    Indecision For Appropriate Bridge Pickup

    Not that I don't like the bridge pickups in my two Les Pauls, but both guitars' bridge pickups (while being matched to their respective neck pickups) could produce a little more oomph when it comes to pushing my Dark Terror lunchbox amp. One guitar has the Duncan Seth Lovers measuring 7.2k and...

    Your Preference In Les Paul Neck Pickup Tone?

    I realize the question revolves around the type of music you play and with what types of amps you like for that music. Is neck pup tone more important over a Les Paul bridge pickup, to you? Should the neck be warm, full, bright or thin in your assessment of what you prefer? I never have...

    Burstbucker I & II Ideal Height?

    I know that loads of Les Pauls, including Historics have been sold with this pair of Burstbuckers. For those owners who still have them, where aboutouts did you set their heights for optimal tone for all three switch positions? Was the type of amp you use a factor in the decision? I have mine...

    Orange Terror Owners Compare Your Own

    I'm loving my Dark Terror with both of my Lesters and have the chance to perhaps get (used) a Bret Hines Terror or a Jim Root #4 model. Each of these I have seen with attractive used prices. For those that own the Dark Terror, which of the two I'm contemplating would you say might be a good fit...

    October 27, 2000 Les Paul Classic Purchase

    A fateful day for yours truly because it was my 1st. Les Paul. It is #005465 Honeyburst Classic which I still own and play. I came upon its original documentation that came with the guitar including my sales receipt. The checklist was included of course, but in reading it I'm wondering what...

    Traditional Date Stamp Confusion

    My 2018 Les Paul Traditional has this for a stamped number on headstock rear: 180062259. Several sites show conflicting information, but as best I can determine, the guitar is a 2018 Nashville production with a ”production # 6225”. I’m not sure that this info. is accurate, but I wanted to find...

    Justify Expensive EL84 Tubes For Your Amp...

    Do any of you El84-based amp devotees believe in expensive power tubes? I don't gig and prefer just to play or practice at home. My amp of choice (my only tube amp) is an Orange Dark Terror; a 7/15 watt high gain amp. My Last two pairs of EL84 power tubes have been 7189 type and rather...

    Burstbucker 1 & 2 Pickup Heights For Middle Position Tone

    I have them as the stock pickups in my '18 Traditional and I do like the sound of each individually, but struggle to adjust them for a “honky” middle position tone a'la Jimmy Page. No, I don't expect to cop his exact tone for obvious reasons, but would like to improve the middle position tone so...

    Double Humbucking Pickup Guitars That Sound Almost Acoustic

    Almost being the keyword here....what are the properties that a humbucking pickup must have in conjunction with the solid body guitar it is mounted on to produce almost an acoustic sound? The sound much like a resonant acoustic guitar being strummed? Only once in my years of playing electric...

    Orange Two Stroke & Orange Amps?

    I'm contemplating getting this pedal which is based on parameters of a parametric e.q. pedal; supposedly similar in nature to a recording studio board e.q. I use an Orange Dark Terror and none of the OD pedals I look at seem to “enhance” the Terror's gain. I would prefer adjusting the “shape”...

    MXR Micro Amp As A Pickup Booster

    I've been reviewing the MXR Micro Amp as a means of boosting my Les Paul bridge Burstbucker II. I use the Les Paul with both BB 1 and 2 into a gainy Orange Dark Terror. I love the gain tones from this amp and set it so that my BB1 can do a “clean” and the midddle and bridge positions handle...

    Burstbucker II Idea Height?

    I've got my Traditional dialed in for great tone from its Burstbucker I neck pickup; no worries there. My bridge BB II however is a bit f a challenge, especially on the high-e or 1st. string side. It seems it sounds a bit harsh to me. That 1st string side height is a tiny less than a nickel's...

    Parity Volume & OD/Distortion/Boost Pedals

    Since my purchase of an Orange Dark Terror two you years ago, I've been using the amp's gain stages to get a great “clean“ and my idea of what a gainy amp should sound like. In contemplating whether I should try a clean boost of some sort or perhaps an OD pedal, I'm wondering how most of you...

    Your Current OD For Orange Terror Amp’s

    For awhile now, I've been considering adding either an OD or boost of some time to augment my Dark Terror's tone without significantly changing the amp's gain characteristics. Where Orange amps have plenty of low mids without pedals, I'd prefer something that does not add too many extra mids...

    Can A Speaker Actually “Wake Up”?

    And by that I mean are speakers able to exhibit a change in tone that was fine on Tuesday and sound infinitely superior and more tone full the next? The Orange amp that I've been using the past two suddenly sounded louder to my ears so much so that the difference in volume between its 7 watt...

    What Make Of Chorus?

    I just added an MXR Carbon Copy (not the mini bright) to by rig. It's now a Les Paul Trad into an Orange Dark Terror. After experimenting with a molder which offer delay and chorus at the same time, I wonder what chorus pedal would fit well with the Carbon Copy. My criterion are compact, not...

    Zeppelin “For Your Life” Live O2 Concert: Pickup Combination?

    At 2:24 of the video below, Jimmy Page flips his pup selector switch to (apparently) the middle position, and with earbuds in, I can really hear his tone get brighter and that “Page” middle position tone. On his triple-pickup Custom. Which pickups are in play here? Can it be managed on just a...

    2018 Traditional Pot Values?

    My 2018 Les Paul Traditional in appearance is a first rate beauty in Honeyburst and it features Burstbucker 1 and II pickups. The guitar is broad-toned and seems balanced. I'm wondering what the volume pot values are because the tone starts to darken up once I see “9” on the neck volume and...

    Does Anyone Use An E.Q. Pedal As A Clean Boost?

    I have a JoYo Fish N' Chips pedal that has seen little use since day one. I keep reading threads about clean boosts or using an OD pedal as a clean boost. I should think a simple 6-band e.q. pedal would serve the purpose. I am not looking for anything to color my amp's tone; so that's why I...
