Friendly reminder that any acoustic under $500 dollars is a toy and you cannot call yourself a guitarist if you play one.

How important do you think the difference between a tube amp and a good solidstate/modeling rig are? I was in a debate with my friend. He said the differences are so little and not perceivable by audiences. I told him that the differences come mostly in how much control the player has over the tone just by how they choose to attack the string, a tube amp gives a player much more dynamic range

>>61965595
Well it's cool that you already were willing to take a side and make those claims without knowing if they were true. Tubes vs SS is all about distortion. A "really good solid state" Is going to be different from a modeling amp because it may not be imitating a tube amp. Here's a Wikipedia arrival on the distortion harmonics clipping issue, the primary difference between SS and tube. It is possible for a modeling amp to imitate this completely. A modeling amp does sound exactly like a tube amp, though maybe not YOUR tube amp.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tube_sound
See harmonic content.
>>
>>61965609
It's always good to somewhat know how to play by ear, especially when jamming.
Knowing how to read sheet music is also useful since you can just rearrenge notes on the fretboard.

>>61965595
SS doesn't change anything on the dynamics, the Roland Jazz Chorus is still used in a lot of places despite it being SS. A lot of bass amps are also solid state, despite bassists using more dynamics in their playstyle when compared to guitarists.
Modelling is another story though, you really need to get the high end stuff if you want to sound like an actual amp live.

I had a 5150 with original tubes that I sold to a friend for an unreasonably low price as a favor a year or two ago, and now I regret it. I have a twin reverb and love it, but I miss having something with gain. I don't have the money to drop on another head atm, and I doubt the twin would take distortion pedals well but idk. Any ideas, or should I just start saving for a new head? I'm not really that knowledgeable with gear so I thought I'd ask here.

Dv Mark has some nice new solid state amps. Roland Cube is good. Could consider getting an older LAB Series L5/L7/L9 if you want something that'll last you and has a lot of power as well. Same goes for the Roland Jazz Chorus of course, but I personally think LAB Series stuff is superior.

Dv Mark stuff is the ''DV Little Jazz'' and a bigger variant.

Slow it down, practise to a metronome.

10-20 minutes of scales to a metronome will be very useful as well.

Seriously, do you think people who are good at guitar could play hard songs when they were starting out? No, they sucked at first. Either believe you can get good and take steps to do so, or sell your guitars and get a new hobby.

Hey friends, I just picked up guitar a few days ago, and have been practicing on an acoustic guitar I got, and I've been looking forward to getting an electric guitar.

Is there any major differences in playing between the two besides needing an amp for an electric? Is one easier to finger than the other?
>>
>>61968379
I think there's less string tension on an electric, so it would be easier to play.

>>61968379
Electric is much easier.

I have an old red label Yamaha that has a laminate top. It sounds fantastic, especially with 12s or 13s on it.
>>
>>61965278
No, it isn't.
It only sounds that way if you put 10s on it, because ALL acoustics sound that way with 10s on them.
Dreadnought-sized acoustics were designed in the 1930s to sound their best when strung with the medium-gauge strings of the era, which are 13s. Put some of those on and your acoustic guitar will sound right (and LOUD-strum hard on it and people won't want to be directly in front of your guitar).
>>
Can I play the fender mustang v2 III at bedroom level volume decently?
>>
>>61969558
Yes
>>
>>61965595
Your friend is more right than you know, but mostly because audiences don't care.
All they want is the music to sound good, that's it. They could give two shits about the tube/SS/modeling debate and whether the guy is playing a Strat, Les Paul, or even a shitty knockoff guitar.

I like tube amps myself because they generally are lower distortion, and the natural compression is very musical to my ears.

I don't see it as worthy personally, it costs a lot, has no rest for your arm/wrist, the surface to rest your thumb on the back of the neck is small, and it probably costs a lot to mantain (although I heard it was titanium or some alloy so damages shouldn't really happen)

Typically, bolt-on gives the worst fret access. There are exceptions, like the Ibanez All-Access Neck Joint, for example. If you want fret access, neck through is unbeatable.

