I've still yet to find a guitar I like playing more than my Harmony Bobkat. Bought it for $200 just over 8 years ago now and have never played a guitar that's better suited for me ever. Neck is as thick as a bat, pickups are louder and snappier than anything I've ever heard, plays like absolute shit, but for some reason it's the only guitar I've ever picked up and had it really speak to me.

Unfortunately I got hit by a drunk driver a few years back and I can't play much anymore. Fixing that by picking up a pedal steel this weekend... Any steel players hear?

Quoted from littlecammi:

Wow! An actual talking guitar! Even Peter Frampton's guitar on Frampton Comes Alive didn't really speak by itself.

Most of the time it's just saying "DUDE YOU SUCK AT THIS"

#175 1 year ago

Before I had to get a full time job (long story, involves that drunk driver) I used to tour full time playing "lead guitar" with Lina Tullgren. This was before I was as deep into my pinball journey as I am now. Sometimes I think of cities I used to play in that now have collections that I'm in love with and just had no idea they were there. But then again, we wouldn't have gotten anywhere on time if I had been.

"C'mon guys! I just have to play this Spirit just ONE MORE TIME"

Here is us playing on Audiotree a while back. Not our best performance but hey, it looks nice. If you're a pedalgazer, you might have something to look at too...

What’s that Ty? Pinball wasn't enough of an expensive or inhumanly complicated hobby for you?

Enter Pedal Steel Guitar... Just picked this up yesterday.

Quoted from pinballjj:

whoa!! I thought you would be going for the Robert Randolph straight steel approach steel but I see you have 5 pedals !! have fun!!

Hilariously pedal 1 and 5 aren't connected to anything. Supposedly the two additional ones were supposed to come out of the factory raising strings 6&7 individually.... but this one is close to the traditional Emmons setup.

I feel like amp tech work and pinball work has a lot of crossover. Been meaning to get back to some of my amps that don't work... I've got an Ampeg B-25 which as been fucked for ages.

#372 1 year ago

Just got this new Rotary pedal in. For $130 on amazon (or cheaper if you buy it used heh heh heh) it is a pretty impressive pedal. Highly recommend it for any stereo heads out there. Best Leslie/Rotary pedal I've used yet.

Now acts as the main stereo splitter for my pedalboard. The Mid-Fi Random Phase Vibrato is getting replaced with a Strymon Ola next week. If you haven't checked out any of the Mid-Fi pedals, you're missing out. The orange pedal I have one the right is a custom build of his. Doug is kind of the guy who mentored me into the pedal world, which has by in large brought me to the pinball world (fixing things, wiring, pcbs, ect.) and his products are definitely worth checking out.

Quoted from SunnRAT:

I really value my weekends off, especially this year, being able to drone out and zone out in my garage, leaving this world behind just for a moment.

Is that the 115 or the 215 cab setup? I had an almost identical looking rig for a bit of time at my studio and man was it AWESOME. Sunn made so many great amps (as well as a boat load of stinkers too).

Ended up selling both a while back. The head I'm not too sad I don't have any more but I really REALLY miss that 115 cab with the D130F.

I toured with this rig twice and didn't have a single problem with it. My big thing is running effects in stereo. God damnit we have two ears. Use them for something other than U2 style quarter not delays. Mid-Fi Custom Distortion/Overdrive->Freeze->Phase 95->Mid-Fi Random Phase/Vibrato-> Roctary Poly Octave Rotary (stereo split happens here)->Stereo Memory Man->El Capistan (the best delay pedal ever)->Tc Electronics Alter Ego V2->Line6 Tap Tempo Tremolo (the best term pedal ever produced prove me wrong)-> EHX720 (one of the worst loopers ever made)->Behringer RV600. Someday I'll find a non-rackmount reverb I like better than the RV600, but the cave and hall settings really take the cake.

If I'm to do a single pedal into an amp, it's a Memory Man into a Fender Super Champ. Great combo.

Quoted from Shredso:

Side note, aside from a handful of brilliant engineers I know, sound guys in the Boston are miserable dicks. When I started doing some traveling outside of New England the sound engineers were totally different. Much for friendly, more helpful, less attitude.

Quoted from Shredso:

Good luck trying to get a sound guy to add a 2nd mic for a guitar player.

Crazy as it sounds, I never encountered this. Played all the spots in the past 3 years when I was touring extensively and most Boston sound dudes were super into the stereo thing and what I was doing with it. The sound guy from Great Scott would even REQUEST doing sound on shows we were playing because he liked what we did so much. Sinclair and BMH too, they loved it. Probably helped that I put two amps on either side of the stage.

