Let's see, I don't have any pictures of my stuff, but I'll tell you what I have.

Roland XP-50: Keyboard/Synthesizer

'57 Vintage Fender Stratocaster in SeaFoam Green: Best. Electric. Guitar. Ever.

Martin D-15: A classic acoustic guitar, I haven't played this guitar in quite some time, I might tune it back up in a little bit.

Reason: Music software.

Cubase: More music software that I don't use as often.

Tascam US-428: My audio controller.

Don't call me crazy. I make music for a living. I get paid to do it.

If you would like to see closer up images or images of other features on the set please inform me i am more than willing to take more photo's.

Also forgot to mention that the set is custom painted with a gloss red similar to a flat red powder coat.

Here we have just an overall view of the main sticks i use to play. Some are special and only are made to create certain sounds. Feel free to ask questions.

Above is my personal favorite pair. Used in concert for the band "Pillar" about 6 months ago. Signed by all the band members.

The custom Vic Firth SD1 Generals. Big hefty sticks with great sound quality and weight ratio. If ever going to buy sticks, trust Vic Firth!

http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll94/flatfoot57/Picture002.jpg?t=1211516657
Also used in concert by a local punk band. Nothin special about them, just free sticks that were thrown at me from the stage.

My multi-rod wooden sticks made from Simba Products! Great way to create spiffy hi-hat beats.

This is the Fender Strat electric guitar that i hardly use, and if i do use t, it sounds similar to that of a chalkboard!.. harsh but true!

Just a medium Fender Amp used to, of course amplify the sound.

I have a Schecter Omen-6 guitar with a basswood body and a maple/rosewood neck/fingerboard. It was 300 dollars and is a very good instrument. It has a 25.5 inch scale and 2 Schecter humbucker pickups.
Why chosen: It sounded very hard-rock like John Petrucci's guitar. (His signature model uses the same woods)

Features: basic master volume and tone controls. 3-way pickup selector. Tone-pros locking bridge. (I'm planning to get a bill lawrence l-500 pickup in the bridge pickup slot and a seymour duncan in the neck pickup slot.)

No pics. I will try to put up some if I get the chance.
