ABOUT

Am looking for a good rock band to start or join. And I would like to ask you to post some of your audio on your profile page. It really helps to know that you are not going into a potential relationship blind as a bat. As with most musicians, my practice schedule consists of basically prog rock and the more difficult types of music so I can stay in shape. What I am really looking for are players that can play cover tunes like 2112 and Natural Science, and some of those epic older Rush tunes, and music of the like. I know a lot of you are not keen on the idea of migrating to the drummers house, but this is the literal truth in this case. Huge Rush fan, so I've kind of modeled my kit after Neil Peart, sort of. I am not a studio drummer, per say, but I do a lot of recording, so my tracking skills are up to snuff. Here's a link to an old video (1992) of Warpigs at a backyard party: s://.thegearpage/board/index.php?threads/i-found-a-25-year-old-backyard-party-video-of-warpigs.1767103/
Please drop me a line if you're interested! Thank you!
P.S. I'm not a paying member, so please leave contact info. AND DON'T FORGET TO PUT SOME AUDIO IN YOUR PROFILE! THANK YOU!

I record through (1) Focusrite Clarett Octopre and (2) Focusrite Clarett 8PreX interfaces with 24 channels into pro tools 11. I use a total of 15 mics on my kit, plus spares. It's all mounted to a nice Gibraltar circular rack (see photos). My effects rack includes: (1) Alesis 2ch compressor, (1) Lexicon MX300, (1) DBX EQ, (1) 8ch powered DI, (1) feedback destroyer, (1) INuke 3000W amp, (1) 8ch Art headphone amp
