  1. Past hour
  2. Are you really going to attempt to justify your original snide post? How do you know what the man does or does not do to help others? Are you a close friend? No? Then (with respect) STFU bro....
  3. Well, keep in mind that all of those great Winston and Dadgad remasters of the Empress Valley Soundboards wouldn't be possible without Empress Valley releasing those soundboards in the first place. Given that Empress Valley is Moonchild, it's hard to find much to complain about in any area here. Nowadays there are about 50 remasters out there for any one new show that comes out. Anyone familiar with the Mike Millard story knows that he would probably be livid if he knew his recordings were being shared out at all. On top of which, they are being EQ'd before they are released, which would also not make Millard very happy. So, add that to the pile.

    Awesome! Thank you very very much!

    Jimmy Page Pickups

    That's an easy one. He had the pickups and the pole pieces flush with the pickup ring. Always. Kitchener 1969, with the original pickups, after he took the bridge pickup cover off: Detroit 1975, with the T-Top replacement he had installed in 1972 after the original pickup died:

    Jimmy Page Pickups

    Well I’m looking for mainly the height of the pickups, the pole piece height as well. Any photos of the setup of the pickups. I’d like to see the original pickups but I’ve yet to come across a good quality photo of the original pickups.

    Jimmy Page Pickups

    What are you looking for? There are thousands of photos of Page with the guitar. Are you looking for the original pickups on the #1 Les Paul? The replacement T-Top bridge replacement from 1972? The Seymour Duncan bridge replacement the guitar has now? The pickup height?

    Jimmy Page Pickups

    I’m looking for good close up images on Jimmy Page’s Les Paul Pickups. Whether it be on his #1 #2 or even the Black Les Paul Custom. If you have any good photos I’d love it if you shared them
  10. I remember SAJ commenting something like -some of us want a Jaguar, not a Ford- when the first signed Page luxury edition book was released, ten years ago? and some forum commenters wondered why it was better to buy that instead of the unsigned plain version. Which was fair enough at that time Now it seems Page is signing Fords and passing them off as Jaguars
  11. You’re probably right. They sell for more than double the price I paid for them now. My plan was to sell one when they reached this price, so effectively getting one for free. I paid £750 framed each, now they’re £1500+. I’ll do so when the gallery sell the last one and they’ve increased the price more But a signed photo for £1600? To buy all four of these signed photos will cost £6400! It’s nuts. No one on this forum, so far, seems to think it’s a good thing. What was the price of a signed J.P. book, however many years ago it was? At least that had substance to it. Now it’s all just cashing in, and he has a very high rating of his own signature’s worth. Seemingly higher than most of us on here agree with
  12. The footswitch is for activating the echoes on the Echoplex. The Echoplex was always on, and had a preamp circuit built-in that was also always on. All the footswitch did was to activate the tape echo recording and playing back Page’s signal. Just like stepping on a delay pedal. There was no “activating” the amp overdrive. The overdrive sound was produced by turning the amp up loud, to stage volume. Page achieved his “clean” and “drive” sounds by rolling the individual volume controls for each pickup in his Les Paul up and down. At “10” on one Volume knob, he had the full signal going to the overdriven amp. Rolling that same volume knob back to, say, “5” cleaned up the sound because the overdriven amp was no longer receiving as loud of a signal from the guitar. The Les Paul also has a toggle switch to select the bridge pickup, the neck pickup, or both. Page would roll down the neck pickup’s volume for the intro to Over the Hills, to get the clean sound, and then flip the toggle switch to the bridge pickup already set at “10”, for use when the loud part of the song kicks in. The photo you posted is from the LA Forum, 1972. So, you can actually hear him use that exact rig all over that recording.
  13. The only drive pedal he ever used live was the Univox Unidrive, in March 1971. He was even featured in their ads.
  14. Great album! Listening to Physical Graffiti Disc 1
  15. There was a recent video from an American making English tea and getting it all very wrong. The water must be boiled in a kettle, not a microwave, then it’s poured over the teabag and left to brew, usually a minute or two. Then, the milk and sugar is added, not before. The milk is only added first if the tea is first brewed in a teapot, which doesn’t happen much these days i don’t drink the stuff
  16. Thank you very much, only a small doubt, do you know if the footswitch (That can be seen in the photo below) what he was using was to activate the drive of his amplifiers?
  17. Now that’s all natural!
  18. Nice and a Priest fan!
  19. I’m not into Asian chicks, it’s hard to tell them apart.
  20. Her breasts are fake, I only like the real stuff.
  21. Kate Yoron never disappoints.
  22. I suffer from anxiety, I take Klonopin 0.5 Mg twice a day and ambien to sleep, I’m practically a nervous wreck all the time.
