    What do you look for in a distortion pedal?

    my two main pedals for distortion are the: Blackstar Dual Distortion/preamp pedal. It sounds great and pushes the amp and has a good distorted sound overall. I like it because I can also plug straight in to the board in case of a catastrophe. This has happened before and it saved my

    Korea Air smash Steve Vai’s Guitar “Bo”

    honestly it all sounds very typical of Korea. Something happened because of something they did and the reaction is "NO! WE DIDNT DO IT! THEEEEYYYY DID IT! WE WOULD NEVER! HOW DARE YOU!?" basically. they did it. The airline is upset beacuse Asiana crashed that plane in SFO a few weeks ago and...

    Moshing now illegal?

    there is such a thing as a "safe pit" its having some self awareness. What the shit is the point of someone up? and not taking it personally? seriously? Its not a UFC match, its a show. People were nice for taking care of that girl, but not the people who thought it was cool to bash her...

    Moshing now illegal?

    yknow, I dont really care about moshing when its just good natured kinetic fun. When people are sharing the energy of the atmosphere and they take care of each other in the pit. Sadly I see that less and less and less as the years go on. When I was first jumping in pits, it wasnt just guys...

    When did passive electronics become so popular? :o

    I think that passive pickup makers started making a pretty incredible variety of new contemporary options. Honestly. Look at the dimarzio, duncan, LACE and of course BKP roster these days....its impressive and commend them for listening to their customers and having the sense and courage to try...

    What do you look for in a pickup?

    Bridge: Clarity with body. This usually means I get a "vintage hot" pickup. They can usually get really aggressive if I want them to, but will still keep that nice bright clear vintagey sound. Neck: It has to sound good clean. It has to be the "pretty" pickup. Not too much bass, still bright...
