1997 Vox AC30/6TBX
This is probably one of the best amps I’ve played. Its the Korg Era AC30 with the Alnico Blues in it. It takes all of my pedals like it’s nothing, and is consistent with any guitar I throw at it. I run it through the Hi-Gain Brilliant channel.
60th Anniversary Fender American Telecaster:
This is ‘Blondie’. My go-to, ole-faithful, tried and true, etc etc that I’ll never get rid of. It’s starting to get beat up and worn in from it’s consistent use. I’ve put an Emerson Custom Tele assembly in it, as well as some Riggio Custom Guitars ‘Blackguard’ pickups. Very warm, and punchy while still retaining the classic Tele twang. This thing sounds incredible with anything, I swear.
2014 Gretsch Double-Cutaway White Falcon:
Absolutely in love with this guitar. Everyone has the normal Falcon, so I figured Id be different and get the double cutaway. It has a very dark, round tone. Really unique sounding. Don’t see myself getting rid of this guy anytime soon.
This is what I’m using at the moment. Everything is constantly changing in and out, but I think I’ve found what I like, and I’m sticking to it! (Don’t hold me to that…)
It’s all wired up onto a Brady Cases 28X18 Flatboard.
Boss TU-3: It tunes.
JHS DynaRoss: Really open sounding, and doesn’t squash your tone much at all, just adds some sustain. Its left on all the time.
EHX Micro POG: One of my favorite pedals on my board. I probably overuse it, but who doesn’t? I use it for mostly the octave-up setting for solos or little filler-bits. (Is that even a word?)
Ibanez Ts9: This is one of the first pedals I ever used, and I’ve loved it ever since. It’s an older model, and it has a cool history.
JHS Superbolt: JHS hit it out of the park with this one. Its a really clean/bright OD that can easily jump into the fuzz territory if you need it to. I keep it on about 95% of the time.
Divided By 13 Joyride: I use this as a solo boost or to add a little more girth to my tone for big parts of songs. The EQ makes it a winner for me, as most boost pedals either add too much Bass or too much Treble to my ears.
Cusack Tap-A-Whirl: Really cool tap tremolo. I keep it mostly on the 1st setting and adjust the depth as I see fit.
Ernie Ball VP Jr: The worship standard. No mods done to it.
Strymon Brigadier: Used for swells, oscillation, vibrato, or to add a tail to the end of a song.
Strymon Timeline: Probably my favorite delay pedal ever. EVER. The magic happens when you run it in stereo. Praises.
Strymon BigSky: Ditched the RV5 and got this bad boy instead. I use it for the Plate, Hall, Room and Bloom setting. Again, the magic happens in stereo. I run stereo out of it into 2 Radial SGI Boxes out to my amps.
Disaster Areas DMC-2: This switches the banks on my Timeline.
It’s all wired up with soldered cables (Mogami 2319, Switchcraft Plugs) and powered by the two PP2+.
