bought one of those amt VHT preamps for shits and giggles.
Ordered some Winspear Shiv Minis with 3mm thickness in Gold and Purity. I loved the dimensions in Stealth but they just wore way too fast.
Sitting here watching youtube vids of that pedal and the Airis Nemesis figuring out if I even go down that "tone magic school" of dry, tight
I have a love/hate relationship with dry/tight tones.
Shes only dry and tight because you haven't made her wet yet.
Or in otherwords, try a chorus (before or after) or reverb (after).
Definitely want to hear what you think of it
maybe axe fx3,Ormsby 7 string hype,Skervensen
Gear moratorium for the time-being, but it's because I'm looking to sell my condo and move into a house. I haven't had a legit (not compromised on account of sharing a wall with people) high-gain amp rig in what feels like forever. Now's as good a time as any to start planning.
I am GAS'ing ridiculously hard over a particular guitar and trying to figure out how to afford it... unfortunately everything I would sell is in storage 10,000 miles away lol.
Stuck between the KSR Ceres, an H-H Tele, Sterling Axis, or wait for the Solar singlecut.
So, I recently bought a couple bags of picks that I'd never tried before. Had to order them because I live in a pretty remote place. I ordered Ultex Jazz III XLs and Petrucci Jazz IIIs. I received the Ultex XLs first. Aside from the learning curve of going back to a larger pick (I've played regular stiffo Jazz IIIs for a while now), I really like them. Fairly thin, but still stiff enough that they don't have a lot of flex despite their size, which combines the best parts of the Jazz III and the JD 208, which is the pick I used before adopting Jazz IIIs. So, I thought to myself, "boy, if I like these, then I think I'm REALLY gonna like the Petruccis!"
Fast forward to a couple days ago. I finally got that package and... I'm not really feeling them.
On paper, they seemed perfect. But I find they're quite slick to hold. They look grippy, more so than the Ultex Jazz III XLs, but they actually feel significantly less so. I also thought that their in-between size would feel perfect, but it actually ended up feeling more awkward than either regular Jazz IIIs or XLs.
Well, lesson learned I guess.
Easy to narrow down. Do you like your current higher gain tones? Get a guitar. If you like your current guitars and want better tone buy the pedal.
I’d buy the pedal. That’s just me though.
Well my Helix is fine, just wanted to get more variety.
I actually might get a Squier Contemporary Tele. The white one looks bitching. Plus fucking maple fretboards.
I’ve played a bunch of great Sterling guitars as of late. I was actually shocked how good they were. Reminded me of some of the better PRS SE guitars. Maybe just me. YMMV...
My mileage went as far as splintered and stripped out trem post holes with a crack leading from one through the whole trem route in the body (going toward the neck side of the route). The crack was painted over too. "Oh, this is fine, send it through". The body wood seemed really soft and balsa-y
It was a SUB Albert Lee HH, so idk maybe the higher-up ones like the JPs and Majesties are alright. But man, it was the fuckiest thing I've ever seen in a guitar with a QC sticker
Well damn that sucks! My only experience was a bunch of newer JP ones at Sam Ash in Manhattan. And they were all set up great too. I had been playing Suhrs and other high end guitars all day and the Sterlings didn’t disappoint by comparison. But your experience says a lot about both the manufacturer and the retailer!
I was avoiding the SUBS because the AX40 version supposedly has a real maple cap below a maple veneer. The AX4 has a photo top according to Sterling or Brian themselves. Don't remember.
Had a K&K Pure Mini installed in my Taylor 214. Anyone else have this pickup in their acoustics?
