    String Muting Help

    Hello geezers. Recently I've decided a thorough examination of my playing is needed. I'm noticing a lot of noise is being made when I'm playing scales. It seems to me that as soon as I move from one string to the next, my fingers seem to gently pull off on the string leaving it ringing out -...

    I need new pedals and a power supply, help?

    This might sound moronic, I'm not very clued up with power supplies, the Voodoo Lab ISO 5 has 4 9v outputs. Would it be possible to power multiple pedals out of one output using a link cable?

    I need new pedals and a power supply, help?

    I currently have a Carbon Copy which sounds beautiful, so ideally I'd like to use the CC to add subtle delay alongside another delay with a tap tempo. I suppose I could sell the Carbon Copy to buy something better that does everything I want. EHX Deluxe Memory Boy looks quite good but I've also...

    I need new pedals and a power supply, help?

    I haven't been on here in a while so hello again! I come to you bearing questions. My band's starting to take off a little bit and I've come to that wonderful point as a guitarist where I actually NEED to buy more pedals to improve my live sound. I currently only have an MXR Carbon Copy...

    Can you guys gimme some tips on live performance?

    Here's a vid of my band's first gig. I would LOVE it if you guys could give me any tips on our live performance, we have a biggun coming up in a few weeks time that we'd like to impress at! I am aware that we don't move for the first 2 minutes or so. And that we're a bit out of tune...

    Changing one 2x12 for two 1x12s?

    Thanks for that man. That seems pretty pricey for just a 1x12? I can't help but think that an Orange 1x12 would be a better deal at £200 brand new. At the moment I've got some old Randall 2x12, it's pretty sturdy, but just too much really. I've never tried my amp through anything less than a...

    Changing one 2x12 for two 1x12s?

    So, my cab at the moment is giving me numerous issues concerning weight and size. I play it in my room which is at the top of a narrow staircase and it's always difficult to shift it down the flight of stairs, as it weighs a tonne. So I've though about getting two 1x12s, which would be easier...

    Les Paul vs. Telecaster buying conundrum...

    Could be a plan - I liked the locking tuners and noiseless pickups as it would be a live guitar, but I'll see what the 52 is like tomorrow, when I go try them.

    Les Paul vs. Telecaster buying conundrum...

    Spot on. It's only Fender - my relative is an employee and so I can get guitars for staff prices. Although that's Fender, Jackson, Gretsch, Taylor... just to rub it in :D I'm leaning towards the tele - seems to be a case of more bang for my buck and I'd also have some cash left over. But it...

    Les Paul vs. Telecaster buying conundrum...

    I think the tele's return policy is sell it on for profit and buy something else :lol: What's the consensus on a Les Paul Traditional Pro? And then on an American Vintage Telecaster? A bit different I know but I'm considering options, the VIntage tele might be a bit different.

    Les Paul vs. Telecaster buying conundrum...

    Thanks very much for the responses, much appreciated! I think there is an issue because I won't be able to play them first. The Gibson would be sent from a shop in Scotland, and I wouldn't be able to try it, and the tele would come from the Fender factory. However from what I've heard, if I'm...

    Les Paul vs. Telecaster buying conundrum...

    I should mention that I have a JB jr. in my Strat, which is pretty much a single coil sized humbucker. So I do have the big tone at the mo, but could still swap a single coil back in if I went for a Gibbo... still, it's the twang that gets me!

    Les Paul vs. Telecaster buying conundrum...

    Now I'm a man with some contacts. And so I have the opportunity to either purchase a brand new Fender USA Deluxe Tele for about £700, or a brand new Les Paul Standard Goldtop for £1100 ish. For those of you American folks, that's pretty good. What I want is something classic that will last me...

    MONTANE - rock with post rock influences

    Hey guys. This is my band Montane. Some of you might dig it but it's not really the typical thing you get around here! The post rock influences are pretty hard to come by... it's pretty standard rock. MONTANE on Myspace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads If you're curious...

    Adjusting delay in a live setting...

    So I've just got an MXR Carbon Copy, which is rather snazzy. And it works super, and sounds great. My only issue is, when we play live, I'll use delay a lot. So I'm trying to figure out how best to change it around between songs. The controls are very sensitive, anyone have any suggestions for...

    Architects (UK) - "The Here and Now" Studio Blog! New Single "Day In Day Out"

    True, i remember in the Hollow Crown videos they were saying how they didn't want to be that technical anymore. But to be fair there has to be some progression, it would be hard to keep bringing out stuff that sounds the same every time and it's probably easier with music like this. Their fan...
