Re: DEAR guitar

3rd String sound

Why does the 3rd from bottom or D string sound so "flat,buzzed?" on most electric guitars when it's not plugged into an amp. It's kind of hard to explain the sound.

Crate VC-508 tube amp ... anyone know a website that has a schematic?

If anyone can steer me towards a site that has a schematic of the Crate VC-508 5 watt tube amp, I would be much obliged. I want to see how they interface the solid-state part with the tubes. I'd like to add a "built-in" tube screamer circuit to my own EL84 home-built amp. Thanks for any help.

Re: Crate VC-508 tube amp ... anyone know a website that has a schematic?

try Crate.com, I've ordered schematics for their amps there before. Prices are reasonable.

Re: Crate VC-508 tube amp ... anyone know a website that has a schematic?

I have one. I got it from Crate, N/C. You're welcome to a copy of it if you'd like.

Re: multieffects

: Is there any multieffects with brian may (queen) sound-like and some classic rock sounds?what about zoom 505II? HELP GT3, probably GT5 more recently the GT6 have a killer Harmonizer that would probably get pretty darn close to Brian May sound. I own GT 3(Roland) prices have come down because GT 6 is out.

POD 2.0 live - amp simulations and sound clarity

Is there a good way of getting the amp/cabinet simulations on a POD 2.0 in a live situation? Also,the sound I get is not very clear if I am playing with another guitarist. It was much clearer when I use to play with just one pedal. With the POD my sound is not cutting through well at all.

:you can buy stuff from music shops you should usually use a guitar cleaning spray and clean cloth

Re: how and what to CLEAN an old guitar with??

you can clean your guitars with "Lemon Oil" / "Carnuba Wax".; most guitar stores carry cleaners made from these ingredients.I've been using lemon oil on my Martin D28 for 12 years and couldn't be happier with the results.I also recommend GHS "Fast Fret" for string cleaning.

Re: how and what to CLEAN an old guitar with??

: I have an old "grestch" and a "les paul" how should I clean or wipe them off with out changing or destroying the sound????

I use this stuff caled "Fiddlebrite". It cleans and polishes the wood. It's excellent on the
fretboard. gets all the finger jelly off and cleans the strings and makes them last longer.
I used to use Fast Fret untill I found this stuff. Comes in a 2OZ bottle for three bucks.

Re: I B A N E Z

framus diablo custom is the best shredding guitar ever made, fairly unheard of tho. http://www.framus.com/diablocustom.htm

Re: I B A N E Z

Both guitarts are great. But I'll tell what I like and don't like about each. The JEM's have the prefered neck for me (flat & fast). But the JEM555 has the "Lo TRS II" bridge. This bridge has a wide spread flaw, the tremelo arm has a nut that screws onto the bridge, the threads on this nut usually always get striped, this makes it difficult to get the arm on or off (if at all). The best fix for this problem is to replace the bridge with the LO TRS(original - $250.00). You can not put the "Lo Pro Edge" on the JEM555. The JS1000 has the "Lo Pro Edge" tremelo which is a much better bridge. But the JS1000 has only two humbucker pickups. The dual humbuckers may be just fine for your taste but I prefer the H-S-H pickup configuration that the JEM's have because you can get a more variety of sounds (tones).
