    Poze cu chitarele noastre

    Inca un Charvel cu Kahler (in curand il primesc) 1986 Model 5, Japan, doze Jackson USA (J80, ceramic de data asta, pe Model 4 am J50B alnico) Gotta love these guitars , mai ales cand starea e chiar bunicica pentru varsta
  2. * Repaired a Dunlop Crybaby Wah. Owner wanted everything stock, so just plain maintenance: - changed the original Carling switch with an identical one (it was very crackly even if I tried to clean it), and I also adjusted the action of the pedal on the switch, so that it is more easily engaged; - fixed some cracked solder joints; Works great again. * A Fender Precision Bass came in for a setup. It had a dead straight neck and horrible rattle/buzzing at the first frets. Now it plays great, and I also cleaned the fretboard + fretwire is cleaned/re-shined. As you can see, this bass is actually brand new, even having the protective foil on the pickguard and also the tuners haha. * Two Boss BE5 Multieffects came in for some general fixing: - both had the pots cleaned and the jacks as well - on one I had to redo a pad on the DC in jack, and redo all the solder joints of all the jacks on the pcb (a lot of cracks) - on the other in addition to redoing all the solder joints on all the jacks, I also had to change all the micro tact switches and also redo the previously lifted or completely destroyed pads, using thin resistor wire; maybe not the most perfect way to redo a pad, but I regularly do it like this with good results, if it is really needed and the pads are totally missing. They work great now First one: Second one:

  5. Multumesc Adin! ****************************************************************************************** Updates: *This Reghin 1976 3/4 violin belonged to my gfnd's late grandfather, and is in need of some general maintenance, which I will do in the future: - so far, I gave it a thorough cleaning (very hard crusted dust from sitting over the years) - will need a new bow - new nut / new bridge / possibly new tuners - some black staining on the fingerboard - the case needs some work (derust, latch fixing) *Blade California in for some tinkering. Sounds great now! This guitar came through a courier from a different city. - redid almost all the wiring; had to clean an older(but good) Alpha pot. Had 250K before, but sounds much better with 500K now. The battery snap was missing, so I added a new one. Bridge pup changed to Duncan Custom Custom, and I needed a lot of autoadhesive foam to get it at normal level haha. - fretboard cleaning + fretwire mildly cleaned a bit, setup and some nut adjustments. The customer wanted the trem just a little bit above the body, and also to make the saddles parallel (they tend to be hard to stay in place neat, but I got that sorted out). Also made the springs noiseless * Setup on the same US Fender Stratocaster 40th Anniversary that was in last time. This time, the gauge is much lighter and the trem has much more float in it *PRS Mike Mushok Signature Baritone Setup + Fretwire polish (had a grindy feel to it before), now it's smooth and nice. Adjusted the nut slightly (the thick strings were snagging, and the thinner ones were too high). I also cleaned the electro parts. You can go crazy with low action on this, since the gauge is 14-68 (with minimal fret rattle with 1 mm to 1.2 at the last fret!) , but I settled for an almost dead straight neck with 1.25 to 1.5 mm at the last fret. The intonation was nowhere near where it should of been before, but now it's good.
  6. * Fixed a cracked neck(did not refinish) and did a setup on an entry level Flame guitar(nut and saddle adjusted). It really plays decent now * Did some tinkering on a Kramer Baretta , but unfortunately due to some aftermarket modifications to this guitar I could not do the setup correctly, as the jackson floyd on it is different that the stock ofr floyd,and does not give enough saddle travel to intonate the E and B strings finely on the upper register. This will come back at some point for a total rewiring(has some issues and the solder spots are really cold), and a new trem. Would need the fretwire sides sanded and smoothed out also. The neck pickup ring is also broken and needs replacing, and there are several strange scratched on the fretboard and back of the neck. Cool guitar nonetheless! Also waxed the neck back and made the springs noiseless And the issues I mentioned which should be fixed in the future (the owner needed the guitar urgently and the next operations will take place in the future to fix them): And a comparison with the additional saddle travel which would of been needed to properly intonate some strings, if the original tremolo had still been on the guitar (the other trem is an OFR from another guitar):
  7. Vand pedalele/efectele din titlu, am si some samples de ici colo in niste videos de pe youtube. Va rog sa le cereti daca doriti, in PM. Precizez ca niciuna nu are modificari/umblaturi ,nu am intervenit dpdv electronic/mecanic, deloc; cum le vedeti asa le-am luat si eu. Transport platit de cumparator, contact PM va rog. Toate preturile de mai jos sunt mai mici fata de cat am dat eu pe ele, si nu includ cat am dat pe transport + la cele din Japonia chiar am platit vama, fiind cu declaratie vamala din Japonia. SOLD >850 Ron < *Maxon AD900 Delay Japan varianta cu cipul mai ''dorit'' 2 x MN3005: analog, luat direct din Japonia, il dau si cu adaptorul original pt priza de US (110V) dar si cu unul pt EU(220v) , 12 V ambele. Este superb, 600ms, si mai less gritty/deloc chiar fata de AD999 ce are 900ms si e overall mai murdar si gainy in repetitii. Dupa mine, e probabil cel mai bun delay in varianta de 600ms, ca naturalete si cum sta in mix. SOLD > 350 Ron < *Boss HF-2 High Band Flanger Japan Green Label: analog, tot luat direct din Japonia, dupa serie e facut in Martie 1988, nu am adaptor, e o varianta mai cizelata si utila fata de BF-2, facand doar anumite frecvente (octava) din peak-ul de flanging, facand cumva sunetul nealterat, dar avand cumva si flange sound pe langa; Very good > 300 Ron 350 Ron < *Boss CE-3 Japan Black Label: analog, tot din Japonia luat, dupa serie e facut in Sept. 1982, foarte vechi, si suna foarte bine, fara issues si alte cele, nu am adaptor.

    Legatura jack nou - no tone - no sound

    Vad ca exista shield paint in cavitate. Vezi sa nu fie shield paint si IN cavitatea de jack, posibil sa se atinga hot cu ground (am mai vazut asta, de aia zic) Sau, bornele de la pots sa atinga shieldul.
  10. * A Hagstrom Super Swede came in for some overall tweaking: - some nut adjustments - fretwire polishing - fretboard cleaning - rewiring (cleaned the old pots, good quality CTS ones, usually just need a thorough clean!) - removed some rust and lacquered some original screws black (those for which I did not have replacements) - installed a set of Lace Dissonant Aggressors (also had to solder some stock wires on them that came loose from their solder points -> no biggie, it happens if the surface on which the solder should adhere to is not correctly sanded) - usual setup: restring, intonation, neck - the bridge inserts were completely coming out of the body with almost no resistance, and the ground wire was almost broken in the hole, so I fixed those as well * Fixed an Ibanez Mostortion pedal: - it had some dead caps - improper soldering on some parts - the protection diode was fully destroyed - unfortunately the IC was also destroyed, so I ordered one(this particular pedal has an obsolete/discontinued IC), but for the time being, a 4558 will do
