My studio consists of a Tascam 2488neo, 24-channel digital audio
workstation. I use a Behringer Composer as an outboard compressor
and run mics through an ART dual-channel tube pre-amp.
Microphones: Audio Technica AT-4033, an AT-3060 tube mic, a
Neumann KM 184 and occasionally an AT-32a. I use a pair of MXL-603
mics for background stereo guitar work.  Monitors are TR-5 models
made by Event Electronics.

Left to right:

ARCHES F5 - This was built for me by Chris Baird in Feb 2007

GIBSON J-50 - I bought this guitar at a pawn shop in Anchorage, AK
around 1976. It's been my go-to axe since the first day. It was
completely restored in 1996 by Rudy Blazer.

1912 GIBSON A-1 - I bought this on 14 Feb 2005. Great playing
instrument with lovely tone.

GUILD F-65 CE - I don’t think Guild is making these anymore. It's a
thin body, one-piece maple arched back. It served me well when I
was playing solo gigis.

OCTAVE MANDOLIN - built by Remco Busink in the Netherlands.
The Dutch word for this instrument is "cister". It can also be called a
cittern. This one replaced my original Busink cister. It features a
shorter, guitar-like scale.

PRIM TAMBURICA - also built by Remco Busink. It features a hand
carved, one piece body and neck. This is an instrument whose
origin is the Balkans.

I also have an Ashbory bass guitar, a fiddle, a large selection of
harmonicas and tin whistles and a bodhran.
