[GEAR] I posted a photo of a setup my family got my dad for Christmas (since he had to sell his when me sister and I were born). This is just an update post with some video/photos of him playing, and very generous gifts that were sent to him!

Here is a video of him playing for those who are interested

Here is a bunch of gear that was VERY generously donated to my dad by u/deanmass that includes, but is not limited to… • a couple shirts • 4 guitar chords • many picks • a guitar stand • a ‘Big Muff’ guitar pedal.

The first post got over 25k views and many, MANY nice comments. Thank you all for your kind words, we appreciate it very much.

And as my dad requested, a message straight from him to u/deanmass:

Thanks so much for the generous gifts. I am already using everything. You must really love the guitar. I was very humbled when my son presented them to me, many blessings to you👍🎸🎶

What does an octave pedal do?

I’m a beginner bass player who is kind clueless on gear and pedals. So from my knowledge, an octave pedal created another synthesized sound that is a octave below the note your playing. But I hear some people say that an octave pedal just lowers the pitch of whatever note you’re playing. Also what was the pedal Michael League used on Young Stuff

[Question] EMG/EMGx Telecaster Set Opinions

Hello, I was looking for a noiseless Telecaster pickup set that is less twang but not metal. The EMG T Set has a lot of positive feedback about being versatile. There is also the X series which has more headroom EMG X TE Set

I would love to hear some opinions on these! And other versatile active/noisless pickups. I really appreciate being able to discuss this stuff with yall

[GEAR] Epiphone EJ200 question

I'm thinking of buying an Epiphone EJ200. Anyone have this guitar? How do you like it? I'm looking at 2 different ones right now. One is a 2012 made in Indonesia with solid top and passive K&K pickup. The other is a 2007 made in Korea. Not sure if the top is solid or not on the MIK. Because of its sunburst finish, I couldn't tell by looking at the side of the soundhole. Anyone know if the 2007 MIK models had a solid top or not?

[PLAY] Luar, original song!

https://youtu.be/fG1mE0UTTfM

This is the video of my original song "Luar" (the name means "moonshine" in Portuguese). I play classical guitar and Brazilian cavaquinho in this one. Also, I play a couple of DIY percussion instruments: a salt shaker as my "shaker", and my wooden desk as my "surdo".

Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend! Dimitri.

I can understand mistaking the bass model. Unless you know Warwick I can forgive not knowing the different model names. The cab and amp tho?
