    Finally went back into the electronics and got my project tele working. It sounds ... ok. Im sure the pickups and stuff are chinese junk. Also, a tele is just not a good guitar to convert from lefty to righty, the switches and knobs are just in the wrong place. If I liked playing it, I would go back in and get some decent pickups and stuff, but, its not really worth the money. It was a fun little project to play around with and learn on. Honestly, I think I'm going to get another kit, and actually do it up right. See what happens. This one might be destined for the dumpsters.

    Re: Guitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)

    Here is my current setup.Guitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)-20190325_172505-jpgGuitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)-20190325_172531-jpgGuitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)-20190325_175121-jpg

    The QSC drives two Peavey PR12s and the Peavey drives the Sub while in bridged mode. What has prompted me to post this is I'm picking up a second QSC RMX850 this week. My original thought was to put them in bridged mode and have each one drive drive one of my PR12s. Who doesn't like 530 watts driven per speaker as opposed to the 200 watts per ch. I am slightly rethinking my approach. A little confusing reading to me and I'm now thinking about just leaving them in parallel mode, drive one speaker per amp and just let the amp work easier. I'm sure some of you know much more about this then I do so I'm looking for some advice. This system gets used sparingly at best. Don't really get to turn it up much now that I have a little one running around and I didn't need the second amp but the opportunity arrived.

    Just to stay within the guitar topic I do have an American Strat, Ibanez 4 string bass, beater yamaha 6 sting acoustic and an Applause acoustic bass. None of which I can play well anymore. Just strum a few chords here and there to entertain my daughter.

    I'd screw it into the rack and leave it as a spare. Unless you're seeing the clip lights on the current amp fairly often I don't think you're really gonna see any benefits.

    Re: Guitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)

    So after failing at capitalism with my Laser Metronome idea, I decided to work on a VST3 software version. The beta is ready and I need to test it on some DAWs other than Presonus StudioOne before I start trying to sell it. If anyone would be willing to help out with this on other DAWs and provide some feedback, it would be helpful. It's nice to be able to let the DAW run in record mode and still be able to record in sync with the time transport without having to wear headphones or listen to that infernal click track. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1rj...mStqk6RlTXyRXv . My drummer was playing his electronic kit along with it from across the room. Any thoughts on pricing and constructive criticism would be appreciated. Rock on.

    Re: Guitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)

    I think one of my power amps is having an issue. Well I know it is but I don't know if it's normal or not and if it's not normal where I can take it to get fixed or am I better off just replacing it at this point. My Peavey PV500 which I have had for many years now keeps popping the B channel circuit breaker. It will pop after a minute or two whether or not there is a signal going to it. It is currently set up in bridged mode and it only drives my sub. I can hear the difference when it pops if I have music going to it. It is getting clean power since I do have a power conditioner. Anyone know of a good amp repair place? Or am I better off just replacing it? Currently on craigslist I see a Peavey PV1200 for 200 as well as other for not a ton of cash.

    One of our motorcycling friends is Andrew Bell, proprietor of Bell Audio Lab in Brookfield CT. He is an authorized repair station for Marshall, Mesa-Boogie, and many others. I'm quite sure he sees a lot of Peavey as well. He's the most honest, straight-up guy you'll ever encounter in life, and especially that business in particular.

    Re: Guitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)

    So I figured it would cost me more to fix then replace. With that in mind I opened it up this morning. A little fun fact with this amp is it is from 1993. At least that is what is stamped all over it inside. So it's been around and been a workhorse. I bought it used like 15 years ago.

    Anyway there did seem to be a fair bit of corrosion inside. Enough to the point where I felt it could short circuit. As best as I could I scraped away the corrosion, gave everything a good shot of deoxit and then cleaned it up. As of now the amp is functioning perfectly. Hopefully it keeps up.

    Peavey built tanks...I had a CS800 amp from the 80ís that I punished for years. Sold it last year before we moved, itís still cranking.

    Re: Guitar geekery (and other musical whatnots)

    Need some help. I bought a P Bass pickup for an old shitty bass I have, got it wired according to the diagram that came with the pickups. Now I get no sound at all, unless I touch the volume pot, and then it works. Ive checked grounds 100x, re-soldered a bunch of connections, and still the same issues.

    Any ideas what I should look at next?
