These are amazing. For me they have the perfect amount of grittiness to hold on, perfect thickness, and they're purple! I love purple.

Hey man, I got this Elixer baritone set

I really like them so far, the bottom three strings (the highest being only a 12 gauge) are still quite bendy but the top three (especially the low B which is a .068 holy shit) are super thick and I needed to file my nut a little bit to make them fit properly. I also like the coating on them which I didn't expect to get at this large of a gauge.

I used an A/B/Y box to go to 2 amps at a given time. Of the 3 guitar tracks recorded for each song, 2 were cut using the Sunn + the Laney, while the 3rd was cut using the Laney + the Peavey. Pretty much the only pedal I used this session was a Superfuzz clone made by wattson. That pedal sounds huge. I also used a pigtronix class A boost for a lead at one point. The sunn rig actually strips out much of the high end coming from my guitar and functions as almost a clean bass sound to offset the guitar sound from the laney. The XXX through the 2x15, by contrast, has a dirty bass sound, so all three rounded things out nicely. I got the idea to run the XXX through the 2x15 from having previously sent guitar heads through it with good results in the past. I bought the cab off a friend in Primitive Man, and he had told me to give a guitar head a shot through it, so I did.

Look into getting an A/B/Y box to split your signal. I'm considering getting the Voodoo labs pedal in this link as it can run up to four heads simultaneously.

It's not that cheap, but I've been in love with the Schecter PT1 for a while now: http://www.amazon.com/Schecter-PT-Electric-Gloss-Black/dp/B00067R1R2

I will one day own one.

I like /u/LIBERTYxPRIME squier suggestion. But it's not that much cheaper than the Schecter.

I'd recommend checking out the book "Likable Social Media". Lots of great ideas and perspectives on there, which should give you some direction!

If you're a super beginner, get your tremolo picking down. Learn theory early on too. This is a good way to understand the basics without just memorizing a bunch of scales which is what tons of guitar players do

Budget? Needs? Is it just for vocals? Need more info.

That said, this is the best speaker money can buy at that low of a price. If you need to amplify more than one thing, get a simple 4-6 channel analog mixer like this.

Start with an entry-level kit... Many are high quality and are available for under $500


Plunge into double bass? Sure! But if he's serious he needs to learn 4 way coordination...


Go find a nice cheap double pedal and a hi-hat stand that has swivel legs

As already mentioned, you want to do the opposite of your setup. Use earbuds covered by over-the-ear muffs. Something like this works fine for ear muffs, and assuming you already have earbuds, a lot cheaper than spending money on isolation headphones from someone like Vic Firth.

You might check out The Zen of Screaming series. I've only seen the first one and as the reviews point out it's a little thin on the actual screaming/growling technique but more on general singing techniques. It looks like the second DVD has more metal-focused material, but I don't have any firsthand experience with it.

u/SolomonKull · 2 pointsr/metalmusicians

You need an "audio interface" for your computer, which is a box that has several mic inputs. Plug that into your computer, and your DAW should be able to record each mic/line on an individual track.

The alternative is to use a mixer with as many mic inputs as you need. The downside is that you're only going to get a single stereo recording with that, meaning that you need to get your drum mix through the board sounding as best as you can before recording, because post-processing isn't as easy when you only have a single drum track vs one track per mic.

If you're just cutting demos at home then a mixer will be fine, and a lot cheaper than an audio interface. But, if you can afford an interface, that's the way to go.

Get this book: Bass Guitar Scale Manual and practice scales until your fingers feel like they're going to fall off. I was a lead singer who decided to pick up the bass and it worked for me.

u/Oh_Uncle_Paul · 1 pointr/metalmusicians

Hm. I just looked these up on Amazon and it shows 250, 32 and 80 Ohm versions of this model. I'm new to this and not sure what the difference would be especially for the cost involved. I'd be plugging these in to a Samson C-que8 headphone amp most of the time.

It's pretty simple... easy to use. However, I had a hell of a time getting it set up right and with tech support. Turns out the stock Firewire card in my computer was incompatible with it, but I figured that out by myself after hours of morons talking to me from PreSonus. Their support is notoriously bad.

But getting past all that, it's a very solid device and I haven't had any problems with it since I got the new firewire card. If you don't already have one, this is the one to get.

If you want more information about this, read This Is Your Brain On Music by Daniel J. Levitin. Another cool one is Musicophilia by Dr. Oliver Sacks, but that one is more about brain disorders that cause very strange music-related phenomenon. Like the inability to detect pitch, or sense melody, and other weird stuff.
