    Tell me about the Music Man 112 RD 65.

    IRRC the RD was 6L6 with a transistor phase inverter, the early HD was EL34 with a valve phase inverter. They do sound different. The RD closer to a Roland JC120, The HD more like a good Twin or a HiWatt. Clapton, Knopfler, Albert used the HD's. If you check SRV at montreux 82 there is a hired...

    History of the 3-way / 5-way Strat switch?

    I believe hendrix would remove the spring. Billy Gibbons quote “Jimi took the three-way toggle switch into five-way,” Gibbons says. “He’s the one that discovered the in-between positions, and in order for that not to pop out of place, he showed me how to take off the back scratch plate and...

    You need to sand paper down your calluses for extra sensitive finger tips.

    Need opinions on warranty work

    One of my students had a similar thing happen on a non warranty guitar. Lazy work if you ask me. Seems like many poor repairers can't cut nuts or dress frets properly. They are not luthiers. My tech works on many high end vintage instruments and has a skill set to match. Imagine if this...

    Guitar Mill, Warmoth, MJT body preferences?

    Price and communication was the deciding factor for me. Dustin was more than helpful, hence my recommendation.

    Class-action Lawsuit against Fender

    Thought you were done. Fender UK violated the criminal law, but that is not "wrong" in your opinion. I see you still are incapable of spelling and grammar in a basic form. Let alone an understanding of the law. I see you are still ignorant of basic communication skills. If you want to shade me...

    The Lyrics and the Legend of ‘Loch Lomond’

    The Australian dialect is a blend of Irish Scottish and English. So I sort of get it all. Except the northern Irish.. that I struggle with it, in the south of Ireland I have no problems. These clips are great

    The Lyrics and the Legend of ‘Loch Lomond’

    Dad was from Gloucester. So I remember my Nan's neighbours playing Blue Beat and Ska records all day really loud. We came to Australia in the 70's. Funny we are the same age. I've come back a few times but the UK does not feel like home to me.

    The Lyrics and the Legend of ‘Loch Lomond’

    As a musician the song is about about the narrative, I'm more offended by cultural appropriation than a delivery of the song in a heartfelt way. That is the folk tradition. To hear a Texan tell me the story of ‘Loch Lomond’ is more interesting than a prefect recital from the score from the 1800's

    The Lyrics and the Legend of ‘Loch Lomond’

    I was born in Portsmouth. My dad was a submariner in the UK navy, so we moved a bit. I remember Edinburgh as very cold. We came to Australia as 10 pound poms.

    The Lyrics and the Legend of ‘Loch Lomond’

    Folk song. Is best not learnt from a written form. In 1841 I don't think the best version was performed by scribes. Imagine a transcribed version of Dark was the night Cold was the ground. Listen to your favourite artists perform the piece and interpret in your way. It is the aural form of...

    Calling all geeks now-- Modulation effects & how they work?

    The term chorus was used before the CE-1. It is also described the beat between two unison notes when out of tune like a 12 string guitar. Or the effect of multiple singers in unison. Leslies uses the doppler effect to fake this. Back to 1941. It was their attempt to recreate a pipe organ.

    Calling all geeks now-- Modulation effects & how they work?

    Chorus was the sound described by a Leslie speaker. (a sound of many voices) Flanging was touching the rim of a tape to make it run out of sync with a another tape machine. They can be recreated/approximated with time based and LFO circuits.

    Calling all geeks now-- Modulation effects & how they work?

    Roger Mayer is rumoured to have created a Leslie unit for Hendrix made from a organ unit. That developed into the virbratone. I'm not sure what the real story is. Hendrix used a univibe on live recording at a later stage. Woodstock and Band of Gypsys. Not on Little Wing, House Burning Down...
