    Current Setup:
    Basses
    ------------
    EBMM Stingray Classic 4 (2011, rare '56 blue)
    Rickenbacker 4003 (mid-90s, Jetglow)
    '62 Fender Precision Reissue (2002)
    Fender Jazz ('93, "Boner")
    '62 Hofner (bought used mid-90s)
    Acoustic Upright (2009)

    (as you can see, I have a very iconic collection. I'm missing a couple more iconic basses. Can you guess what they are? :))

    Guitars
    ------------
    Fender Stratocaster
    Martin Acoustic

    Misc. Stringed instruments
    ------------
    I also have two banjos (yes, I play banjo) :)

    Amps
    -----------
    Fender TB-1200. An amazing amp that Fender does not make anymore. This amp was discontinued in 2012. Bad marketing and high price kept this one from becoming a classic. This amp can do everything! I can get deep and thumpy, high and poppy, warm and grindy! ;) This amp can literally produce any sound you want with a total of 1200 watts! The only downside is that it weighs about 35 lbs. A bit heavy but well worth it! I just bought a rack case with an arm strap and I transport it that way. Definitely worth its weight in gold! :)

    Cab(s)
    -----------
    fEARful 15/6/1 w/Fender cloth grill. Looks great! But most importantly, it has a killer sound! Very clean with no coloration, and VERY loud! It pairs surprisingly well with the TB-1200. This cab weighs about 60 lbs. It's a bit heavy, but like the TB-1200, it's worth the schlepping around. The sound is phenomenal!

    Strings (my preferred gauge is light)
    -----------
    Flats:
    Pyramid Gold (warmest flats they make)
    TI Jazz Flats (musically unique)
    Sadowsky Black Label (surprisingly well rounded)

    Rounds:
    DR Sunbeams (4 and 5 string sets. These are my fav rounds)
    EB Super Slinky (underrated and overlooked)
    <still testing rounds>
    .
    .

    Effects
    -----------
    Empress Compressor
    Xotic XBlender
    Way Huge Swollen Pickle
    Barker ASSMASTER
    Melekko EKKO 616
    Iron Ether Nimbus

    Recording
    -----------
    FL Studio 11
    M-Audio 610 (audio interface)
    Sterling ST77 with pop filter and shockmount
    Propellerhead Reason
    Various VST plugins

    Misc.
    -----------
    Headstock vibration-based tuners (I love these things! My favorite is Intellitouch PT10 mini)
    String Dampener (great for slapping and tapping)
    Wrist band to reduce the sweat from ruining my basses :)
