Every time my band goes on tour we joke about going to Guitar Centers and how excited we are to make so many new friends, because as soon as we walk in the door they see a touring band and it's all, "hey dude!" "what's up man!" "how's going today guys!" from every single sales guy. All we need is st...

I heard about some place the other day called Fast Tracks or maybe Fast Trax. Sounded like a pretty amazing deal the band got. Also might be worth checking out Iso Media and Real Time. All are in the Seattle area.

Just got a Soundelux U195 and a 70's AKG C-451E on the super cheap. I hadn't bought any new gear in a while, it felt super good. I can't wait to try out the u195 on outside of kick in fat mode.

I almost forgot, if anyone in the band is vegetarian/vegan or just likes to get healthier food and good produce (which can be especially difficult in the midwest and south) there's a book called "Healthy Highways" that lists every health food store (including Whole Foods and Wild Oats) as well as ev...

Ooh, tour games! Here's my favorite, but remember, you have to keep a straight face... Go to an intersection in whatever city you're in that night, such Deerborn and 4th. Ask anyone walking by where Deerborn and 4th is. Let them know you're from out of town and having trouble finding the club you're...

Two pieces of wheat bread Peanut Butter Banana Acocado Raw ginger Raw garlic I live off of variations of this sandwich for weeks on the road. It's super filling and I can live off about $5.00 a day (makes two sandwiches). Kee...

I think Ed and all the guys at RFI do an amazing job. That being said, they're also the most expensive game in town. They're still cheap compared to NY and LA prices, but pretty damn expensive. I've always been a little put off by having to pay $75 for the "master" when it's just a CD-R. Paying a hi...

Sorry it took a few days to respond, work's been busy. "Into the Blue Again" was mostly tracked at Bear Creek with Ryan producing. Unfortunately for me I wasn't in on that session. My friends Brandon and Lucas were the engineers for those sessions.

Check out http://www.bearcreekstudio.com . I'm a house engineer there and the pictures don't even come close to doing the place justice. Been around since the late 1970's. Two large, gorgeous sounding rooms (plus a few iso booths) and lots of classic gear (1176's, LA2, LA3, u47, u67's and 87's, Neve...

Roberts tube r-t-r (x2), CBS Volumax 400, Urei 565T

I have some gear for sale, but it's not in tip top shape. Roberts 1630 all tube reel to reel. I have two of these. One functions perfectly. Could be an amazing 1/4" mixdown deck and I'll throw in a reel of quantegy 456. The other one has a frozen hub. It would be great for modifying into preamps or ...

back your van against a light pole, garage door, or cement wall. that's what my band does, and maybe it's just dumb luck, but we've never had our gear stolen.

Get the Sennheiser e602, you won't be sorry. Getting kick drum sounds I'm happy with has become so much easier since getting this mic. It sounds "modern" (read: scooped) similar to a D112 and Beta 52, but has it's own thing going on. Nice extended low end with a crisp/clear top. The Beta 52 never ga...

Like I said, I've heard stories of these things. From pretty reliable sources and from friends, but still second hand. I wasn't trying to start anything. I'm really just curious about whether it's true, and if it is true, where his sense of discipline/professionalism for himself and the artist stems...
