Re: ****STARFORCE 8002****

about $100, the older ones tend to go for a bit more, ive seen them in the $300 range, but the later ones are of poor quality.

Recording mic too quiet

Just recently i was given a shure pg57 mic for my birthday, but when i try recording anything straight onto the computer the output level is really low and i can hardly hear it even when the amp is loud. This is really bugging me and is very depressing, so please help! i looked on the shure website and they just recommend buying even more expensive equpiment which i really dont want to do.

Re: Recording mic too quiet

On your computer there should be a volume slider for the MIC input. Check to see if it has a gain/boost for the input. This will raise the sensitivity of the Sure mic and increase the signal from it. It is in your sound cards software program probably. Look for a MIXER in the "search for files and programs". This should remedy the problem. If it doesn't have a boost you will need a pre-amp for the mic. I do a lot of recording on mine and I know what a headache this can be.

Re: Recording mic too quiet

also make sure you have the mic in the right input on the sound card, some sound cards have a 'line in' and a 'mic in' ports. not sure on the PG57 but is it a condenser mic? do you have flat batteries in there? there is no need to buy a more expensive mic, you have an input gain problem like pookster says check all your levels, turn them all up!!

Re: Recording mic too quiet

hi , thanks for replying. I have turned up the vol control in the recording software on full, but it is still fairly quiet and it still seems to pick up a lot more hum than guitar sound. The mic itself is apparently a budget version of the Shure SM 58. I found this blurb on the net:
Shure PG 57
Instrument Microphone, Cardioid Dynamic, 50 Hz to 15 kHz.
A versatile microphone for amplified or acoustic instrument
Tailored frequency response is smooth and extended. Tuned specifically for instrument applications. Cardioid polar pattern picks up the most sound from in front of the microphone and some sound from the sides. Less susceptible to feedback in high volume settings. Dynamic cartridge has a simple, rugged coil. Handles extreme volume levels without distortion. Cartridge includes a neodymium magnet for high output level. Internal shock mount for reduced handling noise. Durable metal construction. On/off switch for onstage control. Hardened steel mesh tapered grille that resists wear and abuse.

Re: Recording mic too quiet

Did you search your PC for a mixer control and see if it has a boost or gain attenuator? It will give a 20-30 decible boost to your mic. Also, as Lee said check and make sure you are using the mic input and not a line input. What kind of sound card do you have and what program are you using to record? I know the mic has an XLR type connection, but what type of jack goes to your card? This info will help Lee and I figure out how to help you get it going. If you have an OHM meter, check the cable you are using for a short. We can walk you through that too if needed. The PG & SM58's are for vocal use. I have a PG57 and SM57. Both are great for instrument miking and sound the same. The SM does go 40hz lower in freq' response, but for guitar they both work the same.

i need help installing my floyd rose g gotho on my jackson kelly proffesional

i need help installing my floyd rose on my guitar and puttin the strings on. i love this guitar so anyhelp would be great so thanx.

Re: i need help installing my floyd rose g gotho on my jackson kelly proffesional

go for it trev.

Re: i need help installing my floyd rose g gotho on my jackson kelly proffesional

well first of all you need a diagram for it, you need to uninstall all of your electronics unless you wanna drill right through you shit, you need to have a somethin like a rotozip that can cut at good angles and shit, plan on a new paintjob after you hollow out the body too, stewmac.com has your diagram, call me once you see it all and anyquestions you might have im sure i can answer, but, everything HAS to be perfect, even the slightest offshape or even the slightest angle will show with the trem and itll be shit, an angle would cause it to go cockeyed and yes it screws everything up, i reccommend taking it to a luthier and its well worth the money, , unless you already have a shatty trem installed on it which u just gotta adjust and cut things to it, but still, i reccommend a luthier or custom shop, its got to be very precise. Trevor

: go for it trev.

Re: i need help installing my floyd rose g gotho on my jackson kelly proffesional

I just posted this for another guy here. There is a tutorial of installing a Floyd Rose with pictures and setting up your guitars at www.guitars101.com under the Guitar Rack forum. It's like the first topic in there. Also shows how to install the locking nut.

Re: i need help installing my floyd rose g gotho on my jackson kelly proffesional

Unless your Kelly already has an F.R. or a good F.R. type, I agree with Trevor. The slightest imperfection in the routing of the body recess will throw the whole thing catiwampus. I've done 7 of them...4 went like clock work...one I managed to straighten out...the first two I done, I had to eat. Luckily the store I did repairs for stood behind me and paid for them, 'till I could pay them back. All the books and manuals made it sound so easy and I had all the right tools and templates. Trevor is telling you the gospel, leave it to an experianced guitar tech.
_
catiwahmpus = (cat-e-wah-mpus), adj., The state or condition of an object that is really f#@*$% up. e.g. My truck was all "catiwahmpus" after the train ran over it!!

Acoustic or electric

What is the best guitar for beginners? Can you recomend one?

Re: Acoustic or electric

Guitars are sort of like cars, some are easy to handle and some are hard. The easier a car is to drive the faster you learn to control it. A well set up electric is better to learn on at first, as they have smaller necks and need less pressure on the strings. For a first guitar get one with a fixed bridge. They stay in tune better and it takes a long time to learn to set up and maintain a tremolo system, especialy a Floyd Rose type. Sight down the neck on each side (like sighting down an arrow) to make sure it is straight. There should be no bow or hump that you can really notice. Also, look at the strings as they go over the frets, they should be almost the same distance from the first fret as the last one, about 1/16th" at the first and 3/32nds" at the last. Any closer and this can cause buzzing in the strings when playing it. Any higher and the intonation will be off some what. That is, when the open string notes are in tune, the notes played on the fretboard will get sharper in pitch as you move up the strings. All "A" notes should vibrate at 440 vibration per second, no matter where they are played on the guitar. Buy one from a reputible music store and they will usually set it up for you. I worked for 15 years doing repairs and sales, I always included the set up...lol...and a couple of re-set ups when thier friends tried to tweak it. I tell all my students to get one that's plays well and they will do better. As for the brand, a biginner should learn to drive first, then decide what kind of "vehicle" he wants or needs.

Mosrite

Looking for a Mosrite The Ventures Model 1960-80. Have a 1999 Gibson SG Naruralburst that might trade for the Mosrite.

Re: Mosrite

The music store where I taught guitar for 5 years had two of those. It sold out last Sep. due to the owners failing health. However, I know where the guitars are or were anyway. One was the earlier model with the sandcast Vibra-mute Tremolo. It had the name Vibra-mute and Mosright on it. The guys who bought us out are in Texas. I could ask the man who owned the store if he remembers the name of thier place. I bet they won't trade it for a '99 SG though. They gave him $4000.oo just for it. It looked fresh off the farm, w/original case. My friend Curly Mac of Go Mac Guitars (no you've never heard of him) worked for Semie Moseley, the founder of Mosrite, back in the early '70s. Semie gave it to him as a token of appreciation for his contributions. He sold it to Ed, who owned the store, to pay for a wreck he caused. The other was a later version with a diecast trem. They gave $1500.oo for it. Post back if you would like me to ask about it.
