The lines illustrate the bracing... Special made wooden braces glued on the top and bottom of the guitar, inside the body of the guitar. Without bracing, the construction would not be strong enough for the tension of the strings and various forces/impacts from everyday useage. The bracing has an effect on how the top and bottom of the guitar vibrate in ...

I am not a drummer and I'm not affiliated with these folks, so if you down-vote, please tell me why in the comments so that I can improve my answers to this forum. Here's a site that tells you how to build drum shells either ply or stave. You'll have to have some woodworking chops however: http://pdgood.us/drumshed/buildmethods.html A ply drum shell is ...

If you have access to a looper pedal, such as the Boss RC series, they have a line in. Connect the pedal to the looper, and then your MP3 player to the line in of the loop pedal.

While maple is the standard wood used for bassoons, in Europe mostly Bosnian mountain maple is used. In the colder climate the tree grows slower and so the wood has more growth rings per inch improving stability. Even then maple is inferior to Grenadilla, since it is easier damaged by moisture, lacking the resins contained in Grenadilla, so it is more ...

I'd have thought that merely plugging the player into the input would do the job. The volume can be attenuated via the gain pot on the amp., and also by the volume control on the player. Turn it down initially, as there will be a propensity for lots of sound. The speaker extension output - it may already be switched, and cuts out the internal speakers of the ...

Firstly, big appreciation for making your own sounds from scratch. It will lead into a personal style of music and a better understanding of the anatomy of sound. The fact that layering makes the song "a big mess of sounds" tells me that you're not aware of mixing and equalizing the synths. I'd see the layer of sounds as a scale: if you add a sound, in ...

Without going into a great, detailed oration, I'm going to suggest just two fundamental things that I think would help you in your pursuit. In his comment, Basstickler touched upon a great point - music experience. If you understand music theory and basic principles of orchestration, you can apply those concepts to synthetic sounds and learn how to voice ...

The effects loop on a guitar amplifier is between the preamp (where the gain and EQ controls sit to modify the tone) and the power amplifier (which pretty much just makes everything louder). Your specific amplifier has a multi-channel tube preamp with a solid state power amp. As your amplifier has an effects loop, you can feed a non-guitar input in through ...

You can take a passive DI box and run it backwards, or get a specialized box called a ReAmp to do this.

Unless your speaking about Baroque instruments, I'm assuming you're referring to making Oboes and Clarinets, and Bassoons. Flutes and saxophones are obviously made out of metal. I am unsure of Bassoons, but I know that the preferred wood for Oboes and Clarinets is Grenadilla because it is a very, very dense, heavy, and sturdy wood that resonates well. ...

On professional quality pianos and mediocre quality grand pianos, the middle pedal maintains only the notes that were maintained when the middle pedal was being depressed. This helps in any passage where a note or some notes should be maintained while some notes far away should not be maintained throughout. On some mediocre or poor quality upright pianos ...

I had my tone pot turned into a spin-a-split. This gives you control over how much you split the humbucker, from both coils full to fully split. I don't like how the pickup sounds in either of the extremes, so having this control is very useful.

THIS IS SIMPLY A COPY OF MY ANSWER FOR THIS QUESTION, WHICH HAS BEEN CLOSED AS A DUPLICATE (@Meaningful Username asked me to add the answer to this post.) Looking online, opinion seems to be split about the merits of doing this, with some sources pointing out that you can simply buy a fretless neck for a reasonable price. But I certainly remember bass ...
