    Alternatives to humbuckers

    Hi all, I’m getting kind of bored with humbuckers and was curious to know what other alternate humbucker-sized pickups you’ve tried to make things more interesting. Years ago I tried some TV Jones powertrons that were pretty cool. anyway any suggestions to mix it up and get some more unique sounds?

    Why do I hate strats? And do I need therapy?

    This is inspired by another thread but maybe someone can fill me in on what I’m missing. jimi is the only guy I’ve ever heard make a stray sound really great. To me they’re always thin, bland and too sproingy. Now I’ve been playing for over 30 years, went to Berklee, played live a ton and...

    Matchless reverb unit

    Recently I picked up a Matchless RV-2 reverb. I'm not too into reverb with amps, but thought I'd also be able to use it in the studio. Good gracious, what a sound. Never liked fender verb units, but this thing is very natural. I've been using it on keys, percussion, vocals, bass, acoustic...

    Tweed deluxe mod

    I've been reading lurking here for some time thought it was about time I contribute something.
