    Why does my acoustic guitar strings wear out faster?

    I’m using PB strings. The 80/20 set I had if I remember lasted a little longer. Will string cleaner help before and after playing? I heard it’s not good to use cleaners but I forgot why.

    Why does my acoustic guitar strings wear out faster?

    I don’t use it that much but when I do the strings feel like rusty or something? I always keep the guitar in its gig bag. Don’t have a problem with electric strings.

    Playing/practicing guitar with one studio monitor

    I recently have mention that I like playing guitar through my peavey vypyr amp and when using amp sims, my recordings don’t sound the same as what I was playing or just don’t like playing with sims that much. But today was different, just for curiosity, I pan everything hard left and only...

    Palm muting technique question

    How much pressure do you guys use to get close to a real chug or crunchy tone? Also I think my pick gets stuck when palm muting with thicker strings but not with thinner strings.

    Anyone uses hybrid gear?

    Yes you are right. So I just got a boss gt pedal to try that method and the volume drops when panning ( hard left and hard right). I have the Output of the boss connected straight to the input of my audio interface using a ts cable. No issues with amp plugins when guitar is connected straight...

    Scale length question

    Don’t they say If you have a guitar with a 24,75 scale length, and have 10 gauge string on it tune to E standard, that guitar will have the same string tension and feel the same as a 25,5 with 9s tune to E standard? I have an Lp and the 10s feel like they have more tension that I had to tune it...

    Should I upgrade my duncan design active pickups?

    Is it just the Actives DDPups or the passives too? Thanks I’ll look into some EMGs. I like that they are solderless.

    Should I upgrade my duncan design active pickups?

    They are stock pickups that came with my schecter and I really don’t like the tone of the bridge pickup. Really thin sounding and other things that are hard to describe. Will upgrading to some Emgs or Seymour Duncan improve the sound? Or just go passives? My other two guitars have passives and...

    Stand-alone amp plugin vs Daw

    Sorry any idea how? I’m playing around with the daws master output but no change in the Nolly plugins output ( still showing one meter) but it looks like the master output is already set to stereo but no changes.

    Stand-alone amp plugin vs Daw

    Stand-alone amp plugin vs Daw

    I hope is just me but does anyone notice that their amp plugin in standalone sounds better than when it’s used in your daw? I have this problem with archetype Nolly, in standalone, it reacts better and sounds fuller. I checked all settings on both plugin and daw.

    Interface input level vs plugins input level

    After playing around with my focusrite input signal and different amp sims, it looks like I get better results with a higher/hotter signal coming in. -8db to -4db showing in my daw but no clipping, only pre clipping on my focusrite. I’m enjoying Archetype Nolly. No more muddy tone!

    Nut width and string spacing question

    I have two guitars with the same nut width size, A schecter demon 6 & ESP ltd-213. The Ltd seems like it takes more time to reach the next string so I was wondering if two guitars with the same nut width size can have different string spacing? I did my research and both have a 42mm nut or I...
