  1. I'm also a fan of Pat Metheny, good to know he's with ASCAP! Good luck to you as well! Thanks again for the info!
  2. Thank you for your reply!
  3. So it's come time for my band and I to sign up for either BMI or ASCAP, and I'm not sure which is the best pick for us. We play original jazz fusionish music, if that makes a difference. I've heard varying opinions, some saying that BMI pays better, some that ASCAP has better benefits, etc. What do you guys/girls think?
  4. Thank you for your reply!
  5. Thank you for your replies!
  6. So I was playing along with some music, and my phone (what my speaker was plugged into) fell. When it fell, the 3.5mm plug came out, and as I reached to plug it back in, the 3.5mm plug touched the 1/4in connector that was plugged into my guitar. I heard the buzz sound that you hear from the speaker when a live plug touches a surface. I am wondering, is it possible for that to have damaged my guitar in any way? Could it have sent a current through my guitar and hurt any of the electronics? Since there was electricity going through the 3.5mm plug, and it touched the metal on my connector which was plugged into my guitar. Strange question, I know, but my mind tends to wander with these things unless I ask someone about it.
  7. I was recently given an MXR M82 Bass envelope filter, and after trying it out on guitar for about an hour, it seems like my amp may have a slight loss of volume. I didn't have the amp on loud, it was only just above 2 (it's a tweed Fender reverb deluxe reissue, 22 watts I think), but I did experiment with the whole range of the pedal volume. There were some moments of extreme bass, more than I've ever heard from my guitar, but whenever that happened I backed off and changed the pedal settings. Still, I wanted to ask if anyone thinks that could have damaged my amp or even my guitar pickups in any way. It's worth nothing that even though my amp was only on 2, the pedal probably raised the volume by at least a number when I clicked it on. Still not huge volume, but enough for me to wonder if the neighbors might hear it (they live close). What do you guys think?
  8. Thank you! I appreciate your response!
  9. Thank you! I appreciate your response! If a pickup did come into contact with enough liquid to do something, what would it sound like? Would it be volume or tone loss, or would it just not work at all/sound very crunchy?
  10. I sneezed while playing guitar today and a small amount of spit got into the space between the pickup frame and the pickup on my neck pickup. Will this harm the guitar? It was plugged in while it happened. I tried to wipe most of it away, but it seems like a small amount may have gotten in there. As far as I know the pickups are unpotted, if that makes a difference. This may sound silly, but I am a bit worried. Please let me know what you think!
