I play several instruments.
In acoustic I play a pre WWII Gibson Jumbo, a 1946 Global Torino, and an old Martin.
In Electric guitar(professional) I play either my 59 Les Paul, or my Strat which has been modified (like the Steve Vai JEM)in that it now has the
Floyd Rose locking tremelo, and a (very hot)bridge pickup, and tree of life neck inlays, sometimes I'll bring out my 57 Gibson archtop double
cut-a-way F-holes hollowbody, it has the "Memphis" blues tone circuit.
I use Ernie Ball Super Slinkies exclusively.
I have a double stack of 4x12 Marshalls with a Marshall DSL100MLB amplifier head which I play through, or in smaller venues I play through a 2X12 75
watt Kustom combo.
I can also play bass, it's usually an old Univox 'Lectra, with the F-holes, and twin pickups, it's the same as McCartney played in the early
But sometimes I play a Fender Mustang.
The bass is played through the Marshall MB 450H and VBC4 cabs.
I do vocals through an MXL Genesis tube microphone with a Peavy 2600 and 215 Dual towers and two Peavy SP4's.
We use a CakeWalk Sonar V studio 100 multitrack portable mixer on the road as well as a Tascam 2488 Neo 24-track recorder in studio.
I use Cakewalk software when cleaning up a ratty track.
I suppose it would come down to my chorus or phase shifter as far as my favorite effects pedals, outside the many effects the DSL100MLB brings to the
show, but really my Weeping Demon and my big Muff, are at every gig, my effects panel is extensive, it is very hard to choose favorites.
I also play drums, mine are Ludwigs, 5 shell outfit, with high hat, crash and ride, Remo batter heads.
I play keyboards, synth, organ, ect.
I play trumpet and trombone, french horn, flute(after the style of Papa John Creech) sax and harmonica.
I play violin, I'm second seat in a philharmonic orchestra, my instrument was a gift from my teacher, it is a concert quality 4/4, is quite old and
has a clear voice with a depth and fullness not common to todays instruments. I have an electric violin which I'm experimenting with, I've put that
one through every pedal I have...new sounds!
I am a member of a working band.
We are an original material band, but sometimes we'll do a cover.
One member of the band is able to put lyrics to any tune, or lay down lyrics about anything you'd want to hear. He's been a poet since childhood, he
definitley is a wordsmith.
We play a wide variety of music, we play Rock A Billy, Rock N Roll, ballads, ethnic, jazz and experimental thrash core and techno-trance. Though I
love blues and heavy metal, I also enjoy the sounds of bands such as MCR,RATM, AudioSlave, BoonDox, Kotton mouth Kings, The Cypress Hill Mob, Twizted,
and even ICP, 30 Seconds to Mars, and performers such as Joe (the Alien) Satriani, Steve Vai, and of course Mattrach.
At present four music videos by my band are floating around the internet and You Tube.
I do not wish to de-cloak at this time so all I'll tell you is go to Garageband.com ect., you'll find us sooner or later.
Will play for food.
