    Unpopular opinions on gear

    98% of us on this forum could use a baritone instead of a 7+ string and the only difference in our playing would be that the neck is a little more comfortable.

    "Not Worth its own thread" Thread

    50 percent of all posts on this site are probably from that one kiesel thread. It's the second longest work of literature, next to that huge super smash brothers fanfic.

    Overdrive/distortion pedal as a preamp

    Z I'm obsessed with the metal zone lately. I don't even have a real one, just a behringer copy. But I'm getting better tones out of that thing than I do out of my Mark V lately. It's just such a great pedal.

    Why are you mad right now?

    Almost sold my mesa. But the eq button on the footswitch chose the moment the guy was trying it out to not work (who even uses that feature anyway. Eq never shuts off!) so he panicked and bailed. I bought a replacement cable and had it all working perfectly the next morning but by that time he...

    Buses or Busses?

    I remember seeing some examples of this, like how "horse" used to be "hros" and "bird" used to be "brid". And how it is natural for "ask" to transition to "axe". Oddly that one is harder to say for me. Probably because I pronounce it "ass".

    If I use anything other than elixir, I have to change strings every like three days cause they rust from my sweaty, caustic hands.

    Landscape/Garden Projects Thread!

    I am planning to do some raised beds in my front yard this year. I did in-ground last year and it was fine, but raised seems.... Better. Plus drip irrigation.

    RAT style distortion with a HIGH pass filter instead of a low pass?

    It would be a pretty simple diy job if you're at all handy with a soldering iron. Basically swap the positions of three of the components. It could be difficult to do if the circuit board is surface-mount, just because they're harder to work with. But through hole would be pretty simple. EDIT...

    I'm way more excited about super cheap and okay gear than I am about expensive and great gear.

    I've always used "buses" for vroom vroom buses and "busses" for beep boop busses

    If you can swing it, seeing a therapist is never a bad idea. But your self care plans sound like a solid plan too!

    The First World Problem Thread...Voice Your Struggle

    I'm actually kinda surprised that works. You've got two amps plugged into one load (your headphones). That doesn't normally... Work. Maybe it's because your phone is on battery and not grounded. Huh.

    Was browsing guitar center and they have a Boss Heavy Metal HM2 listed as a Metal Zone for 50 bucks. Someone's gonna get a great deal.

    Capacitor's and physical size

    I think you might be thinking of max voltage. Wattage typically isn't discussed for caps because in ideal conditions they don't consume any power. Size correlates with capacitance and max voltage. More capacitance: bigger cap. Higher max voltage : bigger cap. For a given material.

    Why are you happy right now?

    My almost-ten-year-old computer was starting to struggle, so I popped in 16 more gigs of ram for like twenty bucks and overclocked the processor from 3.6GHz to 4.2GHz and now it's like a brand new machine!
