    Impulse buy - NGD

    I've always liked the feel of a strat, just (generally) not the electronics. The first volume control was my nemesis, I'd always hit it at the wrong time, and turn down my volume. So when I saw this locally last night, I had it bought and home within a couple hours. Less than a year old, with a...

    Refinishing opinions and advice - Musicmaster Bass

    Been a while since I've posted here, but I can count on the fact that everyone's got an opinion, and I'll welcome any advice, so here you go :D I've got a '78 Fender Musicmaster bass that plays and sounds great, but it looks like crap. This thing has been rode hard and put away wet. That's...

    New Axe !

    Well, sort of... I have a buddy in Canada who's been looking for a new guitar, and there's so much available down here on Craigslist, that I've been keeping my eye out. Well, I just got him his new guitar - a '94 US Ultra Strat. Flame maple cap(s) on alder, Ebony board w/ MOP markers, LSR roller...

    FS: Red Hondo Lazer

    OK, so I've had this for a year. It's an awesome axe, but I've had my headless guitar fix satisfied. Just doesn't do it for me. I've got it up on CL, but if anyone here is interested, I'll cut the price for an HR member. Am asking $700 locally - make me an offer if you're interested. I can see...

    Lefty strat converted to righty

    Been thinking about doing this for a while. Mainly, I like strats, but hate the placement of the volume knob. I tried a buddy's lefty, and found that upside down, the volume knob was out of the way, but still reachable. I like the idea of the whammy on top, too. There's a MIM strat on CL for...

    New axe (G.A.S....)

    In contrast to the "other" new guitar thread, thought you all might be interested in my newest acquisition. It's an early 80's IMC/Hondo Lazer. Don't see many of these around (or even their pricier cousins - the Erlewine Lazer, which Johnny Winter currently plays). Not much info to be found...

    Posting Blues revisited

    In 2002, when I got posted to Seoul, I did a quick little tune for the party we have (see https://homerecording.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=54735&highlight=posting - the original isn't there anymore, though). It was a one take wonder, written and recorded in an hour. Since then, it's been a big...

    My new guitar !!!

    Just returned from a trip to Michoacan State here in Mexico - a little place known as Paracho, where the town survives on guitar building. Most of the guitars are cheap and mass produced, but there are a few luthiers that hand construct some amazing instruments. One of these is Salvador...

    Testing a mixer

    Wondering the best way to test a mixer if all the seller has available is the mixer itself. :rolleyes: If I bring a set of headphones, a mic, and possibly a line level device (portable cd player), at least I could check all the inputs, correct ? Any other thoughts ? Any quick way to check...

    My new 4 string toy ! Happy Anniversary to me !

    My fingers are getting sore already - first bass in 10 years ... Ibanez EDA 900 w/ Fishman bridge pickup and active electronics. Been looking at this thing in the store for months - it's a 10th anniversary present from my wife. :D She got a diamond eternity ring, so we both made out just...

    Any opinions on this ?

    Just been looking today at this bass: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/world/bass/page_ergo/eda900svf.html Plays smooth, fast, is comfortable for my hands, is thin at the nut, but looking for some opinions if anyone has recorded with one. I want to get back into a real bass for recording (been using my...

    Kevin Saunderson

    Not often in this forum, but this guy is going to be in Seoul, and is purported to be big in the Detroit scene. True ? Untrue ? Hype ? Should I make an effort ? (Shit, I think it's tomorrow ...) mike

    Help: a Song from my youth

    Been thinking of a song I remember from the 70's, and would love to play it. All the lyrics I (kind of) remember are: Sunshine go away today, Don't feel much like dancin'... Someone's gone and tried to run my life, Da da da ???? whatever and the chorus goes: How much does it cost I'll buy...

    Sennheiser MD431 II

    Going through some boxes here at work, I came across this mic. After researching it a bit, I discover it is primarily a live vocal mic, however, with my "studio :rolleyes: " location in a noisy, small apartment, I was wondering if it might be a good choice to eliminate some of the background...

    My first guitar...

    Wow, I had the urge to see if I could find any info on my first guitar, and lo and behold, I found a picture of _exactly_ what it was. A 1966 Harmony H-79 12-String, bought out of a gas station window in Havelock, Ontario, Canada, in 1974 for $75.00. I was 11 going on 12. My uncle gave it to me...

    Solstice

    I wrote this on the eve of the winter solstice in 1991, and figured it was a most opportune time to record it. http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/album.php?aid=1324&alid=-1 Looking for ideas on how to expand the tune, of if I will rely on its simplicity, and just improve the performance and...

    Why can't I...

    just write a damn normal song ? The last songs I've written have been for specific reasons, and they've taken me no time at all, but I just want to write a normal song. One that moves people, makes them listen to the lyrics, makes them want to hear it again. Even me, I want to hear it again...

    Cubasis and Amplitube and SB Platinum

    I just got Amplitube and am having a bitch of a time trying to get Cubasis VST/32 to give me a playback through the plugin. Actually, It appears it is not specifically related to Amplitude, but to all my VST plugins. Anyway, it's the first time I've tried to use a plugin for real time...
