    Soul Press II is a true bypass pedal and an upgrade from the original Soul Press, and with some significant changes. This pedal has Volume, Wah, an Expression out and a Volume/Wah combo. In the latter instance, the toe switch acts as a control between the Volume/Wah (shifting from one to the...
  2. Pickups & wiring
    Hey everyone. I have been trying to install the Stephen Carpenter pickups in my 8 String Prestige but I am running into an issue of the volume knob not working. I have full volume all the time but turning the knob doesn't effect the volume at all. I initially used the coil tap volume pot and...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I've been searching for months but for some reason I can't seem to figure out what would be a good replacement for volume/tone pots. I'm getting into doing some soldering and on one my used guitars the previous owner had done a number on pickup replacements with the amount of solder used, which...

    Both the volume and tone pots on my RG652 sound like they're scraping when I turn them. They sound fine plugged in, there's no added noise that I can hear. It's just when I turn them I hear it (unplugged). Anyone else have this problem or have an idea what it is? I'd rather not replace...

    Hi Looking for assistance in tracking down a set of Ibanez red Volume, tone & a switch tip for my RG770DX RR that I am restoring to its fullest potential. Thing is I have ordered a couple of sets on non genuine Ibanez which when they have arrived just do not look right. Have had a look around...

    Just scored a JEM for a GREAT price from a pawn shop I walked into. Guy didn't know what he had at all- thought it was just an Ibanez RG and had it priced as such. Good stuff- I've always wanted one for my collection because they look awesome. Never been a huge fan of Steve's tone (don't flame...
  7. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    There doesn't seem to be a way to embed this, but: I threw a new SSS pickguard on my Strat recently (I'd had it SSH for years), and in doing so tried a couple different treble bleed approaches - I didn't do any video of the "50's wiring" approach, but I did a before/after when I decided to...

    hi everyone, i have a problem with my Blackstar HT60 combo and his “volume”. At every rehearsal with my band it seems that his volume, his power, is very different each time. Sometimes i have to set the volume knob at 7 or beyond, but in other rehearsals 3 is enough! I feel that also when i use...

    Does anyone have one of these? http://www.jhspedals.com/products/bass-pedals/little-black-amp-box/ I am looking to buy a Peavey 6505+ 112 combo, but I only play at home. I haven't had a tube amp in ages, but I can't stand the tone of modelling amps any longer! I need real tubes! The video...

    Could someone school me on the tonal differences between 250K/500K/1000K pots? For discussions sake in a single hum equipped guitar.

    My 2004 Jem7VW is a little shrill at low volume...let me explain. I removed the tone pot. I kept the volume and original 330pF cap. Sounds killer until I roll off the volume, as then it gets harsh. What do you suggest. A 100K resistor in series or change the cap to 220pF etc. Let me know...

    Hi everyone! I recently got a guitar, 2 humbuckers ,1 volume knob (no tone knob) and pickup selector switch. When I have a high gain setting and turn the volume knob up/down, it makes a crackling sound! It happens whichever pickup selection I have on. This is the first time i have came across...

    Hello forum fellows! This is my very first thread! Here are two of my Ibanez instruments, both modded for an aproximation towards the N4 Washburn model. The were three reasons for these mods: first, I am a mod fan; second, I was short on money for purchasing an N4, and; third, since I am a mod...

    Hey guys, I just become the owner of a 2002 era RG3120vv. It's in pretty good shape and will surely give me long nights of pleasure (oh yeah ahah). However I have 2 little questions regarding the neck. I also have some maintenance problems with the guitar that will write down below. I could...

    Hi. I've tried so many techniques during my life. I always thought that, as opposed to what many say, pick actually has to be As Parallel as Possible to the string. Yes, you have more resistance from the string, but Less Pick Attack Noise, which translates to cleaner sound. But technique seems...
