    NGD: 2011 R9

    Many years since I bought a Gibson CS Les Paul Reissue, and then somehow (@flameburst... ;)) found myself drawn to a 2011 R9 with a weird and mis-matched top, and in a relatively unusual colour called Paradise Burst. Kind of like a watermelon cherry, and not obvious from these pics, but with a...

    Anyone here got a Fractal FC-6 or FC-12 yet?

    Question as per title - I honestly cannot remember when I got my Axe FX III, must be best part of 2 years ago, and it has not done a single gig. The reason? Didn't set up a foot controller for it yet. So, strangely, I have had a long period of using the Axe FX III at home, but for the occasional...

    Anyone talked about IRs just lately? Marshall/Celestion content.

    I hadn't bought any IRs for a long time, maybe 3 years, but had downloaded a few cheapies, and "borrowed" some from friends that I would have bought if I had liked, but for some reason a few days ago I got to thinking... Of all my favourite IRs so far, most had come from the Fractal shop, and...

    (O)NGD. Recent '92 LP Special purchase

    Been a while since I posted on the most important sub-forum, but just have to share one of my recent favourites. I had one new in 1995, sold in '96 or '97, and then had various abortive attempts at finding my way back (later model was not for me). A reissue of a guitar that was never made, with...

    What with all the LP Specials around here...

    ...meet my '57, Biohazard, which I have posted a long time back, but has just been given a new lease of life with MojoAxe bridge. Always played really nicely, with a low action and good intonation, but had slight sitar tendencies, and never got played enough because of them. Also the bridge...

    P90 Comparison - OX4 and Duncan

    Finally found some good sounding P90s for my '55 GT replica. Previously had a pair of Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Antiquities in the guitar, which are great, but sound more like late 50's P90s. SDs are not quite stock - neck pickup magnets swapped for A4. Bridge pickup is shimmed up by 4mm for...

    For those thinking about home recording...

    Just some random thoughts from an occasional lurker on this sub-forum that has done a little bit of home recording over the last few years. Some of it has worked well, some of it hasn't, but will try to stick with the positive. Focusrite Scarlett 6i6: Actually seemed like a mistake initially...

    Active monitors for home

    I know this has been done before, but I don't think very recently, and I could really use some input to get an idea if I'm being realistic here. I currently use a fairly old hi-fi system in my music room for listening to music (vinyl, cassette :O and CD) and monitoring some home recording. A&R...

    What do I think of the effects in the Axe FX II XL?

    Probably no further explanation needed than this... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122330851056?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Wish I had space to keep it :(, because it's a truly wonderful thing, but the Axe does all that and so much more. Liam

    Headphones again!

    There was a thread about this a while back, but we've all moved on a bit since then. Headphones for setting up modeling amp without destroying marriage or neighbourly relations: Beyerdynamic DT100s have been great for mid detail, and highs not too bad, but I want a pair of closed or...

    Let's talk about laptops...

    Before anyone moves this thread, I know it's not necessarily about modeling, but this sub-forum is where the opinions that mean the most will probably come from. I'm a long term PC/MS user that occasionally dabbles in Linux. I have no Apple experience. I want a laptop that I can use in my...

    Axe FX II causes OADs

    So Frank no longer has New Amp Days, but I have surprised myself by sticking no less than 4 amps and a 4 x 12 cabinet on the 'bay today. Didn't feel too painful, so I think the modeling deal might actually be working quite well on me! Going to try to move on 5 items a week for the...

    NPFXPD - Axe-FX II

    New Preamp and FX Processor day, or at least new to me although it's about a year old. Thought I'd start a new thread to share the journey on, and I'm expecting (hoping) the story will run for a while. I am a dyed in the wool tube guy, owning maybe 10 tube amps (probably more) that has been...

    Where to start with high end modeler

    Before I start - if you don't like the idea of modeling amps, please ignore this thread rather than contributing to it. Like many around here, I have a number of tube combos, some amp heads, and some cabs. I also use either one or 2 effects on the floor, or for bigger gigs (which are...

    65 Amps Whiskey incoming

    Daft world this is... A couple of months ago I was trying to get my hands on a 65 Amps Whiskey to listen to, and they were REALLY hard to find in the UK, and kind of expensive to import, and I gave up and bought an Orange Rockerverb MkIII. Which I love, and still haven't done a loud gig with...

    Orange vs. Marshall

    I'll make this question as brief as I can, because it could easily turn into a long one. I'm a long term Marshall user, and I like the classic brit rock voiced amps of the 70s. Got a couple of JMP 2203s, also have a 50 watt JMP bass converted to a 1987. And I also have a Bluesbreaker reissue...

    Unusual Epiphone Les Paul 7 string

    One of mine, and posting here because it's not something I'd seen another example of. Anyone know anything about these? I've seen very few, but no others in this colour. Nice guitar - but too many strings.:naughty: Epiphone Les Paul 7 String, Cherry Sunburst Flame Top | eBay...

    Strymon Timeline opinions needed

    Let's start off with: I can't try a Strymon Timeline locally, and I have a low opinion of the merits of trying stuff out in shops anyway, so I'm not going to head out to find one to try out. My favourite delays tend to be tape echo, but they are a PITA to gig with regularly. My RE-201 got sold...

    Dinosaural OPA-101

    Hey all, Haven't posted anything about effects for a while, but need to share a story: I've been a big fan of Lovetone pedals since the mid-90s, and at the beginning of last week noticed ex-Lovetone designer Dan Coggins was producing pedals again. Just one in the range so far, but given my...

    Fuelie Custom Wind for a "difficult" Doubleneck

    Hey All, Haven't posted a review (or much else) for a while. Mainly because I don't have any interest in saying other than nice things, and I don't get to see that much that really floats my boat since I got bitten by the vintage and replica bug. Too spoilt for words I guess. Anyhow, been...
