I’ve had a bunch of people ask me what gear I use, so I took a couple photos of what I’m using these days. I invariably switch this up to try new things, so maybe tomorrow this will be outdated. I recently sold a lot of the studio stuff that I wasn’t using much. Sold my G5 and bought a Macbook– I really want a mobile setup so I can do some crazy shit like go camping and do some recording in a tent or in a state park. But anyway here is what I’m using in the studio right now:
Apple MacBook, Digi 002, Line 6 PODxt, Reason 3, Fender Toronado, Peavey Predator, Gibson J30, pieced together POS Slingerland/Ludwig/Pearl drumset, Yamaha DX21, Dynaudio BM5A monitors, a few mics here and there (Rode, Sure, Sennheiser, AKG, Groove Tubes), a bunch of effects pedals and stupid kids toys
My live setup is constantly changing. The live looping that I do during my shows has been the main reason for trying new setups up… Mostly I’m just trying to push the limits of the gear, but sometimes I just that I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing and end up with a setup that needs to be tweaked. So the stuff that I’m using now consists of two Gibson EchoPlex Digital Pro’s, my Fender Toronado, Line 6 DL4, Line 6 Echo Park, Line 6 AM4, Voodoo Labs Pedal Power, some cheapo Tapco mixer, Yamaha PSS140, and a Behringer FCB1010. Two of the buttons on the Behringer decided to crap out on me so it may be on the way out. Sometimes I use a Line 6 Variax Acoustic 700 but not really much anymore.
Lately I really have been trying to simplify and get rid of some gear, it’s nice to make things a bit more lean and push the limits of the few pedals that I have.
