General Discussion / Re: Sustain ?
« on: December 30, 2013, 09:26:26 PM »
I would say there's just too many things that affect it, the things I've heard that increase sustain is hilarious!

I would imagine the body and neck joint being very important, due to the strings being anchored to "the guitar"

Then i would say that the bridge would make a huge difference, you always hear about how guys upgrade their strat saddles and trem blocks to stell as it resonates better than that die cast crap and zinc blocks.

3rd i would say that the strings themselves would account for it too.

Rotosound's for the win! ;)

Really cool cover sir, the guitars sound great on it, i'm really surprised this was done on just an Ipad!

Keep it up!

Hey there, some great guitars lined up there, i had the chance to play one of the lower Alexi 200's once. it sounds good for that 'All Balls" sound! was strange having such a simple control lay out though! 

Have you checked out Chapman guitars by any chance? they make some nasty axes!! very versatile and kick ass!

I always use a cloth on my strings after playing, as i believe it lets the strings last longer, which is a good thing right!? :P And occasionally i shall very strategically use a small bicycle pump i have, to blow out the dust in the bridge and under the strings on the headstock too! works a treat!

keep on playing!   ;D

Hey there guys,

Was wondering if you would care to listen to one of my tracks that I'm thinking of bringing to a 3-piece band project I'm working on.

Any feedback would be most helpful!

Cheers!  ;D

Guitar Gear & Equipment Reviews / Digitech Digidelay
« on: October 15, 2013, 09:24:57 PM »
The DigiDelay is an awesome pedal from the Gods at Digitech with multiple modes, controls, and some other pretty cool features too!

Features:

 Up to 4 seconds of delay
   
 7 different delay types plus Tap Temp
   
 Stereo outputs with switchable CITâ„¢ Cabinet Modeling


Sound Samples:
http://www.digitech.com/en/products/digidelay#

 with the 4 seconds of delay usable in this box of dreams, you can get an array of different sounds, whether it be simple lead tone colouring, funk slap echo, Hank Marvin Strat tape, to Dave Gilmour ambient like tones!

There are 7 different types of delay at your disposal with this bad boy and they are as follows!

1.-3. Are Digital delays of different times so you can accurately get the sound you want by fine tuning with the Time and Repeat knobs.

4. For all the retro enthusiasts out there, included is an authentic Tape Reel Delay which sounds awesome! for Jimmy Page use and Classic Rock Solo Tones this is for you! with a high Mid lead tone, you get some fierce backing for your favorite licks and runs. 8)

5. Here is one of my favorites which is the Mod-Delay. A very creative tool indeed, it is essentially a hybrid of Digital Delay, mixed with a thick Dreamy chorus to make a very nice effect indeed. Great for any clean chord work that needs some magic, or some very sweet soling and volume swells (John Petrucci fans! :D). This effect sounds great with Alex Lifeson (Rush) playing, Steve Howe (Asia) and almost anything Prog Rock and Progressive.

6. Reverse, now this truly is a whacky effect. There really is no "proper" way of using it, it really does lend itself to the users creativity. it basically replicates what you just played backwards! which sounds pretty cool with short chords or riffs, and when doing your favorite licks, it just makes you laugh seriously! could work well with  lot of more modern electronic music, but just remember that with this effect the awesomeness is in the beholder!

7. Finally here we have our Loop function, it has a 4- second looper which gives you just enough time for a chord progression to jam over if that's your thing, is great for teaching, if you need a backing chord to play a run over, or a rhythm to keep to. But more interestingly if you perform solo, you can use the looper to added some little colorings and percussion Looped to go with your performance, and this works great as you can keep overdubbing the loop to add more parts etc. a great tool for the creative guitarist indeed.

Overall this pedal is Packed full of great features, and incredible sounds for the price, it is easily one of the best pedals Ive ever owned. incredibly useful, versatile, and a lot of fun to mess around with by experimenting with the controls. I Recommend that you get in-store and try one of these out if you can find one as you won't be disappointed!

Thanks a bunch

The Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner. Where can I start!? its a brilliant piece of kit and here's why!

http://www.planetwaves.com/pwProductDetail.Page?ActiveID=4115&productid=592

Features:

    Built-in piezo transducer picks up instrument’s vibration rather than sound
    Improved software for faster response and improved accuracy
    Tri-color reversible backlit LCD screen makes it easy to tune in dark environments while allowing mounting in front or behind headstock
    Wide calibration range (410Hz to 480Hz) and visual metronome
    Compact design blends into the aesthetics of instrument while adding considerably less weight than other headstock tuners
    Tunes acoustic and electric guitars, basses, mandolins, banjos and other stringed instruments

These features make a simple yet effective tuner that works well for any guitarist's tuning needs on stage, in the bedroom, or even on Brighton beach in front of the waves like me if that's your thing!

I really want to emphasize here how tiny and awesome it looks that it can fit snug onto any Guitar, Bass, and even Uke headstock with ease, and no chance of falling off if your jumping around and headbanging.

The Flip Button is great as you can turn the display upside down if you like the tuner underneath your headstock where its out of the way, or on top where you can show off this tiny piece of awesomeness!

This tuner also has a great feature that allows you to activate a metronome with adjustable Tempo, allowing you to practice your chops and rhythm without annoying your buddies or the people around you! i also found that a visual metronome compared to a sound one is pretty cool as it allows you to visually follow a groove say if your onstage with your drummer and your in ear monitors cut out!!!!

The tuner uses an easy to read display that follows:

Red (Out of tune)   :o
Yellow (Nearly there)  ::)
Green (Nice One!)  :tup:

All in all this is a great tuner for anyone that needs something that's simple to use, reliable, pocket sized, and great for the price (Perfect for poor students!  ;) )

I Recommend that everyone should give these a go and see what you think, you won't regret it! will be interested to see what you guys think.

Thanks a bunch

Amplifiers / Re: Guitar through Bass amp
« on: September 24, 2013, 09:56:43 AM »
its a tough question, i would imagine that bass speakers would be able to take alot more, then guitar speakers, so i can't imagine them getting any bad damage no? also didn't countless guitarists used to love the big fat cleans of the old Fender Bassman amp? and i tried my Tele through an old Vox Escort Valve Bass amp, and it sounded beautiful, very fat and punchy ahhaa, just wish i still had it!

haha yes I totally agree. the sound from those amps at low volumes are amazing, they don't seem to lack the oomph like other amps, they just sound natural at any volume. and the USB features look very useful too! Looks like your going to have to break the budget and get one to review on the site for us lot then!  ;)

Tried one in store with my Tele, sounded really soft and atmospheric, loved the sound, but as you said before. lack of money made me dismiss from the amp room! ;D
