Park G10R amplifier

I have just bought one of these amps second hand. I am not sure what the two gain controls are for or how to use them. Can anyone help me with how to set the controls? i.e. what knob does what?

Thanks

Brian

pre and post gain.

Park amps were an off-shoot of Marshall, back in the 80's. Discontinued with the introduction of the MG series of practice amps.

Anyway, the pre-gain is considered your distortion gain. Turn it up, and turn the post gain down. For a "classic" overdrive tone, turn the pre gain down, and turn the post gain up. Post gain is basically a master volume.

Play with them, you'll see what I mean.

Jap fender Strat

Can anyone advise whether it's worth spending say £300 on improving a Jap strat, or should I just put the money towards buying a more expensive USA strat ? Is the quality of the Jap strat fretboard/body good enough to benefit from new hardware/pickups ?

depends on the model.

Japanese made Strats were all the reissue models (50's, 60's, etc), and are actually very nice. The parts are all made in the US, and shipped to Japan for assembly. Rather, WERE shipped, they don't do the Japanese models anymore. Yes, the quality is good enough to benefit from new pickups, but if it's a reissue, then you probably won't need to.

Re: depends on the model.

Hi, you seem to know a lot about Jap Strats. I've got one, with a Floyd Rose-like tremolo bridge but with the inscription FENDER on it. Also on the head there locking-screws to lock the strings. Do you know this model and if so, is it possible to replace the bridge with a different one, because this one is not 100%.
(the series nr is E694872)
Thanks

Yeah, you can use any Floyd Rose style.

You've probably got either an HRR Strat or a Floyd Rose Classic japanese model. YOu can swap the bridge out for any Floyd Rose style...even for an Ibanez if you want. It may require a change of the bridge posts, so make sure whichever model you get comes with them.

Re: inventor of electric guitar info needed

The inventor of the Electric Guitar is Mr. Terauchi Takeshi. His father was an electrician and he was tinkering with the radio set to connect it with the guitar. I do not know the exact date but it was invented in Japan. I just met this guy last week.
He was 64 and still playing concerts. A really kind and nice guy who thinks of others before himself.

I did not read the follow ups so I do not know if you already knew.

Thanks

repairs

the bottom part of my classical guitar broke off the part that holds the strings together, i have reason to believe its been tampered with, but i was wondering if any one knew what kinda of glue i could use to put this part together. thanks

Re: repairs

I have an ovation guitar, how do I remove the freat board with minimum damage

Re: repairs

just use superglue on the bridge, make sure you scrape off all the old glue first

to remove the fretboard use a heat gun or hot blowdryer and 'peel' it off with a wide wood chisel

Guitar & Amp

I have a 77 Gibson Les Paul Custom special edition. It has a blonde face and neck, the sides and back are dark wood. I also have a older gibson amplifier with tubes, not sure of the age...60 something?
Where is the best place to value and sell?

Re: Guitar & Amp

I suggest you check out ebay's auction to see if there are some gears like yours for sale, so you can have an idea of the current price they have on the market. You can also check on Harmony Central's gear classifieds. Also be aware of the weight of your units because as it affects the total price when shipping.

How to meassure a good preap

Is it correct to measure the quality of a tube preamp by the quantity of the tubes it possess? I mean, a tube preamp will in every case, be better than other that contains less tubes?

Re: How to meassure a good preap

no ya don't just count tubes, it's all about the design and tone you are after, are oranges better than apples just cuz ya have more of them ?

Spend Rs.460 or $10 and Earn Million

I started out with $10. Now, I am making thousands. I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $10.00! So I thought, "Yeah right, this must be a scam", but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send $10.00 to one of the account mentioned below in article and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups. (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured: "what have I got to lose except $10.00 right?" Then I invested the measly $10.00. Well GUESS WHAT!?... within 7 days, I started getting money in my account! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $20.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over $6,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $15,000.00 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth $10.00, I have spent more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, WHY it works... Also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you thought possible by doing something so easy!

Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!

It's easy. It's legal. And your investment is only $10.00

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is 99% no risk - it really works!

If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends.

PLEASE NOTE: Follow these directions EXACTLY, and $20,000.00 or more can be yours in 20 to 60 days

Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1:

Send an email to jamesbizplan@hotmail.com stating "INTERESTED - SEND ME YOUR A/C NO." in subject line. You receive our e-gold, moneybookers or StormPay a/c Nos through email within next 12 hrs. Account Nos have'nt been mentioned here due to security reason. And, this is to provide you all a cheat proof service.

STEP 2:

Now transfer $10 to one of above referred accounts and inform your transanction made to email : jamesbizplan@hotmail.com stating (1) Your Name (2) Your e-gold / StormPay / moneybookers account No. (3) 4 Names and IDs stated below in this article. (4) e-gold / StormPay / moneybookers transaction No. Do mention "PLEASE SEND MY ID" in subject line.

Mention these 4 names and IDs in your email. :

#1) M.A. Freeman - ID # JBP1106

#2) John Visser - ID # JBP1110

#3) C. Warren - ID # JBP1216

#4) Surender Kalra - ID # JBP1243

STEP 3:

Now retrieve an email within next 12 hrs. that contains your ID and an attached .doc file.

STEP 4:

The above referred attached .doc file contains the same article but amended with your Name and ID at # 4 position. Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make! You won't get very much unless you post like crazy. It is so simple that you can post article following the instructions even if you are an internet-beginner.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program is CHEAT-PROOF. No one may make changes by adding his/her name and gets benefited. One who pay $10.00 and make efforts by posting articles starts making thousands of dollars only. This is the way that program checks honesty and integrity of the participants before their joining.

HOW IT WORKS?

So, after receipt of $10.00 from you, four members will be reimbursed with two dollars each in their respective e-gold, moneybookers or StormPay a/c. ($2.00 for each of the first four people listed above and to whom you have also mentioned in your email) Now, the name #1 position is taken off the list that you see above, the other names is moved up (4 becomes 3, 3 becomes 2 and 2 becomes 1) and added YOUR Name and ID at # 4 position on the list. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will be receiving thousands of dollars!!! What an opportunity for only $10.00 Send it now, start your business right now!

After posting 200 articles to newsgroups, say you receive only 5% response that is 10 persons (a very low example). So then you make $20.00 with your name at #4 position.

Now, each of the 10 persons, make the MINIMUM 200 postings with your name at#3 position and only 10 persons respond to each of the original 10, that is another $200.00! for you.

Now, those 10 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 with your name at #2 position and only receive 5% replies each, you will make an additional $2,000.00!

Let's take a breath.... now, each of those 10 persons post a MINIMUM 200 with your name at #1 position and they only receive 5% replies that is 10 replies each, that just bring $20,000.00!!!

With an original investment of only $10.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send out another $10.00 to reserve your position at #4. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So, can you afford $10.00 and see if it really works?? I think so... People have said, "what if the plan is played out and no one refers me ? So what! What are the chances of that happening when there are tons of new users and new people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try and to make a residual income? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual internet. Remember, this is a cheat-proof way to make a bundle, from your home for a one-time investment of $10.00 only.
