    hey guys! i don't really know much about amps, so i guess i'd like to ask some questions. how does different speakers differ in sounds? do they deliver different types of tones? if so, what kind of speakers are best for high-gain sounds, and which ones are best for clean tones? i have a carvin...

    I read this on his forum, www.hevydevyforums.com: I use LTD 7 string Baritones for the new SYL with 81's and a fixed bridge. I ust the strat and a Gibson sg with an 81 for DT. The strat has pearly gates and hot rails and a wango bar. I use 5150's, but am starting to get a much better tone...

    On an interesting note, the band Creed has decided to part ways. Some of their stuff was cool. :) http://www.cnn.com/2004/SHOWBIZ/Music/06/04/music.creedbreakup.ap/index.html

    I used my JEM7VSBL last night at an open jam and for practicing yesterday. JEM's RULE! Right now my JEM and my RG3120DR are like my favorite guitars--and this is after swearing off Ibanez models for 7 years because I felt they were soul-less and had no tone (except JEM's, PGM's and JS1000's)...

    Hi, I am interested in getting an Ibanez Universe, preferably not the weird swirl-paint ones. I have to offer a VERY rare Fender Performer. This guitar was only made for 2 years in the mid-1980s and were fender's first foray into building Jackson-style heavy metal guitars. They were made in...

    This is from foxnews.com: Gibson Launching Digital Guitar Model The digital guitar uses computer chips to clean up the signal - Juszkiewicz describes the new sound as traditional but "on steroids." It also allows the player to control the sound of each string. For example, the guitarist can...

    Hi all, I'm afraid I must once again delve into the fountain of knowledge that is your collective mindset. The time for buying my pick ups to replace the disastrously crappy stock efforts on my RG2550EX has finally come, I bought it for the body, 24 frets, tremolo, neck, etc..everything's good...

    Since I can't find a store that sells them new, I can't get a good impression of their pricing. What makes it even harder is that I don't know if this is the amp for me or not. I've recently seen it advertised for $800 used and that seems a little steep, but I may be mistaken. Assuming it's in...

    What kind of music did you listen to when you were 16? My friends think I'm weird because I like listening to jazz, new age, and lighter forms of rock (Porcupine Tree, Platypus, etc.) Hard rock and metal just seemed to get boring for me all of a sudden. :?

    Hey guys! In my seemingly neverending quest for a good amp, i've read a lot of good about the Carvin Legacy. I'm absolutely in love with Steve Vai's lead tone, which i've heard the Legacy can deliver with a DS-1. But i've heard very many contrasting opinions on whether the rhythm tone...

    Pre-amp valve selection! The valves/tubes you choose to use effects your tone in a big way (almost as much as a new pickup!) luckily it doesn't cost as much (unless you have more than 4 preamp valves). It is also 'lucky' that you HAVE to change them. Otherwise you could end up with a tone you...

    Please, go to www.mikseri.net/enforce and choosen the first song to be downloaded (The Last Ray Of Light). It's the first instrumental song I've ever made. It's got a lot of heavy metal influences in it, but some progressive stuff, as well. I guess this ain't the final version, as far as the...

    I'm basically torn here... I was all set to pick up a Prestige model, prolly a 2550 till this weekend when I went into GC (I hate Guitar Center!) in my home town which happens to be the original location of Musicians Friend before GC bought them out. Anywho... I saw one of the Japanese...

    I was in Santa Monica on business yesterday and stopped by TruTone Music. TONS of great boutique amps in there and LOTS of guitars. If I had more change in the parking meter, I would've stayed longer :) . Anyway, I picked up and played a couple of Tele's while there (A Highway 1 and a MIM)...

    Well guys after problems with my mesa head I have decided to sell it and take the plunge into the world of racks... I want to make a small, resonably low power versitile system that wont take up my whole room but will still be ok with small gigs (pubs). I think I have basically decided on a mesa...

    I love this album ever since it was released, but I have played this album countless times in many various types of sound systems and I just cannot pick out and hear separately the bass guitar track in any part of this album. I've heard about the band along with the producer wanting to go after...
