EMG was one of my first supporters. Rob Turner the owner & creator of EMG along with the late Jack Nau are dear friends of mine. They make Pickups that are world class in Design and tones. They were, and still are ahead of their time. I used the SA,SAV,85,89 and the 60A in years past. Now back with EMG I use the EMG Passive pickups of late. EMG is the Mercedes of all pickups. They have a pickup for everyone and every style. Check them out, and Rock out!
DSL makes some the best effects I have ever used and one of the few that have stayed on my board over the years. They are like studio rack quality in a pedal. He listens to players, and Beta tests all his pedals. What makes all his pedals like the echo tap, Rotospin, Chorus vibe so good ? He is determined to make a better product and you get what you pay for with DLS . His pedals are always on my board! A great supporter of mine Dave is one of the best to ever make pedals and a true master of effects.
They are Tube Heaven in guitar pedals. I have had the echo, the vibe. All are Lush, Alive, Dynamic, and Built like tanks. All that once right in the world of guitar tone like a moment caught in time but here today! Can't wait to incorporate the new Blue Bottle Mid boost pedal into my rig. They know tubes, and are mad about making quality products. Anything you play they make will bring you closer to the search for Tone! Thank you Phil for hooking up with me years back. Stay Frosty!
Well the flagship of all BlackStar amps is my new setup. The Artisan 30 & 100. Rich and warm tone. I found a holy grail like amp for my new EP. I am happy to say I think I will be using BlackStar for a long time. I can not wait to record the new songs with the Artisan 30 & 100, and perform with them. A big thanks to Loren "artist rep" and great guitar player himself for showing me all the tones they had! I can tell you these amps kill as all their amps do. It will be on the new music coming soon!
I have had about 3 Morley wahs. I won't mention which ones but I like them all. The DJ Ashba large and mini wah combined with the new morley inductor 2 is off the charts. More vowel like and the best range of any wah I have ever used. Currently on my board and on the new Music EP coming soon. I love having the old fashion large one to step on but the smaller one is so nice for certain situations. Morley makes the best wahs on the planet, get yours now! Thanks to Bill at Morley who is one of my supporters back in the day and out me on their product CD back in the day.
A friend and a pioneer. Al Farnell backed me years ago and has made some of the most inventive guitars ever designed. His pursuit to perfection has made him a madman in the highest sense of guitar building. His guitars are the future bringing old and new tones together! You will hear them on my new EP coming soon along with most of all my old music recorded. Al Farnell is an inventor, a friend, and one of the best guitar Luthiers I have ever known! Check his website out for further info about what makes his guitars so different.
Strymon is a top of the line effects company. However I am new to them and I am using the new IRIDIUM for tracking. It is amazing so far and will be used on my new EP coming 2020. I am not a big IR modeling guy, more of an old school player real amp tube guy. However this is simple, yet sounds so good, so real and maybe better than you can mic unless you are in the right studio with all the right mics and room sound and mic pres. Just happens to be the 3 amps that created most of R&R as we know it. It's he best I ever heard for direct recording of all the things on the market so far. Kudos to Strymon for making a players box for players, of course made by real players.
The EXPERIENCE 1969 WAH made by Jerry Allen of Detrix Fx.
The finest reproduction of the CLYDE MCCOY Italian Wah
As you all know for me no one wah is enough wah. For those true vintage tones I use this wah pedal and I have owned the real mccoy and can tell you this is one of the finest wah pedals ever made. Check out his wah replacement board kit or buy the Experience Wah hand built directly from him the Master of the Wah Pedal.
Two fully detailed tape deck emulations in one
It's impressive enough that Strymon managed to pack one high-definition tape machine emulation in the Deco pedal, let alone two of them. But you don't have to dive deep to appreciate the quality of the Deco's processing - just roll up the saturation control and bask in the warm glow of the harmonic overtones.
Tap into classic double-tracking tape effects
Tape overdrive is just the beginning of what the Deco has in store. In the Doubletracker section, you'll find additional controls (both on the surface and "hidden" in the secondary knob functions) that allow you to add flanging, chorusing, slapback delay, and vintage tape echo to your tone.
I needed a P90 in a humbucker case and Tonerider Pickups had the best one I have ever heard after trying a handful of P90 humbucker sized pickups. A new artist to "ToneRider" as of September 2020 I have discovered a really great company that makes the real deal. The Rebel 90 is full range and true to the P90 sound but with even more detail. I cant wait to hear more of what they have to offer. You will hear them on my new CD coming soon. Check them out!
I recently came across a Eastman ER2 hollow body and was floored from its quality and craftsmanship. Tone was some of the best I ever heard in any guitar. So I researched the company and am super excited to soon be playing their solid body guitars. I will be using Eastman on my new EP coming out 2021. I am a big P90 fan and for my new music I am awaiting one of their SB55DC/v models like in the picture which uses nothing but quality parts, wood, and finish for a pure Rock & Roll sound. I am happy to start building my relationship with EASTMAN GUITARS. Check them out as they are on Gibson's ass and may be putting out better instruments at a lower price. Tone is all that counts!
