Playing guitar is my number one passion. I listen to music all day long and some of the guitar players that have made a big impact on me are: Jimmy Page, Slash, SRV, Hendrix, Angus and Malcom, James Hetfield, Randy Rhoads, Tony Iommi, Dimebag and more recently Joe Bonamassa.
When I play with Vinyl Vault, I absolutely love the sound of my Gibson Les Pauls (specially my R9) through a couple of different pedals and ending the chain with a hand wired Marshall combo amp. I get pure classic rock tone with that setup. Some of the pedals I have on my board are; Wah, Compressor, Boost, OCD, Archer, Chorus, Delay, BBE.