Having a solid top doesn't mean anything if it's built shitty, and lots of those $200 guitars are. Laminate sounds just as good as a solid top, provided the build quality is comparable.
It's just that most laminate top acoustics were shit-tier, so they sound like it.

>Laminate sounds just as good as a solid top

Out of the box, a nice laminate guitar (of which there are maybe 3) will sound maybe as okay as a entry level solidtop (Yamaha makes some for $200~, or you can pickup a GS mini for $300 used). With time, however, the real wood will change with more play, whereas the laminate won't. After 5 years, there will be a hell of a difference. Laminate guitars cannot be taken seriously and should only be used as instructional tools. Any guitar that will be played to sound good needs at least a solid top.

So im going to try and build my own guitar over the spring. Does anyone have any pickup recommendations? i want something vintage sounding that focuses on clarity and that will play metal

Thanks

if you want vintage sounding you want low output. If you want good for metal you want high output or active preamp. To get both just add active passive switching.

Hopefully you guys can help me out.

I'm new to the guitar world, and I'm dead set on the Epiphone Les Paul Standard, how much should I buy for it used? I see the price for it in the 300-350 range (used).

Also what's a good amp that would go with this?

Thanks!

>>61972539
For amps, maybe like a Fender Mustang II (v2), then connect that guy to your computer, and that would give you a bunch of different sounds to play around with
>>
>>61972594
I saw some videos of it awhile ago and just figured it would be like 500, and even then thats crazy. Who would actually pay money that much for that, I just feel you would be mocked by other people on stage

I'm conflicted when it comes to bass strings...

Just buy a Behringer MIDI controller. You get a LOT more DSP power in the rack unit and it'll take any MIDI controller. The main advantage to the MFC unit is the display and FAS-Link.

>>61965595
Most audiences won't matter but I find a better live tone makes me feel better and play better. As for feel, top end modellers through tube power amps feel very similar. The only really obvious give a way when you're playing them is the attack is unnaturally immediate.

I'd equate it to the feel of an 8100 for example and to be honest, for low tuned metal I prefer it over all but one of my amplifiers.

>>61976038
There is a right way and a wrong way when it comes technique. If you practice bad technique, it will ultimately be harder to play the instrument, and you'll have to unlearn your bad habits in order to improve. You can even wind up with RSI. Get a few lessons to start off, just to make sure you don't go down the wrong path.

Although I'm not disagreeing with you completely and I can read music/was a session muso/composer for a while, if he just wants to play music in a band or something of the like there's nothing wrong with that, some of the most famous musicians of our time probably couldn't read a note of sheet music, it isn't mandatory to learn, only if you want to excel at your instrument, it's a lot of time to invest in something but if you're just playing 4 chord indie rock with a ton of delay on your guitars it's a bit redundant to know.

>Overdrive
Mild gain/grit
>Distortion
Heavier gain
>Gain
Just the general category overdrive, distortion, and fuzzes fall into
Distortion and Overdrive are extremely similar in some case and can be mixed up person to person. One's idea of heavy overdrive could be anothers idea of mild distortion, it's a tough call but most pedals are sorted into that category by how much gain they have on tap. Low to medium gain, it's most likely an overdrive (tubescreamers and Klon style pedals are in this category) and distortions are usually pedals with medium to high/borderline fuzzy gain like ProCo Rats
>>
>>61978833
from memory dave grohl can't read or write music. has to communicate every idea through playing it.
>>
>>61978881
They're all just different names for the same thing. All they do is add gain to your signal to make it more distorted. The names "overdrive" "distortion" "fuzz" etc, are for how they distort your signal. Overdrive tends to be milder distortion so they tend to keep more of your guitar's sound. If you care, they tend to have what is called "asymmetrical clipping" to make them sound more like toobampz. Fuzz is on the more extreme side of distortion adding lots of gain to produce "square wave clipping" to give a more intense sound.

