    Peavey is updating the vypyr line

    It's crazy how my reaction to his videos is usually "eh he makes everything sound good" instead of "maybe I should practice more so I can make things sound good like Ola"

    Best Pickups for Metalcore/Posthardcore

    If you really want the Aftermath and want better cleans perhaps look at having them installed with a coil split for cleans. Also take what you read with a grain of salt always. Only you know what sounds good to you. If you tried the aftermath and it's what you want than get it regardless of...

    Fishman pickups, why so much hatred now?

    I have a set of moderns that I have loved less as I have played them more and will probably remove them for EMGs soon. Not that the fluence is bad, it just isn't scratching that itch as well as an 81/85 set does in the active voice, and the passive voice I don't even really use. I'll probably...

    Blackstar coming out with something new?

    I tried an iconic combo recently and thought it was fantastic. Given that these appear to be pricier than the iconic they will have to sound amazing to catch attention imo. I always want to like Blackstar, but I always feel a little underwhelmed when playing their amps. Like they sound good...

    Now that BK's are $200 a pop what are people gravitating towards

    I can't disagree. I remember the marketing over scatter winding and other stuff they used to do that all the fan boys got super excited over. About 10 years ago I think I, remember posting about a Seymour Duncan Custom/59 set I got and was really excited about on another forum and getting...

    Now that BK's are $200 a pop what are people gravitating towards

    Bare Knuckles are sweet pickups, there is a reason demand has allowed them to jack up prices. Also, I am inclined to not buy from the SD Custom Shop since meeting MJ at a guitar show and she had kind of an attitude to her that she didn't really want to answer questions. Not sure if she had a...

    Now that BK's are $200 a pop what are people gravitating towards

    I've been considering grabbing a set of higher powered humbucker sized p90s, and unless I am missing something the Bare Knuckles seem to be going for a little over $150/piece which seems pretty in line with a lot of "boutique" brands. Definitely higher than Duncan or Dimarzio, but they don't...

    Seymour Duncan moving 3 Custom Shop pickups to production models

    You would think they could bring it back since they still have the Screamin Demon even after George Lynch left, they just removed his name from the product. Maybe the contact is different between the two artists so that's not allowed or something weird like that. Everything I have heard on the...

    Seymour Duncan moving 3 Custom Shop pickups to production models

    I just got an email and Seymour Duncan is releasing their 78, Greeny, and High Voltage humbuckers as production pickups now. It does look like they are priced higher than their other humbuckers at $129 each. I wonder if they are trying to take some pressure off the custom shop if they are having...

    Marshall DSL50 (old) vs DSL100HR (new)

    I'm super glad you posted this, I used to have a jcm2000 that I let go of a while back that I regret letting go of. I've been debating on finding a used one or just buying one of the new DSLs but can't find any to try. This seals it for me, the new DSL sounds like a fine amp, but I'm gonna find...

    Line 6 Catalyst: New line of combo amps based on Helix modeling

    I second the Vetta III. I do have to wonder how it would do these days since people seem to be preferring floor based solutions and see combo modeling amps as mainly practice solutions.

    Line 6 Catalyst: New line of combo amps based on Helix modeling

    It is nice to see they are not reducing the features on the smaller wattage amps. I hate when companies want you to buy a bigger model for effects loops and stuff like that when I just want a combo amp to play in my apartment.

    Now that BK's are $200 a pop what are people gravitating towards

    SH5 is one of my all time favorites, I have tried replacing it with a lot of high end pickups in my Les Paul and it always goes back in. Too bad Seymour hasnt put out a neck pickup I like nearly as much lol

    Now that BK's are $200 a pop what are people gravitating towards

    I feel like Seymour Duncan and Dimarzio both really stepped up their game when Bare Knuckle and other smaller companies started to get big. Out of the smaller guys BG pickups has remained a good value and a great product.

    Finalising Specs on my Custom Balaguer, Opinions Welcome!

    I personally prefer wenge necks unfinished for the feel, but I understand finishing it for aesthetic reasons.

    Peavey is updating the vypyr line

    I saw my local guitar center has some, sadly I only had enough time to grab some strings and leave, but I'm going to go back this weekend and give it a try. Just looking at the features online though, one small gripe I have is that they seem to have gotten rid of most of their non-Peavey models...

    The Fishman Fluence Thread

    For now I dont really want to add more push pull pots. Does the difference between splitting the inner and outer coils make that much of a difference?
