Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Jupiter intermediate alto sax on craigslist, JAS-769GN, made in Taiwan in 2006, in great shape, with case, strap, mouthpiece and extra reeds, for $20. Insane. The Yamaha 4C mouthpiece it came with is worth more than that. I'm not sure yet if I like it better than my Yamaha-made Vito, but it plays we...

ubertar are you the creator of said device?
It didn't occur to me until you asked that that I should've made that clear... I'm sorry if it appeared otherwise. I just figured it would be assumed, but it's not good to assume.

Re: new toy/tool for guitar, bass, uke, mandolin...

If you tighten that up and develop it into a piece I'll add a link from the site if you want. Ah wasn’t my intention to suggest that was anything more than a recording of me within the first moments of trying it out. I’ll let you know if I end up using it on a film cue but that recording will certa...

Re: Herman Poole Blount

I've read Forces in Motion. I own a copy. I'm a big fan of Braxton's music, and I met him when he was a visiting artist when I was in grad school. He's close friends with one of my professors at the time. But, yeah, the shtick thing... there's an audio recording of one of Sun Ra's lectures from when...

new toy/tool for guitar, bass, uke, mandolin...

http://www.stringhammer.com This thing is fun as hell, and easy to use. No batteries. Hammer the strings like a dulcimer/santoor/kanoun and go back to plucking normally without missing a beat. Costs less than all but the cheapest pedals. Maybe it shoulda been $35. :twisted: Takes a little getting us...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Double sided headless guitar? Received this today for review So how do you like it? That neck looks insanely thick... seems awkward. Looks like guitar scale... are the bass strings extra thick to be tight enough at pitch, or are they tuned higher than normal? Interesting idea, but I don't see the a...

Re: Fuzz Bass

There's also the Os Mutantes thing, where you fuzz each string separately before adding them together (or nowadays, for recording, you could just keep them separate to their own tracks). This avoids the intermodulation distortion that makes fuzz sound muddy. To do that, you need a separate pickup fo...

Re: Help Mixing Shakers

So long as we're talking about homemade shakers... some of my favorites are tea balls filled with BBs, wrapped in gauze tape and screwed onto drumsticks to be shaker-mallets. That way your shakes are always perfectly timed with your drum strikes. For recording shakers alone, I do the same as most of...
