Re: Guitar pedal with headphone output?

You could buy the rocksmith usb cable to plug your guitar/pedal board chain into a computer or laptop and jam away with headphones off of that if you have some recording software. That will probably sound way better than a headphone amp and give you the option to track your ideas. For headphone jamm...

Re: What pedals can you not live without?

I cannot live without reverb. You can take away everything else but as long as I have a playable guitar plugged into a loud enough clean amp with a reverb pedal I'm gold till im old.

Re: Vocal mic for recording.

I like my AKG C4000B that I picked up for half the price new in like new condition. You can score one for a good price on the used market. It's definitely an all around versatile LDC and has a bass roll off and -10 pad switch. Good stuff for the money.

Re: Easy recording

Honestly dude, I know this sounds ridiculous, but want to know the easiest/cheapest/fastest way to record your guitar through usb? Download Audacity for your PC (its free recording software) and record a guitar track with this http://www.ebay.com/itm/ROCKSMITH-OFFICIAL-REAL-TONE-USB-CABLE-PS3-XBOX-3...

Re: NGD: Vintage Modified Jazzmaster

Also you can't go wrong with the warmoth modified mustang bridge. Once I popped that on and tightened the strings up everything just felt better. Not only were the strings not sliding out of the grooves but it just had more of a solid feel.

Re: Post your band's link

Unfortunately I was only an orange user for a little while but the board is good so I linger, so no Orange content in these recordings. Check the link in the sig. In the mean time I think I'll write a blues song about how I wish I had a RV50 : )

Re: NGD: Vintage Modified Jazzmaster

Yep, definitely meant Curtis. I ended up ordering his PAF humbucker that fits in a jazzmaster for the neck. I pretty much can't wait to pull the pickguard and solder that in right away. Don't get me wrong single coils have their place but man these are cheeeeap sounding.

Re: NGD: Vintage Modified Jazzmaster

Upon google searching, its come to my attention that chris novak makes some cool pickups for jazzmasters. I'm waiting for a reply so I can order a custom humbucker made for jazzmaster in the neck, and leave the single coil in the bridge, but definitely replace the duncan design labeled cover due to ...

Re: NGD: Vintage Modified Jazzmaster

Normally 299 but i got mine with a $25 fender instant rebate. It came to 288 out the door with a strap I picked up. So how do I go about swapping out the plastic string nut to bone? Do I just take it to a set up guy? Also I found the bridge to get, it would be a warmoth mustang bridge. After those t...

NGD: Vintage Modified Jazzmaster

Yep, haven't posted here in probably a couple years? Shame on me, srsly. Coolest board. Anyway, I picked up one of the new squires today, a sonic blue (totally surf green looking) vintage modified jazzmaster. Duncan designed pickups, floating trem, but totally sweet for such a cheap price. The squir...

Re: OT: music man hd130 reverb

Really? Man, if that is the case I'm soon taking it to a tech. I would love to hear this thing roar with some washed out verb.

Re: OT: music man hd130 reverb

Well, I swapped the reverb plate out for a new one and it helped a lot but its definitely not an amp with good verb like a twin. The reverb is still pretty weak as it is, so at least I know.

Re: OT: music man hd130 reverb

Being that its an easy swap for a non tech person, I went ahead and ordered a new tank hoping that its the right fix. If not, then yep, a tech is next. They are pretty cool amps for sure. I just hope its not something inside the amp, that sounds fairly expensive to fix!

Re: OT: music man hd130 reverb

Well so far I pulled out the tank, everything inside seems to look fine. So I switched the RCA cables out for some newer ones and that seemed to help a little bit I think? I also swapped the input and the output and for some reason I think it was more apparent. Either way, from what I'm reading on m...
