    It changes weekly...really it does with me. Right now, I can't stop playing the Archon. I have settled on running the clean channel volume full on and the lead channel volume at just about 1 (out...

    Live Sound Setups

    For those of you who gig, I’d like to know how you all handle live sound. It’s sort of mentioned in passing relative to things like amp settings, “fitting into the mix”, etc., but I haven’t seen a...

    I have several thoughts related to this....

    1. The GC in Rockville, MD at least has great guys (at least the ones I've dealt with...) They go out of their way to bring cool stuff in, will talk...

    I've always had my eye out for something like this, but never found it. I see some of the pics above, but what the OP wants (at least what I want) is the traditional tilt back stand with a couple of...

    It's all just too confusing to me. The complexities of the combination of guitar and pickup just make it so I can never really tell what's due to what.

    Heck, I can get as close to a PAF / Les...

    Simple way? Plug a cable into the guitar (short as possible) and measure DC resistance across the other end of the cable with the pickup in question selected and the volume pot at full on for that...

    Hey Boogie... In this case, I think that they really do want you to do the math. So, if you're hooking up two 16 Ohm cabs, you set the selector to 8 Ohms. There are counter examples with other...

    Tube rattle can drive you nuts. I go through phases where it bugs me and I take it on to solve the problem for some particular amp. I have a signal generator that I use and sweep the frequency...

    That was just amazing. I agree with pretty much everything you said in the end too. Having said that, and even with all of the other stuff in your chain, the MC58 really stood out to me.

    Well, I do have to pick up a few sets of strings today. I'm just hoping that Chuck Levin's doesn't have a DG50 sitting around to try out!



    Well, thanks! Not meaning to sandbag myself at all. ...

    Wow, I go away for a couple of days and people start saying nice things behind my back! Kidding aside, thanks...

    Live Sound Setups....

    We tend to focus on guitars and amps here, and I was curious what any other of you gigging guys use out there for the rest of the band setup. To get the ball rolling, I'll go first...

    I haven't tried scumbacks, but I've heard good things about them. On the other hand, Celestions are only a few bucks more per speaker....

    I have "several" other guitars, and I have a real thing for Les Pauls..... But I can't remember the last time I played out with anything other than a PRS. It's been at least 6 months....

    Well...next time you're in Maryland you get to try it out. Just warn me if you are getting close to a sonic orgasm so I can turn away :)

    How do you notice that they need adjustment? Do you notice how it plays, or intonates, or do you check measurements. I'm sort of curious because a recent Les thread got me thinking about why it is...

    Odd indeed. It's probably spam, but it does remind me that although I love me a good SG, those light fingerboards that Gibson is using nowadays just look icky to me....
