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.
I’m really looking forward to learning the Kemper profiler this year, and as always, my signature overdrive and boost pedal by J. Rockett Audio, is always patched in.
I was using the Cali 176 Compressor in this video. It was on loan to me and I wish I kept it and bought it.
Hope you enjoyed a look at my first meeting with Marty Schwartz, we all had a lot of fun!
