looks like a faggot guitar
i'm jk but it does a little bit
lashie that guitar is fucking beautiful
If you want a nice sounding, versatile amp and aren't a prick about tube amps then I recommend it.
how exactly do you hook it up then ?
Like I said, you'd need to get 2 AC to regular chords and you could hook them up in your loop. The reason I say it's screwy is because it's makes your signal a lot quieter than it otherwise would be.
it really is man, it plays like a dream. was definitely worth the cash
yep im a prick about tube amps
Taylor 414CE L7
Ibanez Artcore AF105NT
La Patrie Classical
PRS Tremonti SE
Bass: Warwick Fortress Masterman
Ampeg 2x12 Combo
Line 6 Spider II 112
Line 6 PODxt
Oh dear. I'm so sorry.
Nice list otherwise.
Haha I have the 75 watt version of that amp. Quite possibly the worst sounding bit of guitar hardware in existence, it almost turned me away from line 6.
Interestingly, if you put an EQ in your chain and severely cut out all frequencies above 4-5 kHz, you can get a passable sound out of it. I have no idea what line 6 engineers were thinking when they made it so damn trebly/hissy.
Yeah. The Line 6 bits are sort of like relics from junior high...rubbish I got fooled into buying for all the wrong reasons, I guess. I would really love to replace them, but something tells me that I'd get barely anything for selling the Spider, and that I may as well keep the POD just because some of the tones sound quite fine through the Ampeg.
Pretty sure most people have at least one or two skeletons in the closet when it comes to gear. The mixing desk I bought when I first got into recording (which I still use now to hook up my monitors) is a Behringer. It does the job, but I was more than happy to replace the preamps with something better.
Just got one of these today.
Nice. They're great for recording with if you either don't have an amp that's worth micing up, or the facility to do so. The overdrive is pretty sweet when used as a stompbox too.
yeah you can get some awesome meshuggah style tones out of the sans amp if you use it right. Nice buy
Vintage ludwig snare
I guess you never played D's in tune!
WOOOOOO00o0OooOo0oOOo0oooo been waiting about 8 months to say that!
But really, this is the first time I actually took the time to look through this thread, and for some reason, this stuck out more than anything else.
Oh YEAH. I'm leaving that fro there, son!
<3 Schecter, nice score bro
my kit set up at practice the other night.
I can post specs if you guys want.
New one, pawn shop $90, Couldn't pass it up. Nikth got me into Schecters
Just got this, M-Audio Pro 88 Keystation from some guy off of craigslist for $250
FUCK. Just scored on eBay.
1985-1988 Japan make
$115.77 USD shipped.
Best pedal ever.
Shitty cheap-ass bridge, but everything else looks pretty cool.
idk doesn't seem badass enough to have FUCKING DRAGONS on it.
It's fixed though, so it's all good. This guitar is actually really fucking good, I haven't been able to put it down since I got it, and my other schecter is way better quality. I need to replace the pickups and make this guy my main guitar.
Cool to hear you're digging it dude The Diamond Series are their low-end stuff, so the build quality is hit-or-miss, so it's cool to hear you got a good one.
Yeah I've played a few now since you recommended them way back when and definitely, some are terrible, like the Omen and others like that. I have a Hellraiser Deluxe and this one though and they are both fantastic. I'll probably stick with buying them exclusively, I love how they feel.
(Not trolling. Never played one.)
They're really comfortable for me compared to pretty much any other guitar that I've played for their price, especially that new guitar I picked up. I own two and they're both my favorite guitars I've ever owned, just really comfortable in my hands. The neck is sort of like a strat neck, but a little thinner on my hellraiser, and on the new one it's thin but still has a noticeable C shape, which I am accustomed to for vibrato. And the strings are even, and are comfortable to pick fast.
I got this used (but practically new) pointy black guitar yesterday. It has Dimarzio D-Activators in it, which are a lot of fun on the highest gain mode on my amp! Gave it a polish and some new strings tonight, been playing Soilwork, JLB, it's fun!
Nice score! RG7321?
Green pups look great on it.
Thanks! 7321 indeed. I bought one a couple years ago but returned it due to small defects in the workmanship, and was just waiting to come across one that was better made. This saves me the hassle of replacing stock pickups and it only cost me $250!
