    Anyone ever have to relocate a TOM bridge?

    I bought a new Heritage H150 over the summer. At first I thought all was well until I changed the strings. I had to top wrap the strings over the tailpiece because they were hitting the TOM bridge behind the saddles. That’s no big deal. The problems started when tried to intonate the bridge...

    Collecting guitars for fun. Thoughts?

    I enjoy collecting guitars. I don’t buy vintage stuff, but rather guitars I like. I think it’s fun. I’m not putting myself if debt, and I don’t buy anything unless I have the money for it However, I’m not a professional musician. I never play anything bigger than a bar gig. Sometimes I wonder...

    Recommended lights for Skype/Zoom/etc?

    Hi all. So my computer is in a room with absolutely terrible lighting. I need some better illumination so I don’t look like a dark blob when using Skype or Zoom. Do any of you guys have any recommendations for a reasonably priced, compact light that I can put on or near my desk to improve my...

    Axe-Fx III and Apollo Twin for Guitar Lessons

    Hi all. I'd like to try to take some online guitar lessons via Skype, but I need to get my setup working first. I recently just switched to Mac and got an Apollo Twin X interface. I have the AxeFx III running into the SPDIF input of the Apollo and a mic also going into channel 1 of the Apollo...

    Recommended SPDIF to optical converter to connect AxeFx III to Apollo?

    Hi all. I know a lot of you use Apollo interfaces. Do you have a recommended SPDIF to optical converter that you use? Do you notice any lag that is introduced by the converter? Thanks so much!

    Anyone with Presonus Quantum 2626 experience?

    I just picked up a Presonus Quantum 2626. I thought it would be a decent choice since I use Studio One 4 and the Quantum series interfaces are known for very low latency. I can't get the thing to work. It comes with Universal Control software which has meters for inputs and outputs. I can see...

    Anyone ever swap pickup magnets?

    I have Classic 57 pickups in my Les Paul. I like the sound of my bridge pickup, but the neck pickup sounds pretty wooly, especially on lower notes, even with a very low pickup height. I could get a new neck pickup, but then I would have to replace all the electronics as well since my Les Paul...

    Got a Tumnus Deluxe

    I’ve been curious about K-type pedals for a while, considering all the hype. So I picked up a Wampler Tumnus Deluxe. I have to say that I’m quite impressed. It’s a great pedal. It imparts some liveliness to my tone that I really enjoy, even with minimal gain. I’ve been running it in front of...

    Silent Lucidity and Hellraiser II

    I’m catching up on horror movies that I’ve never seen. Currently watching Hellraiser II and I recognized a line from Queensryche’s Silent Lucidity. The lines you hear “help me” and “how is that, better?” in the song are from Hellraiser II. How did I not know this? And why did Queensryche...

    FAS Reverby questions before I buy

    Hi all. I'm on the fence regarding purchasing the FAS reverb plugin. I have a couple questions before I buy: 1) Does it sound as good as the reverb in the AxeFX II? I hope so. So many reverb plugins sound too gritty and digital to me. 2) How processor intensive is it? Does it eat up a lot of...

    I messed up my firmware update...

    So I just did something royally stupid. I was updating my AxeFx II to Quantum 2.0 and I wasn't paying close attention (my mind is tired). I accidentally shut down my AxeFx II as it was updating, and now it won't boot at all. I guess I'll be contacting support tomorrow. Just wanted to make sure...

    Please teach me about fender amps!

    Prior to buying the AxeFx years ago, I was always a Marshall (or similar) kind of guy. I played heads through 4x12 closed back cabinets. That's what my ear is attuned to. Because of this, Fender amps seem alien to me. I don't get them. I don't know how to dial them to get what many would...

    VoiceLive experiences, anyone?

    Hi all! I was wondering if anyone here has use the TC Helicon VoiceLive before. It seems like an awesome way to do a one-man-band kind of gig. It can play backing tracks, provide backing vocal harmonies, do MIDI changes, etc. I think it would be awesome to set it up so that it would...

    So I just discovered Agile guitars...

    Agile guitars look rather interesting. The prices are phenomenal. Yeah, I know they're made in Korea. But it seems like the vast majority of people that have an Agile have great things to say about them. I would like a Les Paul, but I'm not giving a dime of my money to Gibson. And I also...

    Mexican Fender Standard Telecaster - opinions?

    I was thinking about picking up a Fender Standard Telecaster, the one made in Mexico (not the Squier ones). I've always wanted a Tele. Anyone have any opinions on these guitars? I realize they're not quite as nice as the American version. Chances are I'll upgrade the hardware and...

    Just ordered Fishman Fluence Pickups!

    So I just ordered a set of Fishman Fluence pickups for my Carvin Bolt (strat copy). Sigler Music has a great deal in which they mount the pickups into a pickguard and wire them up for you for essentially the cost of the pickups. Not a bad deal! All you have to do is connect the output jack in...

    AxeFx won't cure my GAS problem

    So you would think that having incredible amp and cabinet models in the AxeFx would fix my GAS for amps, right? Hell no. The Splawn Quickrod models are sweet, so now I want to buy a Quickrod. The Blankenship model sounds incredible, so now I want an 18 watt Marshall. This is completely...

    Hiwatt model (Hipower)...why didn't I try this before?

    Good god the Hiwatt models are amazing. Why didn't I try them years ago? Why don't we ever talk about these models? Turn up the master and drive all the way. Pair it with the Starfinder mix from TAF if you have that IR. Amazing. Amazing upper mid range detail. Love it!

    QSC K10 sticky...where did it go?

    Wasn't there a sticky regarding Jay Mitchell's recommendations about getting the most out of the K10? I remember he had some eq recommendations, plus something about reversing the phase of the tweeter. Does anyone have a copy of the text from the sticky? Where did it go? Thanks!

    Advice for solos in an acoustic set

    Hi all. I'm hoping to draw on the collected experience here for some advice. So I recently starting playing with a phenomenal singer who plays for another band. She does a bunch of shows, and I'm kind of her backup guitarist for when the band can't play a show. So when we play, it's just me...

    Equator D5 - Wow!

    So I just got a pair of Equator D5 monitors to replace my first generation KRK Rokit 5's. Wow, what a dramatic difference! With the D5's the mids are so much cleaner, upper mids aren't as harsh, lows are much more refined and not muddy (when compared to the Rockit 5's). My Axe II sounds...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I'm thankful that there is such an incredible piece of gear, known as the Axe Fx II, that allows me the options and incredible flexibility to create the tones that I hear in my head, thus heightening my musical expression. And I know that Cliff and the rest of Fractal work their butts off to...

    Finally getting an Axe II!

    I got my "I'm at the top waiting" list e-mail a couple weeks ago, and it has been ridiculously hard not to just go ahead and order the Axe Fx II. I have a day off this week and hopefully timing will work out so that it will be delivered then and I can sign for it. So I'm a former Ultra owner...
