Re: FG 800 String change fret buzz

Hi Tom How often you need to tune your guitar depends on a number of variables including, temperature and humidity, how old your strings are and how often you play. I check the tuning on my guitars almost every time I play but often they don't need much adjusting unless the temp/humidity has been va...

Re: Something new announced tomorrow

If they are saying it is "for MONTAGE/MODX" then I would assume it is a firmware update, possibly with extra sounds.

Re: NP-30 Midi problem

Hi Pgrr! I recently bought an NP-30 and I'm having exactly the same problem you described in your post. How did you resolve it? YAM-NP30.jpg Hi Duckpaint, welcome to the forums. I am not sure if the original poster ever solved the issue but can you tell me what your set up is? What sort of midi int...

Re: FG 800 String change fret buzz

Thanks for the update Tom.

So ALL the tuners were loose? :shock:

That is an odd situation. You didn't notice that when you changed the strings from stock to Elixir? I mean no tuning stability issues etc?

Re: 1977 BB1200

Hi Saul, Yes I'll get around to photos one of these days! Including this bass, I'm up to 13 Yamaha electric guitars me thinks! I have never owned more than two Yamaha guitars at one time and I don't own any right now. I prefer a variety of brands. Right now if I were looking to buy a Yamaha guitar ...

Re: How to Post Pics. - for New members . . . .

Thanks for putting this up Chris. You can indeed link to external images, although that has the potential that they will vanish if the URL changes at some point. The image below was linked to the Yamaha Music site. And the code is [img]https://t.ly/jHeB[/img] I used a URL shortener for the link but ...

It is an incredibly nice looking kit :)

Maybe buy the 22" and pad it out to reduce volume if that is an issue? Gives you more versatility for the future?

Re: Dowina Cabernet DCE cedar advice

Hi Douglas, welcome to the forums :) It won't come as news to most people that I am a huge fan of Dowina guitars but I do have a selection of other brands too so it is not all one-way traffic here :) I do have the Cabernet DCE but it is out on loan...extended loan it seems :think: but anyway, yes a ...

Re: 1977 BB1200

I am surprised Luke's BB 1200 photos are still online given they are hosted by PhotoBucket!

Anyway, don't forget to add your pics when you get time YFB :)

Re: A Silly Noob question choosing Stage Custom Birch Kit...

Interesting question and you are right, there definitely isn't much going on in this section of the forum. Probably because most people here either play the drums on their keyboard or use samples/drum synths. Having said that, from what little I know of acoustic drums there isn't really much in it b...

Re: Nord vs Korg vs Yamaha

A lot of bands , especially Prog Bands that I've seen, seem to favour the Nord keyboard. Are they more 'robust' to take out on the road or is it that they are more programmable and versatile. Actually I just preferred the Korg for piano, but for Organ it was the Nord by a whisker over the Yamaha......

Re: MODX8 Keybed issues

Hey Saul. It seems my MODX8 needs quite a few parts. Strange I only moved it from the store when I bought to my home. It never left my home until I bought it to the repair shop! The shop has ordered the needed parts from Yamaha. Hopefully it gets repaired soon!. THANKS AGAIN , Saul. That is very od...
