    Super High Gain Pickups

    They are not for everyone but I love them! There’s something about a pick up with more gain, it’s the way it grabs the note and really pulls it out. For most players they are too smooth and lack tonal coloration from the guitar itself. One of my favorite tones is Vivian Campbell’s tone on...

    Traded my 2011 Gibson Les Paul Traditional straight up for this 1996 PRS CE22. I've had two SE PRS's that I kept for a couple of weeks and traded those off, but they were the imports, not the USA model like this one.

    Donner Guitar Strings - super cheap, um, inexpensive I mean.

    $10.99 for a 5 pack. If you go through strings like I do, it would be nice to save some bucks. I've been paying $12- $18 a pack for high quality strings but they don't last more than a week (25 hr.s +/-) so I'm going to try these and if they're not bad, I'll stock up. Is there any other cheapo...

    Alex Lifeson gives all his guitars away! I think this is a great idea, although I would never do it. This is so selfless and generous of him and really the right thing to do, I couldn’t do it. Fuck that, no fucking way.

    I loving Yngwie, but I could only watch a couple of minutes of this. He’ll be headed this way so I’ll go see him again, it’s a lot better in person.

    DR Black Beauties - coated guitar strings

    First of all, these string are stiff right out of the package like nothing I've seen. They are super straight, stiff, different. They are also very bright sounding, perfect for heavy metal chugging. I like them so much that I bought more today and threw them on my other guitars after playing...

    Non-Boogie tubes in a Boogie?

    I have a quad of 1970 RCA 6l6 tubes that I tested, they tested very strong and matched. So I put them in my boogie 50-50 power amp and I was blown away at the difference. I had to turn down the treble and the volume was perceivably louder. I was overjoyed until I realized, I’m not supposed to...

    Marshall and Boogie together

    I just got my Marshall back from Hopkins Amplification. Dave did a phenomenal job of modifying my amp exactly how I wanted it. I start out a few seconds with the Marshall alone and then switch over to the Boogie alone then I play the two together and I hit the Mimiq pedal. Bedroom volume level...

    Once again, to insulate or not, 4X12 cabinets? It's been debated here before but I'd like to know what you guitarist think? Back insulation only? What type of insulation? The best research I could find leads me to doing the work myself to see what I...
