    The following comments pertain to a 4+ year old SR, so if you have a Special with the (apparently) redesigned EQ scheme, some or all may not apply.

    1. The bass control's f3 is VERY low. I will...

    Would be interesting to see pics of the shipping box and the cushioning material inside. This is a GC issue, not an EB issue, so I'd exhaust all available options with GC before burdening EB with...

    I agree with Rod. Play what's on them, let them break in for several weeks until the zing goes away. You may wind up actually liking them. Then, if they're not working out, start checking out...

    I use the latest incarnation of the Tech21 Bass Driver DI to accomplish, in terms of EQ, what my Stingray (2.5 years old) can not do on its own with its on-board preamp. Blend at zero, Drive at...

    I'm with Golem. Use the tone controls to get the sound you're after (hopefully taking the person at the board into consideration, to make his job easy). In your case, use the tone controls to get...

    Unfortunately, identical pinouts do not identical ICs make. My first thoughts when I saw this were differences in a) recommended minimum supply voltages, and b) quiescent supply currents. (Re. the...

    Hey, thanks for the pointer.

    I see the Aguilar pedal at the top. I've been waiting for them to make a pedal that duplicates the preamp section of a TH500, with its variable drive control (not all...

    Nice pedal board, by the way, and nice compressor. Probably one of the best stomp-box compressors available. What is the board itself? It has a real '50s/retro vibe to it.

    I just read that piece you referenced. There's useful info there. There's also some that is, shall we say, a bit less-so. I am trying to err on the side of graciousness.

    With an outboard EQ, you get to choose what frequencies you cut or boost, and you get to choose how wide the Qs are (based on what device(s) you choose to buy and how you use them). You also get to...

    Yes, on a Charvel/Jackson 3B I own. The volume drops a bit and the mids completely change when both pickups are selected. The sound is smoother. Also the attack softens noticeably. It sounds,...

    I'm pretty sure it's related to phasing issues from picking up string vibrations at different points on the same string. Oftentimes it sounds like a midrange suckout, or some other anomaly in the...

    IMO, all adjustments should be done with the strings totally loosened to the point where they're literally flopping around, lying on the fretboard like overcooked spaghetti. Yes, yes, yes, I know...

    There can be problems with making such a mid-stream change.

    First of all, a first-time buyer of a SR (for example) is probably going to want it to sound like the ones he's already heard. Repeat...

    By "dimed" I mean the volume control. That's the term's traditional meaning. Sorry for any misunderstanding. If your volume control is all the way up *and* you're also boosting the tone controls,...

    This sounds to me like a classic gain-structure problem. Even with a 20 dB cut, a dimed Bongo is a crapload of level to be sending anything that "anticipates" a signal at roughly preamp level. Crank...
