As my first "official" post I thought I would go though the gear I use as well as the rec set up.
I mentioned in my "Intro" about my first guitar and amp; J&D Telecaster and the VOX Pathfinder which I got as a birthday present from my father in 2005.
It's not the greatest guitar but it's special to me since it's because of that guitar that I started to commit myself to music.
I remember the first time I tried to swing it around my neck... well, it's the only time... and it didn't go so well...
The guitar came loose from the strap and flew about 7 feet before landing on a cement floor. (I know, a basement practice room isn't the best place to try guitar stunts...)
Luckily the Telecaster is a sturdy guitar and the only thing that broke was a screw holding the control plate in place.
Believe me, until I buy real strap locks I won't be doing that again.
Thinking of a Marshall or Orange. Any ideas or comments?
I thought about trading it for another guitar half a year ago but found out that it's value had lowered tremendously so I kept it, which I'm glad I did.
This is more of a solo guitar with only EMG 81 humbucker pickups (compared to the MH350 which got an EMG 85, a pickup that works great for rythm sections).
For last I got a VOX wah-wah which I still can't use to well...
Still a beginner but it's more fun to learn as you go, right.
For my recording equipment I use the M-box 2 Mini together with a pair of Supreme CD-90 headphones and for piano/synth-recordings I use the M-Audio Keyrig 49 (which doesn't really belong to me but my brother).
I'm thinking of buying a Shure Sm57 and maybe a condenser mic so I can start recording a little more professional but that will have to wait for now.
Software I've used is Logic Pro, Cubase, Pro Tools and some free programs like MuLab and Audacity etc but Pro Tools is my favorite so far, though I am a little interested in Reaper so maybe I'll try that in the future.
It's not that much but it's enough to get me pretty far, don't you think...
