My guitar gear

I’ve played guitar for over 10 years. I’ve played Stratocasters, Les Pauls, Flying Vs, even 12 string and double-necked guitars, but here’s what I have right now (Jul 2014):

The big news is that I got a Gretsch White Penguin a few weeks ago in immaculate condition. I love this guitar.

I’ve been wanting to have this guitar ever since I saw a Gretsch White Falcon being used in the anime Beck, and the White Penguin combines a smaller body with the amazing gold finish of the Falcon. How does it sound? I did a review here:

Here are my other musical instruments:

Guitars

Fender American Relic Stratocaster (custom)

Fender American Relic Stratocaster
Fender American Relic Stratocaster

I’ve been playing this guitar for about 5 years now. It’s a reliced Fender Stratocaster body with an American standard neck (not a vintage neck), with custom handwound Alnico V/III pickups from Rumpelstiltskin. Great guitar, nitro finish, I’ll probably keep this one forever.

Martin OMJM

The Martin OMJM is my primary acoustic guitar, and being a big fan of John Mayer, I had to have his acoustic sounds. It’s great. Electric Acoustic and with Englemann Spruce top – you can see it in action in many of my youtube recordings.

Amps

Traynor YCV40

Had this one for about 5 years too. All tube, 40 watt amp. I custom installed a Celestion Alnico Blue speaker in it, which makes the tone very very sweet with lots of highs.

Swart Atomic Jr

This is my main amp, it’s a class A 5 watt all tube amp including the rectifiers. It’s got an amazing amount of reverb for such a small thing, and a hot/cool switch to toggle between more highs and more mids. A great small studio amp that I can use for years to come.

Vox Mini5

I like Vox, my first amp ever was a Vox Valvetronic 30 watter, so when I needed a busking amp to go to Korea with, I chose the 5 watt Vox, which is pretty decent for a battery powered amp.

Pedals

My preference in pedals have varied greatly over the years. I’ve had Electro Harmonix, Voxes, Danelectros, Digitechs, Bosses, MXRs, Behringers, Dunlops, Visual Sounds, etc but here are my current pedals:

BBE Two Timer

BBE Two Timer
BBE Two Timer

This is a pretty good analog delay. It has two different delays which are both adjustable, and BBE makes some good quality, good value pedals. I’ll probably keep this as my main delay pedal.

BBE Ben Wah

BBE Ben Wah
BBE Ben Wah

While I’ve played Dunlop Crybabys and Vox Wahs, the BBE Wah is the best value for the money. A great sounding vintage style wah, at about half the price of a vintage Vox or Crybaby wah. Great pedal.

Digitech Hendrix Pedal

Digitech Hendrix Pedal
Digitech Hendrix Pedal

I’ve had this pedal on and off for a long time, since my high school days. Since I grew up idolizing Jimi Hendrix, it makes sense why I had this pedal so early on. It’s been discontinued now, but I still keep it as a pedal that does a pretty darn good job of recreating classic Jimi sounds like the Univibe, Octavia and Fuzz Face.

Maxon TBO9

Maxon TBO9
Maxon TBO9

This pedal is very interesting as I don’t use it strictly as an overdrive. It’s both a booster and an overdrive, powered by a miniature tube, and is best in combination with other overdrives and distortions. I use it mainly to beef up my tone, but by itself it doesn’t get a lot of distortion. But man, what a great tone.

MXR Modified OD

MXR Modified OD
MXR Modified OD

This is my main overdrive, and in combination with the Maxon, pushes the amp to breakup very easily. This overdrive is incredibly versatile, it has a 15db boost on it, and you can choose the 100Hz cutoff to shape the frequencies, which makes the sound totally different. Very versatile pedal.

MXR Custom Comp

MXR Custom Comp
MXR Custom Comp

You know, I’ve gone many years without using a compressor, and now that I have one, I can’t go back. The compressor keeps the same sound you have, but makes it more consistent, you just feel like someone just mastered your guitar sound in a studio. It can also increase or decrease your total playing volume yet keeping the overdrive constant, so I use it to play rock songs at a low volume. Great pedal, should have bought it earlier.

Boss RC3 Looper

Boss RC3 Looper
Boss RC3 Looper

I also had the Boss RC2 Looper pedal, and I kind of preferred the drum beats on that pedal to this one. But the RC3′s advantage is that it has 99 slots for storing your music, and you can hook it up to your computer to transfer .WAV files for looping, which is a great feature. It also records from AUX input.

Hardwire Chromatic Tuner

What can I say? It’s a tuner, it does its job, its a basic requirement for guitarists.

And lastly…

Casio Celviano Digital Piano

This is my piano whenever I need a piano recording, and it does a pretty good job for the price, which was $800 when I bought it.

NEW 2014 gadget update

Ok, so its been over a year since my last gadget update.

Here’s my tech gadgets as of present (Jul 2014):

Computers
Dell Latitude E4200

2008 Dell Latitude E4200
2008 Dell Latitude E4200

I still have it. Great 12″ laptop from 2008. With 3GB RAM, Core 2 Duo processor, 64GB SSD, an external DVD drive, and port replicator, it still works pretty well. Dell’s Latitude line is very reliable.

