    what was the first Rock POWER Ballad?

    Of course Cambridge has published a journal essay on the topic. And of course it’ll cost you $25 to know the answer. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/popular-music/article/abs/power-ballad/33764F82EAF2A3EBD19A77A5DC23827F#

    MT15 lead/clean switch with Morningstar MC6

    Yeah I was just reading that Line 6 doesn't isolate the ground on the switching system. So it can create a ground loop and induce hum when connecting to another amp.

    MT15 lead/clean switch with Morningstar MC6

    You'll see in this video that the FS1M is just your basic latching footswitch. I don't know why the manual says not to use others.

    What Are Your Favorite Amps To Play?

    I'm still looking for my hands-down favorite clean sound from an amp. I like my Electra-Dyne with a Blue Note in front to brighten it up, but I'd love to get the tone I want without a pedal - for cleans anyway. Curious to try a Badlander. Or a Matchless :rolleyes: Mesa Dual Rectifier - I have...

    It’s not a canoe paddle!

    This is why some ingenious YouTubers are making guitar bodies out of concrete, and necks out of aluminum. A) can live in a trunk just fine B) great for rear wheel traction in winter

    One Guitar vs 53 Amps (MT15 & Archon 50 included)

    Jon has done similar videos before. Really like his playing. I agree that listening to 50 different high gain examples is a bit fatiguing in one go. I can’t do it myself, and I like high gain tones. But I don’t think of these videos as really having that as the main purpose, actually. More like...

    Chime machine?

    I forgot to reply to this. For me, ‘chime’ is a sharper attack, bright, but with some grit and harmonics in those upper midrange and treble frequencies. I think it combines well with a ‘plunky’ guitar tone, but there are probably a number of guitar setups that can get you that. I keep coming...

    Change pickup rings?

    Another vote for black. I may have a chance later today to do a quick mockup for you.

    My first time playing on a stage in front of an audience when I was younger, we only had two songs. I was rhythm guitar and vocal. The other guys were so nervous too, they never stopped to tell me they couldn’t hear my singing. I hadn’t turned off the mics mute switch. I discovered this after we...

    I Have The Best Tone In The Universe.

    The question remains: is there still room for improvement?

    DST, Yes or No

    If it’s good enough for Iceland, it’s good enough for me.

    Name 5 Guitarists you’d love to see convert to PRS

    Haha, that’s a good question! I think it’d be similar, but for different reasons. With Mayer, most of the commotion was about PRS “making a Strat”, since he was already a PRS player. The SC594 is pretty well established, though, even sig models like the Joe Walsh Ltd. But Bonamassa has...

    Pedals or no Pedals

    As a spice, not a main ingredient.

    Name 5 Guitarists you’d love to see convert to PRS

    Joe Bonamassa - Just to see the guitar corner of the internet explode. Plini - Great player and I really like his music, but I’ll be able to take him more seriously when he drops the headless guitar for a PRS. Ian Thornley - I basically just want to see my favorite guitarists use a PRS at...

    Chime machine?

    I’d be replacing the neck pickup to get hum cancellation. Single coils can get pretty noisy at my location unfortunately.

    Chime machine?

    So I think the ticket will require 2 or 3 pieces. 1) Vela Satin Semi-Hollow, 2) Firebird bass pickup and some complimentary treble pickup, 3) a Vox tone out of the Synergy preamp system I use, or a UA Ruby.

    Chime machine?

    I feel the same way about my Johnny Hiland which has a 53/10 set in it.
