So i have gathered a bunch of coins and now i want to take care of my instrument. some packs of strings, oil for the neck, picks, some missing screws.

One thing that i want to replace is the tunning pegs, i have been having some issues with them for a while now, but i can't seem to find any that shared similar archetype.




Does anyone know the name, type...thing..?


Another thing that i'v been looking for is a looper, for both practice and jaming (i jam quite often with a drum dude, but it can sound quite empty sometimes with just 1 guitar and a drum and i'v always been a fan of looping stuff) besides playing on the streets for random coins is also nice and having a looper can make things far more entertaining tongue.gif

i'v seen quite a few; i really liked the TC Electronic Ditto Looper and it's probably the one i am aiming for right now.:



And also the ones like Boos RC3.

What suggestions do you good folks have?

This construction of tuners is very poor. All mechanism is mounted by those 4 little screws only. I can only advice You to buy different type of tuners even if it will end with some visual issues. I might be wrong but I also have a guitar service and never saw this type of tuners made by top notch gear producers like Grover, Gotoh, Sperzel etc...It's mostly visible in the cheap guitars and...unfortunately...It's not good enough.

Best price-friendly tuners are korean jin-ho j05 for example. In those tuners screw is only to set the tuner position but the all tuner is screwed tigh with the solid hex nut on the surface of the headstock. It's worth replacing

Yes, the tuners will be at the back of the guitar anyway laugh.gif

I own a Boss RC3, and I'd really recommend it over the Ditto looper, especially considering they're in the same price range. The Boss RC-3 has a USB connection, so you can copy pre-recorded loops to the pedal, and also has a much larger memory and has 99 saving slots. It also has a drum machine, in case you may practice without a drummer smile.gif

I was just about to write about the Boss RC30 - I am looking to get one of those myself smile.gif



It's a bit over the price range of the RC3 for certain - but here's a link from their site, regarding specs and such for the RC30: http://www.boss.info/global/gear/251/1160

And for the RC3 -> http://www.boss.info/global/gear/251/1159

Yes, I've heard great stuff about the RC-30 as well. I was tossing up between the RC3 and RC30 a while ago, but I figured I could save $150, and I didn't really need 2 tracks anyway.

Here's a video of a guy using a looper in a completely non-guitar application. I believe he is using a Boss RC-300, which is the highest Boss looper around. You probably won't be doing this kind of genre, but it's very talented smile.gif

Oh, oh, I know DubFX - seen the dude live in Bucharest biggrin.gif He does awesome stuff with the looper indeed - to be honest, I think he is one of the first people I've seen using a loop station live. Others would be Victor Wooten, Guthrie Govan and Yoav.

They start at the specified dates shown on coursera, then you get one week of lessons and related quizzes and assignments with due dates till the course ends (so if a course is two months long, you'll get a total of 8 groups of lessons, quizzes and assignments), and you have to complete and submit those assignments and quizzes by the due dates or you won't get a note of completion for the course, and also there's an exam at the end smile.gif You can also pay some money to enter a test and become a Berklee certified music producer.



I put some Schaller tuner on my Gibson and the change has been so big. I really recommend this brand, they are precise and very stable. Regarding Loop, I have it on two of my pedals, in my Line 6 DL4 delay and my Pod HD 500. It works great on both. If you want one more specific with more parameters to change you can go for the one that Cosmin suggested or this one.

I am not a home right now, so i haven't had the opportunity to mess around with it. I am hoping to do some recordings as soon as i return.
Although i fear that what i need (Sound Recording Wise) its a PC that can handle music software like at 100%.

Uh oh, bummer man sad.gif I'm sorry to hear that you're hindered from expressing yourself .. When would a new PC arrive in realistic terms?

I heard good things about RC-3 looper. Once when I was selling my chorus ensemble twin pedal I was offered RC-30 in exchange.....regret not taking it even now years after. I think having a looper is very useful for both practice and even some experimental performances live.