HP Envy 14 Beats edition

HP Envy Beats
2011 HP Envy Beats

My 3 year old workhorse laptop has been upgraded. I upgraded the RAM to 8GB of Corsair Vengeance and the hard drive to a 240GB Samsung SSD. Now its my de facto desktop, as I only use it with my monitor and speakers now. Still pretty darn fast, even with a 3 year old Sandy Bridge CPU.

Lenovo Thinkpad X240

Lenovo Thinkpad X240
2014 Lenovo Thinkpad X240

What can I say? I used to think Thinkpads were very boring looking, but now I realized how useful they are. This has become my main laptop for doing anything, work or study. At 12″ and 3.4lbs, very portable, with the latest Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, fingerprint reader, smartcard reader, amazing keyboard, LTE capabilities and TWO batteries that last for 14+ hours, this is an amazingly well constructed and reliable laptop. I will probably be using it for years to come, or at least as long as my Dell Latitude (6 years so far).

Fujitsu P1630

Fujitsu P1630
2008 Fujitsu P1630

This ultra light convertible from 2008 still does the job pretty well as my Windows test machine. It’s a 2lb convertible that runs an Intel Core 2 Duo, 64GB SSD, and 2GB RAM. It still handles most tasks pretty well, and is my most portable laptop.

Sony Vaio UX280 007 Edition

Sony Vaio UX280 007
2006 Sony Vaio UX280 007

My smallest computer is not really a laptop but rather a UMPC. It runs an Intel Core Solo processor with 1GB RAM and 32GB SSD, but I use it mainly to play DOS games on the go. I have one of just 500 007-edition ones.

Tablets/Phones

Archos 7

Archos 7
2008 Archos 7

Yes, the same one I reviewed, and as I mentioned – 320GB of storage space, plays movies without a hitch, and recording PS3 gameplay, it still holds up to the tablets of today despite having an outdated TFT resistive touch screen.

Wikipad

Wikipad
2013 Wikipad

Yes, the Wikipad is relatively obsolete now, still running on 2012 hardware. But still, as long as it runs I’ll use it as my go-to android tablet. A micro-HDMI port and microSD slot, along with a detachable controller is great for playing emulator games, which is mainly what I do with this tablet, and if I need to use Android apps.

iPad Air

iPad Air
2013 iPad Air

For a long time I didn’t want an iPad as I thought it was just an oversized iPhone. But now I realized after using it more, that it fits a different need. Large games, a portable music recording station, a video editor, and guitar amplifier are some of the things I use it for. I used it so much that I actually sold my Macbook Retina in favor of the iPad. With a bluetooth keyboard, it becomes almost a laptop replacement. And with LTE, much more useful.

HTC Touch Pro 2

HTC Touch Pro 2
2009 HTC Touch Pro 2

I just wanted a Windows Mobile device for legacy apps, and this was one of the latest and cheapest. The fact that it has an amazing phone keyboard is just icing on the cheap cake.

iPhone 5S

iPhone5S Gold
2013 iPhone5S Gold

Call me an Apple fanboy, but I don’t like big screens. Screens that are too big are easier to scratch, and suck more battery. The iPhone’s 4″ screen is great. Plus the camera is still the best on any smartphone.

Music

Audio Technica A900

Audio Technica A900
Audio Technica A900

These are my go-to headphones for recording, studio monitoring and anything else requiring little to no noise interference. They are excellent closed back headphones, and for the price of $150, very good value for what you get. They are one of the best sounding headphones I’ve owned (and I’ve owned many), so I’ll probably keep these for many years :)

Beyerdynamic DT770

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro

These are great headphones that I use at work. I use it with a Fiio Andes E07K, and man the music really lights up with these headphone amps driving the 250Ohm headphones.

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7B QuietPoint

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7B QuietPoint
Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7B QuietPoint

These are my travel headphones, the ones I use on trains, buses and planes. The sound quality overall is not quite as good as the A900s, but it is noise cancelling and portable, which is why I have them.

Bose Soundlink Mini

Bose SoundLink Mini
Bose SoundLink Mini

Bose really surprised me with these speakers. Great full range sound, great bass, a lot of volume from such a small speaker. Anyways these are my portable speakers, for use with parties and BBQs and the like.

Audyssey Wireless Speakers

Audyssey Wireless Speakers
Audyssey Wireless Speakers

These are my computer speakers, and they are pretty decent at all around performance. I am impressed at the level of bass they offer despite not having any subwoofer. They are bluetooth enabled, so other than my computer, they also double as speakers for my iPhone and tablet as well.

My random (non)sense of humor

I want to clear something up about my sense of humor. When people talk to me normally, I don’t seem like a very funny or interesting type of guy, and I don’t really display much emotion, but actually I have a pretty nonsensical and random sense of humor.

This manifests itself when I deal with my close friends. My sense of humor is in fact the most American thing about me. If you want to get a sense of exactly how my sense of humor works, here are some of the messages I sent to my friends (that I can show publicly), and yes they are completely random and insane (I’ve updated the not-so-random ones with references), and many are engineer related and contain references to such obscure things as Magic cards, DOS games and Canadian TV Shows:

(on second thought, most of these would probably make awesome voicemail/answering machine messages). On another note, Seth McFarlane please hire me as a gag writer!

That is, all the elephants are synchronized to call die(), and a separate thread executes all of them at the same time.
