!!HELP!! Hohner Bass Guitar !!HELP!!

I have been given a guitar and I dont know much about them, the only thing written on it is "Hohner Bass" & is made in Japan. It has a black body and I think a maple handle, and has four strings, I Jack plug socket and two turnable Knobs, Anyone have any idea? I can send photo if that helps at all. Thanks

Re: !!HELP!! Hohner Bass Guitar !!HELP!!

Sound like your basic bass. The 2 knobs are 1 volume and one tone most likely. What do you want to know? It is not a valuable bass.

Bass Guitar !!HELP!!

how do you tune your bass

Re: !!HELP!! Hohner Bass Guitar !!HELP!!

I've got a Hohner too. It sounds like you have a vintage model, much like me. Don't let these dickheads steer you wrong, Hohner makes a pretty good bass. My bass has a little problem with the knobs and jacks. Sometimes it seems to go out completely or get very quiet. Try wiggling the jacks and knobs. If this does not work, consider taking it to someone.

Is the BOSS MetalZone a good pedal?

I started out with a BOSS Metal Zone and I was wondering if I made the right choice on which distortion to get.I want a metal sound like most metal/hardcore bands today have.Did I make the right choice buying it?If not,if you could,suggest some other good distortion pedals I could buy to get the sound I want...Thanx

Re: Is the BOSS MetalZone a good pedal?

I use a blues driver with everything cranked when I want a lot of distortion, but I doubt it'd get distorted enough for you. It sounds fucking beautiful, though.

Re: Is the BOSS MetalZone a good pedal?

To my ears all of the Boss Distortion pedals have a raspy, non musical distortion. Personally, I prefer the Rat or a Electro Harmonix Big muff.
But really, it's your pedal and if it gets the sound you want, no one's opinion matters. If you're still unsatisfied, go try those two out and maybe an ibanez Turbo Tube Screamer.

Re: Is the BOSS MetalZone a good pedal?

I had an MT-2 pedal.I sold it and got an Ibanez Smash-Box.The MT's parametric E.Q. was a pain in the ass! I also have a Rat(very good),Danelectro Fab Tone(nasty)
and a Chandler Tube Driver(rack).Try a couple of boxes,distortions are all different.The Marshall JackHammer is kinda mean too.
Good Luck
P.S. I the Smash-box with a TS-10,to smooth out the tone.

Re: Is the BOSS MetalZone a good pedal?

: I have one ithink its pretty good but there are some new better ones like the new ibanez tone-lok smash box it sounds pretty sweet.... But you did get a good buy...

I have tried a bunch of distortion pedals. The one I found that gives me that hard crunching sound is the DOD Death Metal. With a few twists of the knobs it delivers a variety of distortions. Other than that, I run directly into the amp's distortion and crank it.

TELL ME ABOUT THESE PEDALS!

WIll someone please describe these pedals to me:
Envelope Filter, Phase Shifter, Octave, Flanger, Blues Driver,Erognous Moan Tape Simulator and the Electro Harmonix Bassballs...
I need to buy some pedals and devlop a sound. I just need to know what exactly they do. Thanks for the help!

Re: TELL ME ABOUT THESE PEDALS!

: Hey Justin: Here goes! I'll give you a song to listen to also to give an idea of the effect.
Bass Balls and Envelope filters are like automatic wah pedals. Listen to "Higher Ground" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That is an envelope filter on bass but it gives you an idea. Bwow-Bwow.
Flangers and Phasers are different flavors of a similar effect. A good phasing sound is "Nobody's Fault But Mine" By Led Zeppelin in the intro.
A good flanger would be "Lithium" or "Scentless Apprentice" by Nirvana. Or "Ain't No Right" by Jane's Addiction in the choruses.
The Octave pedals do two things: give you the fat lower octave sound like "Fool in The Rain"(Solo part)
by Zeppelin or High Octave Fuzz like Hendrix at the end of "Purple Haze". It synthesizes another note.
With a Whammy pedal, you can slide up and down octaves by rocking your foot. Rage uses this in "Killing in The Name". Most octave pedals only do one or the other, whammy does both plus harmonizing.
Overdrive, Blues Driver other distortions: You're simply going to have to check these out for yourself.
There are thousands of varaiations on the distortion theme, each that are good and many that really suck(no matter what MTV idiots they put in the ad.) Overdrives tend to push your amp harder(primarily a tube amp) and are more responsive to your playing. A Blues Driver or Tube Screamer will give you a musical, but not super raspy distortion plus some volume boost. Fuzz Boxes give Smashing Pumpkins style distortion, but also can give that misquito sound on "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones. A Rat or a Metal Zone will give you a more dry sounding, midrangey distortion.

