Recommended Gear

Not only have I spent most of my life in music shops, playing in bands, and spending time with musicians, I’ve spent plenty sleepless nights researching and testing (at least the ones I can play) the best musical instruments and gear on the market.

Please keep in mind that these items are not all necessarily at the upper end of the musical instrument scale, no pun intended… or maybe it was 😉 but my goal with this page is to recommend gear that I believe is worth the money.

I don’t believe buying the most expensive guitar will make you sound like Jimi Hendrix, and neither should you…

This is the stuff I use, my friend circle of musicians uses, and gear I believe you will be happy with in the long-term.
