For this recording session, I used my @kemperamps_official profiler with an Aguilar Tone Hammer & Aguilar 8×10 profile along with my trusty @ernieballmusicman Stingray5HH loaded with @jimdunlopusa flatwound strings

FlashbackFriday – During the first days of the 2020 Covid-19 quarantine in SoCal, the members of Identity Theft (the band) kept themselves busy working on a remotely recorded cover version of “Words” by Missing Persons.

FlashbackFriday – During the first days of the 2020 Covid-19 quarantine in SoCal, the members of Identity Theft (the band) kept themselves busy working on a remotely recorded cover version of “Words” by Missing Persons. I used my Kemper Profiler and I created a preset for my Source Audio C4 Synth pedal to recreate the synth bass sound. You can download the preset from the Neuro presets community on https://neuro.sourceaudio.net

It’s crazy to think of how many stories and fond memories you can recall just from the stickers, dents, and scratches you find on your travel cases.

If only these bass guitar cases could talk! I originally just started with my name and a few stickers on each case so that I could recognize my gear when it’s dark backstage and at the airport, and so that crew and other musicians don’t accidentally pack the wrong gear in their trucks (no one can mistake my ugly cases).
Over time, the stickers get ripped off due to use and abuse, so I just add more stickers over the top of the old ones. Besides, it gives me somewhere to put all those cool decals you get when traveling and when you buy new gear.

I’m looking forward to later this year when we can all get back out there and do some road gigs and fly-in gigs so I can collect some more stickers. 😉

I’ve been attending the NAMM show for years.

I’ve been attending the NAMM show for years. It’s such a great opportunity to learn about all the new music tech being released as well as a chance to see so many great friends and peers. Sadly, the NAMM Winter Show won’t be be held in-person this year due to the pandemic. Since today would have been the first day of the event, I figured it would be an appropriate TBT to post a few photos from NAMMs of the past
