I’ve been working on completing a new drawing at least every two days lately. Here are some of the newest ones, more can be found in my portfolio and I’ll be uploading more in the coming weeks. I should have prints available for purchase soon, if anyone is interested.

Updated EP preview. Now with 100% more live bass guitar.

My new bass arrived this week. So, I figured it was time to update my previous EP preview with some live bass and replaced the awfully programmed bass that was in this track previously.

Keeley Effects Releases Wurst Pedal Ever

fa32aae3-ba9c-412b-b400-231d09c8b808

 

Normally I would imagine this to be a joke, but it looks like Keeley is actually building a pretty ridiculous noise machine. The Absolute Wurst. The descriptions off what this thing can do are hilarious, and I want to get my hands on one and probably make my neighbors hate me even more.

Here is what Keeley has to say about it:

“The Absolüte Würst – No matter how much this seems like a joke (and it is), it isn’t!  This pedal is for real.  I thought what a perfect day to release the most “broken sounding” pedal I could.  Not since the DOD Gonkulator has there been such a hideously beautiful sound.  For Experimentalists, Mathematical Atonal Nerds, and Noise-Scape Artists.”



NAMM might be my favorite time of year…

RGIT20FE_NTF_1P_01

 

It’s that time of year again and NAMM has brought all kinds of fun new gear. The Ibanez RGIT20FE above has an Ash Body, Ebony Fretboard, EMG Pickups, and neck through body construction. It’s like Ibanez read my mind and built my ideal recording guitar. Shut up and take my money Ibanez, you win.

Then we have Peavy releasing one of my favorite amps as a 20 watt head that is switchable to 5 and 1 watts. This thing also has a ton of output options with a DI, USB and the ability to turn the speaker off. I assume due to an internal dummy load circuit. These should have a street price of around $499 when they are released in the spring. One of these and a solid 2×12 cab, and you could be set for most gig/jam situations.

 



Testing 1…2…3…

I’ve been working on some new music lately, so here’s a taste of whats to come.
