Also check out the Bugera V5. Selectable wattage, onboard reverb, and a headphone out... I really like mine.

Dover Court- Free Album Download!

Dover Court looks like a traditional three piece rock band. Looks can be deceiving. With a sound that can switch from biting snark, to sweet sentimentality, to deranged and psychadelic, to huge,...

Good points- Thanks guys! I've actually heard back from one venue now, tentatively- feeling a little better about things now.

No, I understand. I was tired when I first read it- I was up til 5 with a newborn this morning. Impending fatherhood is part of why I let the social media presence slip as much as I have. I'm also a...

Hey guys,

So I've been trying to line up some shows, as my band's first album is currently being mastered. I've sent out 7 emails so far- the only one to get back to me quickly let me know that...

Contamination-

Quite a heavy track! Very nice guitar tone, and the feel definitely fits the genre you're shooting for. I will say that I'm not huge on instrumentals (I am a vocalist first and...

Very nice, sir. The guitar parts complement each other quite nicely, while being distinct enough that I could follow each part. It has a very mellow vibe, although on some of those bends you got a...

If you hadn't mentioned you were using condensers, I wouldn't have known what to tell you on your mix concern, but now that I know it's painfully obvious, to me.

Hey Oli!

Very nice! And especially good for a first attempt- I've been playing with recording for the last year and a half and I'm envious.

Has she expressed interest or admiration of your pedal board? You could help her set one up. Even a scrap plywood and velcro chunk of ugly would do the trick.

Not bad! It's definitely old school punk. The production fits the style quite well- I think most listeners would have a hard time telling, if it were placed against some of the quintessential...

Soundtrack, while it's been said, was the first thing that popped into my head too. It's a very ambient piece- it doesn't demand attention, but it does grab it. It's very evocative of that moment in...

What kind of PA support will you have? A guitar amp, as has been said, is very directional. Rather than an additional cab or a new amp, if you can mic your amp, I would. It's much better for the...

Ampeg B3158- New to bass amps, how hard can I push this thing?

I recently picked up an Ampeg B3158, like the title says. I'm not much of a bass player, and most of my experience is with tube amps, not solid state. Right now I've got the Gain set between 1/3 and...
