  1. Best of luck with the repair.
  2. I don't know any more than you do but I'm glad you like it. That's what counts. Or well done. 😉
  3. I presume, based on a quick web search, you mean a Shubb model 3 since you didn't specify, possibly an S3? Yes, they're great if you can live with not being able to clamp them on the headstock. Glad you like yours.
  4. Usually a tiny amount of mineral oil is plenty. Do be careful to avoid actual lemon oil (rather than the scented mineral oil that generally passes for "lemon oil") as it can damage a nitro finish.
  5. The Fender site says 12": https://www.fender.com/en-US/electric-guitars/stratocaster/player-stratocaster-floyd-rose-hss/1149403500.html I guess it's possible MF etc. ordered a special run but I think that's unlikely.
  6. AFAIK, no. I'm fairly certain it's all SS. If you suspect a battery issue go ahead and swap in a known good one. Maybe spray anything accessible with contact cleaner.
  7. Now that you mention it, my Roland has acoustic simulation built in. I've never used it but if the goal is something that sounds more-or-less acoustic it might be worth a try. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, there isn't a DI or an extra channel available. Anyway, it turns out to be moot for now. We can't play the song because of copyright issues. According to the powers that be, since we're streaming services, we have to be extra anal about copyright.
  8. Interesting. The pin came out of my old one too. Seems like a design flaw in an otherwise good product. Me too.
  9. It should be double the 4 Ohm rating but into 8 Ohms, AFAIK. That should be sufficient for most needs.
  10. Lately I've been playing electric in praise band but this Sunday we're playing "I'll Fly Away," among others, and an acoustic seems more appropriate. Unfortunately, there's only one DI and it's spoken for, and I don't own an acoustic amp. My Roland Cube 80XL has various amp emulations but nothing for acoustic guitar, although there's a nice, clean Jazz Chorus model. OTOH, I have an SWR LA12 bass amp. I'll have to mic the amp in either case. I'm not going to be playing for tone snobs but I don't want it to sound like crap either. Looking for suggestions. Thanks.
  11. Every amp manual I've ever seen said bridging doubles the power but into twice the impedance, i.e., an amp that puts out 400 Watts x 2 into 4 Ohms in stereo can put out 800 Watts bridged but into 8 Ohms and a 4 Ohm load is no longer safe. Personally, I wouldn't run a speaker beyond rated power but if you must, keep the volume as low as you can get away with. Bear in mind that 400 Watts RMS (continuous) is a lot and in most circumstances very loud. You'll hit peak power more-or-less frequently depending on the style of music and the venue but it sounds like the speakers are designed pretty ruggedly.
  12. Somehow, my D'Addario Artist capo vanished. As much as I like my Shubb, it's not as quick to use and doesn't clamp onto the headstock. I found another D'Addario on eBay that was missing a little plastic gizmo for attaching a tuner but the price was right. It arrived Saturday and I have some preliminary impressions. First, it seems to be made for a fairly thin neck because the tension adjuster is almost "wide open" for my electric. Second, this is the model with the grip on the fretboard side of the neck instead of the back like my old one and that's taking some getting used to. Anyhoo, without further adieu, here's a pic:
  13. Congratulations. Happy New Guitar Day.
  14. One of the Crest amps unbridged will work just fine. So should the Yamaha by itself. You'd only gain an extra 2 decibels of headroom going from 250W to 400W anyway. I have no idea where the notion of an amp exceeding a speaker's capacity comes from. My background is HiFi gear and in that realm you don't want to exceed what the speaker can handle. No need for more gear IMHO.
  15. A little late but Happy New Amp Day.
  16. Congratulations on surviving the gig. Outdoors should have been okay and I hope you took whatever precautions were possible. A lady from church just returned from a family vacation to Florida and now she has COVID in spite of being vaccinated. Let us know if you or any of your bandmates develop symptoms.
  17. Looks like it's 20 Watts X2 so don't expect a whole lot. https://www.musiciansfriend.com/amplifiers-effects/traynor-trm40-reverb-mate-40-combo-amp Still, free is free. Congratulations and Happy New (Free) Amp Day.
  18. I've had a Cube 80XL for a while and it's more than adequate for my humble needs. Cost me less than $200 used. Oddly enough, it has a "line out" but our church sound guy mics it anyway.
  19. Sounds like they're linear pots rather than audio taper. In any event, Epi's are great guitars so congratulations and Happy New (White) Guitar Day.
  20. If you have a good independent music store nearby they might have a box of random parts. I'd be interested to know what exactly is happening. It's possible the knob is slipping on the shaft. If not, the gears must really be chewed up.
  21. AFAIK the "Even" part rhymes with "Steven."
  22. Happy birthday! Congratulations and Happy New Guitar Day X2. 🎉
