A General Question about pedals

Ok i know nothing about pedals so the answer to this may be painfully obvious but im gonna ask it anyway :P. If these multi-fx pedals exist with shitloads of effects...why do most people still use individual pedals that cost hundreds of dollars each?

Re: A General Question about pedals

simple answer is the individual pedals give a better/different sound, i have a Bos ME50, it has some good sounds on there but nothing beats my Turbo Rat for a fat distortion sound, its down to personal taste, a lot of the individual pedals are shed loads better than multiFX.

is bass important when playing live

i was always wondering whether bass would be important for live?.. because a number of people told me that bass usually can't be heard on live.. is that true?

Re: is bass important when playing live

it mostly depends on what kind of music you are playing but most of the time bass is very important.And live sometimes you cant hear bass at punk shows etc. but usually when you can hear the bass it gives much better sound to the band.

Cole Clark

Has anyone here played a cole clark fatlady 1 acoustic guitar? I am in the market and stumbled upon these guitars, they seem like a great deal for solid wood guitars. I would appreciate anyones input who has played or owns one and how much they paid for it. Thanks

Re: Cole Clark

I own a FatLady 1A and got it for $1000.They're so cheap(for an all solid acoustic) because its a new company.For that price youre basically getting a boutique-quality hand made guitar.They're built like traditional Spanish guitars with no expense spared(integral neck heel not cheap bolt-on or dovetail joints like Martins/Taylors/almost any american/japanese guitar),which you wont find anywhere unless you get a non-factory built guitar(which will cost upwards of $4000).Sound-wise they equal or better the best on the market.FatLady 2's start at around $1500,which is the same as the FL1 but with some cosmetic differences.If you're outside of Australia,the cost of getting the basic model will be around US$1100.

Kona electric guitars

Hey, I'm looking at a Kona electric guitar I saw in a pawn shop. I don't know much about electrics, but I do own and play an acoustic. The model of the guitar was either KES2T or the KES1T. I'm not sure which. They were selling it for about 150 brand new. Still had tags and everything. Just looking at it I thought it looked like a nice guitar. I was told though, that you should avoid any brand of guitar that's not a major brand like Martin, Peavey, or Yamaha. If anyone else owns one of these guitars, I'd appreciate the feedback.

Re: Kona electric guitars

: Okay, just an update. It's definitley a KES2T. If anyone knows anything about this or any other Kona guitar, I'd appreciate some feedback. Thanks.

Kona is a fairly entry level guitar, but not bad for the cash, i bought a Kona bass just to "Have" a bass, but it is very similar in sound to a $300 Ibanez. plays well, straight neck, stays in tune... not bad for 150.

Westbury Guitars Inc.

This post is to inform everyone who is interested that as of November of 2003, “Westbury guitars Inc.” is back in business and will have their product out by mid summer. These guitars are high end but affordable and not made at Matsumoku or in Japan, rather, right here in the U.S.A.---100% U.S.A. made guitars. Other high-end guitars say they are made in the U.S. and indeed are not. It is my obligation to expose companies like Brian Moor and PRS who have their guitars made over seas in Korea and assembled here in the U.S. and are legally allowed to put the U.S.A. stamp on their product. There may never be an Uncle Mat again but there will always be an Uncle Sam and Westbury Guitars Inc. realizes this and that’s why there will be a 100% USA made stamp on the new line of Westbury Guitars. (Not at all affiliated with Univox)
Prototypes are being made in PA and LA and Westbury Guitars Inc. is very close to Ok-ing the design and will begin production in April. Low serial numbered models can be ordered through www.westburyguitars.com and the site will also have a ton of information on the vintage models.

Guitar Class System

i played a 'Korean' Tokai les paul copy in a shop, i was totaly knocked out by the guitar, tone playability, it even looks like the real thing, so i ended up buying one, and i realy cant fault it, sure the finishing is a bit poor but what do you expect for £399 new?, anyway there was very little info on these 'Koreans' so i got on to a Tokai discussion board, and the Tokai 'Japanese' owners are rubbishing the 'Korean' Guitars!! for being not up to Jap standard!! i thought how ironic, the copies are knocking the copies of the copies! its like the english class system.

Songs in Tune?

I've looked it up on the net and i cant really get a good understanding of what songs are in certain tune...like a song being in "A" for example...can anyone give an easy explanation of it?

Re: Songs in Tune?

simply put, it is the key the song is in, mostly where the singing starts, if it starts in the chord of 'A' then its in the key of 'A'.
genraly speaking you also have to disregard the intro.
does that make sense?? probably not...

Re: Songs in Tune?

Actually yes that does help, but i'm still clueless to it all...haha

Re: Songs in Tune?

A scale is a series of notes with a set 'interval' between each note. Try singing the 'doh, ray, me...' scale. The note you start on is the 'key' . Play one on the guitar.

Same thing. As Lee say, chances are if you're playing a song the first chord you play defines the 'key'. In most songs all the notes in the melody/ tune will be on the 'doh, ray, me...' scale, starting with the first chord/ note (assuming the song is in the 'major' key).

A bit more.. The scale of notes has only 7 different tones (defined notes) in it - sing/ play the 'doh, ray, me...' and count them (the 8th note is an octave above the 1st note. Generally, you'll find you will only play chords which lie on certain numbers in this scale - the 1st, or 'root' chord, the chord starting with the 4th note on the scale, and the chord starting on the 5th note (referred to as.. the 4th, and 5th!!).
In the scale of C Major, the root chord is therefore C, the 3th is F and the 5th is G. These three chords (in different keys) make up probably 99% of all songs ever written.

Hope this helps.

Seville Guitars

Marshall Studio 15 question

I have a Marshall Studio 15 with a manufactured date of 29-8-85 Serial number T24801. The speaker in this amp is not like other Studio 15's I've seen. It has a square back with no manufacturer's name. There are numbers stamped on square part; 30065 and 67:8334

I'm wondering if Marshall used a different speaker in the earlier Studio 15 amps, if this is the original speaker or if not the original what it is. The amp sounds great as is, just wondering what it is. Thanks for any insight anyone might have.

Re: Marshall Studio 15 question

The original speaker is a Celestion Vintage 30.

Changing nylon strings

When I change the nylon strings on my acoustic, the string keeps slipping and so it's always flat. Can you help?

Re: Changing nylon strings

wrap the string around the tuner, than make sure you slip the string under itself as it come around.

: When I change the nylon strings on my acoustic, the string keeps slipping and so it's always flat. Can you help?
Tie a knot in the string if you need to do what ever you have to also nylon strings take a few days to settle down. So just keep just keep retuning til they settle
