Thank you for taking the time to read the forum rules. The main purpose of this forum is to create a community of musicians and music gear enthusiasts to exchange ideas, experiences and valuable information about the gear and music we love. But aside from our gear discussions, we also believe this forum is a good way to make new friends, discuss current events not necessarily related to music and just have a good time while interacting with the other members. We are not uptight here and the goal with the rules below is to create an environment that is fun, relaxed and yet respectful, safe and informative.
Thank you for joining the forum and hope you feel right at home here!
