best for the buck?

I see so many players, usually at the more advanced level playing TAYLOR brand. I asked a local reputable dealer what would be the next best value priced a level below TAYLOR, and they stated YOKAHAMA. Any opinions here?

samick 12 string

Had a samick 12 string, tuning bar straight, not at an angle. Got is used, just learning. House got broken into and guitar stolen. Insurance co wants a quote and I don't know the serial number or make of it. It was a bit older, early to mid 90's design. Anyone else out there have one? Need some makes to try to match it to get an estimate for the loss. 'Thanks!

Why does my Mesa Dual Recto suck?!

I bought one off ebay about a year ago and it sounded PHENOMINAL! i mean tons of chunk... distortion was bad assed. everything. And so the story goes, i end up blowing it out by plugging in the wrong two tubes to make it 50 watt. after i get it fixed and get it back, it sounds like complete crap to me. im totally frustrated and even tho the guy assures me that nothing is wrong, it doesnt sound good. it has no sustain and i have to turn the raw channel 3 up to full gain to get any chunk. i used to have to put it at about 6 o clock to get tons of gain. frustrated as i am, i sell it on ebay and look for a new one. i stop at the local guitar store and hear one that sounds great. like its supposed to. the only problem is that he sold it 15 minutes before i get there and i have to watch the guy buy it in front of me. so, determined to get my killer tone, i go to guitar center and order one. when it gets here, it sounds just like my "broken" one! im like WHAT THE HELL?! so, that day i end up going to philly... 5 hour drive. this guitar center has 4 in stock. they all SOUND THE SAME! what the hell is going on here? my recto sounds terrible and every one i've played other than the one at the first guitar store sound the same. p.s. I was told that it may be that the guitar has to be broken in because the one at the first guitar store was 6 months old but the others were newer. please help me out. you can send responses to my email.

Re: Why does my Mesa Dual Recto suck?!

There are many reasons.. IE I have a marshall jcm 800 2210. Its the 100 watt version so when turned up a little it was just too... how do I say LOUD. plus it had this midrange from hell sound which is great but not at that volume..... much less I never played it at more than 3 on the master volume. But when I heard I can convert it to a 50 watt by removing either the 2 inner tubes or 2 outer tubes and increase the ohm load, I was curious. SO I removed the 2 inner tubes and since I had an 8ohm cabinet I set the ohm load to 4. well when I plugged that thing in it was tits.. I had sustain from hell, awesome bottom end and the feedback was reminesse of van halen. However, the tubes were not stock (Groove tubes) and I did not destroy the amp first. The problem with amp techs is that the one that fixed your amp did his job well. It produces nice clean tones. On an oscilliscope, that looks great. Problem is it does nothing for your tone.

Bass Guitar Valuation

i was wondering if you could make a rough valuation of a Vester bass guitar. It is a four string, black, slimline guitar with three pickups and an active bass boost battery.

Re: Bass Guitar Valuation

Well all I can say is this. It will make moose calls more "Prenounced" to the crowd.

Samick warrantee work?

My wife bought a Samick acoustic guitar with a battery powered Fishman pickup system. From what I understand, you can keep the battery in the Fishman and it is only activated when the cord is attached to the guitar. The battery doesn't seem to be making a good connection, so it doesn't work.

Should this be replaced under the Samick warrantee, or should I just try to get it replaced elsewhere? Anyone know of any place in the Denver area where I can get this done under the Samick warrantee?

Re: Samick warrantee work?

The battery is most likely turned on when the cord is plugged in.Usually the input jack has two contacts and one is wired to the battery wiring, when the male plug is inserted one of the contacts acts like an on and off switch.Your warranty sheet should have a web site listed in not try www.samick.com or samickguitars.com. If you find a web site look to see if a samack dealer is listed for your area.If the connector where the cord is plugged in is bad a newone should not cost more that 5-10 bucks and is fairly easy to replace.

DOD/BOSS FOOT PEDALS?!?!??????????????????????

I have a DOD grunge pedal and a BOSS super chorus pedal. I plug them both into the amp and it works fine but the batteries keep dying in both of them!! I was wondering if anyone can tell me why they keep doing this, is it because their differend brands? THANKS A LOT!!

Re: DOD/BOSS FOOT PEDALS?!?!??????????????????????

Let me ask you a question then. Do you leave the batteries in them or plugged in after you get done with them? do you constantly have them on all the time when you play? these and more effect how the batteries behave... if you have the pedals on all the time plus have the level cranked to 10 you will get that effect... I would suggest buying or ebaying for a power supply.... that should save you some trouble.... what is your gear setup? what do you have plugged in?

Re: DOD/BOSS FOOT PEDALS?!?!??????????????????????

brian, my setup is a gibson sg standard and a peavey stage amp (160 WATT.) I leave the batteries in them all the time but i turn off the pedal by pressing the button. and i always take out the cords on both sides when im not playing. Am i doing anything wrong? And what do you mean by buy a ower supply? thank you

Re: DOD/BOSS FOOT PEDALS?!?!??????????????????????

Sorry I was typing on a laptop...... What I mean is do you play with the effects on all the time.. If you are you need to buy a power supply dude. You will always have that problem. I sometimes run batteries but that is a last minute jam session with some friends so I just grab my tuner and a wah or chorus and jam... thing is I dont have the pedals turned on all the time. but If I had my pedal board with all my pedals then using the power supply is a neccesity... Basically if you buy a power supply it will solve your problem.. they also call them wal warts too....

Re: DOD/BOSS FOOT PEDALS?!?!??????????????????????

ok thanks a lot brian. I dont have a pedal board yet but i got an adapter so i can plug it right into the wall. thank you

emg pickups

I recently bought the zack wylde set for my esp guitar. But the schematics are hard to understand. I only have 1 volume knob and two tone knobs. The schematics that came with it were not compatible with what I have. Does anyone have the schematics to install these? if you do, can you e-mail them to me. thanks

Hi, just use the other tone pod as volume, easiest way to do it (both volumes are independent, and that 1 tone controls both). Who uses tone from the guitar anyway :). Just surf to EMG's webpage and locate ZW set and you'll get the schematics from there.

Can anyone help me value my Marshall Stack?

I have a 1975 Marshall JTM45 50 watt lead head (no master volume) with 2 4x12 cabs that I want to sell for a smaller Marshall combo. It still has the original tubes and sounds/looks great. Is anyone knowledgeable enough to give me an approximation of it's worth?

Re: Can anyone help me value my Marshall Stack?

sure. about 50 bucks. ill take it off you hands.
just kidding. check ebay and see what theyre going for,final price. depending on the cabs anywhere from 1000.00 - 1700.00 plus shipping. if the ehad was an earlier model from the 60's then youre talking thousands for the head alone!
