Indiana based Guitar player, recording engineer, and song writer. I’m a god awful vocalist but when no one else is around, I do it lol
Been playing guitar since age 10, got my 1st 4 track cassette recorder at 14, been building the gear 1 piece at a time since then. 2020 was my 1st FAWM and I really feel I’ve found a home in this community. Excited about 50/90 so far looking forward to some major league collabs!!! Music has always been important in my life, it helps when the brain gets a little crazy, or I’m just caught in feels. I enjoy philosophy, world religion, cartoons, Star Trek, video games, and hand built guitars by Mel McCullough…the man is a WIZARD…please check him out!
I do most of my tracks with DJTJB who is an absolute gangster/production assassin. We’re both into collaborating with vocalists so if anyone is looking for music to sing to we play well with others!
Gear I’m using:
Modded Ibanez jetking—p90s bigsby and killswitch
Mel McCullough custom tele—signature McCullough 90 degree cutaway, p90 and tele neck pickup, bigsby, reverse neck
McCullough custom fretless bass with whammy bar per my request because hip shot has the assembly on sale lol
Modded squier bass vi—upgraded pickups from guitar fetish
Modded Harmony arch top—added a truss rod, a mini “jazzbucker “ and a piezo bridge pickup with a blend knob
—again Mel is the man, custom builds, mods, repairs. I trust my gear to Mel and Mel alone. He did all the silly things listed above for me.
Neat mics worker bee
Sennheiser e421 (bit stoned and sleep deprived but I believe that’s the one)
Rodes pencil condensers
Sennheiser Tom mics whose names are completely lost on me right now…
Akai mpk mini
Studio one 4
Presonus studio live ar16c
2 cheapo harbinger pa speakers as monitors (I know but I’d rather buy cool mics and weird guitars than monitors)
Big muff reissue — I miss my Russian muff:(
Earthquaker rainbow machine
Dream drive—local Indiana company, wonderful OD
RPS arcade machine, bit crusher, and warp drive analog delay (super cool pedals)
And I like cheap FX like my donner tuner, octave, and multi-mod pedal on a ridiculously oversized gator pedal board
Fender blues jr with cannabis Rex speaker
I also use 1 of 2 boss loopers quite a bit but not so much for FAWM/5090.
Pearl drum 5 piece set (my brothers)
Ludwig snare (MINE)
Bells/chimes/and a buncha dumb hand drums that hippies left at my house…
This all feels like an overshare…whooooo 50/90!
