Boss hr-2 questions

Hey,

I just bought a Boss Hr-2 harmonist (used), and it didn't come with a manual.

I can't seem to get it to work correctly. When I put it in the key of g and put both dials on +3, I play a g-note and expect to hear a B note on top of it, but instead I hear a Bb. In fact, when I play any note in the key of G, it always plays a minor third above.

However, when I plug in the detector input, it plays the right notes on top, but I can't get any volume out of doing it that way.

Does anyone know anything about this pedal!?!

Email me or post here - I would appreciate any assistance.

Many thanks!

Re: Boss hr-2 questions

Hi there

Just read your post regarding the Boss pedal. Like you I have just purchased a HR2 second hand with no manual. Did you ever find out the answer to your question with regard to the harmonies in G ?

Yamaha 12 string acoustic

I have an opportunity to buy a Yamaha 12 string acoustic guitar for my son, who has wanted a 12 string for a long time. $175 is the price, it this worth it for a reasonably well taken care of Yamaha?

Re: Yamaha 12 string acoustic

Yamaha is a pretty decent brand, but there are too many variables when it comes to guitars to say whether or not it is worth the price. Have your son try it out--if he likes the way it sounds and plays, then see what you can negotiate. Your son should also try out other guitars in that price range to get a sense of what sounds and feels good to him. Sometimes a change of strings can make all the difference in the way a guitar sounds and plays. Maybe you could try a google search and see what that Yamaha model sells for. Good luck!

Yamaha 12 strings

I have an FG-312, purchased new in 1978, and it has been kept in its hardshell case, finish stays near perfect. The design is the classical "gunboat": heavy, fairly loud, probably best for flatpicking or fingerpicks. The neck is thick and traditionally "C"-shaped, and the action can't get much better than low-to-medium. The tuning stability is fairly good (high G-string goes low with aggressive picking,of course). I seldom play it anymore, as I lucked into a much more playable instrument for my fingerstyle preferences.

Overall, a hearty, fairly good Box with a decent sound, but anyone who takes up a traditional 12 should be ready for thumb muscle cramps, growing significant fingertip callouses, and keeping an ear to the tuning harmonics. This is NOT your friendly 6-string! I've travelled several times by air with it, including very Tropical South India, and it made it through slendidly!

The $175.00 price is about what they were when new back in the 70's.

How much are they worth?

I have a Fender Telecastor #289677 and a Hagstrom #667930. I have no idea how much they are worth or what year they are.

Re: How much are they worth?

Sounds like a '69 or '70 tele and I don't have exact prices. Depends on condition too. Anywhere from $1500 to $3000. Pretty good resale really. On the Hagstrom, don't know even an approximate date on that so I'll have to bow out on that. I think you'll find that there are some hardcore devotees that really like Hagstrom amps (I'm not one of them) that will be willing to pay a premium - again, depending on condition.

- Simply strum it with the rythem. The best way to play is to strum the

Laney LC 15R

Can anyone help me locate a owners manual for this superb little amp of mine?
I have tried the Laney web site, but no joy!
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi. I didn't get a manual with my LC-15 either. It's a very basic amp. What do you want to know about it? Maybe I can answer a question you have about it.

fret markers (inlays)

I was just wondering if anyone knows why there are fret markers on the 3rd,5th,7th,9th,12th etc...? Is there a specific reason for this? I am a guitar teacher and have been playing a pretty decent amount of time and when i asked my teacher about it, he didn't know either.If someone can drop me a line at my email address w/ the answer it would be much appreciated. Kind of a silly question i know but everyone i ask doesnt seem to know either.

Re: fret markers (inlays)

Just for visual/learning indicators, it's just the most logical way to represent w/h steps and was based on the E strings is what I've always been told, I've heard other reasons (theory) but they are just general and don't hold up in all cases so no reason to belive one over the other... some guitars have one on the 1st, most acoustics start on the 5th (in the first position you don't need a 3rd for 'reference' cuz your fingers are (at the least) already covering frets 1-4, some have none or just a 12th.

