It can do metal... just not for very long. My friend has one, he had it 3 months before the speakers started acting up, and the Sovtek tubes they put in there wore out on him hella fast. Fortunately he's upgraded to his Rivera Knucklehead Tre and his Mesa 4x12.
I prefer passive sound. And, I don't like butchering my guitar to have a tad bit more clarity, passive recs?
:stickpoke Have you seen the size of the control cavity on your RG? There's more than enough room to fit the 9 volt. If you want passives, try going with a 7 string Breed/X2N combo, or dual PAF7's. If DiMarzio's aren't your bag, Seymour Duncan makes a lot of 7 string versions of their pups that aren't active.
I think Dino said in an interview that he won't get a signature model, but he gets full access to the LA custom shop.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure he said that. I think the reason is that he doesn't want to be stuck with one guitar forever, but would rather have variation. From what I've seen in the RG2228 promo video, he has seven custom shop 7 string RG's, and two custom shop 8 strings, as well as a few Xiphos 7's as well.
Also, to answer Slaytanic's question, Seymour Duncan Blackouts. Great tone you can get out of those puppies, or you can lay some distortion over them and get a bone crushing sound.
I've already tuned up to C# with my 7 string. I used Ernie Ball Stainless 8-52 gauge as a precaution to not snap my high E. All in all, I couldn't find much use for the F#, because it was way too twangy and kind of sounds annoying on the higher frets. But nonetheless it was still fun to toy around with.
Peavey classic 50/50 power amp hey? Great power amps aren't they, unfortunately mine is in the process of being replaced with a mesa 50/50 in a couple of weeks.
But a stock S7320 through that setup sounds killer, i remember playing that same setup a while ago when my other guitarist first got his ENGL, sounds really nice.
Mesa makes some damn good cabinets with plenty of low end. Yesterday I ran my RG7321 through my 6 string guitarist's Rivera Knucklehead Tre into a Mesa 4x12 cab. It was the heaviest sound I've ever heard in my life. I was tuned in A standard, and the sound was just pure crunch.
I kind of want to try an 8 string, but on the other hand, you only have to tune down 2 steps on a 7 string to get the same effect. The only use for the 8th string is to keep your highs. Chances are, if you're playing that low, and you're not Rusty Cooley, you're probably not flying up and down the fretboard.
Very good quality compared to my band's demo. The vocals kind of remind me of the Bloodhound gang only serious. The overall quality is pretty good, but the drums could be mic'd a bit better (add a little bass to the kick drum, possibly change the position of the snare mic to make it sound softer).
Well, if you were witnessing it beginning, you'd see it go outwards from its center point 1.5 places, and then slowly and exponentially expand in both directions, because lines extend infinitely in both directions. Pi would simply act as sort of a speed limiter of how fast the line could expand because of the tons of decimal places. But, because Pi's decimal places keep getting smaller and smaller, eventually you wouldn't even see the line expanding anymore.
I figure it's about time to post my band, as we'll soon be finishing all of our recording and handing out demo CD's to people anyways. We have sort of a thrash metal sound, but some of our stuff sounds more progressive too. Currently, the song we have up on our Myspace is called "Blacking Out", and it was the only track we managed to get recorded due to problems concerning the number of inputs our recording guy had. But, on May 3, we'll be going back in to record about 4 or 5 of our tracks.
There is also a video that our singer recorded of Taylor and Joe (the two guitarists) playing another song of ours by the name of "Purify in Death", which we should have uploaded to a public source soon.
As a side note, yes, I know the demo sounds pretty bad, it's because we had to track a lot of stuff separately, as well as deal with the amount of time we had to record everything. It'll sound a lot better when we rerecord it.
I'm in Central Indiana, and my house shook slightly for like 10 seconds. I was putting my belt through the loops and I heard the house rattling and I could see my guitars starting to vibrate on the stands. Was kind of interesting.
I remember I downloaded a video from Joox a while back, and their download system would like, precache the download before it would show up as downloading on Firefox. So when it finally would download, it was saying the speed was like 4000MBPS. It was crazy, at first I was like "uh... did I get patched through to a straight fiber optic line?", and then I realized what was happening.
Oh hell yes I would, I'm a sexy mother****er. And obviously if he's an exact genetic copy of me and thinks the exact same way I do, obviously he's not going to tell anybody. That, or I could just keep my clone as a gimp in a box in my crawlspace.
I apologize for being a nub, but I have never heard of a "black ice" mod, would you mind elaborating?
As for your question about the sound. It would probably sound pretty good, although, an SG isn't going to sound the same as a Stratocaster, but in terms of tone and sound, it should be at least equivalent if you buy the proper hardware, pots, nut etc.
Make sure you switch out your oil filter every 3000 miles or so, and use either Valvoline Synthetic or Royal Purple oil in your system, also, don't go cheap when it comes to oil filters. NAPA makes a pretty good oil filter out of aluminum with a better oil flow system, so I use that. There's also an oil additive put out by Lucas Oil that you can put in your oil every time you change it out, and it will make the oil a bit more viscous, but it won't break down and it helps your engine out in terms of better lubrication.
That actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The dude kept yelling at his sister "You could have been raped, in the butt!" and when she started yelling at him he just started gargling out things like "In the butt, Myspace, Youtube, in the butt"
