  1. Thanks, will look into these. Do you know the average cost for a shop to install them?
  2. I currently own a Schecter C1 Custom, which I love but developed a loose connection which I looked at but was unable to fix. Since the shops where shut for repairs I ordered a new guitar. Orginally the Ibenez 2018 RGRT621DPB bu after a month still never came. So I bought a Jackson JS 22 Dinky Arch Top, which came really quick. For a low priced guitar seems really good overall(although cant really compare as not much experience with different ones). I found solo stuff easy to play with my fingers flying over the frets at a breeze. But I found when playing rhythm songs with distortion sounds a bit muddy. But i'm guessing this is expected from the stock pickups which are Jackson® High Output Humbucking. I'm thinking if I changed the pickups then this would be an excellent guitar. I play a lot of rock/metal stuff like Joe Satriani, Metallica but also Mozart, Beethoven, Bach but with distortion. For example Solfeggietto by Cpe Bach but with the distortion that starts from low end first string up to high up and also my own stuff. So looking for ideas for good pickups that have plenty of distortion, low end but also good for solo stuff that doesn't sound muddy. So my question is does anyone also have experience with this guitar and what do they think? Can you recommend any better pickups to upgrade the guitar? Thanks in advance James
  3. I currently own a Marshall DSL 40C, which I plug in to a Marshal JVM C212 2x12 Cab and a Peavey Valveking 4x12 Cab. I prefer the distortion through my boss Me50 using the DS-1 and reverb on. I love the combination of the two. The thundering bass for the Peavey and the cleaner sound from the Marshall Combined. I play stuff like Metallica, Joe Satriani and also songs from Mozart, Beethoven, Bach but played through distortion on most. Anyway after the Marshal DSL40c creating a buzzing noise wanted to try something different. People on forums where saying the Peavey stock Sheffield speakers could be better. Although sounds good to me. After researching eminence speakers and watching a very good metal video showing lots of different eminence speakers with the same riff repeated for each type. Loved the thundery bass of the Swamp Thangs. So found a site where you buy the cab and pick your speakers and they will install them for you. Went with another 4x12 with two Swamp Thangs and two CV-75s installed in an x fashion. Also went to different guitar shops and tried some amp heads that where available. Ended up getting the Paul Reed Smith MT15 head. But when I tried my new 4x12 cab it sounded muffled like it had blanket over it. At first thought it was the new amp but then swapped with the Peavey and sounded excellent again. My question is this. After reading about speakers needing to be broken in to sound better, is this the problem or will it not make much of a difference? So should I give it a chance and keep playing to hope it will sound better or will it probably not get much better? I don't know if to contact the company and try to return the cab or ask if they will just swap the speakers with some different ones. Maybe I should of just bought a cab with Vintage V30s or greenbacks that most cabs seem to have in them.
