Tix for King Diamond and Exodus came today, stoked (though from Exodus, only for Toxic Waltz since I think they're ok at best).

Maybe a harmonizer for some parts, if it isn't a pre-recorded overdub. The guitar is distorted. That's pretty much all it could be.

Pondering an amp change

I've a Peavey XXX 212, saw a Mesa DC-5 (112) at my local shop. How well do 50w, 112 combos do compared to 120w 212's (ie, band scenarios)? The DC-5 seemed easier to dial in accurate tones playing by...

I have the same frequency issue on the downtune section of my whammy DT. I notice it strips a bit of distortion, too.

KH202 probably has a fast(er) neck, but it has a Floyd rose. Do you need the use of a trem?

Guess I'll update: The bridge is now in the right position (the strings inexplicably kept going sharp so I was able to lower everything down). Is it bad that the claw is all the way in?

Right now...

Already have it at \l/; I've got 2 more springs but just seeing if I can avoid the hassle of having to detune completely, loosen springs, add spring, re-tune, re-tighten springs.

Right now the trem is pretty far upright, springs about as tight as can get (Screws as far in as they'll go, so claw as far towards the neck). I can't lower the bridge anymore without going lower...

Stringing Floyd Rose from scratch?

I needed to replace the springs for the trem and restring the guitar. What I did was remove all the strings and then do the springs (most likely incorrect in hindsight). While re-stringing I've...

I'd say something with humbuckers, so the used LP should do if...

If you're amp's decent you'll be fine. If not you won't see a leaps and bound difference. Genre wise those pickups should be fine.
