So should I make the drum track for that song?
Damn, I wanna play lead or rythm guitar! I can play that song with the solo. Too bad you already have guitarists
Awesome. I think we're playing in D standard and maybe some Drop C. For now, I think we're going to do a cover of Death's Crystal Mountain, which is in D standard. There are some pretty good tabs on this site.
"firstname.lastname@example.org" is my email.
I don't generally use IM or anything else
okay guys give me some emails or some im names or something
I play in D Standard and Drop C mostly, so that's not a problem. My writing style is a combination of newer Death (think Sound of Perseverance) with some melodeath mixed in. I listen to a lot of Iron Maiden, so I do emphasize harmony, but not as heavily as a band like In Flames. I'll try to upload some stuff by the end of the week.
Another key is knowing how sound projects and testing it out for yourself. The way I have mine setup is where my wife can be asleep in the next room over and I can still play it on 2-3. And it only has about a 15-30 feet projection outside on 3-4 which is where my volume normally sits during the day. So being my neighbor is 30 feet away and we both own brick homes. He would have to be outside in the projection range to even make it out. So inside its dead quiet, allowing him to not have any kind of issues even with me playing at 2-3 at midnight.
The key is knowing your rig and how loud it is at certain volumes. I got my wife outside and told her to stand next to the guys house and I would play with the amp facing different directions at the desired volume. Then she came in and relayed the data. Then I worked at sound proofing the door a bit not to bother her.
So in the end everyone is happy and I can play at my desired volume. Even running a 120 watt halfstack at a volume of 3 with earplugs at midnight with no complaints.
dude 3 guitars could be ****ing badass... if we don't over do it. So do you have any demos to send out? or gp5 files? I'd like to get a feel for what kind of band this would be (like more german tech or american tech or melodic or w/e) AND PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can we play in either Drop C (preferable) or D standard? I have a floyd rose and oh god i don't want to have to change my set up
I have a 100w Valveking 212 and I am selling it soon because it is just too loud.
Nice amps. I can't actually mic up a cab because I live in a college dorm
I was thinking about doing a cover just to get a feel for the whole online band collaboration. Is anybody willing to do Crystal Mountain - Death?
It'd be really awesome if it wasn't some fruity blue color. But whatever floats your boat, Happy New Guitar Day I guess...
a solid state 100w amp isnt that loud but as far as 100w tube amps go you need to have neighbors with a tolerance for shaking walls.
Modded XXX + Recto Cab +JJ's = win
yeah, the xxx/3120 sounds like sh*t stock
i can tell you the secrets
use jj 12ax7 or ecc83 for pre amp tubes, this amp is too bright
it is versatile enough
any good cab with v30s or a similar eminence
also, the eqs are tricky at first, there is too much of everything on tap and it is a mid beast
Answer me these questions three:
Question the first: Would a Peavey XXX be good for getting a old-school metalcore type tone, as well as the versatility to do cleans, as well as blues-style distortion and High-gain leads?
Question the second: If the answer to question one is yes, how easy is it to mod the faceplate?
Question the third: What Cab would compliment the XXX nicely for getting the tones provided above?
I like it
Ambient to me is:
By the way, I've been meaning to ask, but what is the difference between an Active EQ and a regular EQ? Like, sound differences, technical differences, etc.
a british tube wont fit i think.
and how far down? down to the lower half of the torso?
PS: that's sorta the style of music I always write, sort of ambient...something. Sometimes I have heavy driving guitars but, not often xD sorta Porcupine Tree, I guess. But less D minor scale...
Would a Peavey XXX head be good for a sound similar to that of the 6505/5150?
Or what are some alternatives to the 6505/5150 for metal/hardcore like Misery Signals, Shai Hulud, Architects, etc.?
"ambient demo", working with my new POD. any advice?
Ill start. i never turn the tone and volume knobs to 10.
If you must get a head and cab, look on eBay for the following:
1. Peavey Ultra Plus
2. Crate GT3500H Shockwave
3. Ampeg VH140c
4. Ampeg SS140c
5. Peavey XXX
6. Peavey VTM
7. Peavey Ultra
8. Red Bear MK60
9. Sovtek MIG
10. Peavey Butcher
And then an Avatar or Vader 2x12.
