Re: So, I uh, might have done something kind of stupid..

Palmer, Radial and Morley eliminators might be worth looking into.

I find pretty much any hum-cancelling solution to attenuate high end a bit, it's why I think dummy coil pickups are useless (they just make all the best single-coil designs sound that much more humbuckery to my ears).

Re: New Behringer synths

“Inspired by Behringer”: CME’s SWIDI is a Bluetooth MIDI keyboard and step sequencer that looks very familiar We’re used to seeing Behringer taking inspiration from other manufacturers, but other manufacturers taking inspiration from Behringer? That’s not something you hear about so often. Roland l...

Re: So, I uh, might have done something kind of stupid..

Most amps sound like crap unless they're running through a Marshall cab.

Never got complaints from housemates or neighbors until I started using a Vibro Champ in the house. A 100-watt head through a 1960A 4x12 has a way more focused/less abrasive sound, regardless of SPL.

Re: Epiphone Valve Jnr repair

DeoxIT D5 (specifically D5S-6) should be fine to use on pots. DeoxIT seem to think so, though some guys on guitar forums sometimes say it's still bad. It's a lubricating contact cleaner; most aren't and that tends to be the problem with using them on pots as they will dry out any grease or lube in t...

Re: New Behringer synths

Their VCS3 could end up being made of tinfoil and Twix bars and I’ll still be selling off all my little synth module toys to buy one.

Re: Boss RE-2 Space Echo (and RE-202!)

Hope they do a CE-1 in that 202 style case, but then I suppose that’d be $400 as well.

yeah, I'm calling shenanigans on this It’s been in a lot of those history of Fender books and posted around forums like this for like 20 years.

Martin Jenner died in 2003 and isn’t behind this petition. Whoever started it does not appear to be aware of this and has even mentioned, without a shred of irony, that they’ve gotten Courtney Love’s permission to start the petition (Courtney sold about half of her inherited stake in Cobain/Nirvana ...

lol @ “Kurt wasn’t responsible for the modifications,” like we thought it was him who dropped double DiMarzio metalbuckerz in it. Kurt may have bought the guitar directly from Jenner, as he responded to a “ask for Marty” classified ad for it out of the LA Recycler. Anyway, I don’t think it should sa...

Re: A plug: Timbre!

This is all Eric Johnson’s fault. Dude thought his Fuzz Face sounded better without the baseplate screws and that certain pedals have to be cocked at a 45-degree angle and elevated an inch above his board on a block of wood, etc... don’t know if he ever cited a specific benefit to this, just that it...

The MASSIVE picture that Kim posted above, it looks like there are two output plates on the side. What's going on there? I think it's actually a powered line out. I don't know exactly how their wiring or controls work but I do know that those Wal pickups have a separate coil pair for each string. I...
