    EQ pedals

    Wondering what you other guys do with this. EQ first in line in effects loop or last in line? Or does it really matter at all since it is a loop? Right now mine is first in line and wondering if it makes a difference to put it after everything. I'm too lazy and tired to experiment because I've...

    Volume box or attenuator?

    The volume box sounds like it would help control the jump in the master volume knob on the amp to dial in a bedroomish volume.... but wouldn't push the power amp tubes. An attenuator may help lower the volume and push the tubes a bit more but not sure how less the loudness of the amp would be...

    Ohm help please!

    Thanks everyone for the help I really appreciate it. A friend of mine called a friend of his at Sweetwater today and said the same about the 5.33 and that running at 4 ohms was ok. There are several reasons for the two 1/12 extension cabs. First I don't have much money to spend on things. I got...

    Ohm help please!

    This is going to sound more complicated than it is I'm sure but here goes. I have a 6505 plus combo and two extension cabinets with one speaker in each. All speakers are 16 ohms. If I am just using the amp speaker of course I have the switch on 16 ohms.... when I added the first extension...

    One amp three cabs all at 16 ohms.... help please!!!!

    I have a 6505 plus combo 1 by 12 that I run into another 16 ohm cab with one Celestion speaker rated at 16 ohms. Of course I set the ohms to 8 for the two. I found a guy selling a 6505 4 speaker half stack cabinet for cheap and wondering if I could put that in the mix? I think it is also 16...

    Plek

    I live in South Carolina. Anyone know where I can go to have my guitar have a time in a Plek machine nearby here? I've looked around but all I see is Nashville. Any help would be appreciated!

    Pinch harmonics

    No I have the pickups mounted direct to the body.... well not direct but glued a long dowel that I fitted and then took long screws that go through the dowel into the body.

    Pinch harmonics

    Not with standard harmonics with open strings no. Just fretted harmonics. Gets worse in the upper register.

    Pinch harmonics

    My frets are very worn and it is a 30 year old guitar and never had a level crown and polish done. Could the flatness of the frets be the culprit?

    Pinch harmonics

    Yea exactly! But I've tried everything. Everything is tight. So irritating!

    Pinch harmonics

    Ok tried that at both the nut and the saddle and still no change. It's like the harmonic just vanishes after less than a second. The fretted not itself rings out fine.

    Pinch harmonics

    Yea I thought about that too because I did put a ceramic 8 in an old Evolution.... but when I put the bridge back on I left the action high and still no difference. I actually listened to it unplugged closely and can still hear it dying fast. My acoustic does a better job! I don't understand. It...

    Pinch harmonics

    I actually did put the old bridge back on and its still the same WTF? Everything is super tight. I put the tone pros studs back in and no change there. The only thing I can think of is the pickup. I've swapped out about 5 over the last month. If I put the bridge pickup out of phase with the neck...

    Pinch harmonics

    No buzz and no choking. I had the guitar for 20 years and its set up perfectly. I have never had this problem until I swapped out the bridge for the tonepros. I can't for the life of me figure this one out.

    Pinch harmonics

    I use lots of gain.... I play through a 6505+. None of my other guitars have this problem. Just an example.... when I play a pinch harmonic at the 15th fret on the B string it just dies within a second. I don't know if the guitar itself has a clashing frequency that cancels them out? I even...

    Pinch harmonics

    For some reason on my Les Paul the higher pinch harmonics fade out fast... really fast and die abruptly. I have a tone pros bridge and can't figure out why this is happening. I changed pickups several times and still doesn't make a difference so I'm thinking its something to do with the bridge...

    Wolfgang pickups

    Thanks Dave. I never even thought about swapping the magnets great idea. You should try the Wolfgang... I got it brand new through a trade and at first I thought the guitar looked more like a cheap toy but damn was I very wrong!

    Wolfgang pickups

    Hi I am just curious and wondering if anyone has tried one of the new evh wolfgang pickups in a Les Paul.... if so I'd like to know the results. I have a wolfgang special and the tone has me hooked. I know it's a completely different guitar but I love the clarity it has and wonder if it could...
