I'm looking for something to fill in the low end on my bass, maybe I've found it but I'm not sure… if there's any reason this won't work, or just won't sound good please enlighten me. I'm currently using 200W + 1000W amps, 2×10 + 4×10, the 1000W is bi-ampable with active crossover. I'd like to put this thing under it all: https://www.amazon.com/Rockville-PBG18-Passive-Subwoofer-Cabinet/dp/B01NA6G1HU
I know I can listen to sound samples, and I have, but they always lack the hands-on "feel" you get from actual playing a new set of pickups which is the absolute most important thing. I'm not a new-pickup-virgin.
How do they compare to normal humbuckers or P90s?
I really want a P90 option for one of my guitars so I don't have to buy a new one, but don't want to go phatcats when I could get a Prail and have more flexibility. I had phatcats before and I ended up playing that guitar less often.
Do they have an authentic P90 feel and response to them?
How about humbucker mode, do they feel traditional or is their response different at all?
Hi everyone, I bought a brand new Squier Vintage Modified Precision Bass to teach myself bass guitar.
I was playing with the pickup knobs and i noticed that my center knob can pop out while the other two can't, which indicates some sort of manufacturing defect.
I don't mind terribly, but is this something that can eventually be fixed if it does break? Is it a big issue or very common?
Should I be taking this up with the company that sold it to me? They seem to be quite reputable so it shouldn't be a problem, but in a weird way I'm quite attached already to my first bass, even if it does have it's flaws.
Your advice on my best course of action would be greatly appreciated!
[QUESTION] Looking for first hand review of Epiphone Masterbilt Century Zenith. I am having a hard time finding reviews as opposed to adverts. I am about to get my first real-ish guitar (600-800USD I think) and am looking for recommendations, especially for archtops. Buying Used, btw.
I will try to be brief because I must go to work:
Does anyone own or play an Epiphone Masterbilt Deluxe or Zenith? If so, what is your opinion of the instrument?
I am doing y own reading and research, but I want to know: Are there any acoustic guitars that are must considers in the 600-800 range? I am looking for a solid top, no question, and a bone would be nice. (Something the Epiphone boasts). I am especially interested in Archtops.
I play a lot of folk, bluegrass, blues, jazz, kind of a bit of a lot of things. I like arch tops a lot and want a guitar with a unique sound. I like the dark, woody tones.
I am also open to a traditional round hole, but I would really love it if someone who knows anything about new archtops could toss in a word.
Edit: Also, this sounds weird considering I am talking about archtops, but what I like about the Delux and the Zenith is they can sound jazzy or not jazzy. The Olympic To me just always sounds like New York in 1920, and while I dig that, I am looking for one acoustic electric to rule them all. For a good while, at least.
