Is it too much to ask?

There is a night and day difference between a well setup guitar, and one that you find laying in a back alley covered with deceased rat bodies(Guitar R Us.) Unfortunately, it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find a quality, well setup, sanitary, guitar in just about every retailer out there. Even smaller sto...

I could go out and try a bunch, but that isn't really indicative of how they will react or sound on my Legacy. Generally the result you get with pedal "X" on say a marshall, is not the same as on a vox or mesa etc. Thats why I'm asking Legacy users if they have any experience in the same scenario. ...

The only "problem" with using different distortion pedals with an amp is that the pedal will color the amps sound with its own, so if you like the pedal's sound, then good, if not, you're kinda stuck. But someone would have to be exceedingly anal to say that you couldn't at least get a Vai-ish like ...

I'm taking AP music theory at my high school and I'm running into the same problems a lot of people seem to be having. All of the things they teach us there are just what not to do in four part harmony music. I don't plan on ever writing four part harmonies. And if I did. I would do whatever I wante...

I've always thought DRs had a better over-all feel, and sound than other strings. However, I've never bought a set that didn't have trouble. Either a string is bad or it's impossible to intonate properly. I once bought a 35 dollar pack of DR bass strings, and every single string was unusable. Grante...

I'm no expert on tube amps, but check the input jack to see if it's loose. The problem you are having is exactly the same I have with the bass amp at school, I think there's some faulty wiring because it'll do what you described even though it's tight and doesn't wiggle around. So have that checked ...

Are you sure you're saving the patches properly? Because if you turned the "channel" volume up high to compensate for a lower-gain patch to equalize the volume, and then switched to channel 2 to adjust it without properly "writing" the previous data to the first channel, I think that could cause a v...

Even the stock DS-1 has an amazing tonal range. Mind crunch to chunky rhythm to searing lead with a single turn of a knob. And to mine and many other's ears, sounds good through both cheap transistor amps as well as big tube rigs -and- is a good starting point for many well known mods such as Keeley...

You should be able to set the volume levels for each channel and save it as a patch. My first idea would be that your master vol. is turned way up, but you said that it happens even with it down..so I'm not really sure.
