    Low profile onboard guitar tuner?

    I'm looking for a tuner to mount on electric guitars, and I'm not finding exactly what I want. I want a semi-permanent solution that stays on the guitar, perhaps stuck to the pickguard. The ones I'm finding at Amazon are clip on. I want something lower profile and mounted somewhere on the body.

    Tremolo springs - Variations in stiffness (Raw Vintage vs. stock chrome, black, etc.)

    Somewhat annoying, not least because I never made a case for 'vintage' springs. That springs come in various specs. is a fact. That different springs affect how the trem feels is a fact. That 1968 Greenbacks with Pulsonic cones sound different... make that better than modern speakers, is also a...

    Examples of good slide guitar in standard tuning?

    I'm not a slide guitar aficionado per say, but I certainly appreciate good slide. I'd be curious to hear examples of good blues or rock slide guitar in standard tuning.

    Your sarcasm might be too subtle.

    Stewmac is a major disappointment.

    Update: I'm now into (business) day three, waiting for an answer to the simplest question on a part I want to order. Sent not one, not two, but three inquiries by email and Facebook messaging.

    Stewmac is a major disappointment.

    I've been buying from Stewmac for thirty years. One of the things I liked about them was they were reachable by phone. Not any longer. No phone support whatsoever. Not only have they stopped phone support, they don't even have a live chat on the website. Not only do they not have a live chat or...

    Unplugging cabinets while on standby?

    Here's the thing. I want to do extensive cabinet testing, and my assumption is powering down completely, repeatedly, when changing cabs would only take mere seconds seems more taxing on the amp than using just the standby.

    Unplugging cabinets while on standby?

    Yes, this is the characteristic when the standby's hit. The amp is a 50w Marshall clone, a hybrid, JCM800 preamp section with a JTM45 power amp section.

    Unplugging cabinets while on standby?

    I know that tube amps want to see a load and that they shouldn't be turned on without a speaker connected, but what about standby? Can one safely unplug and change cabinets while an amp is on standby?

    Counterfeit "Made in England" Greenbacks?

    1. If it gets indexed, it gets indexed not just for the supposed benefit of potential scammers but also for those who would be very interested in finding out if such a scam exists. 2. I'll be sure to consult with you before starting any more threads at TDPRI.

    Counterfeit "Made in England" Greenbacks?

    Give me a break. People need to see what I'm talking about to form opinion. And perhaps now many people (including you) will alert Celestion.

    Counterfeit "Made in England" Greenbacks?

    I stumbled onto this ebay listing for Celestion Greenback labels: Ebay listing I can't see there being a big market for those who have Greenbacks with labels so worn that they'd need replacing, so I'm imaging people are putting these on Celestion International speakers and selling them as Made...
