hey guys and gurus, matagal ko nang napansin na may mga tanong na paulit ulit na tinatanong via new threads, kasi unavailable yata most of the time yung search function, so i figured we should have a FAQ thread (na sana gawing sticky).

if you can think of a frequently asked question (and its appropriate answer) kindly post it, tapos isa-summarize ko lahat dito sa first post. objective questions are encouraged, pero pwede rin subjective, magiingat lang tayo sa pagsagot.

thanks! post away!

are you having trouble routing your pedals? kung paano sila pagsusunod-sunorin? click the link.

+1 sa guitar >> compressor >> distortion >> delay >> amp.

when putting the distortion pedal before the compressor, the clean guitar signal will be shaped into a distorted one (obviously) but then the compressor will even out the signal, making the output tone a lot less punchy and "ngongo". take note that since the input signal to the compressor is already distorted and amplified, any noise produced by the distortion pedal due to an increase in gain and the resistive components in its circuitry will also be processed by the compressor, kaya generally mas "noisy" rin ang setup na ganito. but pag inuna mo yung compressor before the distortion pedal, the compressor would only level out (boost weak signals, dampen strong signals) the raw guitar signal and the inherent unamplified pickup and cable noise, after which the distortion can do its thing without its "uneven waveform" characteristic being leveled out by compression. mas subtle ang effect ng compressor sa config na ganito but you'll have a more level guitar signal with more growl. you can have an even cleaner signal by adding a noise gate/suppressor right before the compressor (if necessary lang) :)

i think a fast playing guitar player can play fast on a good guitar, and he can play a little slower on a poor guitar.

but a slow playing guitar player will still play slowly even if he played on a fast necked guitar.

so i think speed depends mostly on the player.

i think you'll encounter intonation problems after switching from 9s to 11s, so naturally, you'll have to intonate it after you install the strings. and if your guitar has a floating bridge, kelangan mo din iadjust yung springs. regarding the truss rod, wala akong alam jan. :-D
