I didn't mean an actual old telecaster! It's just a turn of phrase us Brits use - any model will do!!

what does a compressor pedal do?

what does a compressor pedal do? i bought a danelectro surf and turf compressor and cant realy tell what its ment for... i thought it was for sustain but .... i dont know i need help... Anyone please help.

: what does a compressor pedal do? i bought a danelectro surf and turf compressor and cant realy tell what its ment for... i thought it was for sustain but .... i dont know i need help... Anyone please help.

A compressor can help with sustain, but it's main function is to even out the signal levels from your guitar to your amp, so you (hopefully!) get a consistant sound level.

That's not to say you can't turn your guitar up, it just evens out signals at the current volume.

Re: what does a compressor pedal do?

Gives u a tighter sound good for metal cuts out all the ambiant fuzzy noise your gear may have

Power Supply for Ibanez pt5 multi-fx pedal!

can anyone tell me if i can use a universal power supply would work for the pt5? im about to buy one b/c i would like to have one but the guy does not have to p/s...if a universal won't work, where can i find one?

what is it and whats it worth

I have a gibson studio les paul serial#83354565,could someone tell me what year it was made.It is in excellent shape.It has binding around the body and dot inlays.WHAT is it worth and where can I sell it.

1984

You could probably get around $500-600 on EBay for it.

Re: 1984

I hate to disagree after asking however,This is a studio les paul custom,I believe the binding makes it a custom,and this is the first year they made the studio and I have yet to see another one like it and I have been playing for 25 years.

MARTIN SIGMA D 57 EST 1970

MARTIN SIGMA DR-7 EST 1970

NEED INFO ON THIS GUITAR ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED. THANKS

Re: MARTIN SIGMA DR-7 EST 1970

I bought a Sigma DR-7 in 1978. I have been performing with it ever since. It is a great workhorse guitar with a good sound. Admittedly, it doesn't have the tonal qualities of my Martin D-42, but then again what does! An added benefit of the Sigma is that I dont have to worry that much about someone walking off with my ole' workhorse (unless they really know the Sigma secret). A good reliable guitar with good tonal qualities despite being beat upon, accidentally kicked, knocked off stands, bumped into microphones, showered with beer and whiskey, and traveling in the heat and cold throughout the country. Not many boxes would tolerate such abuse and still keep singing pretty -- this Sigma has and continues to shine.

finger taps

when i play metal solos (or any solo with taps for that matter) i can't seem to keep my other strings from ringing even though i'm sure i'm not touching them. also i cant get the same amount of volume out of the taps as normal picking. i've tried tapping with both my finger and my pick but i can't seem to get it right. can someone help me?

Possibly, you could set up a sound you only use for tapping - the same as your normal solo sound, but with little or no sustain. This might reduce the unwanted string noise.

Not sure how helpful this will be, but give it a go.

Re: finger taps

if strings are ringing just mute them, it's pretty common when using fair amounts of OD/gain, you just have to get used to it (muting strays). When you start out tapping it'll be softer than regular picking, if it's way softer try adjusting your string/pup height, best thing is just keep practicing, and practicing (sorry no magical advice here).... and it'll come

Re: finger taps

If you pick with your right hand, use your right palm to mute the strings you are not tapping.

And as for getting the same amount of volume you would with regular picking, that just takes practice (hours) Good luck

Appraisal of Gibson Les Paul, natural, Maple fingerboard

I have a 1976 or 1977 Gibson Les Paul Custom, natural maple finish with a maple fingerboard. Original owner and still have warranty card (somewhere). The pickups have been replaced with Dimarzios but have the originals. The fingerboard was refinished during a refret and the bridge was replaced (do not have originals). I have been trying to determine it's value but have not been able to find anything comparable on the internet. A guitar tech believes that it's extremely rare and worth about 3-5K. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Appraisal of Gibson Les Paul, natural, Maple fingerboard

I have a 1976 LP Custom. Natural color, maple neck/fretboard. Pancake body. All original but it could use a refret in a year or two. The best I can tell you is Gibson made about 800 of these between 1975 and 1981. About half had black bodies and half had natural bodies. That comes to about 400 of them around. And that was back then. Many are junk by now.

They are extremely rare, but you can find them ocasionally for about 2500. But due to the rarity of them, thier worth whatever you can get for them. I think it's a sleeper. Hold on to it another few years. It's a rare guitar to begin with. In fact, if more people know they exist the demand would be more. I play Jazz with mine.

You can tell the year by the serial number. if it starts with 00 it's a 76. Also, in 76 they had the top hat knobs (those black knobs with the silver inserts) and switched to speed knobs in 77. Those fat, clear/gold knobs.

Throw the piece of junk in the garbage. Buy a real guitar like an Ibanez or any Jap brand .... where the employees don't build your guitar after drinking all night. You will save alot of $$ too !
