wow so now my music choice decides how much I know about pickups? nice one!
I suggested to the OP to use what he likes best and that actives will not completely kill his guitars natural tone, you however have a different opinion. The dimwit comment, if you know how to read properly, was directed at the UG dimwits on here who'll bash anything with active pickups and push their opinion onto others...kinda like yourself. Every pickup will colour your tone, however EMG's and other actives will still let some of the guitars tone come through, it would be stupid to think they don't especially considering you have such a vast experience playing actives
What can I say, its not my fault you're tone deaf
once again you're providing more evidence to go towards my original point. i'm sure there were some "purists" who said the very same thing about the gibson les paul.
which brings me on to the question... have you ever played one?
i haven't and thus i'm not going to judge the guitar in any way shape or form. from my perspective it looks like something i'd give a chance but ultimately i'll stick with my good old fashioned 20th century style electric guitars because i'm not really interested in the new features this thing has to offer.
well that is a bit harsh. i mean they are some revolutionary features. and many guitars have active electronics....like 95% of metal players out there using EMGs. are thier guitars toys?
its unfortuneate they make these things horridly ugly...like the dust tiger. but i would love to foll with one. im sure it does unbelivable things once you get accustomed to it. and its still a high end gibson, and im pretty sure its pleked. i almost garantee it plays better than almost anyones guitar.
people are bashing based on looks...its stupid. once people get thier heads out of their *sses, they might see its incredible potential.
that aside,its too expensive, has too many features, and is more guitar than i need. and its a tad ugly. i would consider rocking it. if i was a really rich guy who wanted top of the line and culd afford any guitar...i would probably buy one for kicks.
Funny how you seem to have taken that line onto yourself and thought I was talking about you considering I posted before you. So yes NOW you are a dimwit.
Also, if you honestly think a Gibson Les Paul with EMG 81/85 set will sound the same as a Fender Strat with EMG 81/85 pickups you're also a f*cking retard.
Bullsh*t they do, might want to get your facts straight
Acoustic Mirror. He likes to make unusable noises
I'd say so. It can do the rock stuff like a charm and with a boost effect can handle all the metal you'd want. The 6505+ won't do the rock stuff and the cleans aren't really too great.
Because it's Min
that's exactly the kind of thing people said about solidbodies at first.
in what way is the firebird X like a toy, other than that it looks like one?
What exactly is the point in making unhelpful posts of poor quality playing / recording to show how bad a seemingly good pedal can sound if it's set up to sound bad?
Here's a good demo:
jet city has a 22 watt head and 1x12 cab for like $349, and its meant for high gain, I don't play metals so not my strong place
they are no more controversial than the les paul and the explorer/flying V were at first.
in your opinion! aha
but then explain me why allmost all metal bands run a OD as boost in front of their lead channel. the od as boost tightens up your distorsion and gives it more chunk and bite.
Happy New Gear Day! Enjoy it all!
Cool dog, too.
I dunno about you but I don't expect an 'analstorm' to sound good...
Way too high man. First off, you gotta know how to adjust your bridge, etc. What kind of bridge do you have? Fixed, string-thru, etc. Once you've adjusted your action, go threw at various frets, usually higher up frets and see if you get any buzz. Personally, I go as low as I possibly can without having too much buzz. It also depends on your strings, I went from 10's to 12's and got major buzz and to adjust my whole bridge. Like others said, check your neck. If it's bowed, do some research about adjusting your truss rod and such. Good luck! Trust me, once you get that action lowered, it'll be a LOT easier to play.
Most modern metal uses a mid hum/bass cut boost. Most amps cannot emulate the effects of running a TS in front. There is a giant difference between a 6505, and a 6505 with a boost in front.
I wanna say this is the clip of it?
gotta start naming my files better.
I'm a big fan of your Swollen Pickle too.
hella high. also your neck looks bowed.
simple.they are crazy!!!
Well you've certainly got me mate, I do literally go by what i've been taught in my Music lessons, guitar lessons and A level course. But I definitely see what you're saying, I'm not very risky with my tones through to composition work, very much by the books.
I'd be interested to know how you'd use effects, for discussions sake, and personal learning :p
I can see things like Pitch Shifters and octavers being musically useful? You could have a lot of fun with your compositions with different intervals.
For example if you had a lead part played on your GBE strings, I can see 5s being a fun interval to use, with effective results.
Obv you have your Reverb, Chorus as said before is okay to have (In low amounts, mind) running behind a slow, march-like metal riff.
Wah you're probably right, just something to play with - but I wouldn't rule it out entirely.
So I disagree to a certain extent that Effects can't be used much in music.
I'm gonna have to say delay and reverb. Outside of that, I don't really use many effects these days. I like to keep it as organic as possible.
