    What constitutes a great metal recording tone?

    I recently started exploring the Lasse Lammert presets for Axe FX and noticed his tones are incredibly dry and thick. Generally I have been dialing in and playing with tones that felt way more wet and spongy in comparison, with way more air and sustain. I am having trouble playing convincingly...

    What is your favorite combo for active neck/bridge humbucker pickups? Looking for recommendations

    Hi there! I am kinda new to this active pickups thing. So far I am happy with the ones I got for my 6 string CGCFAD guitar (EMG 81&85). I've seen there is also a 7 string version but I think I want something different for my 7 string. What I play is heavy chugging riffs on my bridge pickup...

    I'm finally getting a new 8-string made! I'm not sure about where to set my custom turning for the build. Standard F# or I'm considering asking for EBEADGBE because I quite like having that simple tuning for when I make my own stuff or improvise but is it worth it to do that or just ask for...

    Shipping insured. What do you use?

    I’m curious about what service you use to ship guitars and what insurance you buy when you do. I’ve used UPS in the past but since I’ve been selling on reverb I’ve used their protection. It’s been really helpful but I’ve mostly sent smaller items like a preamp and pedals. Now I’m about to send...

    How to Sound Like Deftones

    I have a new video up on how to recreate a Deftones-style guitar tone. I was going for the Around the Fur, White Pony, Self-Titled Deftones era. And I used STL Tones Amphub because it now has an emulation of the Marshall JMP-1 in there, which is the preamp that Steph used during this time. Check...
