    Yes, one of my alltime favorites. Not only because of IA's playing - I could have enough of that on his solo records - but especially because of the catchy songs.

    Mm, hooking up with a mixing board is a great idea. I can have access to a shitload of mixing boards and mic's so i might do that.
    I can fix a volume knob for my headphone so that wont be necessary.
    Recording my amp with the pod sounds awesome ... but i'm wondering if i would actually do that.

    But i mainly want to use it to hook it up with my pc so i can play at low volume through my stereoset AND with a decent tone. And so my girlfriend can sing along and we can record covers together.

    Or do you guys have a other suggestion for this?

    This is a very cool clip, and Jeff's playing is great as always. I hope to see more of this when it's released, thanks for the post!

    The SAHB-2B Blackout Metal pickup is.. I can't record anything since my PC is in for repairs, godfuckingdamnit:(

    But I can tell you how it compares to my EMG HZ-3:

    -The gain is a HUGE difference, so much more!! I have to lower the gain on GearBox ALOT.
    -A little bit more low end
    -I can't play on any clean patches:lol: It just sounds distorted:lol: I have to put the gain to zero!
    -Looks better
    -Empty booster hole:(

    Yeah I will record when I get my PC back I promise!:kickass:

    ALSO:

    Tomorrow I have a gig with my friends band (he who has the ESP Scythe Alexi CS). The drummer left for his GF's band, which also is gonna play there, so we got the other guitarist on drums. I had a week (less than a week) to learn 2 songs. The prize is a shitload of money, and it's a 18+ venue (wow finally when I get into a 18+ venue it's me playing:lol:)

    And 2 acts on a talent show in february, and my band is gonna play at a festival:kickass:

    Dude, didnt the AHB-2 had a switch to choose the output level?

    With the jumper removed, you have a high output bridge humbucker that’s still compatible with a neck pickup or the clean channel on your amp. However, with the jumper in place, you unleash all the raw power, incredible output, and untamed aggression. The pins can also be wired to a mini-switch or push/pull, for an on board boost!

    But it'll just become a useless switch:lol:!

    Yeah, there is these 2 pins, and a "hat" you put on them to max the output. I guess you could wire a switch to them.

    But I don't have a switch to use. The EMG PA-2 switch is... I can't take it off. I guess i'll have to buy one and wire it.

    :)

    Why is your switch useless? I have an ahb-1 AND a MM-04 - which I also use for most of my recordings.

    You buy this (SPDT switch, or on-on switch):
    [​IMG]
    For 2 euro's.

    And then you remove the jumper (hat) and wire it like this:
    Yeah, that square is a pickup.

    Because the PA-2 isn't the MM-04 with an EQ. And the blackout has plenty, plenty of gain.

    Thanks man! I knew it was wired something like that, although.. I did go to electrician school for 2 months:lol::lol:

    But.. I want the style of the switch as I had it.

    like this: http://www.thomann.de/gb/goeldo_el013_minischalter.htm

    In black, or nickel. I dunno if that one is an on-off switch like I need. Know of any switches in that style in black/nickel?