I was originally interested in getting some green knobs and switch cover so it'd look like the UV77bk green dot JP has in the Lie video but I actually like this look just fine, plus I've noticed that the knobs/switch never seem to match the color of the pups. Might give it a try if I see cheap knobs at GC.
Damn, that's a steal for $250.
I thought so too! Believe it or not he was selling it for $250 OBO, but I didn't want to risk losing out on it by trying to talk him down.
I am beginning to suspect that the neck pickup is out of phase with the bridge... in position 2 it's the outer coil of the neck pup that is active (Ibby diagram shows inner coil), and the middle position sounds quieter and less full than either positions 1 or 5. Gonna have to sit down and figure out exactly what's going on by looking at the wiring...
My brother just bought a used 7321 strictly to mod it. He completely re-did it and just finished up. He absolutely loves that guitar now. Just thought I'd share.
Here's the thread he made about it on sevenstring: http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/lu...zations/141830-just-refinished-my-rg7321.html
The most metal instrument I've ever owned:
HQ pics are so mainstream.
I've just ordered one of these:
Fuck yes. Gonna take about a month for it to be built, but it'll be so worth the wait.
Most recent purchase, can't wait till I can play it for longer than two seconds at a time:
My main guitar is this Ibanez Artwood Vintage Violin, played through an electric amp. That Marshall amp isn't mine; mine is an Ibanez solid state about the same size. I run my guitar through an Alesis AcoustiFX processor and a Digitech distortion stompbox (both unpictured). Sounds. Effin. DIRTY.
That's also my drum kit that my drummer is playing in this picture: Tama Rockstar, 26"-10"-12"-14".
This little beauty, Sears Silvertone that is guessed to be from the '40s or '50s (by the dudes at the guitar store; rough approximation), has the most beautiful rich tone I've ever heard in an acoustic guitar. Its action is a bit high up the neck and it drops tuning after three to four songs, so it's not quite live-performance-worthy, but I use it in most of my recordings when I need a clean acoustic sound. The Ibanez is mainly for plugging in.
This is unfortunately the only picture I have on my computer of Pinky (I'm so effing clever), so you can't see the little heart stickers I put on the fretboard. I picked up this gem at Ross for $60. Came in a fucking cardboard box. Initially I got it so I could have something to destroy, but after playing it, I've discovered that it's actually not a bad guitar. First Act brand and everything. Whodathunk, rite?
Don't you judge me.
Hondo Bass, gifted to me by a roommate who stopped playing. For a 'beginners' bass, that thing has a pretty decent sound to it.
Roland TD-12 (V-drums). Got these while in living situations not conducive to having my acoustic set. They kick ass for recording, let me tell ya.
Yamaha upright piano
Yamaha full weighted-key electric keyboard. Sounds amazing, but is hard to move.
Recording gear-wise, I run through an Alesis iO|26 8-channel firewire interface. Amazing little machine for the price. Have a slew of microphones that are shared with the drummer of my band, including an awesome Sennheiser vocal mic, some AKG condensers, etc. And I'm on a Macbook Pro. Not trying to snob out; PCs have their advantages, but this Mac has been the best thing for recording music. For me, anyways.
Some interesting stuff there man!
Welcome to the forums btw.
Thanks, it seems to be a pretty cool place!
Got this coming in the mail today or tomorrow.
So my new cab finally arrived today:
Fuck me, this is some next level shit.
Some cell phone pictures of my new cymbals/new setup. It's not entirely complete yet. I'm glad I'm pretty much solely TRX now (aside from the splash and ice bell, but I like them too much to buy new ones.) I still have to put the bass drum back in. To do that, I need one of those hihat/bass drum attachments. Until then, I'm just using my bass drum practice pad for practice. Playing right foot hihat is surprisingly second nature, but I'm still getting used to it. I mainly need to break the bad habit of accidentally going to the hihat when I mean to go to the bass drum and vice versa. I just need to get more familiar with two pedals on the right side and I'll be fine. Also, I'm working on transitioning from the 14" to the 16" across the snare. There's quite a bit of distance, but I can do it. I'm loving this setup so much. I'm so happy. I've pretty much practiced for hours on end every single day since I've had it set up this way. It's really re-stoked me as far as practicing goes.
I know you all care so much.
That looks real nice! Is that organ in the background sweet also?
