My gear

When bands or studio folk approach me for work they ask about this. Of course gear isn't everything....

I have a lot of guitars, but when I play out or record, I use some of these:


Keys: if I gig for you I will probably have some but not all of this:
I mostly use Ableton Live nowadays because it damn near never crashes; I have used Protools extensively in the past.
My home studio includes a RME Fireface 803, AKG 414's, Shure SM81's, Shure SM57s, a super sweet Horch RM2J, an Avalon 737 preamp, a TAB mic pre, a Manley mic pre, gear I built, a really nice UA ADDA, and lots of fake keyboard/amp/compressor type plug ins.

My home studio has a very nice Genelec near field setup with Genelec Subwoofer and Meyer active EQ pro; my main room is tuned by Bob Hodas Acoustic Analysis
I have extensive studio experience working in different engineering capacities professionally for over 10 years and semi professionally for 20 more.
