Keys are not tunings not tunings thats why
happy NGD but those pictures are HUGE
Quote by Ledhead82048
okay so right now I'm testing a solid red bass, but lets say if I order a honeyburst bass I might get a slightly different tone?

Yes but with the preamp on the bass you can easily minimalism that difference.

I can't believe you deleted your other thread - talk about throwing your toys out of the pram

Your amp is 15 watts.
It's rare but nothing special tonally and completely the opposite of what you need if you want clarity and definition from a 7 string guitar.

You need a new amp.

and again I am going to tell you to change your eq if what's in the picture is what you play.

though technically there is shredding I believe it would work out

Head and Cab basically lets you choose your preference of speakers.

With combo's you get whatever the amp happens to come with.

Not really, speakers can always be changed, as long as you follow the right ohms and wattage. The difference is the head and cab is two separate pieces while a combo just has them together.

I think that's the only bass they make so that's probably the one she played. I'd love to try one of those out.

Actually PRS has made a few bassist, just none as a production model. I saw one once and it looked really nice, but i wouldn't touch it with the price tag.

The nicest bass I have played is probably a Fender Marcus Miller Jazz 5 or my Spector Euro 5LX

I think the vetta is the better option. If you search for the vetta used you should be able to find it for the price of the 6505+ combo new plus it is a lot more versatile. The vetta also will sound better than the 6505+ when played at bedroom volumes and does a pretty good job at modeling it if you just want to use that tone.
Low wattage tube amps can not do metal very well, especially not without a boost. What happens is because when you are pushing the preamp hard enough to get the right gain out of the preamp you end up with power tube saturation, which makes your tone muddy. For metal you want a preamp thats driven as hard as you want then a really clean power amp.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? From "anchoring"? LOL! That doesn't qualify as repetitive motion. The guitar world is full of different and varied techniques. It's only a bad habit if it keeps you from progressing.

Ever hear of Steve Morse. Great guitar player, but can no longer play like he used to and he will even admit it is because he anchored. Petrucci is the same way he has not got it yet, but wishes that he never started anchoring.
Yes, it is called anchoring and can lead to slowing you down and carpal tunnel syndrome.
I'd get a 5 string set thats meant for a high C then look for a single string (I have no idea what gauge) for the high e

i play stingrays now and will not play anything else

Yes but it's not a good reason to necrobump your thread.

You will never receive a relic'd finish on a polyurethane finish. You will have to sand it and or abuse the guitar. If the guitar has a nitrocellulose lacquer the best way would be playing a lot.
I actually find the older ones better, Fender's quality imo was better back then. The news are good and more upgraded, but the older ones are also excellent.

hmmm okay thanks, theproblem i find is that I have to turn the presence on my peavey 6505 all the way up to get the same agressiveness. Is this normal? Are there any better ways to go about doing this? (I also play onpretty low volume even thoughi play on what is a stage amp, guess that might have some effect ? =/)

It's the low volumes most likely, usually the more you push a tube amp the better it sounds. Now you don't ant to push it so hard you get power tube distortion, just enough for a lot of preamp distortion.
Yeah, but really gets me is the word navigator or something similar written on there, I cant recall any SVT's that say navigator on them.
I'm a huge fan of Arif from Protest the Hero, but I have no idea what amp he uses. I've heard from people who have seen him live say he uses Aguilar Ag500's but nothing I have found ever confirms. Recently I found this video and the picture they use shows him playing what I believe is an Ampeg SVT, but I can't find out the model does anyone know what it could be, or what he is using now?

I also agree with Mr. Fibble here, another thing is that your hands has nothing to do with your tone, technique and playing style =/= tone. Vai can't make an MG give a good tone, but he can play a song that sounds good.
Actually for metal you do want a higher wattage. You drive a small wattage amp and then you will get powertube saturation which you do not want, so it is best to have a higher wattage amp so this doesn't happen.
Edit: I do admit I said the pushing tube thing wrong, I edit saying what I meant to say.
A 5 watt really cant do metal at least not with out a boost. Tubes just can't be pushed hard enough with out power tube saturation muddying up your tone.
Quote by BamaBlues
it's going to hard to get a sound like Justin Chancellor, seeing as that he usually plays on a Wal and if I'm not mistaken he bi-amps as well, using one clean and one dirty channel. But boosting your treble and scooping your mids may be your best bet

Sober is from the days when Paul was the bassist. Paul has a really bright tone, most likely because of the ric and really aggressive picking. Part of it is also his Mesa.
Cheap wireless systems tend to do that plus they sacrifice tone. Honestly I wouldn't buy a wireless under $300.
More than likely it is your speakers
The problem is not so much the cold weather, it is rapid climate change. If moving a bass from really hot to really cold or vise versa the woods will rapidly expand or contract which can cause problems
All depends off if you can get no delay, so probably not.
They need the battery to work.
The basic idea is that it the complex time signature change and use of overlapping time signatures make it more like math than metal, it is a jokingly used term.
The reason that know one is answering is because there no active that are similar to an evo. You could try blackouts if you would like a less sterile sound, but you are not going to get a similar sound to evo's in an active.
I would not go with emg's because they will require you to route your guitar. Blackouts are a good choice though, also the live wires aren't available as a 7 string pickup. If I were you I'd go the dimarzio route and get a crunch lab or a blaze custom for the bridge and an Air Norton in the neck.
You probably do not want emg's because you would have to route your guitar to fit them, I'd go for blackouts if you want actives because they make a standard seven string size.

Don't you DARE pay for something you can do yourself. An OFR fits exactly in the place of an Edge 3. Should take two minutes. Five if you've got no thumbs.

OFR are always a direct fit it depends on the guitar with the edge 3 and changing a floyd is not a two minute job from removing the edge to putting in the floyd and setting it up, it could take an hour to a few hours

tone pros makes a tune-o-matic bridge with fine tuners for something like that.

True but that is assuming he gets a tune-o-matic guitar which fixed rg's are not, and he only mentioned replacing the nut.
Quote by Supermansdead81
So in theory you could order a locking nut and put it on a cheap fixed bridge model RG and end up with the same end product? Is that fair to say and possible? Can you order a locking nut afterwards or not? Do they make that much of a difference because if they do and you can do that, then I'll just do that.

No because a locking nut causes your tuning to go sharp so you would need fine tuners to adjust it.
Quote by mikey_360
Unless I'm missing something the mtm2 has an Edge III bridge which is just the same as any other tremolo as in it has springs that need adjustment if tuning is changed.

The MTM2 actually has a fixed edge 3 (you can see the bolt in back) so no springs evolved, the advantage to this is you get the tuning stability of a locking nut, but you still need the fine tuners so the had to have the tremolo their. Due to the bolt it can not move so their is no need to worry about the problems found with an edge 3. Honestly though if you dont wish to fork out the cash for a signature, a normal fixed bridge also works very well.
If you have a floating tremolo you would have to adjust the spring tension every time you change tuning. Now the MTM2 has the best of both worlds, because of the double locking it can hold tuning well, but there is no tension to adjust. If you don't plan on abusing the tremolo I recommend you get a fixed bridge for the simplicity, or a design like on the MTM2

One of Maiden's guitarists uses a LP, doesn't he? At least sometimes he does.

Anyway: Skeletonwitch- Two Gibby Flying V's before they both got identical First Act custom Explorers (except one is left handed, of course :p

Yes Dave Murray still does sometimes not often though, also Adrian Smith very commonly uses an SG
