Your Music Gear Guide

I’m the gear dude! I’ve created, your trusted music gear resource, to share a wealth of knowledge curated through many years of experience working with all types of music gear. If you’re like me, you have done your best to buy the right thing for your application and at times gotten the wrong thing which can be a frustrating experience. My articles are meant to guide you into making an informed and educated choice with your hard-earned dollars.

Knowledge is power in this world I believe. Nearly half of my life has been spent in customer facing MI retail helping people purchase the right equipment for the right reasons. I have watched how the evolving world of music gear has changed the landscape of what people purchase and why directly from the front lines. It’s crazy to think that just 10 years ago we carried giant guitar amplifiers to and from rehearsals and shows and now the technology has changed so that you can carry all of those sounds and 1,000’s more in a backpack from home, to rehearsals, to studios, to the biggest stages in the world and back again. I aim to take everything I have learned in my career and make it available to you in a fun and easy to learn from.
