    Orange Cab for home use 1X12 v. 2x12

    I tried the orange 1x12 with MiC V30, found it kidn of harsh definitely got that cut that everybody's looking for live, and the cab is really well made. 2x12's are really versatile, a Mesa or other UK V30 and a creamback/greenback sound great together, give you lots of tracking possibilities...

    Another Earcandy Cabs Complaint...

    This is sad, but that domain name, I would guess he's going to get thousands for it, which should cover at least a few refunds.

    macOS 13 Ventura

    I always wait at least a few weeks to see what breaks and usually til the .1 minor release of a major release. Also, espec with older macs 2015 era, you need to review if you're eligible but if you're cut off from Ventura you'll still get security updates for a couple years or so. Hacker news...

    Things to look out for when getting used speakers

    too late now, but my G12T looks a lot worse than that and sounds great. In future, you can test w/multimeter for DC resistance, the 9 volt test, cone should move, and the coil rub test, push *very* gently with 4 fingers evenly distributed around perimeter of cone (from both sides, when i...

    ¿Fretless Conversion?

    I have a fretless strat, the slots were filled with some sheet maple the same thickness as fret tangs, 5 wound strings play pretty well. Can't see the filler, all my fretless instruments have no lines, cello, violins, bass, well, ok the pedal steel has lines... Berklee prof Fiuczynski ...

    Is it me or does REAPER (DAW) sound muddy/congested/crammed/flat?

    To be clear, is it an early gen Focusrite Scarlett? Those didn't have great preamps, maybe you could borrow a 3 gen, Octo, clarett to compare. Or channel strip or dedicated pre ... also i remember Snoman's Dance Music Manual book ahving lots of tips on making kicks/ snare/hat and VST/synth...

    Mid-range 8 String Guitars

    I get to try lots of Ibz/LTD/Schec/Jax at stores around here... Hard to recommend, but I like all 4 brands. Some of the MiK's i've had recently disappointed in fret jobs and other ways, but the MiC's surprised with how relatively fault free they were. You might still see big flat tops across a...

    Multiscale seven-strings, mid-price recs?

    Lots of models from big 4 Ibanez ESP /LTD Schecter and Jackson. Also Cort Legator Agile etc. I think i would take the schecter c7 SLS ms elite over the silver mountain, the SM's finish is pretty thick and needs to be steel wooled down on back of neck. These 2 models look similar but different...

    Trying to buy (or build) a double neck (6 / baritone 6)

    I don't know what happened to reverb search, when you used to search "double neck guitar" a couple years back, that's what it would show you, now you get zero useful results. Thanks Etsy! But if you work at it, you might dig up something decent

    Anyone else not like glossy guitar necks?

    Only matters in summer when hands are sweating but mostly 0000 synthetic steel wool takes care of it, maybe a tiny amount of talc powder . Try holding onto a half pound pedal steel bar with sweaty hands..

    Trying to understand fret buzz on some guitars and not others

    You can sight down the neck and look at the string reflections off the frets and see uneven relief (more relief on bass side of neck), high frets, a hump over neck joint, warp/twist,

    Hmnm, I was expecting, I dunno, a hurdy gurdy? But NSGD! Since you can't see my sig photo clearly, I'll just tell you there's a pedal steel and lap steel there...I recall peeps on teh steel guita forum saying those SX's can use some bridge tightening and other stuff to get tone and intonation...

    Stolen JPXI 7 in Tampa Bay Area, FL

    I hate hearing stories like this, sorry it had to happen to you. One thing you could have somebody check if the serial number/descrip is still in the NCIC database. I think buyers in pawnshops and guitarshops can run serial numbers in the database to check...

    Got an Agile Chiral 10 string today

    Maybe somebody already said (and the picture of bridge isn't real clear but): first you can cut the spring in the bridge for a little more travel, then dremel the back of the saddle for more travel (make sure you don't spray metal bits all over the pickups)
