amp buzz

hi, i have a roland bc/30210 amplifier which i run through a cheapy strat copy. i am more than happy with the tone of the amp, but when i put it on high volume settings/ powerful overdrive it makes a buzzing sound which is v. annoying. i dont think its the pickups but im not sure. Thanks.

Re: amp buzz

Well, Duh, try another guitar, switch the ground switch do something besides whine here...

woops!

hi, i stupidly plugged the speaker cable from my amp ouput into the input of my amp head while it was on thinkin that it was my guitar lead!my amp is a marshall AVT150 head by the way.and when i did this it turned off and wont turn back on again. i took it apart and i know that the fuse has blown, but by just replacing the fuse will that fix my problem? or have i caused more damage?also anyone know what kinda fuse i gotta replace it with? thanks

Re: woops!

RIP

Re: woops!

are you serious? theres no way of fixing it? my amps dead?! surely not!

RIP stupid

wow yur pretty stupid.A musician my ass!

Re: woops!

Just try replacing the fuse, the type you need is most likely listed near the fuse. Mistakes happen and that is why things have fuses. Don't worry about it.

Re: woops!

Well get off yer ass and change the fuse.... If it don't work, get yer wallet out. It's pretty simple stupid...

looking for a decent priced Fender Starcaster (sunburst)

If anyone is selling one, please let me know. I don't know a whole lot about the prices for those but in most of the reviews I've read by people who bought one, they said that they payed anywhere between $600-$900 for it.

Re: looking for a decent priced Fender Starcaster (sunburst)

pity you are in the states, i have a very nice jap '62 reissue for sale, mid 90's all original with hard case for £350.

Re: looking for a decent priced Fender Starcaster (sunburst)

How much is £350 equivalent to?

Re: looking for a decent priced Fender Starcaster (sunburst)

£350 is about $500?? but i wouldnt ship to the states.

Re: looking for a decent priced Fender Starcaster (sunburst)

Would you be willing to work out a deal for that guitar with me? Let me know either on here or e-mail me at xxsleepingtreexx@hotmail.com Thanks.

Re: looking for a decent priced Fender Starcaster (sunburst)

Unfortunately 600-900 USD is not a reasonable price today. The dealers are all asking over $2K USD for Starcasters, and two recently sold on eBay for $1700 and $1300 (a great deal!) respectively. Another two have been posted on eBay for $2500 and $2995, but neither have received bids because frankly they are way overpriced. Another pristine looking blonde is listed for $2795 at one of the online dealers. In short, $1500-$2000 is more realistic as a going price for an excellent condition Starcaster these days! I have been tracking them for the last couple of months, and I bought the one referenced above at $1700 - a very nice white one. Good luck...

Tremolo Picking Warning!

I just read some post on tremolo picking and couldn't believe what I heard. I am not repeating the whole thing but I will post my contradiction. DO NOT USE YOUR ARM INSTEAD OF YOUR WRIST TO TREM!!! THAT IS THE DUMBEST TECHNIQUE TO USE. UNBELIEVABLE! IF YOU WANT TENDONITIS KEEP IT UP. YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO USE ONLY YOUR WRIST AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE COMPLETELY STRAIGHT BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE IT ANGLED YOU CAN ALSO SCREW UP YOUR TENDONS. GUYS HAVE BLOWN OUT THEIR ARMS USING THE ELBOW JOINT INSTEAD OF THE WRIST JOINT. TRY RESTING YOUR FOREARM ON THE TOP EDGE OF THE BODY OF THE GUITAR AND KEEPING YOUR WRIST COMPLETELY RELAXED AND PARALLEL TO THE STRINGS WHILE TREMMING. YOUR ELBOW SHOULD ALSO BE AT 45 DEGREES. QUIT HAVING THE GUITAR HANGING BY YOUR KNEES AND YOUR ARM STRAIGHT. NU-METAL FANS WOULD PLAY WITH THEIR ARM ALL TENSE. SO GAY! TIME TO LEARN SOME BLACK METAL MORONS.

Not familiar much with Ibanez guitars. Some are pro quality, but cost a bit more than $150. I suggest you search on Ebay for the exact same model for auctions that already ended. That might give you an idea of a fair price.

which guitar

I have been playing for a couple of years and am now doing music for a subject in my last year of secondary schooling. I want to buy an electrical guitar. I have about $700 (australian) to spend - any recomendations and why?
thanks

I'll probably get some feedback for this, but I prefer an American-made Fender over Gibson's. Gibson's are great guitars, but I just think that Fender's have "character" that can easily be distinguished on recordings. It really depends a good bit on what style of music you're gonna be performing. $700 should get a nice used Fender off of somewhere like Ebay or local music store. $700 won't get you into a Gibson Les Paul standard though...probably $1000-$1200 (all U.S. funds quoted here). Good luck!

Re: which guitar

I don't know the equivalent of $700 US in Australian currency, but check out the Fender's. Strats and Tele's are a great first electric. Yamaha makes some good guitars too. In agreement with the first response, you couldn't get into a Gibson for under around $1500 US, although great guitars, they are very pricey! Also, PLEASE do not buy the cheapest guitar you can find hoping to save money, buy the BEST that you can afford. Although more expensive, a well made, quality electric will be better in the long run. I hope this helps.

Phil
