    Drop Tuning/gauge/ Intonation question

    Hey guys I am hoping to get some thoughts from you guys who are more experienced with lower tunings. I've been playing 7 strings roughly since 2005 but I've always played in B standard or Drop A. I've never fooled with setting up my own guitars. I know, its easy etc...but I've just never gotten...

    Michael Kelly Guitars?

    Anyone played one of these? I've got a pretty substantial raise coming up in the next two months at work. I have been looking into picking up a new guitar. Currently I own a 1979 Les Paul Custom and an Ibanez 7421 7 string. I...

    Les Paul Custom Pickup help

    I have been playing guitar for 20 years and admittedly have not done much modification of my instruments. I have an Ibanez Rg-7421 that I put a crunch Lab 7 in the bridge and that is the extent of my pickup changing. So I have this 1979 Les Paul custom. A photo posted by Chris Rushing...

    I covered a Taylor Swift song

    I was messing around with some drum sounds and one thing led to another. I've been doing sampled vocal pop covers like this for years. They usually aren't as straight forward as this one but I thought somebody might get a kick out of it. I didn't set out to cover a Taylor Swift song but this...

    Alesis Ra-100

    I know this is probably a stretch but I guess it's worth a shot. My Alesis Ra-100 went out on me the other day. I have been able to find partial schematics, mostly of the pre-amp boards but I believe my problem is on the actual power supply board. Google is turning up mods for the amp which...

    TWO NEW The Universe Divide songs

    I know some of you enjoyed our material before so I am doing a little self promotion/spam. We have changed drummers since our last E.P. , inadvertently took some time off and now are back working on new songs. :shred: Take a listen if you have time. Thanks guys! The Universe Divide - 2014 Demo...

    Mix Advice

    This is my first attempt at a full mix in many years. We typically work with a larger studio but due to budget constraints and this being for mainly demo purposes, I am giving it a go. Any thoughts in general on the mix are appreciated. We are instrumental so there will not be any vocals...

    Preamp tubes for Engl

    I have the Engl Ritchie Blackmore signature head. I am getting ready to swap out my preamp tubes as I am starting to get some noise. I have had the stock tubes since I bought it and never had any complaints with the sound. I was curious what everyone else is using in their Engl heads or...

    More Evidence: you shouldn't quit your day job :0

    I thought this may be a short but eye opening read for some of you younger fellows who may have dreams of playing Metal for a living and subsequently being lifted off to the land of MTV Cribs and hefty paychecks. It Seems Bands Don't Make Money Off Touring Either | It's Just Business |...

    Melodic Metal/Prog Female fronted (Canvas Solaris related)

    Hey guys, I don't typically like to self promote but some friends and I (Canvas Solaris) released an album earlier this year with our good friend Narissa Wolke on vocals under "The Burden of Existence" name. I know not everyone is into female vocals so if that isn't your thing no big deal but...

    Identify my Ibanez

    I got this off a guy I used to play with about four years ago. He told me it was an RG7620 or a 7621. I have tried to find another one because I love how it plays and the fact that it is a fixed bridge but I have never been exactly sure which model it is. The serial is F9942259. Someone...

    East Coast shows/gigs?

    I play guitar for The Universe Divide The Universe Divide - Home and formerly for Canvas Solaris. We are looking to setup some shows outside of our area (Atlanta, Ga) but we aren't having much luck finding bands or venues that are interested in pairing up with us. We aren't at a stage where we...

    I am not knocking anyone in particular here and I am all for using whatever tools are available but I am curious to hear others opinions on this (for or against). I am a very open minded listener but It seems like the metal community has become overrun with bands and even more so, one man bands...
