    Mayones Duvell Qatsi 7 Ajna Burst

    So I went to Music Store Cologne with the intent of getting a high end instrument and I can already say that I indeed reached that goal. From all the Mayones guitars they had down there, the Duvells stood out to me as they combined insane playability, super dynamic pickup response and tonal...

    1 More active pup before converting to passive?

    My Agile Intrepid 728 came stock with Blackouts. I was expecting to hate them and swap them out pretty quick, but surprisingly, I liked them After awhile though, the lack of clarity on the bridge pickup led me to swap it out for a Retribution 7. IMO the Retribution is like a more refined...

    Some POD X3 Questions

    Well, I just placed an order for a POD X3 that I found on GC's used section. Why did I choose the X3? Cheaper than getting POD Farm Platinum, cheaper than an HD, and a few artists that I listen to still use the X3/XT technology to this date (John Browne, Chimp Spanner, etc...) However, I...

    Hey, I've been learning doxa by monuments for quite a while now and have just got it up to full speed but I'm worried my downpicking technique isn't quite right. I've been using my wrist but in really fast sections I still feel lots of tension across my entire right arm and I can feel myself...
