i want to but a fender

i iam considering buying a mexican start its in perfict condishion but i carnt afford a usa start but what i want to no is that if the mex strats are allover good guitars.

Re: i want to but a fender

They are decent guitars, but of course it depends on the price and condition (and who you ask, some people just hate fenders and especially the mex ones), if it's perfect and you like the sound, feel and price... then go for it.

Re: i want to but a fender

Mexican strats tend to be brighter and sharper-sounding than US strats because of its poplar body, but whether that's a good or bad thing depends on your preference and repertoire. workmanship on mexican strats are quite good for their price range, and, well, it's a Strat! :) good luck with your purchase.

I HAVE A MEXICASTER,AND REALLY HAPPY WITH IT,I COMPARED IT TO A FEW "USA" STRATS
AND THE MEXI CAME OUT ON TOP.......(MY OPINION)

Using a violin BOW on an electric

If anyone has any techniques or special tunings they wish to share with this bow using beginner. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx

Re: Using a violin BOW on an electric

You may want to check out the original guy Jimmy Page who started using a bow. The modern Jimmy Page is Jeff Martin of The Tea Party and he does a wicked bow on an electric. Jimmy Page took a few lessons on Jeff's bow skills. Maybe email The Tea Party for a few tips form Jeff Martin himself. Keep that bow rosened up and experiment.

Jimmy Page not the first, of course

Of course, like most things Jimmy Page gets credit for, he stole it from someone else. (see the Small Faces 1966 album for the breakdown to "Whole Lotta Love" for an early example of the theivery that continued throught his career). Eddie Phillips of the Creation used the bow very extensively a few years before Page started doing it after seeing him.

Re: Jimmy Page not the first, of course

It's a technique that can be dated back to the renassaince.

Re: Using a violin BOW on an electric

But i am a loser!

Re: Using a violin BOW on an electric

If all else fails, save up money for an electric violin...no joke, there ARE electric violins. I wouldn't know what they are like though. That's cool though, playing a violin bow on a e-g. Tea Party did that :D. (I think they bow would get ruined after, though.)

Rosco / Roscoe Guitar Pickups?

I'm trying to find contact information for a company/guy [in Greensboro, NC me thinks] that makes SUPER-HOT output humbucker pickups under the name "Rosco." Anyone have any info or know what I'm talking about? The last set I heard was on a guitar in 1994 at a recording session...Best sound I've heard.

TIA

Re: Rosco / Roscoe Guitar Pickups?

You are talking about Roscoe Guitars. Keith Roscoe is the builder and does live in greensboro. In the 90's he made 6 string guitars that were incredible and now only makes bass guitars. They aren't cheap but they are amazing!!!

Re: Rosco / Roscoe Guitar Pickups?

yes they are .I have a six string bass and a seven string bass both of them are rosco and the sound are amazing

How do you "hammer" when you play the guitar?

U know th H's behween the number in the tabs...

Re: How do you

Also what do the p's mean?

Re: How do you

they are the pulloffs

h-hammeron
p-pulloff

Re: How do you "hammer" when you play the guitar?

These are Hammer-ons and pull-offs
It just means that rather than pick the note, you either hammer your finger to the fretboard at the # specified, or pulloff the previous note to the new fret # specified without picking.

Help with cascading effect pedals

Hello,

I have the following pedals. Can any1 help me with the order that i should connect them in ?

1. Boss graphic equalizer
2. DOD FX53 tube driver
3. boss OD-3 turbo overdrive
4. Boss distortion
5. Boss Chorus Ensemble
6. Ibanez Compressor sustainer
7. Boss RV-3 Reverb/Delay

Thanks
Mahim

Re: Help with cascading effect pedals

1- Filter effects (such as wah or phaser)
2- Compressor
3- Distortion and overdrive pedals
4- Equalizers
5- Pitch effects
6- Modulation effects (such as chorus or flanger)
7- Echo effects (delays and reverbs)

In the end it's up to you. Each guitar player as his own effect sequence. Just make sure u place delays and reverbs last.

Re: Help with cascading effect pedals

Why does delay have to be the last pedal to put in your setup? I currently have:
1.Boss Digital Delay DD-6
2.Dunlop Crybaby Wah
3.Boss Tremelo
4.Electro-Harmonix Small Stone
5.Digitech Whammy 4
The reason why I ask is because when I put my Delay at the end and try to produce an echo of a signal while using any of the other effects, the delayed signal only comes back clean. In order to get it to work I have to put my delay first. Whats the deal?

Flyod Rose locks

I just bought a squier stagemaster withe those floyd rose locks. It won't tune right. I'll tune it and lock it but the it's out of tune. Then i'll re-tune it and five minutes later it's all messed up and low.
I need to know how to work this thing.

Re: Flyod Rose locks

I bought the same guitar.I had the same problem. The licensed parts that come with that guitar aren't made to do the job. You will need to get some real Floyd Rose parts. Don't order the new parts from Carvin, they will send you the wrong parts and not give you time to install them and return them. You will need to know this: the fretboard radius is 9.5"(241mm), the scale length is 25.5"(648mm) and the nut width is 1.65"(42 mm). You need to get the parts matching those specs. And remember, don't let anyone tell you anything else tell you that any minor differences from those specs will not make any difference. Because it makes a huge difference when you get bad parts on your guitar. Also do not order any from the Steward & MacDonald catalog. EVER!!! They will sell you phony parts that they advertise as real parts and they will rip you off!! Same goes for Carvin.

Re: Flyod Rose locks

Heres a good link about setting up a FR:

I have several guitars w/FR trems, and they can be frustrating at first, but after awhile you will get the hang of it... patience is a virtue here.

I'm looking for a Pantera/Slayer sound, something that sounds really heavy, but I could still solo with. I'm currently using a boss heavy metal distortion pedal with a Gibson Gothic Les Paul threw a Peavy Trans-Tube. Any good suggestion on how to set my distortion pedal.

Re: I'm looking for a Pantera/Slayer sound, something that sounds really heavy, but I could still so

The biggest problem in that setup, is the pedal. You (hard as you might try), are never going to get anything but flabby bottom crap out of that pedal. I don't want to recomend a metal zone, but even that would be better.

Re: I'm looking for a Pantera/Slayer sound, something that sounds really heavy, but I could still so

Check out guitargeek.com. Find D. Darell from Pantera.
You need A LOT of money for really good heavy sound.

Info on Randall RH200

If anyone out there has or has tried out the Randall
RH200 head, I could use some info. I looked
up some reviews and found just about everything I want
to know except a couple things--how it sounds at loud
volumes on each channel. Do any of the channels break
up or get muddy? Are any of the channels noisy or give
a lot of feedback when not playing? Also, how is the
sustain on the gain channels? I play mostly grind-core
and I need good sustain and a quiet amp since I do a
lot of stops. Thanks for the help.
