Re: Axe-mas Came!!!!

Congrats on the new Axe! The 2nd best part was that they came down in price enough to match my gift, so I didn't spend any money. $150 out the door. That's hard to believe! The Guitar Center in my area won't budge on anything. :( The GM of the one down here said they were bought out and that the ne...

Re: Re-Stringing Questions

I change all the strings at one time on every guitar I own/work on, regardless of the bridge. Won't hurt a thing.

Re: muting with distortion

Almann, you state that it sounds good at bedroom volumes but not cranked. As stated by David, be carefull of the headphones. If you are using a tube amp then maybe an attenuator is in order as you can get that cranked tube tone without the volume, however you will not get that cranked speaker sound....

Re: Going thru a "bummed out" period...

Kat man(do :lol: ), as everyone else has posted, we all go through it. I completely feel your pain on playing partners. I have the same issue. Any chance you live near Vegas? I just went through exactly what you went through. New cool toys and zero ambition. My latest cure?!?! I started to listen to...

Re: My attenuator build...LOTS OF PICS 56K BEWARE

Hey all, I want to update this for the forum and google if it spiders this site. The schematics for the line out circuit are incorrect. It will not hurt anything if you build it that way and actually may work just fine if your amp is pushing 200w and cranked. I'm using this on a 15w Blackheart and i...

Re: My attenuator build...LOTS OF PICS 56K BEWARE

Hey guys, glad you are watching. Had a glitch(OK, bad wiring job), took a bit to figure out the switch. Yeah, I know, its a simple circuit, but man, it kicked my butt. Yeah, it works killer. Maybe too iller, as I've pushed my new amp to its limits. Yup, I'm on the verge of killing the stock tubes. W...

Re: It sounded like a big fart so I got GAS

Wow, I love it. Still playing with the settings, the attenuator, and OD pedal. It certainly will do classic rock very well. Makes my Valveking sound like its playing, burried in a large puddle of of mud. To bad about the Valveking. I thing if they would have stuck a bias pot in there, some el84's(be...

It sounded like a big fart so I got GAS

Well after 78 days of waiting for my Peavey Valveking then getting it back, it sounded like a big fart. I tried every trick under the sun to get this thing to sound good(really sounded like a normal Valveking). Anyway, not going into the hell I went through to get it back, but just wasn't my sound. ...
