  3. Introducing myself. New to Canadian Guitar Forum.

    Effects Pedals, Strings and more
    Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself in this thread; as I am a big fan guitar pedals. Specifically budget pedals from Joyo, Caline, Mosky, Outlaw fx, Ammoon, Tomsline, Aroma, NUx, Zoom, Eno, Behringer and more. I play bass on a ESP 6 string with Radial and Sansamp preamps, my tube-works...
  4. How To Build Your Own Passive DI Box (easier than you think)

    Effects Pedals, Strings and more
    We needed a DI Box to finish a project behind the scenes at Next Gen. Since we have all the parts on hand, we figured, why not make one? Get more detailed instructions (wiring layout and schematic) on our site: Build Your Own Passive DI Box (video included) Many of our commercial customers...
  5. Tutorial Boss Katana Mini - $2 Mod for MASSIVE Tones

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    I'm not sure this qualifies as a tutorial since the explanation in the video leaves much to be desired, so I'll break it down further here... The method is simple... Disconnect the wires running from the amp to the speaker and connect them from the amp to the common lugs on the switching jack...
  6. Building a Powered Cab

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Hey guys... was looking to upgrade my amp, but the ones I want are outta budget and/or not finding any used for sale around here. Started to look at the idea of building a nice cab, and adding an amp, preamp and power supply to it. Master volume and nothing else.... just a powered 50w(ish) 12"...
  7. DIY - Files for Fret Levelling

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    I was looking online at some DIY solutions for tools for filing down and levelling frets. I've seen some nice ones online for sale that are essentially a file glued to an ergonomic piece of wood for about $60. Figured, could probably make one. Anyone try making their own? I'm looking online at...
  8. So what's the best deal on a bare bones 5F1 Champ kit?

    Amps and Cabs
    Is there even such a thing (bare bones as in, no tubes, no speaker, no cabinet, not even the chassis or turret board; litterally just the bones aka electronic parts)? I also don't need pots and jacks and wire (got all that), but there's not likely to be a kit that doesn't include that stuff...
  9. Wax for wax potting?

    Guitar Building/Mods/Repair
    Can anybody help me out with finding a good place to get wax for wax potting? I hear the best thing to do is use a mixture of 80% Paraffin Wax with 20% Bees Wax. A good online spot to pick it up cheap would be cool, but somewhere I can drive would be most ideal. I live North of Newmarket, but...
  10. Build Thread My first build. Trinity Tweed Deluxe 5E3 with photos.

    Amp Building/Technical/Repair
    Hey everyone. I began my first amp build a few days ago. A Trinity Tweed Deluxe kit. I started a thread over at TDPRI and have been posting photos over there. Here is a link to the thread at TDPRI: http://www.tdpri.com/forum/shock-brothers-diy-amps/274205-trinity-amps-tweed-deluxe-kit.html I...
