EQUIPMENT

Guitars: Main guitar is currently a Burns Brian May Red Special. The tone is one of my favorites and the versitility is beyond comnpare. I also use two Fender Stratocasters and an Ibanez 7 string.

Amps: My main amp for smaller shows is a Marshall combo, however for the bigger venues I utilize two Peavy 4x12 cabinets fueled by a Marshall JCM 900 and a Fender Bassman.

Effects: The effects chain is quite simple: From the guitar I run into a Morley Volume then into a Dunlop Wah. From there I go to the Digitech Red Special Pedal that is the hub of my sounds. Attached to that is a Digitech FS3X switcher that controlls the 8 presets on the Red Special. From the Red Special I come out split signal, one goes to the sound guy (front of house) and the other feeds to my Boss delay pedal that then feeds to my stage amps.
