    Which would be better in a gibson for 80's thrash and southern metal for both leads and rhythm? Are the lead tones about the same on them?

    Hey guys :) I recorded these back in May with the mic from a Speedlink Medusa 5.1 headset, look up the specs if you like but it's certainly not the most high fidelity mic out there. I don't remember mic placement too well. This is just a smattering of high-gain thrash metal riffs, guess the...

    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...

    Recently I put in an add to join a band. It said "I've been playing sixteen years and my influences range from Zeppelin to Arch Enemy. I'm looking to join any kind of rock or metal band. But, I won't wear make up or any costumes (you need to say that in Japan)." So I have landed with some...

    Hey guys... Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone who used to play Jackson moved on to ESP? Case in point: Jeff Hanneman (Slayer) Kirk Hammett (Metallica) Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom) Dave Mustaine (ok, he's with Dean now) Michael Paget (Bullet for My Valentine) Ralph Santolla...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...

    I currently have a Les Paul with a JB in the bridge and using a Marshall JCM2000 TSL for an amp. I love the amps overdrive when I am playing stuff like Tool, but now I need a pedal to get that good (actually lofi) industrial/goth distortion. I dont like playing things in stores so I figure Ill...
  16. Pickups & wiring
    I need some suggestions for replacement pickups in 91' RG550 which still has the stock pickups installed, as the previous owner neglected to replace them. I don't have much experience with pickups in general so bear with me. For the bridge pickup I'd like some thing that is similar to the...

    I have an RG2020xtb. I had been thinking of going with an EMG 81/89 set, but I'm still on the fence in which direction to go with, I've had several recommendations for several brands. As far as Dimarzios I've been recommended Evos, SS/Air norton, breeds, however, some say Dimarzios aren't all...
