I have been a gearhead ever since I started playing. That was because I was always in search of the "perfect tone". Over the years I've owned a lot of equipment while trying to find that right sound. If money and the health of my back were no object, I would have multiple rigs so I could easily get the tones I am looking for. But since money is an object and I don't want to be my chiropractor's best customer, I have to limit my gear to something that is more easily transported. But my pedalboard still weighs around 60 pounds. I have to thank the other guys in the band for helping me carry it.
Over the years I would hear these incredible guitar tones and I would find out what the players were using to get that tone. Whatever it was would usually be incredibly expensive so I would have to find a more affordable substitute. I think I've owned gear from just about every manufacturer out there including Fractal Audio, Kemper, Mesa-Boogie, ADA, Marshall, Line 6, Carvin, Fender, Gibson, Jackson, Charvel, Schon, Music Man, OLP, Takamine, Seymour Duncan, Peavey, Crate, EMG, Yamaha, Korg, Alesis, TC Electronic, Voodoo Lab, Pedaltrain, Digitech, Roland/Boss, Rockman, Rolls, Dunlop, Rocktron, Behringer, Focusrite, M-Audio, and probably a few I have forgotten about.
