T. Haruo guitar

Ibought my guitar at a small music store in San Bernardino,Ca. in 1981.The haruo is one of the best sounding easiest playing guitars I!ve ever played.It has a presence on or off stage,large,or small room. Chords have a resonance that sustains well while individual notes have clarity with good tonal quality through low and high ranges.I have played and enjoyed my guitar for 23 years,I will until I can!t play any more.

Marshall AVT 50

Why does the OD channel of my amp has a bad sound? It's different from the other distortions. I heard a fender 30W distortion and it sounds better?
What is the difference?

Re: Marshall AVT 50

I have the head version of the AVT50. Mine sounds fine. I owned a Fender Roc Pro before it and several other heads and for the price this one definately delivers the best sound/value all around. You might try replacing the pre-amp tube. My roc pro sounded like crap till I replaced it then it was much better afterwards.

Re: Marshall AVT 50

What could be the price for the pre-amp tube?

Armik

The amazing guitarist Armik needs to record at least one CD with nothing but solo guitar. The midi keyboard stuff being used is far below talent level. On his latest recording track 11, a solo guitar piece is outstanding. Does anyone know what type of mic is being used. the acoustic sound is outstanding!

why does my amp feedback

i was wondering why my amp causes feedback sometimes, i want to know how it occurs so maybe i can play around with it

Re: why does my amp feedback

The sound from the amp is being picked up by your pickups, thats what causes it. To remedy it without having to turn down your amp, try standing farther away and not facing it. Also mess with the eq alittle and your pickup placement.

Re: why does my amp feedback

:hey, thanks for the answer, it helped me out alot, um.... i got another one though. How do i play with feedback?

Hi Turk

The standard of guitars has probably risen so much since you last played, most stuff nowadays is fairly good.

If you could get hold of an older Squire Strat. A Korean made one would be the best. As the newer Chinese ones are really cheap and nasty. Your lookin for something maybe three to four years old.

Some of 'em are nearly as good as the real thing.

All the best with your search
