Don't fall for the tube amp meme. Get one of the Yamaha THR-10 models and a couple pedals and you won't look back. If you push your budget get the Roland JC-40 with the same approach.

blackstar ht-1 is one nice little tube amp for practice, sounds good and it's not expensive. you won't be practicing with a band on this though, if you expect to be playing with friends and there's a drummer involved this won't do.

This is not terrible if you are on a budget, it is light years better than a Katana for about the same cost. Just make sure you get the new model with the controls on the front, the old reverb units sucked. These are rebranded Laney Cubs.

For a beginner, Solid state. You can get good sound at low volumes. Unless you use a power break, you have to crank a tube amp to get it to break up.

And as the previous user stated, the Katana is a good choice for it's built in effects (plus it's just a great amp). Other notable amps in this category would be the Fender Mustang GT and the Marshall Code series.

like buzzing or what? Your strings are probably too low.

Michael Green
Michael Green

Strings need to break. Grab each string individually at the 12th fret and pull away (up) from the fret board, stretching a little. The strings are now out of tune, retune them. Grab each string individually again, then retune.

Just repeat. Until it settles. If you are afraid of pulling the strings you can do some large bends (like you would playing) instead.

Using either of these the strings should be "worn in" quite quickly.

Daniel Gonzalez
Daniel Gonzalez

More like pull away from fretboard 30 times, tune, repeat til it stays in tune. It'll take forever only pulling it once each time.

Ethan Powell
Ethan Powell

Actually, now that I think about it, what I've found is quickest is to pull it like 30 times around the 22nd fret, 30 times around the 12th fret, 30 times around the 5th fret, tune, repeat til it stays in tune. It takes longer to get it to stay in tune if you just pull it in one spot.

I’ve been learning for eight months and I have got pretty good at fast chords changes and strumming patterns. I have only ever used the guitar for singing and writing songs since day one, I don’t play anything purely instrumental.

My guitar teacher thinks that I should now make the transition to lead guitar and is trying to get me to focus on scales and improv. Thing is, I only want to use the guitar as a tool to drive my songs. I don’t really envisage myself in a band and if I was it would have be as the lead singer. I do not want to play electric and most guitar solos bore me to death.

Surely lead guitar is the wrong direction for me? Can it be of any benefit to a solo singer songwriter?

Not saying I don’t want to improve at guitar, far from it. But it’s for folk and blues songs only. If I could immediately acquire any guitarist’s skills I would pick Bert Jansch as an excellent fingerstylist (although he also did a shit tonne of instrumental works).

So can learning lead help in me coming up with chord progressions and melodies and so on to then apply as rhythms?

So, my old Squier VM 70s is just sitting there, collecting dust and now that I've been playing on a 6 string for 1-2 years I want to revamp this bass. I want to get it new pickups, do I need to change anything else? Would it be a good idea/doable to turn it into a fretless? I already have two active basses (an ESP LTD b205 and a Cort A6) so I thought turning the J-bass into a fretless with some new pickups might be interesting and different from what I currently have. I have a budget of $500, what pickups should I get? I was thinking about the CS60 ones but I never tried them. Would you change anything else? The color is 3TS.

If you want tone sucking pedals go for the cheap stuff, if ypu want to sound good and have no regrets spending cash go for higher end. Don't forget most of the poorfags here spend less on a guitar than the cost of a good pedal.

Not him, but is this thing worth if you're completely new to pedals/effects and just want a way of sampling a bunch?

Problem I have with pedals is almost everyone who makes sound samples are gonna be playing through a specific amp/guitar so its really hard to get an exact idea of how it will change your own personal sound.

Other problem is some pedals aren't always readily available to test in a store either, etc.

Only if you want to sound like a Boss pedal board. Something like a Line 6 pedal modeller would be a lot better choice.

line 6 modeling
better than boss
They do some things well (like the dl4) but boss has em beat in the multieffects board. I tried both the pod hd500x and gt100 before buying one and the line 6 just sounded dry and thin. The great thing about the boss boards is that you get all of their classic pedal sounds.

Jacob Thomas
Jacob Thomas

Cool, will keep in mind. I'm a big fan of a J-Rock tone like in K-ON! and found the guitarist from K-ON! and his setup in this pic. I can only ID a couple of the pedals but just don't know shit about any of it.

I don't necessarily want to copy him exactly but at least I could try something from it at some point.

If you or anyone can identify some of his shit that'd be great.

David Ward

You'd have to be a lying pretentious cunt to say that you can't get the same quality out of a solid state

Leo Moore
Leo Moore

Adjust the neck until it's just barely concave, lower your strings until they start buzzing, then move them up slightly. Replace the nut if the strings are too low already at the headstock, or re-cut the slots if they're too high.

Then just re-do your intonation at the 12th fret. Nobody gives a shit about pickup height, you can mess with it to find the "sweet spot" if you really want but it's all personal preference as long as there's enough distance to stop the magnets pulling on the strings.

Thomas Martinez
Thomas Martinez

well i am not him and everything i said is completely accurate.... except i accidently said to introduce harshness to a tube you simply introduce even order harmonics, i actually meant odd order.
introducing slightly upper order odd harmonics to a tube will render very prominent and powerful tones, far more so than using an odd harmonic beginning. introducing 3rds will make it warm, 5ths will be growly, 7ths will be bright, if they are not built with the lower order EVEN harmonics they will not have these qualities, although there are obviously infinite different goals people could have.
starting with a bassline other than tubes at the beginning of your chain can make it hard to introduce those lower evens.

different components deal with voltages in different ways and promote different changes, this is the reason different types of circuitry exists.
i mean saying that, i have never tried and people do all sorts of intuitive stuff so im sure you COULD acheive that and realistically it would probably just require some solder, some components and some thought.
because i am trying to talk about why tubes are not a meme you stupid fucker
desu no, all my information is gained over the past few years experimenting with synthesis, reading journals and books on the physics of music theory, i also used to read a lot on orchestration and composing, although i am not at all good at it.

what you are saying makes perfect sense because the overtones of the notes will compliment the natural order of the amp.

i wish i could play the guitar is why i am here, i enjoy talking to instrumentalists because i am surrounded irl by idiots who make terrible electronic music.

I get you on that. I know how to build tube amps and get results on want but I have no idea how or why they actually work. I couldn't list a single source because it's been from everywhere. My goal at one point is to build an analog synth but I have no time to study it. Instrumentalists can be idiots as well, i know about 12 very solid musicians personally and about 60 garbage personally(that actually play more than twice a week). 1 out of 5 aint bad considering I cut my teeth in punk and metal bands where it was more like 1 in 50.
