Spring's Sonic Shenanigans
Howdy Sonic Adventurers! Thought it was time for a quick update from Studio Brewdio land.
Firstly NAMM was insane. So intense but with some great gear and players on show. Looking forward to going back next year. Thanks for the Vigier peeps for having me and for having my ugly mug on a poster! My two custom Vigier's are still in production, Patrice Vigier doesn't rush his builds and all the better for it and with a bit of luck they should be ready by June.
Keeping on the gear front I'm happy to say I am now an Origin Effects endorsee! I absolutely love their compressors and their newly released Revival drive look like the Swiss army knife of overdriven guitar tones. Cant wait to get my hands on one. Watch this space for reviews and video demo's over the next few weeks.
I've also had a big pedalboard change, swapping to a Temple pedalboard (love the modular design) and added some more Fuzzrocious goodness (Blast Furnace and my custom Feed Me/Grey Stache mashup) and my all time favourite envelope filter, an Emma Discumbobulator v2.
Playing wise its full steam ahead for Keepers Brew duo shows with me neck deep in rehearsals along with plenty of Paramore (Or Less) shows. Also recording of the new Dlugokecki album is nearing completion with live dates imminent. Finally even more session and dep work starting with some funky Mowtown goodness from the Mo Woods Band next week.
My teaching schedule is rammed. My student rock bands bossed it at this terms gigs, I'm really going to miss them when the head off to ACM. Their next gig is Rock The Rooms at the Wedgewood Rooms in June.
I have a couple of Studio Brewdio t-shirts left so message me if you want one and keep checking back for more musical mischief!
