Ironically that's what new Les Pauls kind of sound like, with the body's being chambered,

The Fender thing was a gaffe in the second episode. The other episodes got it right, and it was corrected for the DVD and Blu-ray releases. As dumb a mistake as it was, credit has to be given to KyoAni for correcting it.

Mugi is pretty strong then, she was able to carry all of that. o.O

On another note, I need a new drum kit, mines a really old (60s) Ludwig thats starting to break. I got it from my uncle three years ago and it just doesn't sound right, and I have no idea how to tune it.

I have the tuning key and have made several attempts at tuning the snare and toms (2, one mounted one floor) and can't get it right. I also only have one cymbal, (20'' ride and a broken 14'' high hat).

Does anyone have any suggestions for a place to look for a new kit, cymbals, and any hardware I would need? I am kind of on a budget though...

How to tune a drum snare/tom by ear :

1. Do a sustained roll of 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16 around the edges of the drum skin at 60 bpm. Increase to 120bpm and check for inconsistencies.

2. Play a middle C on any instrument, then play the next C one octave up. This (the 2nd C played) is the frequency you need to tune the snare.

3. Use the tuning key and loosen or tighten each side accordingly, in this order :

- Tune all the areas half a finger directly away from the screw, towards the centre, to the note.
- Take the direct centre between the two screws, then put half a finger towards the center, tune it the same way.
- Work your way inwards with a full finger subsequently.

4. Remember to tune the circumference half a finger inwards FIRST, then the full finger to have consistency.

5. Repeat step 1. Check that each note played sustains for at least a quarter of a second, if it disappears too quickly, your skin is too tight.

This isn't the most accurate way because it is done by ear, but it should be absolutely no problem for a few months of use. Also, it doesn't require perfect pitch to do so. If you have problems with measurement, use a black string and tie it across the screws, from one end to another across the centre to ensure that you are measuring towards it.

For those who're looking for cheap guitar, well you can get a very nice guitar with an excellent sound for $350-$380 its an Epiphone Les Paul 100. My first guitar was Epiphone Les Paul 100 and I'd say that its a very nice guitar to start and nice quality ^^.

BTW Yui has a Gibson Les Paul Cherry Sunbrust Traditional, like this one:

Well not to be nitpicky but Yui's guitar is just a Les Paul Standard due to price and what's on Episode 2 of the first season. What's the difference? Standards have a chambered body meaning that inside the body lots of wood has been routed out to lessen the weight and balance, but the guitars tone suffers from that. The Traditional LP is a real LP with no routing inside, its about a couple lbs. heavier but the tone is there.

Price wise, Standards are usually $2000-$3000 while the traditionals are $3500-$5000

I wonder, since when Gibson started chambering their bodies?
Somehow for Roger Sadowsky it only did good but for Gibson- it pretty much killed it.

I believe they started this in 2007 or 2008, before this they were routing just holes like swiss cheese in the body to for "weight balance" but were still pretty heavy. A shop where I live have some late 80's early 90's LP's for about 1600, if I had the money I'd be yoinking them off the stands :P

The heavier the instrument the better
I'm saying that as a bass player, I have an Ibanez SR20TH Prestige, this thing doesn't weight much at all, it's really really lite compared to my MIA Jazz Bass

By the way, I'm not sure the JB62 is the correct bass, in the Anime you can see the saddles of the bass bridge are threaded which only appears in the JB62-US and not the JB62, and as I mentioned the JB62 features Japanese "Vintage" pickups and not the American.

If some one can send email to Kyoto Animation and ask them what model the bass it, it would be great, for some reason I can't find any contact info.

Don't know about other models, but later 2007 and the new 2008 Les Paul standard models are chambered. The Traditional model is non chambered. Meaning yui's guitar is most likely a pre-2008 model.

Since the manga started off in 2007, it is probably easier to use the pre-2007 and 2007 catalogues and flyers to trackdown the models used in the series.

If so I'm pretty sure they aren't chambered, it happens that some guitars in shops stay there for 2-3 years, I bought my MIA Fender Jazz Bass in 2007 and it's a 2006 model.

Actually since 2008 all les pauls are chambered, the traditional have bullet holes, ~10% lighter than the old solid models.
