    End in sight for GT-1000?

    Hi All, Do you think the GX-100 with its touch screen is an indicator that the GT-1000 is likely to be retired and replaced sometime soon? Thank you

    Yamaha dxr8 vs QSC CP8

    Hi all, Looking for a loud but lightweight frfr solution. Trying to stay between 20-30lbs if possible. Ive seen some very good reviews of the CP8 in context to an amp modeler and Ive seen a lot of recommendations for the DXR10 but nothing on the DXR8. There seems to be some inventory issues...

    NGD & NAD

    I bought a Gibson '61 SG. I always wanted one. A recent gig had me thinking about lighter guitars and watching The Main Squeeze (no affiliation) crank out Whipping Post and Have a Cigar on Youtube lit my fire. I am loving playing this thing. I'm not selling my Tele's or Strat but at present I...

    Secret Sauce

    What are your ingredients for your personal secret sauce for killer guitar tones? I am a restless soul when it comes to music gear and am constantly swapping gear and trying different combinations of guitars and pedals and amps seeking that killer tone. I am curious what others have tried that...

    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of Solid State...

    Hey all, Once upon a time I bought a modeller pedal. It was top of the line at the time. I enjoyed playing with it and all the stuff it could do was cool but at the end of the day it just wasn't me. Fast forward to today and I am slogging all this gear to an open air show at the Zoo. The...

    In Ear Monitors

    Hey all, I was recently asked to fill in on guitar for the Worship team at a local church. It was an interesting experience with IEMs and voices talking in my head and trying to get a good mix, etc. I just did my second Sunday with them and it has become painfully obvious that my ear buds are...

    Princeton Reverb Reissue 12" P12Q

    Hi, I bought a Princeton Reverb, the tweed one from Sweetwater with the 12" Cannabis Rex. I don't like the CR, way too dark. I put a new Jensen P12Q thinking it was the natural choice for classic Princeton amp tones. I've heard they take a while to break in but honestly I'm not sure. It sounds...

    Drum overhead mics

    Hi all, I currently have the highly venerated and everybody's favorite overhead mics, the Samson C01! I am planning on replacing them with something less reputable like a pair of akg c214, Shure ksm137, or the Oktava km012. I am interested in your opinions, perceptions, experiences, and...

    Other instruments...

    Hi All, Many of us focus our efforts on guitar. I do but I like to dabble in other instruments too. For example, I just bought a mandolin, I play a little keyboards, drums, bass, harp, etc. I've been considering Violin and Sax but those two intimidate me. They are so different from anything...

    Mandolin recommendation

    Hi Everybody, I was thinking it would be nice to have a mandolin around. I probably wouldn't use it a lot but possibly on the occasional recording project plus I just like playing around with different instruments. Unfortunately my ignorance on mandolins is extreme. I have fairly large hands...

    Scary Pockets

    Hi all, I stumbled across these videos on YouTube. They do funk versions of popular songs. Different line up of people on every song, the Keyboardist and possibly the bassist seem to be the only constant. Really fun, I'm linking one video but you really can't go wrong with any of the others...

    Finding the perfect band

    Hi all, I always seem to end up in bands that fall into 1 of 2 catagories... 1. All practice but can't get out of the basement. People never show up prepared. Band gets nowhere. 2. Someone sends out a set list, no rehearsals, better pay attention because it is all live fire. I admit I...

    Unique guitar tones

    What are the most unique recorded guitar tones, in your opinion? Tones that really stand out as something special. I remember when I bought Zep IV. The opening song is Black Dog. That guitar sounded so powerful. I read somewhere that the guitar was plugged straight into the recording console...

    Musician interviews, documenaries...

    Hello all, I was wondering what musician focused documentaries or interviews you have found that are worth the time and energy to watch. I recently saw a Hendrix documentary but it was from a decidedly non musical perspective which didn't interest me at all. I couldn't care less what people...

    NUX Core Loop Deluxe

    Hi all, If you are like me you frequent more than one forum. I wanted to share my experiences for the sake of others as I had trouble finding useful information on this thing. So you may see versions of this post elsewhere. I just got one of these. It seemed the right tool for the job. I want...

    Essential pedals for Soul

    Hi All, Been invited to join a Soul band. I always liked the music but it hasn't really been my core. I am assembling my rig. Trying to decide between my Princeton Reverb 12" and Deluxe Reverb and figuring out what effect pedals I should have on my pedal board. I am trying to sound reasonably...

    Browan Lollar Tone

    Hi All, I love this guys guitar tone. I assume he is using an overdrive pedal. I saw a picture of his pedal board and all I saw was 2 stacked clean boosts. Would that work? Or is it really an OD pedal and if so, anybody know what pedal? Lots of YouTube videos of St Paul and the Broken Bones...

    Lap steel

    Hi all, I was thinking of getting a lep steel. The thing is it would be a side instrument for me and I want to get a decent instrument without overspending. I would appreciate some suggestions on how I should judge them or instruments to consider. Thank you

    Sophisticated blues

    Hi all, I've heard some players jamming great colorful and sophisticated solo lines over the blues. I would love to be able to play like that. So I tried finding recorded examples to study and have been coming up empty handed. I keep running into Jazz blues which isn't the same thing. If you...

    Another Princeton Reverb vs Deluxe Reverb thread...

    ... But the first for me. I never took the Princeton seriously. No way a baby amp like that could really bring the goods. I have a DRRI and like It. It is a fine amp, reliable, sounds good, etc.... Today I plugged into a Princeton Reverb with a 12" speaker. At first I just played clean...

    Is it just me or.... (Ultra vs Elite)

    ...were the Tele Elites a better guitar than the Ultras? Just took a first look. Maybe I'm off base but the Ultras look like a step backwards.

    Octafuzz alternative

    Hi all, I had a Fulltone Octafuzz and loved it. Unfortunately it didn't work with my power supply even with a polarity changer so I sold it. I would like to find an alternative that is sonically similar but uses a standard negative center pin power supply. Thanks in advance for your...

    Red Truck vs Cerberus

    Hi all, Thinking of getting a fly rig. I do a few flying gigs a year. I'm leaning towards the Red Truck but the demos of the Cerberus sound pretty nice. I was hoping to get some opinions and thoughts before buying since I can't demo them side by side. A couple observations: The Cerberus is...

    65 Deluxe Reverb vs 68 Vibrolux

    Supposing you could get either a 65 DRRI or one of the 68 silver face Custom Vibrolux Reverbs, same exact price. Which would you take and why? Interested in your personal opinions. Not meeting a specific need, just an amp junkie. If you have any thoughts on design or build quality I would like...

    Most influential...

    Hi everybody, I was thinking, there are all these "10 greatest guitarists..." lists on the internet. Which is silly at best. It dawned on me that a better list would be who were the most influential guitarists? Certainly Charlie Christian was hugely influential. But was Django Reinhardt? Of...
