    Breaking strings due to topwrapping

    Been topwrapping for 3 years, and haven't had any trouble. Now, that I'm in a band for last few months, if I'm having trouble hearing myself over everyone else, rather than turning up and everyone telling me I'm too loud, I tend to hit the strings harder in an attempt to be heard. Well, I've...

    Just curious about your thoughts and experiences on this...the band I recently joined/formed has been practicing weekly in a decent size studio, 2 (sometimes 3) hours @$30/hr. split 5 ways ($12 each).

    Sam Ash gets Les Pauls again?

    My friend visited the Sam Ash in Huntington Long Island and he told me they have a bunch of Les Pauls hangin' on the wall. What happened, I thought they weren't a dealer anymore. I was shocked to hear it, I figured it'd be all over the LPF. Can anyone shed light?
