Re: cover band question

Thanks for your comments guys. You have made me more at ease about the future :D I think our band is definitely not bad - and most of our listeners told us we were great. A few of them were shocked when they found out that the bassist and I had only been playing 14 months each. But most importantly,...

cover band question

Hey All.... So my band has already gone through about 3 different people in various parts -and I feel that we have a solid and responsible group of people (I hope?). We have about 10 covers now and will be adding 2 a week or so. I have a few questions now about playing live and audiences. I'm always...

Re: do you move?

I generally move when standing up and playing....unless I'm playing a solo. Then i just look at the fretboard and stand still (while playing the solo!)

Re: New Strat

congrats on the new strats! The both look nice.

Out of curiosity, is there much of a noticeable difference between the highway one series and American standard?

Re: New Bass Day!

yeah, i never anticipated owning a bass this nice. I always figured that I would buy a cheap SX bass from rondo when I finally got around to it.....but this was too good of an opportunity to turn down!

New Bass Day!

Hey All, The bass player in our band decided that playing bass wasn't for him. (after 3 months) He decided he was going to sell it. Then the next day, he informed me that he wanted to pick up guitar for fun. I told him that I would trade my Ibanez Superstrat w/ SD Hotrod set for his bass. He readily...

Re: i need a new amp

how about a Crate V series tube amp? I bought my Crate Palomino v32 from GC as a display model. It's been great - although the input jack needed replaced. It has a great sparkly clean tone, and the OD channel is good for anything but metal. I don't think that this series should be compared to the ju...

tube question

Hey All, I blew out my first tube ever last night...It's funny how that happens going from bedroom practice levels to playing above a drum set. Now I have a question for you all. I looked up what my amp uses - I love the sound and don't want to change it. Crate Palomino v32 - groove tubes • 4 - El...

Re: band woes

so our vocalist is working out great! We just put up a CL Ad and I got NINE drum responses. We sifted through them and came down to two based off the responses. I gotta admit, some of the emails I received made me laugh. Two mentioned being in jail, one made way too many crude comments, and one said...

Re: Valve Jr. in band?

yeah, it does seem pretty loud. With the music we're playing, it's not to important to have loud cleans. When that situation arises, I end up playing the part w/ my strat. My friend got a 1x12 Blackheart cab. That thing can get LOUD. I'm rather jealous of the natural OD he gets from it, but I would ...

I'll say 40 shipped for the zombie. If no one wants it now, i'll probably just hold onto it.