LOVE that you used the quadraverb. I am a huge midiverb fan. I have every iteration. I like the Midiverb 4 the most. Have a few patches on there that I absolutely stand by. Love those units.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Can anybody recommend a good looper pedal? User friendly but also advanced enough to store some loops etc.
I have a total cheapie one now with one button. It was given to me by a friend. Fun to mess around with but I think I’m ready for something a little better and more user friendly.

I have the EHX 720 in my setup which I like because it has a good stereo in and stereo out and is simple as all hell... I have a really early one and there is a tiny bit of a delay from when you stop the loop and stat overdubbing that drives me mad when I'm trying to do an actual loop. I believe they improved on this in the 1440 models. Doesn't really affect my style of playing since I'm mostly doing boring slow shit, but might affect yours. The UX of the pedal is hard to beat though. Dead easy to use with a smallish footprint.

If you don't need all those features, memory banks and what not, the Ditto 2x is also pretty user friendly.

I made a studio desk in sketch a while ago. Tons of rack space. The setup has changed quite a bit since the photo was taken, but you get the gist of it.

If you wanna get REAL nerdy about some tape syncing and sequencing, I could bore you for hours talking about how this setup now runs two 8 tracks synced via SMPTE striping....

Quoted from Shredso:

This unfortunately has to double as my office desk, to be honest it's what it will be 95% of the time

No reason you can't have a pimp ass office desk

Unfortunately my studio is in a pretty remote part of the state AND I don't have internet there so I can't do my day job from my fun desk, but that desk works surprisingly well as an office desk as well. Wireless keyboard and mouse fits right underneath the slider of the 388. If I could get some internet out there, I'd be able to use it as my main editing suite (I do video for a living).

The whole wiring theory of the desk is that I have 24 channels coming in from the A and B room (16 from the a room and 8 from the b room). Those go into two set of 144 point TT patchbays, 8 channels into the 388 preamps, 8 channels into the Ashly MM-508 preamps (great sub mixer if you ever get the chance to pick one up), and 8 to individual preamps. One 4 channel API clone, one JoeMeek TwinQ2, and an Art Pro VLA II. With the patchbay each mic input can be patched into any preamp available.

Space runs on two Motu 828s that are daisy chained together via their ADAT ports, so the 144 TT half normal bay allows for the channel sends on the 388 and 508 (both post eq pre fader) go directly wired into the analog ins of the 828s so that you can set levels and have them go direct into the computer, record all the takes, and go back out to the outboard gear and back to the tape recorder uninterrupted (allowing you to record endless digital takes, and continually record over the tape versions so when we all feel comfortable deciding on a base take, we can build off of that base take.

The 388 and the 238 (cassette 8-track and reel to reel 8-track) both have the last channel striped together with SMPTE signal which is sync locked via a Tascam Midiizer, which runs as a slave off of the midi signal dictated by the computer (via the Motu interface). What does this mean??? It means that computer in theory can control both of the tape transports AND run in sync with protools/logic/DP. Geeky shit. But what this allows me to do is fill up 13 tracks in analog (remember the SMPTE stripe taking up channels 8 on both recorders), dump all 13 tracks to the computer (keeping in sync remember) while folding all those tracks down to track 8 on either the 238 or the 388, fill up another 13 tracks, dump em, on and on. Does this ever work? Rarely, but in theory it all lines up nicely.

#608 11 months ago

Can speak highly enough about using sketchup though. I built the desk, made cut sheets, brought over to a local woodworker and paid him a couple hundred of bucks to get all the wood picked out and cut together and then I assembled, stained, and poly'd it at home.

#610 11 months ago
Quoted from xsvtoys:

I love the desk setup, and all the tech AV. Admittedly as an amateur video editor I don't understand 90% of what you wrote. But, I did wonder, isn't most of this done digitally now with NLE software tools? You even said almost all your work is done on the screen. I can't figure out how all the tape comes in.

Oh sorry, this is my recording studio setup... In theory if I needed to work in this setting I would just open up Resolve and edit haha.

#611 11 months ago

For the most part, people love recording to tape. Dumb hipsters who want their music to sound like dogshit (myself included) love both of the tape recorders I run, but nobody wants to totally abandon the ease and safety of using a computer. The setup is to provide the best of both worlds.

#618 11 months ago
Quoted from Shredso:

My big hangup now is the guitar amp/modeler. There really isn't a good way to integrate an AX8 (what I use for my live rig).

It seems like you’re PC based but in a home environment (not at my studio) I’ve only ever used the amp modeling in Logic Pro X when I play. I had an Apollo Twin for a little bit which had some nice amp modeling, but 95% of my pedal steel and guitar playing these days is at home through my Motu M2 and the Logic amp simulators.

Quoted from phil-lee:

People destroyed a lot of Hammond organs to get to the Leslie Speaker inside.

