The Tools of the Tirade
The Grinding of the Gear
For the most part I dig Tom Anderson, PRS, and EBMM electrics. Martin still makes an excellent flattop
Fractal's Axe-FX II XL+ is awesome but I still dig my amps
Friedman BE-50 Deluxe
Swart Atomic Space Tone Pro
Mesa Boogie Studio Preamp
Vox AC15 HW
My new favorite thing in the world is the Universal Audio OX amp top box
I've got a bunch of them around here but I really like the Microtech Gefell UMT 70s with the famous M7 capsule (It's the original Neumann sound)
I have a ton of pedals and assorted outboard gear but the Axe-Fx has pretty much replaced all that. The VG-99 is still with me for bass and synth duties. I hate distortion pedals but I did pick up one of the Paul Gilbert JHS PG-14 that's fun. And, used with restraint, the Bogner La Grange is fantastic
Korg Kronos Special Edition, Korg Minilogue, Yamaha Motif Rack ES, Spectrasonics Omnisphere, a the Arturia V Collection
I sold my acoustic Mapex kit and have replaced it with a Roland V kit. But I did save all my Meinl cymbals and Pearl hardware, just in case.
The limitations baked into the Roland brain have been rectified with the addition of Superior Drummer 3 -- a brilliant piece of software.
UAD Apollo Quad + Twin Quad
iMac (10 core)
Logic Pro X
Oh, I went a little nuts with the UAD plugins. Let's not get into all that ;-) I like Sound Toys as well.
My two favorite things: the Herman Miller Aeron chair and Sonarworks Sound ID Reference monitor calibration system.
