Musicians Seeking Musicians / Clutch Tribute Seeks New Front Man
« on: October 04, 2012, 12:29:05 AM »
We are an established Clutch Tribute Band called Tight Like That.  Unfortunately we recently had to part ways with our singer, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors...but the show must go on, so we\'re currently holding auditions.  If you think you can pull off that Neil Fallon sound, hit us up!  We are based out of JoCo (Smithfield/Clayton), typically practice once a week (however are about to go to twice every two weeks for a while), and shoot for about two shows a month.  Sometimes more, sometimes less...but average two.  You can see a list of all of our previous shows from this year (minus a couple from earlier this year that aren\'t on there) at  The only show we still have on the books right now until this is all worked out is Nov. 10th @ the Rock Shop in Fayetteville.  You can check us out further at or  *NOTE* We\'re not one of those tribute bands that try to look just like them (however beards are awesome, it\'s not a requirement :)), play the same instruments, etc.  We just focus on the music.  Trying to sound as close to the real thing as possible...while having as much laid back, stress free fun as possible.  So if interested, email me at, or hit us up on facebook.  We\'re looking to make a decision don\'t wait!

Okay, I\'m sure most people could care less.  But if you\'ve wondered why the hell I dropped off the face of the planet, this is why.  I\'ve hung up the guitar temporarily to put all my time and energy in to a new business my father, brother, and I are starting up.  It\'s basically an extension of my dad\'s Motorcycle store/shop, but is gonna be a hobby shop.  Well, actually is mainly focused on R/C (Remote Control) Airplanes, Cars, Boats, etc.  But never fear, my bro is moving back from Nashville, TN to be a part of the business.  So once everythings running smoothly and settled in a bit, we\'re gonna start up a new project for sure.  So you\'ll be seeing me on the local stages once again.  But in the mean time, feel free to check out our websites for the hobby shop and the motorcycle shop.


Music Equipment / PA Head and Bass FX Processor
« on: May 07, 2007, 10:15:41 PM »
This is a Yamaha EMX660 Powered Mixer/PA Head. It\'s been used for many shows and many practices, but still works great, and is in great shape. Although it is a discontinued item from Yamaha, the ones still out there are going for at least $400. I\'m letting it go for $200.  Below is everything you need to know about it as well as a stock pic and the specs. You can contact me @ 919-225-9284.


Each input channel has a main level control, a monitor level control, and an FX send level control. They all have basic, fixed 3-band EQ - Low, Mid and High which allow a cut or boost of up to 15 dB. While there are no \'sweepable\' mids, the fixed bands provide usable tone controls for the input sources.

The first four channels give you the option of either a low-impedance XLR - with switchable global +15V phantom power or a high-impedance 1/4 -inch input, (but you can?t use both at once!). The first four input channels also have a selectable 30 dB attenuation pad for use when you?re connecting line-level gear or mics with very hot outputs.

Channels 5 and 6 are the opposite - they have three inputs each, one XLR and two unbalanced 1/4 -inch, all of which you can use at the same time!! [Although there\'s only one set of level and tone controls for all three inputs on channel 6, and one set for the inputs on channel 5.] The 1/4 -inch inputs on channel 5 are for stereo line-level signals, such as those from keyboards, synthesizers, or a submix from another mixer, while channel 6 offers two high-impedance instrument inputs, primarily for guitars and basses, but also for other line-level sources such as synths and drum machines.


There\'s a simple digital FX processor onboard containing two kinds of delay and six varieties of reverb. There\'s no parameter controls for the FX, but as they sound a lot like the legendary old SPX90, that\'s not as bad as it seems! Solo musos will be happy as there is an optional footswitch to turn the FX on and off. An FX level pot on each channel sets the amount of signal sent to the effects processor, and you can adjust the amount of the effect returning to the mix via the effect return knobs in the master monitor and main sections.Providing even more flexibility, an FX send jack can route the output of the effects bus to the input of an external processor. You can then route the output of the outboard unit back into the EMX660 via the Aux In jack, and control the level of return with a knob in the Main section. Cool!


The EMX660 is 3-bus, mono powered mixer that packs plenty of punch for its size. The built-in amp provides 300W of output power (4 ) to each of two output channels, or 600W (at 8 ) bridged.

