Re: wiring diagram

: I too am looking for a wiring diagram. It's for my son Aria Pro 2( 1980).
: I'm told that it has humbugger pickups. Two of the wires are detached and I can't tell to where they were
: soldered. Can anyone help?
The right term is humbucker witch is a dobbel picup.
Sold the live ( red I think) to the picup switch, and the eart ( white I think ) to chassi ( back sid of eny of the pots)

Running from left to right, the first knob is master volume, the second knob controls volume for the neck pickup, and the third knob is tone, with a pull coil-tap switch.

Lace Sensor vs standard Strat pickups- hows the tone?

I've had numberous Strats over the years, right now I have a "Big Apple Strat" with humbuckers. Theres something about the humbuckers that just don't give you that classic "Strat sound" so I want to get a single coil Strat. However, I've never had one with Lace Sensor pickups, and although I hear they are good because they buzz alot less, I'm just wondering if you scarifice any of that classic tone for the noise reduction.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It all depends on the specific single coil sound you're after. I'm currently getting ready to change out some stock single coils in my Strat with Red, Silver & Gold Lace Sensor(s). I had a Strat plus for many years with Lace sensor Golds which I ran through a Roland GP8 into a Marshall 2x12 JTM reissue. The golds give you a glassy bell like tone that is much closer to a vintage type of single coil sound. It's never going to be exactly the same but I'm willing to sacrifice some of that sound for versatility. They are phenomenal for anything from super clean to a moderate distortion effect but for a super overdriven/distortion they are HORRIBLE. Red lace sensors on the other hand are great for that raw overdriven/distortion. If you want versatility, go with a Red in the bridge, a Silver in the middle and a Gold in the neck. (Blue version SUCKS) The red are unbelievably hot while the Silver give that great early 70's mid range sound. The biggest advantage to using lace sensors in my opinion is versatility. Unlike most all single coil pickups, you can plug a strat with lace sensors straight into an amp / effect setup that's more geared towards a guitar with humbuckers. While standard single coil pick ups won't hum if you use the 3rd or 5th switch position on a strat, you usually have to fiddle with eq settings on your amp/effects because they tend to be screechy when you overdrive them. I was in the store just yesterday with my processor/amp and was amazed at how my processor/amp settings, which are configured for my Les Paul Standard, sounded perfect when I played the lace sensor strat through it. I wouldn't buy a strat plus but would rather refit a newer strat with the aforementioned lace sensor designations. Find a Strat you really like and refit it with lace sensors!

Pinky

I'm expecting a slap in the face from Mr. Amaker, but I'm asking this lame question anyway, brave sould that I am.

How do I make my pinky stronger? I'm giving Steve a lot of material here, but I'm serious. I'm a beginner, have an acoustic, and my pinky is just plain convulsive. I gotta get it under control.

Does anyone know of any pinky streghtening exercises?

Re: Pinky

hahaha.... mmmmm, I pass on the easy vulgar remark, but an easy way is 1st finger 1st fret 6th string then trill the 4th fret w/pinky a few, pull off to the 1st, slide to the second, trill/pull off the 5th... all the way down to at least the 12th, then back up, and on each string... also practice slides w/pinky, like slide from the 3rd to 4th fret 6th string then "roll" pinky onto 5th string 4th fret then play 4.3.2.1 or any pattern ya like, and do it down/up the neck/strings, you should defintely feel that and after about a week or 2 you should notice a difference, also barre each fret and practice trills/pull offs w/each finger, string skipping, patterns, scales etc without removing the barre... and last but not least rippp those scales/modes w/o using your 1st finger, I found that the best practice for working/stretching ole pinky, now if ya want to hear something crude/but funny... just let me know... I can defintely oblidge there.

ohh yeah, go to wholenote.com

Re: Pinky

Many thanks. Nice to know it's a common issue and that my pinky isn't defective.

Re: Pinky

Hmm.Trills are probably the best excersise I can think of.Use the A pentatonic and trill your way up and down the scale.I use the C lydian or D mixolydian mode to work out my pinky.Go slow,then build up speed.
Good Luck

Band/MP3 hosting - your opinions

Hi all,

I'm thinking of exploring some of the options out there for those of you that want to have your music hosted on sites such as MP3.com.

What sites do you recommend? Have you any great stories to tell or horror tales?

I'd appreciate some feedback on this.

Cheers

Replaced valves and not enough bias adj- now what??

I have a Rivera TBR-5 using Rivera 6550a tubes stamped 6, and replaced them with Mesa Boogie 6550's. They are all marked AC YEL- however two have a 38 and the other two have a 45 stamped. They were sold as a matched Yellow Quartet- When installed the bias current leapt from the expected 160mA to 300 odd. When bias pot is fully reduced it is still 260 mA.
Question 1: does anyone know if this is actually a matched set of four as yellows or does the 38/45 stamp mean something?
Question 2: Could this contribute to the huge swing in output current? Or is it possible to change eg resistors to bring this current back down?
Thanks for any help/response.

Re: Hey Johnny...how's Hadji and Bandit??

Everything's going great. Thanks for asking. We're still working on Haji's friggin' accent. Hard to get past the check points without bribing them people with herbal tea bags. I personally think the stuff smells like ca-ca. Still haven't solved all the mystery's though but bandits getting old. So is Race, but he's still a ladies man, i guess. Maybe i can fill my dad's shoes some day. thx for asking.

I recently aquired my boss harmonist hr-2 from a friend who has no clue. I am clueless as well. I understand the two amps and the octive shifting but when I drop the octive -6 I have the feeling my amp may explode. Has anyone attempted to use it on a bass amp? I looked at bosses site and it sux for anything but buying crap. go figure. Can someone break this thing down stupid style for me?

Re: harmonist hr-2 info

If you're using a bass, your amp may very well explode!!
Dropping bass notes down will entering the realm of earthquake like vibrations!!
