KEMPER PROFILER

The Kemper profiler is a game-changer for touring musicians and recording studios. Of course there is no true substitute for a tube amp, but the Kemper does such a good job at capturing the tones it's very hard to tell the difference between how the Kemper sounds and the actual tube amp that its modeling.

MOOG SUBSEQUENT 37

I don't do a whole lot with synths, but I enjoy this one quite a bit. It has a ton of versatile sounds and the layout makes it pretty easy to explore a lot of the tonal options that it has to offer.

MUSIC MAN BFR LIMITED EDITION JOHN PETRUCCI SIGNED MAJESTY CINNABAR RED SPARKLE

This Music Man is an incredibly versatile instrument and the craftsmanship is absolutely insane. The neck is super smooth and easy to play. The shape of the body is very unique, and JP signature guitars are the only model from Ernie Ball to include a piezo as a stock option.

STRYMON ZUMA

EARTHQUAKER DEVICES CLOVEN HOOF

The Strymon Zuma, in my opinion, is the best option available for a pedal board power supply. It's extremely clean and efficient, and it has the same quality as every other product Strymon releases.

EQD's Cloven Hoof is my favorite fuzz in their line of pedals. It has a very dark and aggressive tone, but it also has the ability to be very versatile as well.