The erogenous moan is a cool pedal meant to simulate a backwards guitar. This pedal provides a volume swell as you rock the pedal. It's tough get it to work, but it sounds good. Think "Are you expeienced" by Hendrix.
That sucking sound is the beautiful sound of analog tape turned over. The Guyatone Slow Volume does the same type of thing.

One more thing about about distortion. Many bands get their distortion from tube amps, not from pedals. Some get it from a combination of pedals/preamps and distortions. Sometimes tube amps respond better to having a hot input signal(guitar to pedals to amp)than a soild state amp. There's nothing wrong with soild state amps, and if you mess around with combinations of pedals, volume and EQ you should be able to come up with your own tone. Good luck man. it can be frustrating as hell. Because sometimes what sounds good by itself, stinks with a band and vice versa.
I hope this helps. Post other questions if you have 'em!

Re: TELL ME ABOUT THESE PEDALS!

hey, I can tell you what the following pedals do:
Envelope filter- it`s like an automatic wah-wah pedal/also called auto wah.Listen to limp Bizkits No sex on significant other thats what he uses in the first part of the song...

Flanger- gives like a jet plain sound that sounds really cool I have one... Ibanez Tone-lok

Blues driver- like a distorion but used in blues sometimes. It `s like if on a guitar amp put the gain all the way up and the volume distots itself...

EMG PICKUPS

HOW DO EMG PICKUPS RATE WITH ALL THE OTHER PICKUPS?

Re: EMG PICKUPS

Im not a fan of active stuff.But the EMG humbuckers are
extremly powerful and clear.EMG single coils...I gave them THE FINGER!!

Re: EMG PICKUPS

I lost my wireing diagram to add another 9v battery to my system.can you send me a new
diagram.Thank you connie g.

Re: EMG PICKUPS

: HOW DO EMG PICKUPS RATE WITH ALL THE OTHER PICKUPS?

I put EMG pickups in my American Strat 10 yrs. ago and I have never regretted it. The sound is awesome from crystal clear to down and dirty; tapping clarity is fantastic. Active pickups have advantages over passive. Of course, no pickup can overcome an amp that sucks.

Acoustic amp Advice

I'm thinking of buying an amp to use with my HD28.
Anybody have any suggestions? Also where's a great
place to get a deal? I've been looking at the
Fender Acoustasonic Jr. Any opinions on it or the
Carver AG100?

Re: Acoustic amp Advice

: I use an Acoustasonic Jr. with my Taylors, and , depending on the mics I use, I'm very happy with it. I have found that it's not all that great with maple bodied guitars when micked tho. I don't use a pickup as a rule, but I tried the amp using an old Lawerence one time and was suprised at the sound, not bad. Good luck in your search. Another thing that works if you have the room and the roadies to carry it all is a good Yamaha mixer with some "serious" speakers. Otherwise, the Jr. is probably just what you're looking for.

Re: Acoustic amp Advice

I had the Acoustasonic Jr, and was very happy with the sound, but found it did not have the stage volume for most gigs. I would get distortion when the volume got up to about 4 or 5.

Since then, I bought an SWR california Blonde, and have been reasonably happy with the performance. I'm playing a Gibson j-200 with a Highlander pickup. The amp sometimes sounds like it has a "stuffed up nose" if you can imagine what that might sound like. I think I'm going to have to go high-end or have something developed custom to ever be truly satisfied with an acoustic amp.

I've failed you. I'm sorry my dearest child.

Get off the computer and let the well behaved guitar players of this "Backstreet Boy" musical generation develop and trade ideas to which they will profit from everyday. You my son, love the attention to which everyone is giving you. Therefore, those guitar lessons I've payed for so dearly hav'nt done you any justice to your ego or your self motivation to continue in the musical field. I'm sorry Robert. Now go brush your teeth say your prayers, hop into bed, touch your little nob, and leave us guitar folk the hell alone. I love you sweetie.

its not my fault ma

its all coming back to me, i never thought that sleeping with my mother was wrong. it was only when i turned 18 that my friends told me there was somthing very strange about it,and all of those nights when you came in drunk and made me dress up as a sheep, well i thought nothing of it, so ma, its your fault. and thats why i finally realised that you are "CRAP"

Acoustic vs. Electric

Could someone please explain why it is better to learn on an acoustic rather than an electric? What would I miss by making my first guitar an electric (other than the extra money to buy an amp....)

