    Just wanting to know, my uncle's old Fender something-or-other's tubes are close to dieing, so i want to change them for him (and to play on it for hours on end, obviously :) ) next time i go off to iran to visit. He likes the harmonic overtones during wide vibrato's, bends on 15th fret B...

    I was reading some of the "What Amp should I buy" or "What distortion pedal" topics and had a thought. How important is tone to some people and will you pay extra to get it? What I have seen is people will spend a lot on a guitar then run it through a crappy amp THEN buy another expensive...

    So I'm looking to get a small (small like...10 watts) solid state (or tube but I know that can get pricey) amp to use with my POD. At home I have it set up with my favorite amp of all time for use with the pod, the Atomic Reactor, but for being up at school I just want something compact with a...

    Anybody seen this yet? I got it in the post recently (very fast service through the AT website!)- its a DVD recording of a live show in Texas. Picture quality isn't great (pixellated at times) and its a pretty badly encoded DVD (the widescreen borders are encoded as part of the image, its...

    First I want to say Hi to Glen, Rich and many old jemsiters. I have not posted for quite some time. Today is really special indeed. I am not talking about mother's day. Today I became the proud owner of a new RG8470FPR. Here goes the story: I'm in Japan on a business trip and this is my...

    Well, after much convincing of the wife to let me order a Tourmaster, I come to find out that MF (Mother F*ckers?) wont ship amps to my neck of the woods. So we went to the music store today and I came away with an Express 5:50. I know some people say they aren’t as good as the F-50, but having...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I'm considering ordering me some bareknuckles for my RG321, now I know to choose F-spacing and 4 conductor wiring, but what leg length do I want, 1/2" or 1/4"? Intuitively I'm thinking 1/4", right? Also whilst I'm here, what do you reckon I should go for, Bare Knuckle Nailbombs, Warpigs or...

    Anyone with info on this pedal? I'm wanting to build a small pedal set up, mainly for clean sounding chilled out mellow music. Currently I use an FX board and I like the chorus sound it gives, but I want to make a seperate stomp box option too. I'm thinking of getting a delay pedal to the...

    Don't know if this is old news or not, but I've only just heard that the RG770DX is going to be reissued. Advert here: http://www.andertons.co.uk/acatalog/info_RG770DXRR.html I'm sure they'll be popular, but look how much they are charging!

    Hello. I've tried googling for this, and checking the posts. It seems it would be simple to build a killswitch pedal (I don't want to drill in my 77brmr), but I've heard they make your rig noisier. I wonder if anyone has done this, or would know if it could work, and not buzz, or pop? I've...

    Has anyone tried one of these? I like the idea and have heard some pretty sweet clips but haven't been able to find one to try out. If someone could drop a quick review that would be great. Thanks.

    I am looking at all three of these pickups for the bridge position of my SZ720. I am kinda interested in the new P.A.F. Bridge but am unsure. Can anyone tell me the differences between these pickups? I play in a pop rock band doing stuff from softer rock to kinda heavier. I use the bridge...

    I bought a guitar processor a while ago (a Zoom G9.2tt to be exact), which has a USB connection with ASIO support. Very convenient for recording. However, it only supports 16-bit 48 KHz. My own soundcard does 24-bit 96 KHz, and therefore whenever I wanted to add a guitar track, I either had to...

    So they got one of these in at the fulcrum of musical evil, merry olde guitar center. It's $400, and I almost bought one tonight. Before I shelled out the cash, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this particular guitar. Mahogany body, set neck. The one I played seemed to have great...
