Started playing in 1972 when my mates band's drummer left, so I bought a kit and stepped up to the mark!
What gear do you use?
I have a Yamaha 8000 kit and record on Cubase SE with a Roland U20 keyboard and a few add on sounds & Fx. I use a Yamaha FX500 Guitar FX unit and a Tascam 644 Midi studio for a mixing desk. I also have a Black Mamba electronic drum kit and record all live stuff with a Sure SM58. Guitars are a Hofner President semi acoustic, a Johnny Briggs Strat copy and a classical acoustic and 6 string jumbo acoustic that are unnamed! I have no mastering facilities.
