  1. Thanks for all the help guys. I will definitely play around and see what happens
  2. Hey guys, quick question about the addition/use of pedals. Right now, I am playing out of a JCM 800 with a 4x12 ; no FX Loop. Now I only use a chorus and Overdrive (sometimes) in the mix for that. I recently acquired some new pedals which I may throw in the loop for fun and see what happens. For example a delay pedal. I've been told in the past there are certain pedals that should be run through the back of the amp or the FX Loop, and if I ran these pedals in the front it would need to be on clean settings via my JCM 800. Is there any truth to this or can I run everything in the front? Thanks!
  3. Looks identical. Unfortunately I do not have the sticker your picture is showing. Any idea what I could sell my cabinet for?
  4. The rating on the back is for 100w. The sticker says in full, "Marshall 1960 Lead 100W" So that would make these 25's?
  5. The cab is a JCM 800 Lead Series Cabinet. It was given to me so I couldn't tell you if these were always in there or came stock
  6. That's weird I thought I attached a picture. Sorry. I will attach now!
  7. Anyone know what speakers these are?

  9. I can but with Audacity I can slow parts of the song down and loop certain parts to learn better.
  10. Anyone here use Audacity? Trying to learn a bunch of ACDC songs but their tunings are a little off. I use Audacity but am having trouble adjusting or changing the pitch. Is there a way through Audacity or another program I can just change the song to Eb and be done with it? I have to get these songs in Eb because that's what the cover band plays.

  12. Ok guys great news! Slacking the strings and turning the thumb posts of the tuneomatic bridge counterclockwise worked!
  13. Well I had not changed my strings in awhile on my Sg and knew it was time. But I was foolish and took them all off at once. While I was cleaning my guitar both my tailpiece and tune-o-metic bridge fell off as I moved the guitar around. So Im guessing the tuneomatic bridge had some pieces move around and I am going to try what Surfpup told me to do. But moving forward, changing one string at a time means "Take the low E off, put the low E on but don't tighten it all the way. Then do the same for the A,D,G,B,E?"
  14. Cool, thanks but just to be completely sure, we are talking about the thumbwheels in the below picture? http://www.epiphone.com/News-Features/News/2011/Understanding-The-Epiphone-LockTone-Stopbar-Tune-o.aspx Same thing right? How much should I slack the string?
  15. The bridge adjustment posts being the two objects that hold the tune-o-matic in place? One on each side?
  16. Hello everyone, Went to change the strings on my SG this evening and did (believe I did) everything properly. However, there is buzzing all over and it even feels like the action is lower. I tried using the Tune-o-Matic bridge with screws facing the bottom and then tried the top. Do I just need to bring it in for another setup? I did not change string gauge or try to tune differently. Any info. is greatly appreciated!
  17. Hey guys, so building off the Rhythm Guitar Rig thread I started recently, I had brought my JCM 800 to rehearsal and it sounded really nice. However, I was using the studios cabinet which had Vintage 75 speakers in it. I believe mine has 25 Watt Greenbacks which I do not really like the sound of to be honest. Especially after playing through the 75's. My head also uses EL34's for tubes and I would like to make the switch to 6550's unless you guys suggest something else. So I am all ear. In terms of speakers and tubes because I know there are many brands out there, where do I look first? What am I looking for ? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  19. I have a used 2011 SG standard. got it for $800 on Craigslist. Plays wonderful. Has the classic 57 hum buckers which sound nice. A nice setup/good intonation and you are good to go. Only problem is (and i don't know if its from the guitar specifically or the tech just did a bad job at intonation) but my G string is always a little off. I usually have to tune it a little bit flatter than all the other strings so it sounds nice.
  20. I was thinking about adding a clean boost as well as my OD. But I always thought the clean boost had to go behind the amp. I definitely want the tuner pedal to cut the signal, and a chorus. I want to say a Randy Rhoads sound would be nice for the rhythm aspect of what we play. I almost want to bring my Line 6 modeling amp but I feel like it's just not the same as a tube. Not the same response/feel. i think an EQ pedal could really help, but I don't know much about them so I need to do research. Probably would help a lot if I got a 4 speaker cab instead of 2. And some better tubes. I think that would make a huge difference...
  21. Well, this is all great information. I am fairly new to this. Not guitar but being able to play live. It's so much fun! I definitely want to get a tuner to cut the signal. My lead guitarist was saying a chorus would definitely help. Maybe I am just not experienced enough to dial in the right tone with my JCM 800 yet. I use a SG standard with classic humbuckers keep in mind. Sometimes I wonder if I need better tubes and speakers. The OD pedal definitely helps, but as for jamming when I am by myself I can not get a good lead tone out of the amp. It's too bright even with treble and presence rolled back. What extra benefit would be gained from adding both an OD and a tube screamer? Like I said I am new so any info is greatly appreciated!
  22. Hey guys, so a few weeks ago I posted about my first Rhythm Guitar audition and i Ended up getting the gig. Thanks for everyone reaching out. My next question comes down to my setup and having a great rhythm sound. We practice out of a rehearsal studio that provides equipment, but I want to start using my JCM 800 because I know that's what I'll be using at gigs eventually. All I have for it is a Boss Super Overdrive. We play classic hard rock covers/80s tunes/90s tunes, the likes... I want to hear opinions on what other pedals I should get to improve my sound. Also, what could I get that would help my lead tone for when I am just jamming by myself? Keep in mind I have no FX Loop so everything needs to be in front of the amp. Let me know thanks!

  24. Hey Stein, thanks for the advice. It makes perfect sense that Rhythm is of utmost importance. That is the reason I wanted this gig. It helps me contribute to the music more by learning new ways to play rhythms. I do also want to get my leads up by tenfold so I make that a priority as well. Also, thanks Kelly!
