  1. The latest 'recent article' is May 31st. The "news" is just as old. Can't remember the last time I saw an "expert" review. And every time I visit the only things listed under "topics" are political ramblings nothing whatsoever to do with music or music gear. So when is someone gonna pull life support?
  2. Google Vinnie Colaiuta, he's toured with Zappa, Sting, Herbie Hancock and as session drummer his list of albums is enormous. He has won over fifteen Drummer of the Year awards from Modern Drummer magazine's annual reader polls. These include ten awards in the "Best Overall" category.
  3. Why not? The Eagles has always had talented members who were quite capable and accomplished solo musicians. Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Randy Meisner, Joe Walsh Timothy B. Schmit, all were outstanding solo. With the Eagles it was always the whole being greater than the sum of its parts kind of thing. So I hope they continue and produced new hits. I would only hope they just don't fall into the trap of only playing the hits from their extensive back catalog. New members brings new inspiration.
  4. Really, so this is what has come to? Can I get NORD red?
  5. A few years ago I bought the Mixing Engineers Handbook. I think I paid $10 for it used. It without a doubt made more difference in the quality of my recordings than any piece of hardware or software I have ever purchased. https://www.amazon.com/Mixing-Engineers-Handbook-Bobby-Owsinski/dp/128542087X
  6. Try a set of P90 pickups, the single coils will give you a more defined sound and lower output. There are several quality PAF style humbuckers that will also give you a more vintage sound with lower output. I personally like Lindy Fralin pickups. One will cost the price of the guitar but that's chump change compared to the price of some boutique guitars or a Gibson LP. I have learned the hard way to never take a $2000+ guitar to a gig! Buy the best sounding pickups and electronics if needed and put them in well made cheap guitar. Then when you get that inevitable ding or scratch you brush it o
  7. Biggest plus for live use is control of stage volume, and mix. No more putting the drummer in a plexiglass box. And the wide variety of sounds & kits.
  8. I use a Fishman Aural Di, it has different response models based on the body style of the guitar. It also has a feedback suppressor. It does an excellent jobs of making the guitar sound natural live without a lot of technical details. I like it for that and the fact I can change guitars nad plug in my nylon string guitar and twist a couple knobs and it sounds great. You can probably get better results by using a parametric EQ. Which is what I do when recording but for live processors like the Aural DI are hard to beat for simplicity.
  9. Bought this pedal and I am extremely satisfied with it. I use it straight into the PA best bass pedal I have tried so far.
