    I am changing my old Johnson Millenium with a Engl Powerball head (almost 100% sure about this) and need to get the effects in place. What I really like with both the G-system and the GSP1101 is that they let you put compression, wah etc.. in front of the Powerballs preamp - and then the...

    First off, I'd like to get another 1x12" combo amp to use with my Peavey XXX in stereo for stereo effects and such. Now, I like the sound of the XXX but its not exactly the tone i had in my head before i got it. Would it be stupid to use a different brand amp (marshall, fender, etc.) with the...

    Hi there, I decided to tap into the abundant knowledge on this board.. Here's my "problem" : I have a carvin legacy amplifier ( the 100w head and cab ) and I really love the preamp in it. It's really cool. But.. Sometimes having only one distortion channel doesn't cut it, and even when I use a...
  5. Pickups & wiring
    Hi! Recently i found the tiny little manual that came with JEM10th. At the back of manual, it describes the split switching systems of the pickups on 2 different setups (although there´s just i minor difference). JEM & Co: On the neck pickup (at switch position 2, counted from the neck side of...

    I didnt really know what section to put this in so if i have it wrong can the MODS please move it. Anyway....At the moment i am really searching for that Hendrix sound and i am sure you all know what i mean as most of you have probably searched for this sound yourself. I have an array of Multi...

    I'm trying to figure out which rackmount compressors have the ability to be bypassed remotely via a footswitch (proprietary or MIDI) instead of pushing a button on the faceplate of the unit. I'm fully aware that any unit could be placed in a loop switcher (like Midi Matrix, 2290, Bradshaw...

    Hi! I am going to design a pedal board for my DT project. Do you lot think it would be worth it (Could I make it original?). Any ideas would help me (Note-I am not planning to sell it so your ideas are safe-lol). I would appriciate if you could my survey to produce a pedal board that would be...

    After coming to the conclusion that My setup is no longer really practical for hoofing around, I think it's time to upgrade my FX Unit to a rack based one. Unfortunately I know little to nothing about them. I've owned a boss gt-5 for coming up to 5 years now, which has served me well, but having...

    I recently picked up a Marshall JMP-1 to try something other than my Mesa Formula in my rack. I've been swapping them back and forth for the last two days - and driving myself crazy in the process :loco: - trying to decide if I want to keep the JMP-1. So far, here's where I'm at: I love the...
  11. Comments to Ibanez
    I wonder why Ibanez stop producing wizard necks with maple fretboards?  I'm a fan of the old RG 550's (made in Japan) that came with a maple fretboard. I would like to see the rg3120 and even new jem models with a maple fretboard.

    Okay, as you probably guessed by the topic... I know little or nothing about MIDI.  So... I need some help. Here's what I want to do: The things I want to be able to control that I have my rack are my Eggie IE4, my G-Force and my D-TWO.   Basically, all I want to be able to do is switch...

     Which, in your opinion, is better? I've heard the Mesa takes it in features(and also in price), but does it beat  Marshall's crunch machine? I'm in the market for a good pre-amp, and I have about $1050 to spend. I am pretty sure this would cover a used TriAxis and definetly a JMP, but I can't...
