    Ha ha ha...I just realized, the 80's aren't old school to some people in here. Well, I'm 17 so to me the 80's is as old school as it gets. Still, I believe more than anything that the 80's had the best shred guitar players there ever were, I mean, the best now came from then. So the point of...

    I work at a local music store and we are planning on getting a line of Boss products. The owner is depending on my advice for what we should carry and what will sell the best for the $. We used to carry MXR stuff and it just collected dust and was sold (mostly to yours truly!), below cost. They...

    I guess most of people here stick with a Legacy/Marshall/Mesa/__________(fill in the blanks) with a random DS-1 for solo boost. Anyhow, I've become interested in experimenting with more "vintage" gear, like fuzzes and 808-modded Tube Screamers etc, since the overly saturated & compressed "shred"...

    Well, I'm far from a gear genius so I need some serious advice.   Since I've got a Gibson now, everyone is advising me to check out a tube amp.  My biggest problem is I had a Marshall 9100 50/50 tube amp and 4 x 12 with Vintage 30's that I traded because I hated it. Now that I continue to...

    I'm at the point where I really need to find my definate sound. I've always been pretty happy with my current amp/effect rig, but I've always felt I could do better. So I headed up to GC to play all the amps in there. I played the Nomad (100 and 55), the Dual and Triple Rectifier, the Triaxis...

    I have a hard question. Why are pros (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Randy Rhoads) never using their amps with gain on them? They always use distortion/overdrive pedals and such. Why are they doing that? There are other great guitarists (Eddie Van Halen, SRV, Jake E Lee, Zakk Wylde) that just use the...