Re: fret markers (inlays)

The answer is that the guitar favors the key of E minor. The natural state of E minor is E phrygian. The fret markers on a guitar mark the roots of the seven modes of E phrygian. E F G A B C D. However, this would create some clutter at the half steps. As a general rule you don't want to lay two fret markers in a row. This is because a fret marker locates three frets;the marked fret, the previous fret, and the next fret. So instead of marking C, we mark C# which locates C, C#, and D. A similar problem occurs at F midway down the guitar neck. In this case the solution is to mark E which locates D# and F and omit a fret marker at F.

guitar makin

i want to make a guitar but i need to know prices and equipment

Re: guitar makin

Prices: varied
Equipment: lots

: i want to make a guitar but i need to know prices and equipment

Re: guitar makin

Hmm, a real glutton for punishment I see. Most folks would tell you to forget about it, but I say go for it. If I had listened to them, I wouldn't have been doing this for 10 years now. It will cost a fortune though, especially if you don't have shop tools now. A shop with just essential tools including a good band saw will run you about $1,000. Wood for body and neck will run you maybe $150, then you've got all the other parts, pickups, electronics, bridge, nut, hardware running about another $200, so you're looking at maybe $350 not including tools for a halfway decent guitar. And if you don't have rudimentary woodworking skills forget it until you take a woodworking course at the local community college extension or something. You must also have a lot of patience and be willing to be frustrated along the way. Also, get a good book on guitar building, they are all over the place like Amazon or Barnes and Noble, there may even be one at your local library. I'm getting ready to publish an e-booklet on the subject myself with full descriptions and photos. Also check out the site for Stewart McDonald guitar shop, he's got tons of free articles on the subject and he can sell you everything you need - I don't have the web address with me, but just do a web search. Oh, and I know this is lengthy, but if you can do what I did that helped me save tons of bucks is to haunt music stores especially the discount ones and get to know the guys there. Sometimes they'll get hold of boxes of crap they don't want like old hardware and electronics and shit that is perfectly good and you can either buy it from them cheap or even get it free. I did that and store it all in an old tackle box. If I need something, I go root in there first and a lot of times find what I need. Just be sure that this is what you want to do. I love it just for the love of woodworking and guitars but if you are looking for a cheap way out, this ain't it - especially when you can pick up a Yamaha or Epiphone guitar/amp combo at Media Play for around $100.

vince gill sound equipment

I'm lookin for veenies sound formula. mostly how he gets so much clean sustain out of his guitars. what kind of pick ups does he use , are they wired in series or parellel? I heard of a magizine article with vince explaining just what gear he uses to get that sound. my style of pickin is like veenies and I 've had my tele in the shop swicthin out pick-ups so many times, it's drivin me nuts. Is it to much to ask to have at least one guitar that sounds like vince gills ?

I feel your pain Dean! I too have been scouring the web for some insight to Vince's sound, and have been changing pickups on my tele more then I change my strings... and to no avail! His clean tone and sustain still remains an enigma. The closest I have come to getting his sound is playing clean through my middle and neck pickups on my fender deluxe fat strat...they are fender vintage noiseless single coils and have an added sustain with a compressor and the twang of a digital reverb! Good luck in your quest and please forward any info to the above email address that you may find!

For Strat, check out EMG website. There is a Vince Gill set up prewired on a pickguard with electronics included. Big key to Vince's sound, Rivera amps, R100 212. As for effects, I would have to bet a compressor sustain pedal is included in his rig. This is about all I know, or should I say think I know.

Re: vince gill sound equipment

I play a G&L S-500 and I can come pretty close with my H&K Tube Factor and a Keeley Compressor. I think the EMG's and amps he uses are the key; and of course, his touch. I don't want to be him anyway, I just want to get that creamy/dreamy tone into some of my ballad leads.

can I use my amp as a head

can i use my marshall dfx30 with a cabinet or do i really need to buy a head as well? (i will buy one eventually but temporarilly can i use my amp?)

Re: can I use my amp as a head

Basically yes, if your amp has out jacks (if not get a schematic and add some), you might have to do a little impedance tweaking depending on the cab though.

: can i use my marshall dfx30 with a cabinet or do i really need to buy a head as well? (i will buy one eventually but temporarilly can i use my amp?)

amp- get like a heavy metal sound

I have a Jackson electric guitar; and the pick ups are supposed to put out a "thick" sound. What kind of amp should I get to make the sound more heavy metal, like Evanscence or Linkin Park, than acoustic. I don't need a HUGE amp, just like a practice amp size or a little bigger.

thanx!

what's the cheapest strat copy i can get

quality isn't too important. i just want to practice and not worry if i drop the thing.

Re: what's the cheapest strat copy i can get

Probally around $20, just check out ebay.. it'll sound and play like crap though... but still cheap

: quality isn't too important. i just want to practice and not worry if i drop the thing.

Re: what's the cheapest strat copy i can get

Spend $150-$250 for a used Fender Mexican Strat. You can NOT practice on junk. You MUST have a good neck, playable frets and correct intonation. Otherwise, you're wasting your time, and you'll probably come away frustrated. Whatever you buy, spend anonther $45 to have a pro adjust the setup.

Re: what's the cheapest strat copy i can get

Johnson JS800. $119.00
