He thinks he´s Rambo !!!

: I just read an interview with him today. He was bashing Ted Nugent, SRV, Aerosmith, and many others. I smell jealousy. I like your work Frank, but nobody wants to hear the rant of a bitter old man. He spends most of the interview bitching about being compared to Hendrix. I will never buy another Frank Marino cd.

Re: Who the hell does Frank Marino think he is?

Franks cool, he has the write to get bitter he stuck playin these shity little gigs at beer pubs when he's such a great player. The dude ROCKS

Re: Who the hell does Frank Marino think he is?

Franks Musicanship is unmatched in many ways. But we the fans cant live off reclcled old albums. He was blackballed and most persons never heard of him, but all gutiarist know of him he is a guitarist guitarist but yes quit the interviews and 25 yeary old stories pick up the guitar and talk.this waiting waiting for music is sad just play and get it out to people they will do the rest frank talks about/// play about it thats what your loved for

wah wah sounds

I have an orignaly dunlop crybaby but I can't seem to get a strong wah sound. I want a sound close to that which Kirk Hammet uses because I play a lot of MetallicA. Can anyone help?!

Re: wah wah sounds

Ya, I have the same problem. The sound is terrible, I don't know why. I suppose Steve Vai, Joe Satriani a many others use Dunlop Crybaby Wah Wah and their sound is very good. How is it possible? Maybe there are more models under this brand?!?

Re: wah wah sounds

I use a Dunlop Crybaby and have had not problems. Sometimes weak wah can be a problem with the innards of the pedal itself. The Wah effect works on a Potentiometer, which is adjusted by your foot as it moves up and down on the pedal. The Potentiometer or "pot" adjusts your signal alternately filtering out high range and low range frequencies, depending on your foot position. Sometimes it's efficacy is limited when used through an effect loop, you may want to try running it direct (from your guitar, to pedal, to input on amp.) You may also want to try taking it to your local guitar shop and having them check the "pot" and see if it is working properly. If the "pot" is fried, that will cause your poor wah. You may also consider changing the battery. These pedals use pretty serious juice, and will remain "on" if there is a cable left in the input (and sometimes the output) jacks. A weak battery will also cause these problems.

Try next: cable from guitar to distortion to wah to amp. don't set distortion for too high output level
since wah may sound too muddy.. (this method is opposite to normal, but more effective since you
can modulate already distorted signal which contains much harmonics)

Re: vester acoustic

I have a Vester shallow body acoustic. it is a great stage guitar. I paid $600.00 CDn for it used. It's worth between 700-800 new. They're great. The electonics are well put together with a nice EQ and it is very comfortable to play. It's similar to a Tak shallow body. Plays nice, I recommend gettin' one.
Cheers,
Grant

Re: Marshall jcm

I personaly think the JCM 800 SMOKES!! It's overdrive is legendary,probably because of it's simple design.The JMC 900's aren't bad though.

Hughes & Kettner TriAmp faillure

Hi,

Can anybody help me with the following issue:

Recently I've installed the MSM-1 MIDI module in my TriAmp's head, but now the LEDS on my frontpanel don't work anymore and I lost my sound completely! The only thing that a little functions, is the mastervolume. I have to crank it completely and then I will get a 'digitally' sound. Please can you help me? Thanks.
Ben van Geest
