    Dude, you just put Lightwave out of business.
     
  6. pagers make funny noises into pickups also.

    i like using a "personal massager" on the strings myself though.
     
  7. That's actually kind of cool.. the remotes I have don't make audible noise unless I have a massive amount of gain though.

    Hi,
    Maybe you can figure out how to play 'Amazing grace' using the remotes:D
     
  9. Try holding a quartz wrist watch (not them digital ones, you need one with hands) close to your pickup, you'll hear a 1 second blip delay effect!
     
  10. if u get an electric drill and hold it near a guitar it comes through the pups. it effects the magnets or something. i dunno if it works on bass

    He does that all the time.
    I have been to a MH concert a couple of weeks ago. The singer was funny: He reminded the audience of what city they live in and which day of the week (Friday night) it was after every song.
    When they played # of the beast he was so drunk that he totaly messed up the solo. Well, he probably would have anyway.

    By the way, I can get really scary noises when I move my bass close to my computer screen.

    If you have a crummy wireless system and you live in just the right part of town, you can turn your rig into a very expensive AM radio.
     
  14. Simply yell into the pickups. Great!
