zoom effects

i wanted to know the differences between model numbers such as 505, 5052 and so fourth. im looking to buy one

Re: zoom effects

I suggest instead of getting a 505 you get a TONE WORKS
AX1G it has more effects (including the best WAH WAH pedal i have ever used) and is quieter. Musician freind usualy has them for 99 bucks I think. I just finished a CD that i used my AX1G on a few tunes,. handy tool, and it sounds good in headphones too

7 strings guitar history

Hi,
I would like to know when the 7 strings guitar was invented. also I would like to know who invented it.
Thanks a bunch.

Re: 7 strings guitar history

im not 100% on this but i think Ibanez was the first company to introduce or atleast sell 7 strings,im actualy trying to find out myself, Its just that ive been in an underground band now for a few years,and ive met alot of seven string players(i happen to be one myself) and almost all the 7 strings ive seen were made by Ibanez

Bass wanted.

I would like to purchase an Aria Pro II Cardinal Series bass. Please email jsu55@bellsouth.net if you have one you would like to sell. Please note, I am interested only in this particular model of bass, please don't innundate me with "great deals on Fender", etc. Thanks very much!

-Jim

Re: Bass wanted.

Hmm.I'll stick my two cents in.The Ibanez EBD 600(four string)is a THUMBER'S DELIGHT! I almost bought one.

GIVE ME TIPS ON HEAVIEST DISTORTIONS From a GT 3

I've owned a Boss GT3 for about six months now and after shite loads of playing about I've managed to set my 2 main stage worthy distortions with a reasonable amount of success.But like everyone I'm sure it could sound that little bit better if i just knew HOW!At present Im using the Pre-Amp sims to get the gain because the dist/OD sounds are Way to "DI" and lifeless.I use the Peavy 5150 setting with the mic position at 2cms with the following amp sim settings:-
Vol-20,Bass-50,Mid-14,Treble-58,prescence-43,master-65 & Gain-HIGH. Then I use the EQ next door and set up a Varying scoop of the mids. At first I tried it with the noise suppressor set very active (threshHold-55,Release-3) but i found this to fight off most of the depth of the sound making it more 'mechanised'.The sounds i am after are those found in music from the likes of Heavy 'Harcore' bands such as Silent green and Stampin'Ground.I Play an Epiphone LesPaul Standand with a Semour Duncan 'Duncan Custom' upgrade in the bridge position.My amp is a Marshal JCM2000 DSL 100 with a jcm 900 4x12 cab.Im plugging the gt3 straight into the return socket at the back, therefore bypassing the marshal pre-amp....CAN ANYONE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME BY GIVING ANY SUGGESTIONS AS TO HOW TO SET THE EQ UP,OR OF ANY NEW OR ALTERNATIVE WAYS YOU KNOW OF TO GET THE HEAVIEST SOUND!!!:) So go on...enthraul me with your know-how!!! xxxmany thanx Kelv. Portsmouth.

Re: GIVE ME TIPS ON HEAVIEST DISTORTIONS From a GT 3

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but.... You have a world class twin-channel rock & roll valve amp there, and a guitar fitted with an excellent hot pickup. If I were you I would ditch the GT3 and experiment with just the guitar and the Marshall. I am sure the sounds you are after are in there. And you've got two channels for your rhythm/lead sounds. Once you have got your basic guitar/amp tone you can always add a stomp box or two for delay or chorus or whatever. But make the effects the icing on the guitar/amp cake. I have recently reverted to just using my Gibson and Marshall after a few years of plugging a multi effects unit in between. I'd forgotten how good simplicity sounds! It's a liberating experience, and there's less to trip over when you're gigging! Best Wishes.

White socks rule!

I'm thinking about getting a new amp.My small band wants to start playing bars and parties so we gotta sound good. Do think I should get a Marshall amp? We play Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, the beatles, Nirvana and classic rock kind of songs.How big should my amp be anyway?I'm a jobless 16 year old so I can't just buy anything.

Re: White socks rule!

Mesa boogie or Soldano!!!!!!!!! Nuff said...Buy it once spend the cash and have it forever!!!!

what size allen wrench fits the bridge area of a strat.

i lost the little wrench for my strat and need to know what size i should get.

FENDER PROSONIC AMP

Hi, im in a hard rock/metal band and am looking for a new amp. I was thinking about the fender prosonic, i know it sounds wierd for my music but i really prefere fender cleans etc. I want some input and advice about this amp and any other help. Thanx alot and i really appreciate your input.

ps. i hear these baby's are discontinued, can i still find one?

Re: FENDER PROSONIC AMP

I just got one a few days ago...

