Recording tool: Zoom HD16CD

Through the marvels of eBay I’ve purchased a Zoom HD16CD multi-track hard drive recorder. It has built in drum & bass machine and rhythm (I think). My intent with this unit is to record and hash-out song ideas. Also to try it out as a control-surface for a DAW such as Cubase. I’m hoping that it’ll help me like it has helped others: such as those  who have reviewed it such as on this page here. At the very least it’ll be a good record & playback device to track my progress on guitar.

SA500 is actually a SA800

On closer checking of the Yamaha it’s got a SA800 truss-rod cover plate. I’ve edited the listing and set the price as “firm”. Had a sniff but waiting on a private-message with e-mail address to send pictures to. I don’t think that person will buy it and my wife reckons I should keep the Yamaha and the Schecter.

Time to Sell Up

It’s time to sell up. I’m selling three of my four electric guitars. Only Christine is staying. 🙂

Django, Jurgen and the Ibanez RGT42DX are all for sale.

$500, $990 and $600 respectively.

Check the listing on ausband.

Also selling a 1972 Marshall Artiste 100W tube amp, retubed and fitted with attenuator, ohm output selector (4, 8 and 16) and a nice spring reverb. Valued at $1200 but will consider offers over $600.

Amp and Cabinet Plans

The amp I was given for moving a friend twice in a week is in for repairs. I’ve heard nothing from the store since I dropped it off but am not too concerned. The head is 100 watts and will be more powerful than I need so I am looking at an attenuator on eBay. There is one sitting at a good price so it’s in my sights. Am very curious about the sound since its clean is described and Fender-like. A cabinet is going to be required and there’s a good one on eBay, too. Peavey 5150 cabinet with the Sheffield speakers: at a very reasonable price; that will be do nicely.

Progress

I’ve been making progress in guitar. My ability has increased a little bit but it is noticable. Picking speed and scale speed has escalated. I’m quite happy with it. Between 15 and 120 minutes of playing a day with at least 15 minutes of focused practice is what I’m putting in. That feels great to know that I’m putting in that time. My practice does need to be a little more focused over all and a little more directed towards end-goals but time is what I have to put in and that is the action-plan so far.