I feel pretty lucky to have a cool Hammond organ that not only has a Leslie speakers inside, but also has a bizzaro synth section designed by Moog.

I modified the speaker so that the power section spilits and I can daisy chain it to the external amp section of whatever guitar amp I’m using. Pretty easy to do (if you’re capable of working on pins, you can (carefully) work on audio equipment.)

#683 9 months ago
Quoted from SunnRAT:

I'd like to be able to use both cabs with my amplifier. On my DMM, both cabinets appear to be around 7.6, 7.7, which means they're pretty much 8 ohms, correct? (Both were tested using the DMM on one end of the speaker cable.)

Not exactly how that one to one works and it's extremely hard to tell exactly what you've got on your hands unless you open up the cabinet and show us some pictures of that.

Generally speaking, 6 speaker cabinets are a pain to wire and a pain to pair with other amps. A lot of 6x12s were wired in a combination of series and parallel to generate an overall output of a more standard rating of 4 or 8 or 16 ohms. If the whole thing is wired up in the same way you would wire a normal speaker cabinet (and how these things came stock) you'd get something wacky like 6 or 12 ohms, which if your reading is coming in closer to 8ohm on your DMM, I would suspect you miiiiiight be running a 12 ohm load in that cabinet, but someone can speak more intelligently about this one I'm sure. usually an 8ohm speaker cab should read as 6 ohms or just under on your DMM.

I think from what I've seen, again, please correct me if I'm wrong here, is that a lot of of 6x12s have two 8 ohm speakers wired in series, and then four 4 ohm speakers wired in series, and the two batches of speakers (totaling 16 ohms each) are wired in parallel to give you a total output of 8 ohms to be matched up with an amp. Not exactly sure how that affects the power consumption and output of the speakers, but as far as I'm concerned, that should be the last of your worries.

What amp are you using and what are your output impedance options on that? Either way, I would suggest mixing a 6 ohm or 12 ohm speaker cabinet with a standard 8 ohm cab, but it really depends on what amp you're using and how much of a fuck you give. I tend to give little fucks about this stuff and then get mad when my gear breaks.

Anybody know shit about luthier work? I've been playing around with the idea of getting someone to turn my Bobkat neck (thicker than a Louisville Slugger) into a v-neck, but don't want to break the bank. Don't care much about the paint job itself but do care about the neck feeling smooth enough to play. Emailed a few people and couldn't really coax out a quote from any of them. Any ideas on a price range?

Quoted from Pahuffman:

Get a SAMAMP VSC12 if you can find one. They sound absolutely bonkers and they're perfect for home use because you can push the preamp tubes as hard as you want without blowing a window. The secret is that it's completely variable from 0-12 watts so the "loudness" can be as soft as you want without losing any tone. Made with top quality parts and killer Celestion speakers too. They aren't cheap, but holy moly they're amazing.

They seem to go for around $500-$600 which isn't bad if you ask me, but I'm not convince by this whole "VSC" tech thing. Sounds kind of just like a master volume to me but maybe I'm not understanding it right.

#761 7 months ago
Quoted from Pahuffman:

On a normal tube amp, your master volume controls how much you push your preamp tubes to overdrive. When you crank your amp, you get nice smooth overdrive tones coming from that preamp section. Usually that means pushing the amp way past bedroom volume. When you turn the volume down on a normal amp, you lose the overdrive. What the VSC does is allow you to naturally drive the preamp section and then adjust the wattage afterwards, so you lose zero overdrive tone at any "loudness". This gives you tons of versatility and range of tones from snappy cleans to serious crunch at anywhere from inaudible to small venue "loudness". The terms are confusing because "volume" is really just how hard you push the preamps on your tube amp.

I understand all this, but I don't see how that's different from a master volume on say a Fender Champ II or something like that (schem attached below and a criminally underrated Fender amp era imo)

Screen Shot 2021-06-08 at 10.53.47 AM (resized).png
#764 7 months ago
Quoted from Pahuffman:

It's very different for all the reasons mentioned above. When you roll back the volume knob on a Champ II, you're not driving the preamps as hard, so at low volumes you don't get any distortion.

I can say from experience, that that's not how the master volume knob works on an amp like that, but whatever. The schem seems to clearly put the master volume after the first preamp stage, but maybe the way you're describing it is the more common wiring.

I would love to learn more about the circuitry behind these Samamps.

#772 7 months ago

Sorry, not trying to be a dick, just trying to understand what makes this different that a lot of master volume amps where the master knob doesn't affect the preamp section (of which there are many). Did some looking and I guess the difference is that the SVC circuit is just a high wattage resistor speaker output side of things after the output tube and output transformer. Gonna guess it's something similar to the output section of the Vox AC4TV that they made a while back. Just a guess though. What ohm speaker does yours have in there?
Screen Shot 2021-06-09 at 11.01.06 AM (resized).png

They sound sick. I hope I get to play one sometime. I would love a 6-10 watt 15" amp. Seems killer.