Re: Acoustic vs. Electric

An accoustic will give you a more intimate feel for
the resonating natural sound. The electric will push
you to the level where power meets technique.
Bottom line: It's a matter of personnal taste.
Go with your gut and decide what's right for you.
God bless and happy picking.

painted my guitar and my daddy is pissed.

my daddy gave me his old electric guitar.he said it's
over 40 year old,it belong to his father,he said it's
a 59 gibson les caul,les paul something like that.
anyway he gave it to me on my birtday, I turn 14 last
week. I'm learning to play sugar,sugar by the archies,
only been playing for 3weeks. the guitar had these weird faded stripes in the wood and had this black to
golden yellow paintjob, I also notice it had no nicks
and scraches on it, I remenber he keep it in his
bedroom closet and never played it but would often
take the guitar out and polish it. He act liked
he loved the stupid guitar. I still don't know why?
a week later I decided to paint it, so I sanded it
and painted it pink and wrote sugar, sugar all over
it in yellow. I loved that song. It looked hot!
since I join an all girl rock band It should fit
the bill. A few days later the girl came over to
practice down stairs. We had a wonderful time.
we're playing sugar, sugar and my daddy came down
to listen. when he saw me playing he smiled and ask
me why Iam not playing the guitar he gave me. I told
him I was. He looked at my pride and joy then looked
at me. he look white as a ghost and then turn beet red. I said does'nt it look cool daddy! Then he started
to cry and ran up stairs. Mom and I don't know why
he's mad. It's just an old stupid guitar anyway.
pleases, could anybody tell me why he would be so
upset? He has'nt talk to me for days, I need help.

If you were my daughter you'd get the worst ass whuppin of your life! You have just pissed away many, many $$$$$$$$$. He could have bought you 20 "cool" guitars and had money left over! Heck, I saw a 54 fender that sold for $18,000!
Ypu better be beggin for forgiveness for the rest of your life. One day you'll be kickin your own self in the ass for what you have done.

Old Fart parent, (and my son knows he wouldn't see the light of day if he pulled something like that with "his" 85 Strat.)

Be thankful you are still alive, and REPENT!!!

Re: painted my guitar and my daddy is pissed.

Ummm I am thinkin this is a put on. But if you did paint that guitar I can totally understand why your dad is mad. That guitar was worth alot and I mean alot of money, but since you painted it. Your dad is probably really hurt to, that guitar was given by his dad, and he seemed to have taked care of it and then he passed it on to you, and he was probably very pleased that you learned to play it but was probably hoping that you would of treasured it and taken care of it as he did.

Re: painted my guitar and my daddy is pissed.

My first thought was you've got to be kidding!!!!!
My next thought was a 59 Les Paul being called a
stupid old guitar is like calling the Hope diamond
a stupid old rock or the Taj Mahal a dumb old building.
You have taken one of the most collectable electric
guitars on the planet, defaced it, reduced it's value
by heaven only knows how much. This is not only a
valuable collectable, it's a family heirloom. You're
cavalier attitude toward your father's feelings and
his desire to pass this beautifully maintained guitar
(by your own description) to someone he obviously
loved, tells me that you not only gave up your right
to the ownership of the guitar but that you should
probably give up guitar completely (including playing).
Learn a lesson from this and remember that a guitar is
much more valuable in it's original state, regardless
of the condition. Forgive me if I sound harsh but this
was a major 'boner'. We've all made dumb mistakes in
our teens but you pulled the 'Grand Prize' and lived to
tell about it. I would recommend that you go to your
father, tell him that you didn't realize the gravity of
your mistake, apologize, and ask if there is anyway you
could ever make it up to him.
I wish you the best but if recent history is any indication of you're future, your chances of reaching
fifteen are looking very dim.

Re: painted my guitar and my daddy is pissed.

Damn, i guess everybody told you how stupid you are, the only think i have to add is hang yourself with the E string, (the bigger one).

Re: painted my guitar and my daddy is pissed.

You've got to be joking, right? If you are, you've got a sick, sick sense of humor.
On the other hand, you'd better run for cover if you're serious. You'll be lucky if your father ever gives you anything again as long as you live! I would die for a Les Paul like that, and it sickens me to think that some kid got one for free in mint condition and completely ruined it. I would make an appointment tomorrow with my doctor for a CT scan, and X-RAYS of my head.
