About Me

i enjoy writing and recording songs and I live in Dallas


I always wonder what other musicians record with so I'll make my page like I'd want to see and discuss gear. Since you're listening to others songs anyway, it's an opportunity to audition their gear as well, since 99.999% of the time we have no idea what's recorded with what (or what that gear sounds like to begin with). Especially on an amateur level. Most of the gear below represents very affordable equipment for the average Joe, however took years of acquiring. The Keeley stuff is great but I usually only record with the compressor and where needed, the Keeley modded Metal Zone (beefy!). They're really meant for tube driven amps. Especially the TS-9 and Blues Driver

(ideally I'd love a Vox ac30 with celestion blues for chimey cleans but a number of amps would do for dirty. Mesa, Marshall, Bugera, etc. Truth is for recording I often just use the line6 and pedals direct. Sounds fine. I break out the amps when I need something extra or specific, otherwise they're for live use only)
