James Trussart Guitars
website I play a James Trussart Steele Paul (2002), I have used it primarily in P-Funk, live and studio work between 2002 and 2009.
This is a great sounding guitar that looks great on the stage.
XOX Audio Tools
website I began playing my custom Handle in 2010, and had a second one made after the first one was stolen in August 2011
from our tourbus while parked at a gig in Memphis.
My guitar was found in Atlanta in early 2012, and was returned to me by Det. Keaton
of the Shelby Country Sheriff's Dept. June 3, 2012, so now I have TWIN Handles!!!
AVID Eleven Rack
website The Eleven Rack has totally changed the way approach live performances. The Eleven Rack is a guitar amp modeler/Multi-Effect/Digital IO and mush more.
And the component software which plugs into your ProTools session is an invaluable tool.
The Eleven Rack is the first amp modeler I have ever used live with P-Funk, and it sound like my physical amp, only better. Sometimes when I;m practicing at home, I ooh around for my amp and them remember in the Eleven going straight into the mixing console. !!!!!
website KMI is based in Berkeley and is run by a true
genius, Keith McMillen. I am using the Soft Step midi foot controller to run my Eleven Rack,
the Electrix Repeater, as well as Ableton live and ProTools for hands free tracking in my laboratory.
Watch KMI for many cool GAME CHANGING products. Seriously, don't sleep on KMI!!
Mesa Boogie Amps
website I have used Mesa Boogie Amps almost exclusively since 1989. I started with the 1x12 50 Calibur Combo and never looked back. I use a tremoverb head with a 4 x 12 cabinet for P-Funk, and I use a V-Twin Rack with a 50-50 Stereo Power Amp and a 2x12 Cab for clubs and small stages around town. I also own a few 1x12 wedges.
website I absolutely love my N-Tune, which is built right into my volume knob. Put a litte harmony in your life.
website I used Gibson Les Paul for The Alcohol of Fame, and most everything since 1991 when I first started using the Les Paul model, including DoggAss, and Electrofunkadelica. I have two Les Pauls. I used an Acoustic Gibson AJ-45 live for the Eric McFadden Experience, and many recordings and solo shows. I have a 1953 175 which was used on the Eric McFadden Experience's Nothing Song
website My first strat style guitar was a Kramer Pacer, but I got an American Standard Strat in 1990 that I used primarily in 4 Non Blondes, and also recordings. I also have two Fender Telecasters, a late sixties used during Storm , Inc. live shows and recordings ( The Calm Years), and a Japanese 80's Pink Paisley that I am currently using live with P-Funk (2009)
Daisy Rock Guitars
website Bruce Zinky is a true genius madman and his amps are smokin'!!
JIm Dunlop MXR
website My pedal board is 80% Dunlop / MXR stuff. I use the 535 and / or the Dime Bag wha wha, the phase 90, the doubleshot distortion, the auto wha, the amazing Carbon Copy delay and the line boost. That's what's on my pedalboard every night. They also make / made the Hot Licks Copper Picks I use exclusively
D R Strings
website I have been using D R Strings since 1990. I don't know what it is about these strings, but I love them. And now they come in colors!!
website Pedalboard and road case. Where would I be without my pedal train?
ProTools Software and Hardware. I used the M-Box in conjunction with an Audio Media III card, and a Mix / 882 system to record many demos , comercial projects, as well as the Electrofunkadelica CD. The modular flexibilty of this system revolutionized the way we make recordings. Possibilities are endless
Propellerheadz Reason and Rebirth
website Sofware modeling drum machines, synths and all sorts of other cool stuff. I used these programs to make tracks for E-Funk and more.
Electrix Repeater and Warp Factory
there is no longer a website for this company
The Electrix Warp Factory and Repeater are essentian parts of a live Electrofunkadelica / BB Kink Show, and have proved invaluable production tools over the years. Loopers had nowhere near this capability prior to this product. Thank god for Ableton Live, although the foot controller is a bit massive...
Tone Tubby , A Brown Soun, Inc.
website Speakers made from hemp. These speakers are the BEST sounding speakers I have ever heard. Period. Another Bay Area Original!!
