    Crate Gfx1200

    Been on a kick for a cheap solid state head for that old school death metal riffage and I always hear the Crate heads are good for that. I'm guessing it's 120w. Is 120w solid state loud enough to keep up with a loud ass caveman drummer? I had an Excalibur back in the day(my first real amp) and...

    Highest output OD/TS on the cheap

    Having neglected my H&K for the last couple years after getting my Invective I hooked her up and remembered why I've never gotten rid of this amp after 25 years. I love it. The amp is kinda Recto-ish un-boosted. Wall of sound type thing, with pretty loose feeling huge low end. Lots of sag...

    KT88's vs 6l6

    So I'm pretty sure the tubes in my Invective are going out. At band volume the sound fluctuates in and out, but not at lower bedroom volume. Sounds like a tube issue, yes? The Invective manual says it will run KT88's so I think after hearing the hype for these tubes for years I'm going to try...

    Dimarzio with stark contrast to a Blaze?

    I still really like the Blaze in the bridge of my 1527. But now that I have a 7321 that I'm upgrading and going to have some fretwork done on, I want another DiMarzio that has a lot more upper mid bite to it than the Blaze has. It'll be tuned in drop B or drop A# into my Invective. Not playing...

    Solderless or soldered instrument cable?

    Setting up my pedalboard and I'm wanting to have cables that are exactly the length I need, then gonna snake them together to keep things nice and neat. I've not done much soldering and I'm not scared to do it, but are solderless just as reliable? They seem easier than soldering. Figured I'd...

    Handheld recorder or laptop/interface

    Looking into getting some recording gear. For now it's just my drummer and I, with a bass player coming pretty soon. I'm really just wanting to be able to record our practices to listen back to as well as record riffs/ideas at home. That's why I'm thinking one of those handheld Tascam(or...

    ??? for Pedaltrain pedal board users...

    ...how is the quality of the the soft case? I've decided to stick to individual pedals instead of getting an HX Stomp or FX as I really dislike menu diving. And with my stable of pedals mounting, I need a board. I'm not a touring musician but I will be hauling everything back and forth to jams...

    Boss DD7 vs Source Audio Nemesis

    I already own a DD7 and really like it, but I'm looking to get a 2nd delay pedal. Not sure if I want to get a 2nd DD7 or try something different like the Nemesis. Anyone own(ed) both that can chime in on the differences/features? I know that the Nemesis is a Midi capable and that is a big plus...

    Specific production year of RG7321's?

    I'm really thinking about getting a 7321 because of how cheap they are, and upgrading the pups, tuners, and bridge. I remember someone mentioning a while back about certain years of production for these that were more desirable than others, but don't recall what years it was. There's a '07 on...

    Intonation Issue...

    Bought a new set of the exact brand and gauge of strings that are were on my 1527, La Bella HRS 9-64's. And I cannot get the low B to intonate. Adjusted the saddle 6 or 7 times and it's just way off no matter how I adjust it forward or backward. Could it be a bad string? I've never had an...

    Bass amp advice...

    So I'm helping a friend decide on a bass combo. He's brand new to playing and doesn't want anything massive or earthshaking. It'll be pretty much for practising and low volume jamming with me. Budget: around $250, possibly a bit more if we can find something really cool. He's interested in...

    String recommendations for acoustic 7

    So I just snagged an Ibanez AEL207e off of GC. Should be here Friday. Haven't played acoustic in years so I'm rather ignorant of what to try. Plan to tune to drop B, possibly drop A. Suggestions on material, brand, gauges please? Thanks for reading.

    Tell me about midi capable delay and FX...

    I'm looking to upgrade from my stand alone pedals and go to midi capable units to use with my Invective to eliminate all the tap dancing and have multiple settings on hand. Right now I'm looking at Strymon and Boss. Timeline vs DD500 & Morbius vs MD500 With the modulation units I want to be...

    Considering having a guitar Plek'd...

    I'm waiting on Sweetwater to get in some more of the Schecter Apocalypse C7's and I'm going to grab one. That is if they get some with a nicer wood grain than the last few I've seen on their site. I'm wondering if it would be worth it or even necessary to have it done on a Schecter in that...

    PRS SE 7 string build quality.....

    I'm seriously on the brink of picking up one of the Axe Palace limited run PRS baritone 7's. I'm wondering if the build on PRS at this price level will be worth adding the price of upgraded pups, tuners, and possibly bridge to it. Or if I would get better build quality from the new Schecter SLS...

    Tell me about Amt Legends

    Recently realized that apparently these pedals, or at least the 2nd versions, are capable of being used as a 2 channel preamp in which you're able to run one output for cleans and the other for gain. But how exactly? Would it be say, into the FX return of my amp for gain and the output for the...

    I need a tech....

    (not sure if this should be posted here mods, sorry if it's not, please move) A tech or someone that at least knows what they're doing that is somewhat close to Indianapolis. I'm having trouble finding someone that isn't some classic rock "if its not Fender or Gibson its not a real guitar"...

    TC Electronics Wiretap

    Anyone used this before/own one? Seems like it'd be pretty handy. Wondering how good the Android app for it is. Anyone?

    Radial Headbone amp switcher

    I'm really thinking about picking this up soon. I'd prefer to have a Boss ES-8 or Ground Control Pro but they aren't really in the budget with everything else I'm doing gear wise ATM. I already have 2 identical H&K heads to play through(one for gain one for clean) so why not, right? Who's used...

    Titan 7's or Illuminator...7's that is the ???

    As the title says. I want clarity for chords under hi gain, aggressive, chunky, and fairly bright. Versatility is important too, so I'm really wondering how the Titans will do in that department. I know they're pretty agrressive. Though Im pretty sure the Illuminators are good versatility...
