  1. The thing is with this pre and power amp is dynamic headroom. It was designed for an acoustic instrument so the transient peaks are preserved like studio monitors rather than clipped or compressed. This kit is for players who like a capital Z in their zzzzzing. Admittedly at this price, who can complain but if someone is buying into the hype, it's important to preserve the headroom through the whole signal chain with this kit. Otherwise there's not much point in making the investment and let's face it, there's plenty of kit out there which does the job perfectly well at the same price point (or lower).

    NGD - vintage Yamaha content

    I have two at the moment. One has a set of Armstrong 57 PAF's in and it's very hard to tell the difference from a LP. It makes some nice jazz noises on the neck pickup too.

    Joe Dart Question

    Mark Bass speakers have a very distinctive sound which contributes significantly to the burpy tone he gets.

    Worst Audition Ever!!!

  5. The Gallery are correct, it's a problem with the piezo. I had similar issues with the piezos on my 6 string. Just get a replacement, they are cheap enough and it will save you a load of faff.

    PRS John Mayer errrrm Strat.

    I was quite impressed with how they sounded on youtube videos. More convincing that the 'strat' sounds on the regular shaped models like the 509 and 513. But two and a half grand is crazy money for that sound and playability.

    Bye bye Zoom G3X, hello...

    You're right. I've made a start at messing about with it but the interface isn't very intuitive. Looks like I'll have to study the instruction manual.

    ''Olympic level funk''

    I suggested to Smoove and Tyrrell that they approach Jack Stratton and talk about a shared tour. I think it could be a phenomenal show. Smoove were enthusiastic but not a lot of progress seems to have been made in the couple of months since.

    ''Olympic level funk''

    Yeah the harmonies are a neat trick and he can get away with it as a tenor vocalist. Really making the most of his vocal ability!

    ''Olympic level funk''

    Particularly his drumming but he confesses he can't go a day without playing guitar...! He almost switched majors at university onto bass when he became disillusioned with drums.
