"cool guitar"

Yamaha Drop 6Published on 01/12/12 at 20:54
The Yamaha Drop 6 12 string is a fun guitar as it is 12 string electric, not semi-hollow body or acoustic like a lot of 12 strings. It has a smooth neck, the tuners do a decent job staying in tune, and it's great for playing '60s style music. There are two volume knobs for each of the two lipstick pickups (neck and bridge) which both have inner tone knobs on top. There is a pickup selector to choose all pickups, the bridge, or the neck. I'm not sure what wood the neck is made out of, but it is exceptionally smooth, especially for a more budget friendly guitar.

UTILIZATION

This guitar is very easy to play all over the neck, and really not difficult to master considering it's a twelve string. It is well weighted and therefore fairly well balanced. The shape of the guitar, while not earth shattering, fits the style of music in which a 12 string guitar would be used.


SOUNDS

The Yamaha Drop 6 12 strings will produce some really cool tones when an amp is set to clean or crunchy. While dialing in distortion is not a conventional way to play this guitar, it is still useful, especially if you want it to sound like you're playing really fast solos.


OVERALL OPINION



This was a cool guitar while I owned it, but it didn't see a lot of use. When I played in a band, I think I used it onstage only once for a ballad we played, but to have to switch through guitars is a pain, especially for a guitar that's only going to be used once in a night. It never made it onto any of my recordings, and while I kind of regret this fact, the truth is it just wouldn't have been the proper fit. If I remember correctly, I bought it to learn how to play Bon Jovi's "Dead or Alive" but never really got the hang of that riff. I ended up selling this guitar to a friend a couple of years ago. It's gone to a better, more respected place.

SOUNDS

Amateur big palm mute sound (metal) and his big fat (stoner rock and doom)
It sounds huge.
A good palm mute mastered the sound is huge I know of no other guitar palm mute sound as bad é powerful being in a group at the time or I had when I played with palm mute even the drummer does sentendait not play ^ ^
Just huge, magnificent palm mute, enjoying a sound ^ ^

The licensed Floyd Rose vibrato is a joy ropes and blocks located at the head of the guitar tuning ensures a relatively stable despite large (very large) bourinages pulled or pushed to the extreme.

Note the presence of a switch that can "bypass" the selector volume and "tone" to balance the bridge microphone at full volume .... To use this gadget rather because the button is too fragile to make heavy use ...

The only flaw is in fact the volume knob is too close to the right hand and it tends to operate by playing ...

SOUNDS

I use this guitar with a Guyatone Metal Monster directly plugged into my soundcard.

The two humbuckers sound so powerful and relatively wealthy, and the 5-way switch allows setting up a sound very serious and heavy (perhaps too much so for the low note, but he escapes from more acute round distinction in large saturation) has a piercing sound that illuminates the harmonics.

In his clear, direct, no amp, the guitar produces a nice, round which can easily pass for a Jazz bass sound on the strings. Ditto for the treble, which can be just as funky as very soft and round. That's what I love about this guitar is that it does not sound like all his guitars "vintage" in the nasal and metallic.

In disto is happiness! How fat is heavy, powerful! With a little adjustment, and by ringing the right strings you can even move from Lower! Clearly, this guitar is made for!

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for over three years and, despite its affordable price, it is almost perfect. With 24 box and a floyd of this quality is just really fun and the sound is in there!

I grew up with neo-metal and I bought this guitar instead of a 7 string! Not only does it quite filled his office, but it is also tops in the most extreme records (Death, Black (yes, )...) without sacrificing sound clear round and cute.