It doesn't have typical fender cleans at all. It DOES have massive amounts of gain and distortion tones to die for. The cleans are full and rich, not squeaky clean. If you're looking for classic Fender cleans, you won't get it from a Prosonic. It's still good though, very smooth and involving. Sorta like a cross between a Bassman and a Vox, dark and buttery. You can dial in lots of sparkle, but then the gain will sound really harsh and trebly. They share EQ so you have to compromise.

The drive channel can do anything from mild crunch up to (and beyond) the highest of high gain. Seething gobs of gain, it's almost crazy. It's not very tight in the low end, but it has a nice blooming attack and is really easy to play and sustains for days.

They're discontinued but can be found for $600 or less if you look around.

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

The originals would be Utah's. A better replacement would be the Jensen C12 N.

Re: Fender Twin Reverb

: The originals would be Utah's. A better replacement would be the Jensen C12 N.
I am a good friend of Brent's and he use's vintage 30's in his twin but keep in mind that his is a blackface.Forget the utah's,the jensen c12n sounds good just run them through your home stereo before you install to "open them up"

Searching for the ultimate tone

I have a black face super reverb. It was put out by CBS. I think it's a 1st or 2nd year CBS. The Scheme is the same as the pre CBS. I am considering purchasing a custom shop Combo. Does anyone know which is the best for a good deal of stage volume with that beautiful fender pwr. amp distortion. I want to be able to turn my tele volume down for a beautiful clean sound, then for screaming distortion, turn the guitar up. (NO pedals or weenie master volume knobs) The fewer knobs the better! I would be interested in a Mod if I could achieve this goal but I think I need more power. A Super is only 50 watts. I would also trade my amp for an early twin or custom shop combo. My amp was bought from the Mastering Lab at A and M studios in Hollywood. Alan Yoshida can verify that. I just really need more wattage with basically the same tone.

Re: Searching for the ultimate tone

You are looking at the wrong brand, i looked for an amp for years that had a great violin like sustain on the dirty channel and a warm clean sound that was real extreme in it;s frequency range. I had a 1963 fender bassman tiltback, that was ok. i waled innto a used guitar store and started playing through a CRATe tube amp that has a cream colored tolex. I traded the Fender straight up for it. Crate tube amps are GREAT, I think mine is called a VINTAGE TUBE. i cang et sounds ranging from the old KUSTOM sound to a Marshall stack. I is a TUBE amp, not a hybrid or solid state

Re: Searching for the ultimate tone

Kurt,

I have a 65 super reverb re-issue, and I really like it alot. I used to have a twin reverb, but it was just too harsh for me. Pretty much, all blackface-era amps have similar circuitry, just different speaker and power arrangements. A twin has a similar tone to the super, but I prefer the super. Right now i am a/b 'ing into my super and also a jcm2000, but I hope to get some type of eric johnson setup going (he uses two deluxes, and two marshall 50 watt dual super leads). You should check out a vibro-king from fender custom shop and see what you think.

good luck
andrew

mods

Who is the best at modifying an old fender to give it more versitility. I would love my Super reverb to have a hint of that tight Matchless amp distortion. ( NO master volume) If any one has experience (positive) on Fender Mods, Please e-mail me at krmoss@hotmail. I would be very grateful!

Action on strat

my brother just got a new strat(mexican) and it turns out that he liked my neck and i liked his so we switched. When i put the new neck on my guitar it buzzed like crazy so i raised the saddles. That work pretty good but the buzz was still there. so i turned the truss rod more concave and the buzz is gone, but it plays out of tune very noticeably i was wondering if there is anything i can do to get it to play in tune and not buzz.

Re: Action on strat

The Neck on a guitar should really only be changed on a brand new guitar that has never been strung, in my experiance. As the neck adjusts to the stringtension and is handled it becomes mated to the rest of the guitar. If you are having an action problem, the smartest thing to do would probably be best to just switch the necks back. Just my opinion, take it for whatever, if anything, it might be worth.

You will need to set the "intonation". NT

A GOOD HARD ROCK/METAL AMP

Hi, im looking for a new amp for hard rock and metal playing. I prefer a head and cab. I play in a band and my other guitarist has a marshall tsl100 head and cab. i was looking at the marshall 1959 SLP, fender twin, Fender HOt Rod deville (i know, i like the clean sounds though), line 6 Flextone II, or a mesa boogie (either a rectifier or heartbreaker-used of course), also i was looking at the Fender Prosonic which i hear is great. IF any one has any info or advice, or any new amps, it would be greatly appreciated. THanx
