    Cheap hihats?

    I've got a stagg DH set, from what I've heard they're quite hit and miss but the ones I've got are absolutely awesome. I managed to pick up an ex-demo set for next to nothing off ebay, but they're not exactly absurdly expensive new.

    Good point. Pickup allowing. As you can see I ballsed up slightly and had to have a straight pickup so the closer to the bridge the better for that one... Hence perpendicular fret at the 12th. But yes were I to do take two, ideally I'd probably bias it slightly for playability's sake.

    Anyone here bench, lift weights, etc?

    yes sirree. I don't know if they ship worldwide, but belts are IPF approved and stuff. Also when I eventually have my own place and set up my own gym I'll be getting everything from there!

    I have 25.5-27.5 on my 8 string. Definitely grateful for that extra half inch in the bottom register. Doesn't feel unnatural either, but it does have a flat fretboard and no head. Try a mock up on a piece of hardboard or something maybe for a bit of a visual? N.B the zip tie is no longer a...

    Anyone here bench, lift weights, etc?

    For you UK folks looking for belts etc, I can recommend this. Got one recently and the quality is top dog. I know a lot of folks who have got stuff from strengthshop (shoes in particular) and swear by it...

    Anyone here bench, lift weights, etc?

    Recently got a 140 kgx3 on squat. 180 kg deadlift, but far too embarrassed by my bench. I only weigh 67 though so hopefully if I just eat more it'll get in line with the other lifts...

    Pan pedal help!!

    Hey guys, been a while since I posted. I'm trying to mod a wah pedal to blend my signal between two setups variably. I've tried to extrapolate the necessary info I need from a basic blend circuit backwards, I.e one input and two outputs. Can a genius tell me what I've done wrong? I'm getting...

    Tips for a beginner Spend a bit of time watching Elliott's videos. If I'm losing direction or motivation, an hour or so of watching him talk tends to get me excited to go and lift again. DEADLIFTS!

    Anyone here bench, lift weights, etc?

    Cheers for that man. I'm definitely going to full depth... Haven't been squatting at particularly high percentages of 1rm, just quite a lot of volume. Been concentrating on my form a lot so hopefully I'm not doing any damage through that. Might have been the box jumps I was doing recently...

    Anyone here bench, lift weights, etc?

    set a new deadlift PR this week, 155kg (341lbs for you imperial folk). I like to think I'm doing ok for 67kg (just under 150) bodyweight. That along with some pretty brutal squatting. Been doing 5-3-1 but working away and stuff have sort of scuppered my routine which is very annoying... Hoping...

    I dunno man... Don't forget you have rights to your own life. She doesn't dictate what you can and can't do, and if it isn't working there's not much either of you can do to stop that. Prolonging the situation certainly won't, and if moving out is what's going to help both of you move on (and...

    Track critique-proggy metal something or other

    Wow thanks man, really helpful input! I was totally thinking along the same lines regarding the intro. Hope you liked the rest of it too. Yeah the speech from the great dictator just fits so well with the vibe of the album and the concept. We want to expand that a bit more. Used it in the final...
