Been a while since I last posted here. Anyway, let me get right down to it. I recently purchased a 7 string Schecter Hellraises FR. Plays like a dream honestly, but that's beside the point. The strings it came with were .09s. Now I don't particularly hate them, but I much prefer 0.10s. So now, the time has come to change my strings, and here's my question. Upon switching from .09 to .10, what adjustments would I have to make to my guitar? Truss rod adjustment, bridge adjustment, etc... And how would I go about making said changes?
I'm planning on getting a PRS Custom 24 sometime soon (for graduation). I've tried the guitar, and fell in love with it. But I haven't had enough time to actually be able to tell how good the stock pickups are. I was just wondering if the pickups would be good for something in the general area of GnR, Slash, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and maybe a bit of Megadeth.
If the pickups aren't able to pull that off, could anyone tell me of a different set of pickups that could do the job? Passives are preferred, and nothing too expensive (100$ per pickup)
Basically, you get what you pay for. A line 6 spider is just a cheap practice amp for those who can't afford a better amp And as long as you don't go around comparing it to other amps 10 times its price, it shouldn't sound that horrible to you. Off course it'll sound crap next to any half decent tube amp, but in my opinion I don't find it to be absolutely horrible
ive been practicing some megadeth lately, and my EQing seems horrible for megadeth sounds too bassy, and too muddy im pretty sure its not my strings, theyre E standard tuning, and .11 so muddiness cant be from them
so if anyone could help me a bit with the EQing, id really appreciate it
i have a blackstar ht-5, and while that does get the job done for house practice, im looking for something with more power for gigging.
i want something that could pull of the heaviest metal (children of Bodom, Dark tranquility, lamb of God) and something less heavy (dio, black sabbath, metallica) while still being able to play some classic rock (led zeppelin, GNR, Slash, ACDC). Also i would like it to have decent cleans, but thats not a huge issue
Budget is around 1500 USD (just for the head). Cant go any higher as im already working my butt off for that amount of cash.
i realize im asking too much for an amp like that with a budget like that, but it doesnt have to be perfect, just being able to do those things satisfactorily will be good enough for me
nah dude, id never buy a multieffects unit. my friend has it. i could buy a bad monkey or something, its like 70$ here in lebanon, which isnt that much more than what it costs in teh states. i do have a crappy boss OS-2 i think, could that work?
yeah :/ the thing is, i dont have a neck pickup, never thought id use it, and it sounds pretty good on the bridge. off course with a neck pup it would be better, but still. I just need help with the settings, thanks tho
yes....get it.....dont play at max volume, and yes you will not get the most out of it...but it will sound the same as any other amp at low levels....and always good in case you start gigging in future
