Every song starts with a strong drum beat. Paul does that with a Mapex Saturn set with Gibralter rack.
We have lots of amps and have done tons of comparison testing
But my best amps in side by side comparisons are my Carvin Legacy and my BlackLabel Krank/Revolution amp custom wired by Tony Krank.
The best sounding cabs of the nine 4x12 and 4x10's that I have tried are my Carvin Legacy cabs with Eminence governors.
A few basses, for why, we don't really know.
A real Gibson, and a fake Gibson.
Another real Gibson, and a fake one.
We've got a couple of those.
A few of these,
one or two of these;
Maybe one of these,
I think one or two of these
And we have a few Hamer Californians.
I am a huge fan of Greg Howe and the new band, Maragold. Greg made a signature guitar that was perfect in design and pathetic in production. Lots of work and a brand new neck made it into the guitar it should have been. Greg is now with Carvin and we are waiting for the new signature series to be unsheathed at Namm, 2015. Flat out - Carvin makes the best guitars around right now. With lots of options and semi-custom stuff to finishes second to none. Truly artwork that sounds like a sea of angels. I can't wait for the new Greg Howe.
I have always been a fan of Living Colour and Burnin' Vernon. I found this baby on ebay for cheap and hacked and worked it with the vibe and feel of the old Vernon guitars - (With just a little pinch of my own flair)
And we will put up more when we get photos. Now, back to non-guitar related stuff.
We use an Audie Technologies flow bench to see how bad our new tunes suck.
When we need to haul the mail to the Lemmings shows, we use all American power!
And to churn up new ideas, we use the completely custom RH-13 propeller by Wannabe Racing.
