I was just hoping for a new JEM, or at the very least some brightly coloured RGs. The limited edition JEMs have been disapointing for the last couple of years. I think this is a matter of taste. However i'd like to see a jem with a maple neck. Last week i played an rg with a maple neck and i was ve...

Never tried both together but i've tried the mt and didn't like it.However it seemed to have more than enough gain on its own.I can imagine that they both sound like mush when played together.But hey,if you like the sound,go with it. Just keep in mind that Vai doesn`t use that much gain and distorti...

Since i love both my ds1 and my ts9 i use them in front of my clean channel.The ts9 set to smooth crunch and the ds 1 set to half power(gain and level at 12oclock).when i need a good rhythm/lead sound i just switch both pedals on. Sounds pretty nice,to me.

I found another knock off of an ibanez JEM and this one is the worst knock off I've ever seen. There are even no "tree of life" inlays. It looks really fu**ed Evil or Very Mad http://cgi.ebay.at/Bell-Head-ST-Ibanez-Steve-Vai-Style-weiss-B-Ware_W0QQitemZ7371048859QQcategoryZ2384QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrd...

well from what i've read so far,Steve used to compress the shit out of his tone. Now, with the Legacy his compression seems to be really low.I mean he plays with a lot more dynamics these days,hence no need for a pumping comp. I would not completely stay away from compressors,there's nothing wrong w...

Hi Stukman, welcome to this beautiful forum.You'll find some nice people here. The use of a comp is a very subjective thing.Some guys love it some hate it.I think weather to use one or not depends on mainly three things: 1. what kind of tone are you after? 2. how good is your picking in terms of dyn...

I played the JSX when it came out in Germany( In Mai?) and i have to say that i was very impressed with the clean channel. The crunch was also usable but the red channel was much too compressed and muddy. To me the amp sounded too new ( like those amps made for the kids that tune down to c, turn the...

I don't like Engls.They sound very sterile to me.If you want a vaiish tone, you need something with a warmer and smoother sound.Something, but definately no Engl.