Those Carr amps are amazing. Had a band from Boston to come up and record with me and they brought Carr amps that were killer. You can here them here:

MS-20 Mini. Really fun little synth. Doesnt sound AS good as the original but the midi functionality is really nice. Allows you to send midi scrolls into it rather than having to get an actual sequencer.

Quoted from zombywoof:

Looks good. How do the three Etch A Sketches factor in?

Theyre actually some really really amazing pieces done by a good friend of mine from college. She does these amazingly detailed and interesting freehand etchasketches. Theyre truly remarkable (although nearly impossible to photograph)

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Really nice! To photograph those, use a mirror at a roughly 45 degree angle

An interesting thought. The reason it's so difficult to photograph them is because there is a bizarre reflective quality of the aluminum dust/silver/whateverthefuckitis in there that makes them hard to capture in any flat way. Not sure a mirror would fix that but I'll give it a go. I used to do a lot of gallery photography and it's had to break from the tradition of shooting one dimensional pieces at anything other than flat on.

You ever own a 70s strat?

I borrowed one for a while from a friend. It was a great guitar. Just couldn't actually get it to work for me physically (nor can I get any full sized Strat to work for my tiny body). BUT it was nice. Had super light half wounds on it. I dug it.

To me, any guitar is a good guitar. It's just what you like.

Thought y'all might be interested in this. My stepdad recently unearthed this video of his band playing at a regional venue in 1987. The lead singer is playing a beautiful Mosrite Ventures. My stepdad says he still has it. The lead guitarist is playing a Jackson, but I'm not sure if he still has it. My stepdad still has his Fender bass. I believe it's a '74.

Very cool video. I love old concert footage especially of bands that aren't huge or anything like that. Especially love seeing old venues.

I think the muppets are left handed because when the puppeteers were watching themselves in the monitors below the deck they have to think of things in reverse, so a lot of would be right handed things are left handed.

Quoted from Elvishasleft:

Klon hype/prices are crazy...
Wampler makes a pedal called a Tumnus that is basically a Klon ( I cant tell the difference between the two) but does way more and is just regular pedal priced.

They are. Not to add to the hype, but as far as I know, it is one of the last NIB KTR from their original run as well as the earliest documented serial number.

Took it out of the box to try it out. Sounds great. I think there are plenty of pedals that sound similar, and I won't say the Tumnus is any better or worse, but it's cool to have the original thing.

Quoted from Bobbydevil:

Pretty bad ass. Worth the hype?

It's pretty amazing, but I'm not a huge overdrive person. I also mostly play pedal steel these days and it sounds like absolute dogshit while using it on that. It's cool having the last new KTR from the first run. Every few weeks or so I take it out of the box pick up the guitar and try it out and it blows my mind every time.

The only other overdrive pedal I've ever liked is the Mid-Fi Electronics Magick "I" which is, and I do not say this lightly, the most unique overdrive/distortion pedal in the world. Doug at Mid-Fi is one of the best (and one of the first) in the biz.

Aria Pro II TS-800 Tri-Sound

Every Aria I've ever played has absolutely blown my mind. Great guitars. That one looks like no exception. I had a few of their 4001 copies that rule.

#1039 69 days ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

100% agree. What happened to that company? Did they get consumed by Fender like Jackson did? (RIP neck-thru Jacksons...)

In theory they still exist and are still made in Japan, but I have no idea what the actual deal is with their production. I get really lost on those details (even the heavily documented ones) really easily. I will say their new guitars don't look.... great...

#1043 67 days ago

One of the absolute shittiest guitars I've ever owned that I absolutely regret selling was this Cort Lead II copy. Great fucking guitar. Had half wounds on it. Sounded excellent. The neck was a little fucked up in the way all Corts are. Always wanted to put a warmth Gibson Conversion neck on it but felt silly buying a $400 neck for a guitar I paid $100 for.

Damn do I miss this one.

I didn't realize UAD interfaces were that cheap now. Pretty unreal if you ask me.

For product longevity and commitment I've always leaned towards MOTU, but the UAD interfaces with their plugin selection is pretty hard to beat. My studio is still running a pair of MOTU 828s (MKii and MK3 in tandem via the ADAT link) as my main 16 I/O. Are they professional grade converters? Hell no. Do they get the job done? Yeah.

MOTU for the win again. I use their M2 with a pair of Generic 8020Cs for my home setup. Dead simple to use. Gets the job done.
