Session Guitarist Tim Pierce Home Studio

Session Guitarist Tim Pierce and his Home Studio Setup. I look back on this Home Studio Video and I’m amazed how much time has passed, but I am also grateful for what I’ve been able to do on YouTube in the last year and a half. This was the first day I ever met Marty Schwartz. I had known Brett Papa and Brett convinced Marty to make the drive up here and do a Home Studio Video for YouTube. Marty and Brett were heroes of mine on YouTube and the fact that I made friends with them was sort of a dream come true. They have both helped me a lot. My Home Studio is a ready to go at a moments notice. It’s as simple as starting a car. When someone shows up to record we can easily be working within 5 to 10 minutes. I’m fortunate to have people like Ross Hogarth, Chris Lord-Algae, Glen Ballard, Jack Joseph Puig, Humberto Gatica and many other studio professionals come and record at my Home Studio. A lot of the gear is interchangeable these days. It seems like pedal and amp and guitar makers are all at such a high level at this point, that you can use a new Strat or a custom boutique Strat, a Boss or Strymon effect pedal or an old Bassman or a new Paul Reed Smith amp. All these things sound great whether they be vintage or modern. The Home Studio changes all the time and best thing to do is look at my newest videos to see what is currently on deck.

Studio Guitar Recording with Gibson Les Paul Black Beauty Guitar - Tim Pierce Guitar

Black Beauty Gibson Les Paul Studio Guitar Recording

Studio Guitar Recording with a Les Paul Black Beauty. Here’s a song I did, with a Black Beauty vintage guitar that I got a year ago. The guitar is a Gibson Black Beauty Les Paul from 1969. This guitar sounds amazing but it is been devalued extensively with a kind of sloppy refret and a fixed broken neck. John Shanks owned the guitar and he was selling it. At the time I was working on X factor playing guitar for John (which is a privilege in itself), and because the guitar at these issues I was able to get it at a good price. As usual I used my divided by 13 RSA 23 and my Custom Audio Electronics Boost Pedal, and also as usual I was printing a little delay after the mic-pre through an Eventide Eclipse. I also play bass on the track just because there wasn’t a bass player around at the time. The session is typical of some of the kinds of parts I create when I’m doing sessions for people. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Subscribe to Tim’s newsletter and get access to a private collection of videos and more.
