Re: Twitter | stevevai: Check out the winner of the Jem 77,7

Samuele wrote:I think that among all the finalist designs, the one that Steve chose is the most beautiful! All of those entries were very nice, but I particularly like the color combination of the winner design, more than anything else.
Agreed, the color harmony and the placement of the graphic is well done.

Re: Jem Design Contest Gallery and Questions

Truly a great contest idea. Great work everyone, It was very exciting seeing everyone's unique designs and I was very impressed with all the creativity and colors. I had a blast watching and wondering what was next. Congrats to Alex and everyone who created an entry. http://www.bc-contracting.com/AD...

Re: Recording software? guitars?

Has anyone used Apple Logic? It seems to be laden with all the goods in one box. I'm looking to upgrade my recording setup as well and it seems one could get nickel dimed to death with protools. I'm thinking Mac Mini and Logic express. I have a Yamaha 8 channel mixer with a firewire DAC already. Any...

Re: 20 June 2010: Alien Music Secrets @ Orlando, FL (Jemfest

Absolutely brilliant. The wealth of knowledge is still sinking in. I will meditate about it on the plane. I've never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Vai before this weekend and I'm still surprised at how approachable he is, you get a sense of how genuine he is immediately and he makes himself very a...

Re: Vai has no feel

Wow, what a bizarre thread on Vai's own boards. I'm fairly new here and I'm constantly amazed at the wealth of information members here will selflessly share and how often the wisest of statements are made by the unassuming player or fan. This thread embarrasses me. Unless I've missed something all ...

Re: New Custom Jem from Cizmeli Kedi Custom Shop

But it's not a JEM. No offence intended at all. How much of it is authentic? The Body? The neck? Why do you think it is not a jem? I respect what you think, but i wonder why, actually... Because it didn't come out of the Ibanez factory. Which of these is the I-phone? 1)_____________________________...

Re: Win my Ibanez LACS "On Revolute" 7-string!! / pre-orders

I just received the cd in the mail yesterday and I have to say I'm very surprised. I'm no music authority nor am i a professional in any capacity but I always have some pre-conceived notion of what I expect from a new release, especially from guitarists. Dave delivers something unique on this disk, ...

What they Said!

Tubescreamer and depending on your rig's current overdrive, the MT-2 is a nice choice

Re: SO I got a new toy...

Nice! I've had the gt-8 for a few years and still have yet to master it. The gt10 looks killer. Have you set up any effects of your own yet? Let us know how that goes. Also i believe the interface for computer is a lot better on the gt10, you can visually drag and drop individual effects to make pat...

Re: Building an tube amp

Matt, Awesome idea. Careful this is a dangerous path tho. Expensive and addictive! That being said, go for it. Here are a few suggestions that I give you from my experience.(feel free to ignore them) Start with a smaller project, duplicating a X50b or any manufactured amp is tough to do. Its hard to...
