    Radiohead Archive

    I discovered Radiohead only about 4 years ago and they are now one of my favorite bands. Never really liked Creep, so I had tuned them out in the past. In Rainbows is my favorite album right now, but will give Pablo Honey some critical listening over the next few weeks. I saw them live at...

    Just sitting there eating a sandwich……..

    There are 4 out there at Sweetwater, one at 7lb 3oz. Nice looking fretboard, too. I have two Squiers with Indian Laurel fretboards. I like them very much. Somewhat odd though, as one of them has somewhat open pores and the other very closed. Does not affect playability, and I suspect they will...

    Strawberry Switchblade

    Cool song, great performance. Sounds like it was recorded and mixed well, although I have not given it a critical listen on a decent system. What do you call the style? Sounds like a cross between new wave and metal.

    Long May You Run, 1976

    I usually approach this kind of video with skepticism. But, whoa! Just beautiful. Love your voice and guitar accompaniment was just right. Sound quality was quite good, too. Thanks for sharing.

    Second time this band has come to my attention in the past week. Energetic, to say the least.

    NAD- I’ve been after this one for years.

    Thanks for your additional reply, Wally. I have read page 10 more carefully this time. (Sometimes one has to be smacked on the head.) Nevertheless, it requires a little reading between the lines. So, it would seem that the Output control determines how much of the overall gain that passes...

    NAD- I’ve been after this one for years.

    Thanks, Wally, I have this manual and have read it. My question was really more about what this output control does. Is it an attenuator, for example? If I drive a lot of gain and volume through the master and then dial down the volume with the output control, am I asking for trouble? What...

    I said I was done

    I admire your tenacity and willingness to endure these procedures, and wish you all the best. My father-in law had quintuple by-pass in his early fifties, pancreatic cancer in his 70's and then melanoma. Surgery for the pancreatic cancer was significant, like getting your guts re-plumbed. He...

    Hi all

    G'day! And welcome. Whereabouts in Australia? I spent a year in the Wollongong area many years ago.

    Tough decision

    Great news about your recovery. As for the guitars, I would not be concerned about it being an import. I recently entered into Squier territory and now own a Jaguar (Indonesia) and Toronado (China). Both are beautifully crafted and fun to play (although the latter's pups might be up for...
