    Aluminum pickguard muffling neck pickup?

    It sounds silly. And after a few searches it seems that others in the past have reported that this is nonsense. But that's definitely what I'm hearing! A few months ago I put together a new to me partscaster and since the body was slightly off from fender spec, I ended up making my own...

    94 MIJ Standard P Bass body thickness?

    Yesterday I received the new to me p bass I purchased online last week. I was able to spend about 3 hours playing it with some friends last night and like it pretty well. It kind of has this cool LPB finish that's a little yellowed causing it to be on the greenish side in certain lighting. I...

    Big Muff volume spike when powered by a battery?

    This is a NYC big muff pi. The big one. I've had this pedal for years and I've always only powered it with a cord. I couldn't find my adapter the other day so I decided to power it with a brand new battery. I was pleasantly surprised as the pedal sounded quite different this way. It was...

    Bass Cab Question

    I am a guitar player who has an inexpensive bass at home for just in case a random jam may break out. I don't have a bass amp but amp considering getting a cheap head. My question is about the cab. I have a closed back 212 GUITAR cab that I rarely use. If I put a pair of bass woofers in this...

    Hss wiring options

    I have a parts strat that I recently converted to hss configuration. When switching to the humbucker (bridge) the tone seems to sound muffled. I have 1 master volume and 1 master tone. Both 250k. I'd like to wire the humbucker to only the volume to bypass the tone pot, so that the humbucker...

    OD 250 kit?

    Well, it happened. My stupid deal of the day OD250 was too stupid to be true. It has been inconsistently working and I'm afraid it will leave me stranded during a gig. I seem to recall others having similar problems. I got a few good months out of it, and I do have a backup for now. It...

    PRRI 12 inch conversion

    I've finally gotten around to installing the 12 inch baffle I bought a couple months ago for my 65 princeton reissue. After I got the new baffle screwed down and go to set the speaker in place, I realized that the lower mounting block (whatever it's called... the 1x1 strip that the baffle...

    Mooer Tender Octaver

    While jamming with some friends last night, my buddy got out his new "tender octaver" from Mooer. He didn't play it himself, he just handed it to me to try. I've had zero experience with octave type pedals, but this thing blew my mind! Huge sounds and nails some organ tones on the extreme end...

    OD or Distortion to stack with OD250?

    The title says it all. I'm using my DOD OD250 for light overdrive and would like to find an OD or distortion that I could kick on once in while for a "next level" dirt sound for solos or songs and require big sounding power chords. I've tried a tube screamer type and also a DS-1 so far and...

    NPD- DOD OD250

    Just received my new DOD OD250 yesterday evening! Got the $39.99 April fools deal from guitar center. So far I've only spent about 30 minutes trying it out and I was playing it through my 69 bassman. I had the pedal running into a FRV-1 reverb and then into the amp with the channels jumpered...

    NAD-'65 DRRI

    Over the holidays I found a killer deal on a 2015 new/unopened '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue. I wasn't even in the market for one of these but the price was too good to pass up, so I took the chance to buy and try it without losing money if I decide to sell it on. It got delivered Monday so I've...

    69 bassman crackle

    My bassman makes a sizzling crackling in the background type sound as low notes ring out. It will do this for 10 or 15 mins after startup then mostly subsides. It is recapped. I replaced all the tubes. And I cleaned all pots inputs and switches with contact cleaner. I've also (carefully and...

    Musicmaster Bass Amp.. Would you?

    I came across one of these little guys yesterday afternoon. It is an early 70's version, one owner, and is the model with 6V6s. The seller is asking $250 and is firm on the price. I was quite excited at that price so I arranged to demo the amp. Here's the deal, it's got a little hum on warm...

    Cannabis Rex Paired with Jensen C12N? (silverface Bassman)

    I'm currently playing a 69 drip edge bassman into a 2x12 cab that is loaded with 2 16 ohm alnicos from an old organ. It sounds pretty good to me and I've had compliments on my tone, but I'd like to match the impedance of the bassman (4 ohm). I already have the Jensen C12N, that I'm going to...

    Blues Jr Horrible Noises after warmup

    I have one of the mim limited edition tweed blues Jr's. One day at rehearsal about a month ago I noticed the sound start to fade in and out which made me suspect bad power tubes. I had a new set to swap out but no luck. Same problem. I also tried the preamp tubes but no luck. I did a visual...

    51 Nocasters in my MIM standard help

    A couple days ago I installed a Fender Pat Pending ashtray bridge plate, brass 3 saddle bridge, and a set of 51 nocaster pickups in my new MIM standard. Playing through a Hot Rod Deville amp. First off I grounded both pickups to the tone pot since that is where the stock pickups were grounded...
