Re: boss jam station

Just got one and agree - the manual is c***onfusing. I have started to play around and write down my own notes as I go - for reference. I think it is going to be possible to create some good stuff but the catch is that the "Styles" seem to predefine the drumbeats etc and so the overall approach is more like cutting and pasting sound bites - which would be OK if you could keep in your head, or see laid out, all the possible patterns that are locked into the "Forms".
I'm on the Web looking for help with this. If anyone knows of a good manual on the JS-5, please let me know.
(P.S. Hope your dad is not in the nut house - but if he is, I could be joining him there).

Re: boss jam station

I too just got a js-5 this weekend, I have found certain parts of it to be very simple, but at the same time ther are parts of it that are extreamly hard to figure out..Like the instructions on creating your sounds from the pre-set sounds bits...and also I cant figure out if there a system, where you can creat you OWN drum paterns and rythm?? Good luck finding info on the system..if you find anything at all, please keep me notified at the e-mail above!!

Classica or Flamenco

Hello
I have played the violin for thirty years. Now its time to learn the instrument of my dreams, the flamenco guitar. Should I buy a flamenco guitar or should I buy a classical. Is the flamenco guitar flexible enough to be able to play occasional bouts of classical/samba/jazz or do I really need two guitars.

I just thought that I should let you know that several months ago I purchased a cedar topped Norman B-20 used via ebay for $188.00 US and it is in great shape, and is a great player. In fact, I play with people almost daily who have Martin D-16 and Gibson J45 models, and my Norman B-20 is right up there in quality, playability, and sound. So you could try email and save a few $$$ and give a lonely Norman a good home.

there's a distorted sound when i play on the clean channel of my amp!

Lately, my amp has been putting out this distorted sound on clean setting. Doesn't sound bad for distortion, actually, but i want it to go away. It comes and goes, and sometimes it goes away when i restart my amp. It isn't just static from my pickups if that's what you're thinking! Any ideas on why this happens?

Re: there's a distorted sound when i play on the clean channel of my amp!

Tons of ideas, but for starters without knowing the make/model no one can give ya any worthwile advice.

its a peavey 15W...i'll get the model later. Has clean/gain + reverb. thanks for the help

Re: there's a distorted sound when i play on the clean channel of my amp!

sounds like the decoupling caps are breaking down. check these in each of the preamp stages and also the reverb stage if it has reverb. it maybe a good idea just to change these out as you are having intermitent problems. one other idea (since i don't know any of the specifics) if your guitar has active electronics, it may be time to change the battery as this can also cause the described problem. good luck

Identifying the model and approxiate year of a guitar I bought

I recently bought an old American made Peavey electric guitar with its original hardcase. I do not know what model or year it is. It has a plain timber finish and appears to be from the 70's (i think). Importantly it came with it's original moulded hardcase which included a built in amplifier. Does anyone know anything about this guitar? Any assistance will be well recieved. Thanks

Re: Identifying the model and approxiate year of a guitar I bought

Sounds like a T15 or a T10. These were part of the T series that I believe began in the mid to late seventies. The T60 was the top of the line 6 string and I believe the T40 was a bass. The lower numbered models had variations in pickups an bridge saddles. I suspect that yours has a solid piece with only an overall intonation adjustment (not individual saddles for each string). They all had super thin necks. Very solid guitars and usually still a bargain today. In 1978 the T60 sold for $269.00 with case which was a good deal for a US made guitar.

J200 bridge adjustment

I have a J200 Gibson that I purchased new 34 years ago.

I have recently filed and dressed the frets; and lowered the bridge with the two adjsustment screws which are located at each end of metal portion on the bridge.

I would like to set the strings just a bit lower.

Has anybody on this forum ever filed or ground the bottom of the metal portion of a Gibson moustache bridge? How much can I safely grind or file off the bottom portion?

Re: J200 bridge adjustment

I use a dremmel to rough out, then fine tipped files.
