Just an observation. Been struggling with the EJ Stratocaster and I think I know why.
I find that my EJ Strat is on the dark side, I mean compared to my ‘52 Tele and American Strat. Am starting to think it is because of the speakers he uses.
I have an Eminence EJ1250, alnico. It is a...
Just a quick question. I just noticed that my Bassman has a power input requirement of 230v at 50hz.
The country where I am at provides 220v at 60hz.
Is there a problem with the differences in current?
Thanks in advance!
Just curious, an in general question. When pickups for a Strat are replaced, are the pickup wires normally cut to a desired or ideal length or are they usually not cut and just installed?
Do replacing pots and controls matter too? Or just replacing pickups is fine?
Just wanted to ask. I have the first series EJ Strat. I know the specs of that guitar and the Virginia. For those who have tried both, which do you prefer? Alder vs sassafras, huge difference? Both plugged and unplugged? Is the Virginia closer to AVM or both can get you there?
Wanted to ask, if an amp isn’t used for a long while, do the tubes still degrade?
I haven’t used my ‘59 Bassman LTD Reissue for a long while. It started off as great. A few days later, it sounded thin, lacking bass and compressed.
I checked the voltage and where I live, it should be...
Just wanted to ask. It’s been a while since I played with my Fender ‘59 Bassman LTD reissue. Been using my Princeton Reverb and Deluxe Reverb more just because of the situations. Smaller events for the Deluxe and recording with the Princeton in a small room.
I pulled out the...
Wanted to ask about the Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro. I am looking to use for mixing. I recently got the DT770 Pro and love it. The DT770 Pro's sound stage is amazing. I can literally hear definition and panning and not just like a left and right thing. Really impressed. I got the 770 Pro 80...
Just a quick question. For tracking I use a Mackie MC250 closed back headphones and for critical listening, Shure SRH1440 open backs.
My main reference is my Yamaha HS8 with it’s matching sub. I run my headphones into my Babyface Pro FS.
My question: is it a standard to use EQ with...
Just wanted to share an experience.
I just recently noticed my right speaker (Yamaha HS8) sounded compressed, small, darker compared to my left speaker.
Kinda drove me nuts but I figured out the solution (with a little research and luck).
It was a bad cable from my interface into...
I hope that this is the proper place to ask my question?
Can anyone recommend an iPad friendly audio interface with it’s own interface for controlling it’s internal features? I am considering a MOTU Ultralite MK5 (Cuemix 5) or Steinberg UR RT4 (DSPMixFx).
I would like to ask if anyone uses their Strymon Brigadier out into 2 amplifiers? Also, was routing into two amps part of the design of the Brigadier? Nothing on the manual about using two amps. I would like to plug direct into the input of each amp using the Brigadier. The Brigadier...
A friend of mine gave me what he thought were TAD 6L6WGC-STR tubes. He got rid of his 6L6 amp and put JJ’s in it. He knew I love TAD tubes so gave this to me.
I finally got to physically check it out and it turned out to be NOS 6L6GC tubes! Matched pair from the Tube Store.
The brand is...
I have two TAD 6v6. One with a PC rating of 35, the other 32. A difference of 3. I seem to remember but can no longer find the reference, that a max PC difference of 3 is acceptable? Can I use them together? I understand my amp won’t be as clean but will it harm either the tubes or the...
My ‘65 Deluxe Reverb has hiss. I can only say that even without any guitar plugged in and the volumes of both channels are at zero there is hiss. Increasing the volume doesn’t increase the hiss. it’s not loud but loud enough in a quiet room to be annoying. Quiet I mean, small room, no...
I have a 2 channel Fender ‘65 Deluxe Reverb reissue. The Normal channel has no reverb but the Vibrato channel does.
I was thinking of using the Vibrato channel as sort of like a reverb effect to the Normal channel (direct channel) using a Radial Engineering amp switcher set to “both”...
Are vintage pedals normally noisy. Are old, analog, bucket brigade type pedal susceptible to noise like hiss?
I am considering getting pedals like the vintage Boss CE2 or Boss DM2? But the few I have tried have hiss. I have read noise to be an issue with these pedals.
Really was just curious.
In a 2 control (Speed, Depth) chorus pedal like a Boss CE2 or an Anadime ADC-3, what happens to the dry signal? Is there still a dry signal (separate from the wet that can be heard)? Is the dry signal in a fix setting or is the dry signal connected to the Depth control...
I have a question on installing 2 speakers with different watts. One is 50w. The other is 40w. Both are 8ohms.
Right now I have 2 speakers in the 2x12 with the same watts. I have yet to put the 50w speaker in it.
I noticed in my 2x12, one speaker has all the connections there, all...
I have read online that paper cones are prone to cone cry.
All my speakers use paper cones and I have noticed that most (when used in a 1x12 configuration) have cone cry. The alnicos cry way louder and my ceramics can be low enough that most won’t hear it but but it is there. I...
I have an odd question.
How do I measure a guitar cab’s dimensions in inches?
The reason I am asking is because I am looking for an extension cab that has the same exact measurements as my Deluxe Reverb. I think I found it from Guitar Cabinet Direct.
My Problem: when I measure my...
I am interested in getting an Eminence 1x12 Wood Works cab. The spec says the cab uses a 16awg wire inside. From the head to the cab, the speaker cable I am using is an Evidence Siren. I believe the cable is 20awg.
A second question, I am also considering an Avatar Traditional 112...
I have a thud thud vibrato problem with my ‘65 Deluxe Reverb reissue. It only appears when I have my vibrato turned on and it follows the vibrato settings. My amp has come back from the shop and was told it was normal but louder than usual. No harm to the amp. I wonder if it will harm...
