Yamaha Classical G255SII worth?

I have a Yamaha classical G-255SII guitar and am thinking of selling it. It's in near mint condition. Any idea on how much these go far -- a ballpark. Thanks

Re: Yamaha Classical G255SII worth?

In near mint condition, top dollar would be $250. I would expect a more realistic price(ie quick sell)would be $175 to $200.

Talkbox questions

Do any of you guys use a talkbox? Are they easy to master? Does the make of the talkbox have any distinct effect on the sound? Does anyone know what make of talkbox Richie Sambora uses?

Re: Talkbox questions

If your on a budget, danelectro has a new talk box pedal available. haven't tried one yet. See if your local store has one & try it out. I have no idea what sambora uses, but I'm sure it's big $$.

Re: Talkbox questions

Thanks for the tip, I'll have to check out that Danelectro!

Re: Talkbox questions

I recently bought a Rocktron Banshee talk box. I did a lot of research into the different talk boxes knowing that I wanted to get one and i decided on the banshee for a couple reasons. I was looking at the danelectro free speech box for a while, but I read a lot of reviews that said it was horrible for playing live because the tube wasn't long enough. Also, the effect's quality wasn't as good and was not truly comparable to the heil talk box that most of the famous musicians like Peter Frampton used. The other was that the banshee is also built similarly to the danelectro in that it wont kill your amp if you turn it up too loud. That is the problem with the heil and many other earlier talk boxes. The banshee sounds amazing and it's easy to set up. All you have to do is plug in your guitar to one side of the pedal, put a cord from the other side to the amp, and run the tube up next to a microphone. when you turn the effect off, you play normally through the amp and when it's on, all the sound comes through the tube and with your mouth over to tube, the sound is picked up by the mic. They're all pretty similar in price , so I definitely think the Rocktron Banshee is the way to go.

Re: Talkbox questions

i just bought a heil today and it kicks ass!!
does anyone hve suggestions for instruments on a korg triton?

Re: Talkbox questions

Ive just ordered a Danelectro Talkbox, heard its pretty good. Sambora uses a Rocktron Banshee Talkbox. Ive gone for the Danelectro as its a simple in line talkbox. Other talkboxes require you to use external mics n stuff. Email me if you've brought one of the Danelectro's and let me know how good it is. Cant wait to get mine!

Volume fading in/out on marshall

Hi! I have a Marshall Artist 3203 head and have noticed that the volume fades in/out sometimes
could this be from a close by computer? This is a recent problem and the computers been close for some time now, so i dunno what it is. Any ideas??

Re: Volume fading in/out on marshall

I have the exact same amp and had the exact same probs. A buddy of mine told me to turn on the power only (not the standby) and leave it on for 24 to 48 hours. He told me if you use it for short periods, it doesn't give it a chance to charge the caps. It worked for me. I still have to do it every couple months because I don't play for long periods. let me know if it helps.

I'm looking for a bajo sexto effect

Hello I'm looking for a special effect "bajo sexto effect". It is an effect that would make an electric guitar sound like a bajo sexto acoustic guitar, my friend saw a band using one of those but I haven't been able to find it. Do you know of any address or place that I could find one? I appreciate it.
Enrique.

Re: I'm looking for a bajo sexto effect

Hank,
I have never heard of a effect for the bajo sexto. You could probably try an acoustic effect or maybe even an acoustic preamp. It also depends on yuor guitar. You can get close the sound you are looking for by adding mids and taking out lows. Once you find a sound similiar then work on your technique. The mimic the bajo, limit the number of strings you play. When I am using a guitar I treat it as a Bajo Quinto/Sexto. When playing conjunto on an electric guitar don't play all the strings. Look at the chords that you are using. Are they bar chords? Barchords ring too much and it is hard to control the sound. Use the bajo chords. This means don't play the the 1st and 2nd string. So learn the bajo chords. I am putting together a book that discusses this in further detail. It will be out in about a year if i can get it published. It will be in english because it is geared to keep the bajo alive and well in the US. You can email me at tsoundpro@hotmail.com Please email me and let me know how it is going. Learn the chords and think about getting a bajo quinto (Don't get a Lone Star. It is affordable but the sound does not fit well amplified conjuntos. If you don't believe me go see a Stampede show. Get a Guerrero ($700)or maybe a Gabi.).

Re: I'm looking for a bajo sexto effect

Considering the Bajo is tuned lower than a standard try using an "octave pedal". I will automatically double each note you play either an octave about or below. It sounds pretty close, but without the woody acoustic sound. Also one thing I've noticed that electric player usually do here in Michigan is play their guitar through a bass amp. hope this helps..

Re: pod site assist

The line 6 site is best (and the links there cover the best sites) and there are alot of people at wholenote to 'swap' with. I also it useful to use the patches from the guitar world tab at the site to approximate a tone I am looking for and then tweak from there.

Re: channel switching pop

if it a mechanical switch then a very low value cap across the terminals may eliminate the pop. more info on the device would help me determine the fix more precisely
