Hello customsforge friends :D, hope you all are having a nice week. I've been thinking about upgrading my Peavey Rockmaster (cheapest guitar ever), I've been thinking about buying a EMG pickup, but I'm not sure which one to buy... I don't fully understand the difference between passive or active pickups... the guitar already has a bridge pickup which is not bad, but I'd like a better sound... I've been trying to pick from these two, the H4 and the H4a http://www.emgpickups.com/guitar/humbucking/passive-humbucking/h4.html http://www.emgpickups.com/guitar/humbucking/passive-humbucking/h4a.html any advice would be appreciated
Hello there, i'm hoping you lot can spare some of your knowledge. I'm currently looking for a cheap amp solution (£200< preferably) that'll provide plenty of effects since i like to play a variety of songs. I'm currently leaning towards a Vox vt20+ or vt40+ which weigh in at £140 and £180 respectively. They feel a little overcomplicated to use however. I've also given the Roland Cube a go, it doesn't offer the same number of effects but the loop you can have is a pretty useful feature. I'd love to hear some other suggestions, maybe a cheap pedal and amp combination or something? :) The sort of stuff i'd like to be able to play in a sort of check list. - Decent reverb effect - i play electro acoustic so like a sound a bit like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjAunOUNrGU - The Police - Might learn some of the Smiths in the future - Some rock stuff, ACDC, Queen - Bit of Hendrix - An effect for songs like the XX - Nirvana - Arctic Monkeys
