i find myself liking the british rock sound the most currently, i have a marshall jvm that is my work horse in the studio with jj tubes, sounds great. a few gems i found along the way.

i rarely get rid of any gear, i keep it to use it on a record one day even if its for a 5 second sample.

i run a serious pro tools rig, 16 simultaneous inputs, i usually use 12 at a time to record drums with mics ranging from the standards like shure 57 , sennheiser 421, akg 414 too much to list.

website will be up soon for an online buisness card with samples of my playing and production for other artists.