A 3-position switch on the front panel allows you to use one of three different power and speaker configurations: the main bus to both speaker output channels, the main bus to channel 1 and the monitor bus to channel 2, or the main bus to the bridge connection. A single 1/4"jack is provided for connection of a single speaker in bridged mode. To indicate output signals, Yamaha includes a 10 dB LED level meter, but only on the master and monitor output sections.

For added flexibility, both the main and monitor output channels have a pair of 1/4 -inch speaker jacks for parallel hookup of up to two speakers each.

There are two 7-band graphic equalizers across the outputs, to adjust the overall frequency response and control feedback from FOH and Foldback. To top it off, there\'s a built-in limiter prevents distortion and protects the speakers.

Finally, the EMX660 also allows us to expand the system as crowds and venue sizes grow. The Main & Monitor line-level output jacks send the mix - post-graphic EQ and master level control - to external amps, and therefore to more speakers.

This is a Digitech BP200 Bass Effects Processor. It\'s practically brand new. I bought it right before my band broke up, so it\'s only been used a couple of times. I still have the all the original packaging, and manual. The list price is $199.95, and usually goes for $149.99...I\'m letting it go for $75. Below is all the features and a stock pic. You can contact me at 919-225-9284.

Music Equipment / Bass Rig for sale...

That\'s right folks, I don\'t think I\'ll ever use my bass rig again.  If I end up doing another project after my business gets up and running smoothly, I\'ll probably end up playing guitar instead of bass.  

I have a Gallien Krueger Backline 600 - 300W Head
A 4x10 Hartke Cab and
A 1x15 Hartke Cab.

The head is practically brand new, and the list price is $399.00, usually goes for $299.00.  I\'ll let ya have it for $200.00.

The cabinets have definitely seen a lot of road and a lot of stages, but still work great.  The grills are painted red and don\'t have the Hartke logos.  I added casters to the 15 so it\'s easier to maneuver around.  I\'ll let the set go for $100.

I\'ll even throw in my old Hartke 350W head that needs repairing for free.  I\'m moving soon and need to get rid of as much stuff as possible.  So hit me up!!  Below is stock pictures of the items, but I\'ll add pictures of the actual stuff tomorrow.

North Carolina Music Scene / America: Freedom to Fascism
« on: October 25, 2006, 10:55:09 PM »
I\'m sure some of you have already heard of this film.  Check out the website for it.  Watch the trailers and previews.  Sign the petition to shut down the "federal" reserve.  Maybe if enough of us ask local theaters to play the movie we can get it here in NC.  Hopefully they\'ll make enough to be able to put it out on dvd.

North Carolina Music Scene / Please help my friend Charles!!!
« on: October 18, 2006, 03:56:09 PM »

My friend Charles Cowper was in a really bad motorcycle accident a couple of months ago.  He is definitely doing better, but has a long ways to go.  He obviously has already been out of work since, and will be for months and months down the road.  I mean, he basically has to re-learn how to walk.  Not only is he out of work, but also his wife, so she can look after him.  Please do have a heart and click the link below which will take you to  another page where you can get the whole story as well as donate to the help Charles fund.  He has to be able to support himself, and his wife, and pay for the house they recently moved in not long before the accident, as well as pay for shit tons of medical expenses.  So please help!  Also stay tuned for a charity Motorcycle Poker Run for him, as well as a benefit show in Raleigh, that is now in the works.

Also you can visit Charles\' myspace here

and join the "Help Charles" group on myspace

Thanks for your time, and for having a heart.

Hellz yeah!  I\'ve been fuckin\' jumping off the walls.  Check it, some of you may know that on Sunday nights 96rock switches over to the national, syndicated show, "the Chop Shop".  Well, they have a contest going on in collaboration with PRS (Paul Reed Smith) guitars.  They\'re giving away one a week for six weeks.  All you have to do is send \'em an email with all your info, and tell them what guest they had on the show that week.  I thought, what the hell, and sent one in.  I come home yesterday with a message on my answering machine from the guy who does the chop shop telling me I fuckin\' won!!!  It\'s so unbelievable man.  Not only did I win a PRS - SE , which from what I can find, the list price is around seven hundred or so....but it\'s gonna be autographed by Paul Reed Smith himself!  Fuckin-A I\'m psyched.  Anywayz, just thought I would brag a little, lol.  Laterz
