  1. Hey guys. I’m wondering if you have any resources or advice on how to track down and eliminate buzz in an old acoustic guitar I have a 1952 Martin which sounds and plays great. Only problem is that something is buzzing on the guitar. I have a lot of tools and am generally a very capable DIYer, but should I just take this to a luthier or is this something that can be easy to fix? thanks in advance for any help
  2. 😱 my tube based flanger and delay are sure to be obsolete, and neither even have an “extreme” mode The headrush definitely has my tube looper doomed
  3. I built and biased/tested another pair of the KM84 clones this weekend. This pair has less expensive 3U transformers I would love to be playing with these things right now but I’m in the middle of moving and my home recording stuff is packed away at the moment. Will have more time soon!
  4. Tape me down to a pair of nice titties
  5. I must admit I am jealous to see this other pedal with handwritten labels on your board. Who is this imposter and how long has this been going on? I thought we had something special
  6. Big corporations have to use lead free solder which doesn’t flow like 63/37 that we know and love. Actually looks fine considering that but homeboy did burn the insulation a bit. No big deal
  7. I highly recommend it. If you can get a nice straight up copy of one of those early fender amps you’re gonna like it. It’s pretty much everything you like in one setting with one guitar
  8. Rct you should have BBP or someone make you a tweed style fender. You needs it.
  9. Just heard that the audio guru and Groove Tubes founder Aspen Pittman has passed away as a result of a car accident 😿 I’m sure some of you like BBP are familiar with him. He seemed like a great guy. Sad news
  10. I love my 5e3 and twin reverb with any guitar I have
  11. Sounds like a good trade to me. I know Godin is a Canadian brand. Not sure I’ve ever tried one. That looks really nice, love the natural maple
  12. Johan is a good player with a good ear. If you watch his other videos, he can make any piece of gear sound good Personally I like the way they sound but they must be the noisiest pickup ever. They have so much hum I tend to only like them on a very clean amp. The video didn’t change my opinion at all. I liked the p90s clean and thought they were excessively noisy on anything else. Maybe additional shielding could help. I’m a humbucker guy most of the time but everything has its place. I really like what other people do with p90s but I can’t stand the hum myself
  13. I was watching an interview with Steve Albini where he talked about recording Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. He mentioned that Jimmy Page deliberately does not edit or re record mistakes as long as the mistake doesn’t distract from the overall statement he’s trying to make. You can hear this in just about any of the great old players. The Beatles, Stones, even Kenny Burrell. Going slightly off topic I can’t really think of Jimi being in this category. His playing was so fluid I can’t really think of guitar mistakes. But he was known to not be a fan of his voice and he let that go
  14. I’ll be sticking with SIT. https://m.juststrings.com/sit-s1046.html $3.89 a set for the best strings I’ve tried. Just give them a shot, you won’t be disappointed
  15. Looks heavy indeed I was thinking this was gonna be the next evolution of the door.. you just bring home a log and turn it into a guitar 😄
  16. That is ****ing COOL. As far as I know he still owns and operates it. What a cool idea for a studio This was mentioned on another forum and some people added that Joe Walsh recorded Life’s Been Good on a boat and Thomas Dolby has a solar powered boat studio
  17. That thing looks ridiculously nice. Congrats! Love the way the grain kinda goes the opposite direction of the waist. It kinda exaggerates the grain and body shape at the same time.
  18. I was listening to a tape op interview and one guy was talking about recording Don McLean (I think) and said he cut a hole in a sheet of plexiglass and stuck Don’s head through it. Then he had a mic below the sheet for the guitar and a mic above the sheet for vocals. The idea was that he had to do a ton of edits and couldn’t have bleed. Kinda like a dog cone
  19. It’s a reissue of an earlier version of the p90 called the staple pickup
  20. I think I saw Benadryl Cabbagepatch
  21. That does look like a great deal. I’ve played one old Dove and it was the best sounding Gibson acoustic I’ve ever played. I can’t find any pictures but I could swear it had an adjustable bridge.
  22. This is actually really interesting. When I record myself playing acoustic I can always hear my shirt touching the guitar and basically every little movement. I didn’t notice any handling noise in this video. Ive seen Steve Howe (one of my idols) playing acoustic held on a stand as well
  23. I would be overwhelmed and not know what to do.. My gut instinct would be some kind of amazing LP custom, similar to what Tman got recently. But is that really the guitar I would play all the time? I have no idea. I like ME’s idea of the L5
  24. Sure doesn’t look great to me.. The cost of shipping those pallets is going to be considerable. There is no guarantee that all 8 amps aren’t broken or defective. That model amp can be had for $250 or less all day long. Let’s say best case scenario all 8 amps work fine, then you have a pallet of amps to deal with and they’re worth about $2K for the whole lot. That is one of the most desirable looking lots out of the whole thing and it’s not great. I’m probably being too negative but I looked through the auction and it looks like a load of shite
