it would not be advisable. you are kinda doing the same thing by touching them with a pencil. if the tube was vibrating then when you touch it with a pencil it would either stop or the sound would significantly change while you were holding the pencil on it. so i don't see much benefit in pulling the tubes.

i am a bit unsure if you would actually damage anything though. i wouldn't be too concerned about removing the preamp tubes, but i am not sure about the power amp tubes.

Im new to all this and had a few questions about heads and speakers/cabs. Ive been researching online and on YouTube and ive found that for the sound and tone i want is a peavey 6505 head and the Orange closed back cab 212. I aslo have a washburn xm with the floyd rose special. So the sounds im trying to get is is anywhere from classic rock to metal chunky stuff. I also enjoy my acoustic guitar i have a wide range of music i enjoy. But my question is would that cab and that head get me what i want? And also wich speakers would give me that fat chunky squaling tones to the bluesy southern rock/ pink floyd range? Thanks

I have to replace the holder block on my Ibanez Edge zero tremolo, now I'm just wondering there seems to be a lot of holder blocks with different names out there, are they all the same? Would it work if I picked up a edge II holder block because I cant seem to locate an edge zero block anywhere! Or should I just look into getting a new saddle?

Now go to a music store and try them - that's the only way to know if they do sound like what you want.

Probably.
Eminence v12 or WGS v30 maybe?

a 6505 is going to be more aimed at those heavier tones. not a problem if that's what you mainly play. if you play a genuine 50:50 mixture, though, there might be better options. EDIT: same thing with the speakers, it depends on whether you want a genuine mix or if you mainly play one but occasionally want the other.

i'm not sure exactly what you're talking about, but i imagine you need the right one. have you looked on ibanez rules? it has a list of all the parts and part numbers of ibanez parts.

Besides a Pedaltrain Pro, anyone know any good 30+ inch pedalboards that can accommodate a power strip on the underside? I need to put my HD500 and amp footswitch next to each other :/ Damn Laney and their 9 inch long footswitches.

i only know myself, not you. but i really wouldn't bother much with just an
MFX unit and a foot switch. most people have 5-10+ pedals on the board.

honestly i would rather travel with the POD and pod in a bag.

I'm getting an OD in the mail soon as well and it would just be easier and neater to have them all on a board. I was going to run a power strip underneath with a 1 Spot and the POD power supply. OD before the amp, POD in the FX loop.

Necks and boards are laterally longitudinally symmetrical right?

So a reverse headstock is essentially just a lefty neck, markings and logos notwithstanding?

some guitars have asymmetrical necks, though. musicman is the one that springs to mind.

Ah yeah of course, and Parker stuff. Just reading up on it now it sounds like it's more common than I realised. Apparently Gibson has a few models kicking around with it.

Reason for my question was a project idea I'm toying with that involves a reverse Strat head. Figure I'll just pick up a Mighty Mite lefty or something similar.

Just an idea atm - based loosely on this sexy mongrel http://www.thomann.de/gb/jackson_sa...ed_white_mn.htm

A strat neck has a symmetrical heel. Just replace the nut and you're right to go.

^^ no worries, just checking you were aware of it. the fact that most makers who use the asymmetrical neck make a pretty big deal of it would suggest that symmetrical is the more usual shape... though with all marketing things that might be reading too much into it.