Some overdrives can do what some distortion pedals do and vice versa. Some distortion pedals are acually fuzz pedals. Either way, they all do the same thing. They're just names people like to throw around.
>>
>>61978881
They all do the same thing but except gain may refer to a simple clean signal boost, or it may just be another distortion. Distortion is the general term, more specific(though ill-defined) terms are overdrive(tube-like distortion) and fuzz(goes to 10 and beyond). However you will also see these terms mixed up all over the place. The thing to keep in mind is it's all marketing, and the name doesn't really tell you anything.

You could buy any Schecter Diamond Series, ESP LTD 400+ series or PRS SE with better specs and they'd be about the same quality.

First, get the right size screw for it.
Second, put a fucking spring on the screw before screwing it into the pickup
Third, push the pickup down into the hole so that the screw sits flush.
Fourth, when that doesn't work, hang it up on the wall as modern art.

I used to do that a lot, then I decided, eh it's good enough and it's been like that ever since.

I always try to keep my EQ knobs around 6-6-6, adjust gain and volumes to taste. If my amp is very bright I'll turn down the presence/if it's dark I'll boost it a little.
>>
>>61976339
Same as any other pickups. You plug your guitar into your amp and start playing.

So I assume the Tone Zone single coil sounds as good as the humbucker version?

Joe Duplantier's sig is a dual humbucker tele.
It's also ugly, I don't really get it.

what the fuck is wrong with my hands?
its been 3 days since i put new strings and they already feel dirty and i feel bumps on them while sliding.
i always wash my hands before playing and wash them in between long sessions is there really no country for sweaty hands men?
>>
>>61981092
I don't know either, the same happens to me. What I don't get is that I live on the coast, and my friends two streets down hasn't got any problem, so it really is sweat.
>>
What's a good chorus pedal within a $200 price range?
>>
>>61981092
>>61981374
Sweat + dust does it. Also dead tissue from calluses.
>>
>>61981408
I don't know how dust rusts strings but if it does, that makes a lot of sense, the house is always dusty.
I also found that ernie balls last much less time if you're sweating compared to d'Addarios.

Might be worth investing in Elixirs, I can usually get about 2 months out of them before they start to go bad.
>>
>>61981547
I would if I gigged, but I can usually get at least a month out of my strings before they actually break.
>>
Am I the only one who really takes a while to change strings on an electric? On acoustic i can tell right away when the strings start to go bad but with electric in don't seem to notice it as much.
>>
>>61981567
Fair enough, look into one of those string cleaning products, I got one of these ages back and the can lasted me about 4 years lol. Works well. After moving to Elixirs though I don't use it as much.

>>
>>61981608
no man. I always play strings until they break. I had the same pair of strings on my acoustic, martin regular bronzes for 2 years before I broke a string. My electric has never had a string change, still has the factory d'addarios after 3 years. I play daily, but I don't play a ton of songs with whole step bends. I do change tunings almost every time I play tho, I play some slide. It's a bit odd to me since I always hear about people breaking strings, and I strum pretty fucking hard sometimes. I guess I just have a good bridge.
>>
>>61981905
BTW, I hate elixers for that reason. I hear people saying they "last longer, about 2 months" and I think wtf? To me they don't last as long cuz after a couple months the coating starts to fray, which I really don't like.

Only if your amp and cabinet setup sucks

I laugh at shitters who own one of these and a low-tier amps like Peaveys, Marshalls, Blackstars, Laneys, Fenders, Oranges, etc.

Of course, even if you can read music you'll still get yelled at for not getting the fries out to your customers fast enough and not cleaning up the prep station.

Too cheap an amp and you'll never quite get a satisfying tone.

anon pls

It's voiced the same.
It's just in a smaller-sized package.

>>61982105
>low-tier amps like Peaveys, Marshalls, Blackstars, Laneys, Fenders, Oranges

Laneys, Marshalls and Oranges are well respected British made amps. Peaveys are/were well-respected USA amps, same with Fenders.

