Volume Control

Epiphone dot335 and a '52 reissue telecaster. Eppy is way louder than the tele. So, when switching from one guitar to the other, I have to seriously readjust the volumes on my Fender Deluxe. Any suggestions on how to avoid or ease this, short of playing two of the same guitar??

Re: Volume Control

I'd suggest a volume pedal. Leave it off for the tele, then when you switch to the Epiphone, turn on the volume pedal with the volume already on a pre-set lower level.

acoustic guitar string tension

I am doing research on acoustic guitar string tension. I understand that for a classical guitar the tension is about 120 pounds pressure on the neck with all six strings which is about 20lbs per string. In terms of acoustic guitar design where and how can the string tension be decreased with out sacrificing tone, volume and performance. I know many guitar builders have made improvements but where did they apply the improvement on the guitar? I would also appreciate if someone could direct me where to look for more information. Thanks, M.M. “Starting a Guitar Revolution on the Central Coast”

Re: acoustic guitar string tension

The pitch of the string is determined by the tension and the mass of the string. Maintaining pitch at a reduced tension would require a reduction in mass as well. This assumes a set string length.

wiring input jack on an old samick bass

I picked up my friends old samick bass guitaar off him. It needs a new input jack and I know next to nothing about wiring a guitar, so this might be a dumb question but... There are 2 wires, but 3 contacts on the input jack. Which wire goes where?

Re: wiring input jack on an old samick bass

I'd just take it to a repair shop.

Help with some basic set up info!

Ok, for all you knowledgable guitar enthusiasts out there that are looking for some neophyte to preach all your know-how to, here's the perfect opportunity.

I'm a hack guitarist, been playing for years, but never in a band until recently. I play both accoustic and electric guitars in the band, but the accoustic I run directly into our 8 channel system, and that isn't an issue for me. Its my electric that I need to learn how to handle. I've got a fender strat deluxe and a small peavey 15 watt amp. For the few gigs we've had so far, I've been plugging into that amp, because I have control over the sound (2 channels, one with pre and post gain for distortion). The problem is it isn't integrated with the rest of our sound system, and also for gigs I don't get the benefit of the monitors. I need to learn how to set up so that I can play through our system and not lose the control or other benefits of playing with my amp. The amp has no output, unfortunately. I use a wah peddle for a couple of tunes, but ideally would like to bypass it when I can. I do have a distortion peddle that I could potentially use instead of my amp, which would give me control over the sound. But then I'm not sure how to link the distortion peddle and the wah and the system. As I said, I'm a neophyte . . .any suggestions for the best way to set up would be much appreciated. Thanks.


Re: Help with some basic set up info!

I'd suggest micing the amp. That'd be the easiest way to do things. Or if you want to run from your distortion pedal then just run a line out from the pedal directly into the soundboard or mixer or whatever you have. There should be an input for a 1/4" jack directly below the input for the mic, or somewhere close to it.

Can anyone find a fuse for my amp?

I recently blew a fuse in my amp and i can't find any of the following fuses:100W 2A, 115W 2A, 230W 3A. If anyone can find me one or have a spare they are willing to send could you please e-mail me

Re: Can anyone find a fuse for my amp?

Check the company website of the type of amp you have, e-mail them asking where you could buy one if they don't have it listed on the site. You could try a hardware store, but typically their fuses are made to take more power and you could end up blowing your amp for good, or effing up your transistor.

amp settings

Hey is there anyone out there who know's a good amp setting for SYSTEM OF A DOWN, for a Marshall MG-series 100DFX amp

Re: amp settings

First of all, to get a good sound for SOAD, get thicker gauge strings. This way when you tune down to their tunings, your strings won't give as much and your tone will be better. Turn up your gain a lot...obviously. I'd say turn up your bass and medium settings and turn the treble down but not off.

Building a guitar valve amplifier

It will sound bad. You'll get a medium range fuzzy distortion.

Boss GT3

I have used a GT3 for a few years now, and really like it. Recently I started getting some distrotion when playing direct thru a board for live performances. Anyone else have this issue and what did you do to fix it?

Re: Boss GT3

Probably loose wiring or you burnt up the GT3 board. Take it a pro and have them look at it.

acoustic-electric for cheap

i am looking into to getting a good acoustic electric for under 300$. one i was looking at was the applause AE28 can somebody help?

Re: acoustic-electric for cheap

The applause would be a good choice, but I'd go with the AE48 unless you don't like that style.

But my overall choice would be the Takamine EG-240. I've played these guitars and they sound gorgeous. They're not a cutaway though.

or you could try.....

Try the lower end Ibanez models. They're only a tick over the price of the Takamine, and far far better than the Applause. I've seen some of them going for $250, with Fishman electronics, and $350 for a solid top.


Does anyone have any info on Bedrock amps?

Re: Bedrock

It depends on what series you're asking about.

Here's a site to help though.

boss gt6

I recently bought a gt6 but when i play it through my marshall valve combo it sounds crap? if i play it through a cheap transistor amp it's great anyone any ideas? Plus where can i down load some patches from

Re: boss gt6

Are you playing through the clean channel of the marshall or the dirty channel?

Re: boss gt6

ok , du u have a send-return loop for effects then i would recomend that u plugg in y'r GT6 in the return and thus using onely the post ( power) amp in y'r combo

if using it thru standard input u will get a
pre-amp on a pre-amp effekt an i would not recoment that ( cause it sounds shit )
