monwobobbo ok I usuall have my EQ set pretty strick on all my amps with treble at 4, bass on 7, and middle on 7 then my volume and gain is pretty fair game depending on my amps I have a master on my thrc that alows me to keep my tone when the volumes set high but I need it quieter, dose the ore gain work the same way as a master
monwobobbo awsome I’ll probly go with the peavy then! I live in a apartment and crank my model thrc10 pretty loud without issues obviously I’d have the classic set at about tv level. If that’s possible
monwobobbo also will it stay realitivly clean like genders tend too? I like how in the video it sounds rather broken up but still clean and not to fuzzy
monwobobbo ok thanks! And I’m looking at the peavy 30 rn and what is the difference between pre amp and post amp gain
I'm getting into playing gigs, (Blues/Rock/Metal) and I got a booster pedal for my solos, but I don't have an effects loop on my amp, what should I do? (easiest way and most affordable)
monwobobbo ok and in the video would you agree he’s using a fulltone octafuzz along with the amp to get that sound? Or is it simply the work of a amp on the verge of breaking up
skylerquinn51 monwobobbo I also belive he’s using a full tone octafuzz on fuzz to help get that tone
monwobobbo would a blues jr get me there?
Yeah, “in theory”. Have you tried using the site search recently? It’s terrible. I’ve resorted to using Google and adding “ultimate guitar“ to my search terms to find anything on the forum.
The real question is what’d you do to go to prison.
I mean, compressed tones are kind of what you expect for metal.
I like the DSL as a legit low cost Marshall with tone. The Concert amp actually came in many versions so the year built matters a lot. Some were totally badass Fenders and some were just ok. Some were kinda lame IMO.
I personally really liked the vintage Concert amp from 1960-1964. The Brownie versions were a lot like the Fender Bassman 4x10, and the Blackface 1964 was much like a Super Reverb sans verb. Downright badass and unlikely found for $500.
Next came the "Rivera" models from 1980-84 known as Concert II. They were Mesa wannbes and they have a cult following but I never liked them. The OD had none of that buttery smooth Mesa tone and the clean wasn't sparkly Fender either. Swing and a miss IMO.
1993 saw a reissue of the Concert "Pro tube series" amp that is very similar to a Hot Rod Deluxe clean channel. I have never played through one but it is a 40w 1x12 with good reviews. If you like vintage Fender tone this is probably a good way to get there without dropping a ton of cash for an old vintage Brownie Concert.
Yes I think the first upgrade I'm putting on is locking tuners. I'll have to find a roller nut do you know what brands are good or not? Thanks a lot
Mostly hendirx style use of it so yes divebombs, and I prefer a trem that can be pulled back in order to make chords/notes go higher which from what I've seen isnt as easy on the stock standard bridges.
I mean by definition a shorter scale should decrease the distance between the frets, which would help me out given I have a hard time stretching my smaller fingers/hand with the 25.5" scale that both have. Of course that could just be a lack of practice and maybe if I practice hours upon hours a day, I'd probably be able to stretch more, but why do that when a smaller scale is possible? And like I said, looks aren't everything, but I've gotten really tired of the standard Strat look (the Jackson is a Super Strat too). The Jaguar definitely provides something different and unique. I'm not the biggest fan of the Strat pickups either, 'cause I mean it's a cheap $200 Squier. It's a good bang for your buck, but $200 can only get you so far.
I have a Squier Affinity Strat HSS and a Jackson JS32 Dinky.
I bought a Warlock Bronze Series new in 2008 but it had the inline headstock.
Thanks. I plan on doing most of this later on so price isnt a major worry. Ill check these out because I do like the effect of floyds, and plus I'm putting it on a mexi standard so I wont get shamed on by gear heads and strat snobs . I'll have to search for a supplier but I'm definitely going to keep it in mind! Ill probably end up needing one of those fancy nuts that keeps the guitar in tune, any recommendations for those?
I've played a Squier Jaguar but not a Fender, and the parts that I didn't like aren't on the models I'm comparing so I think I should be fine, everything else checked out good. I actually have this like 23" scale Martin classic guitar from when I was younger that I prefer to practice on 10x more, it's just so much more comfortable to play on. That leads me to my assumption that I'd enjoy a 24" scale over a 24.75" scale (not to mention I really didn't like the SG's and Les Pauls I've tried out).
Yeah, entry level Warlock, what later became the Bronze Series. I'd say pre-2008
Yeah I gotcha. I consider playability and comfort above all things first and foremost, and so that's why I started by looking into short scale guitars. I mean, I guess when I'm looking for a shorter scale guitar with humbuckers, you'd ask yourself why I don't just get a Gibson, but I've tried SG's and Les Pauls in my price range and honestly just didn't like them. I just got a new amp and I'm really satisfied with it, so that's why I was looking to upgrade the guitar part next.
Wait so the single coil that the Player Jaguar has isn't even like a "Jaguar" pickup? I thought that one at least was.
I mean, maybe I overemphasized the Metal I play. Like I said, Old School Metal, so I don't need 7 strings or crazy active pickups. And it doesn't even have to be ideal for Old School Metal either, I play just as much, maybe even a little more of noisy Garage and Psych Rock. Stuff like Ty Segall, who uses Mustangs and Jaguars from what I know. I've owned a Strat for a while and yeah, they may be versatile and all but I'm kinda bored of it. I wanted something different, and while looks aren't everything, the offset body of the Jaguar really caught my attention. I'm not that big of a guy either so the short scale really appealed to me. That's basically why I wanted a Jaguar over another Strat.
Ah yeah I get what you're saying. That's why I don't want to drop the Player, it at least has some original Jaguar in it because it has that single-coil pickup. And trust me, I'm not one to place looks above other more important things. The color of the Player Series was just a real nice touch, I still prioritize playability and comfort way more.
I guess modeling software would work. But when you pull together the cost of software, an interface and decent speakers/monitors.... Sure, you can get a decent sound with cheaper setups, like the Katana or the PODs, vypers, or some of those lunchbox amps and so on. But getting a really great sound takes like a grand for sure, and matching the tone in that video seems like it would take some cash to achieve. For sure you need some sort of cab with a decent speaker, and some sort of decent amp, and those two things together... well....