The only brand there that is even somewhat less-respected/mediocre is Blackstar but they still make decent quality amps.

Actually owning one of these and one of the brands mentioned above is a pretty good idea as you can use the Fractal as a pre and the amp as a poweramp giving you a much more realistic tone.

What's the secret behind a smooth satin neck? Can I just sand off the gloss of my cheapo Ibanez and apply satin to it?

I realised how fast a neck doesn't depend on its neck shape or neck thickness too much.. It's all about that fucking smooth satin finish.
>>
>>61982105
tbqh the 5150 really is the best bang for you buck amp. It's better than anything you've mentioned so far. I use mine with fractal and impulse responses.
>>
Hamer guitars, yes or no?
>>
>>61982401
yeah, you can sand it off. In fact, fender makes some relics with sanded away lacquer necks. You do not need to apply satin, just put a light coat of oil on it. I use pure boiled linseed oil. There's a few different oils that work, but don't be a pioneer. Look up what oils will work in advance and make sure you get the right thing.
>>
>>61982674

But what exactly is 'satin'? On my Prestige it just feels so fucking smooth.

Can I use tung oil on maple, would that give the same effect?
>>
>>61982708
Satin is, in layman's terms, a paint finish. It will usually be sprayed on with an air compressor. Most oils are simply used to give an unfinished neck some protection, and aren't permanent. You need to reapply oil occasionally. Tung oil is a thicker oil that will take a long time to set and protect and stain an unfinished neck more. Mostly tung oil is used as a finish in it's own right rather than just to protect an unfinished neck. It will take a few days to set and may be used to build up a gloss finish. I don't recommend a tung oil finish on a neck. To give you an idea what the finish is like, it's similar to a rifle's stock.

What makes satin feel smooth is that it is rougher than nitro or poly finishes. This prevents your fingers from creating an airtight seal. Essentially, any textured finish, including bare wood will have the smoothness of a satin finish. In fact, if you buff a satin finish enough to make it actually "smooth"(not just feeling smooth), it will become sticky!

I have a $100 gift card to Sweetwater, what pedal should I get?
I already have a Digitech Digidelay, multi chorus, Tubescreamer, Deluxe Big Muff, and a DS1
>>
>>61982708
Satin is just a term for the way the finish feels or reflects light. Guitars currently default to gloss polyurethane finish. There are satin, matte, and semi-gloss polyurethanes for finishing work as well.

I can't comment on Tung. Teak oil is the close to satin poly imo. It's simple to apply and is a mixture of poly and other oils/solvents.

You can touch up any finish with around a 600 grit sand paper to taste.

Just put a new pickguard on my MM. <3
>>
>>61983720
They're made in the same factory as Schecters and ESP LTD, they're not bad quality, but they cost usually more than the latters
>>
>>61983359
Fender, Gibson, Steinberger, Strandberg, each one made guitars and built their company on their own knowledge of instruments.
Chapman Guitars on the other hand, bear the name of someone whom I had never heard before, who isn't a luthier, and are built in korea because his friend owns retails stores and has some handy contacts.

Plus they're ugly, they look like some kit guitars with a finish on.
>>

hes also a twat

i'd like to point out that leo fender was not a musician and also thought truss rods were a dumb idea for the longest time
>>
>>61978730
Oh God this, brass or bass sheet music? Easy peazy, piano or classical guitar? Die in hell.
>>
>>61984196
I'm sure he wouldn't be so annoying if someone knocked some sense into him, but I bet having his own name on a brand of guitar and getting popular so fast probably boosted his ego ungodly high.

>>61984202
Vigier also thinks truss rods are dumb, but supposedly their necks hold against pretty much any condition since they're 10% carbon.

They're comfy to play and I like the layout.
>>
>>61984320
I think they're really ugly and don't like how they feel or sound.

Not bashing it, but it certainly isn't my thing. I think it would help if I were into genres where they've typically been used.

Have you played one...? I would NOT just order one without playing one since they're so weird to me.
