Play classical, rock, blues, metal, spanish, slide...

On stage usually use Ibanez (7 string RG7321 and Joe Satriani signature models), or a 1989 Charvel Predator with a Dimebucker pickup through a Line 6 HD500 and a DigiTech Whammy, sometimes with a CryBaby. For the songs requiring fire I use a BC Rich Warlock with pyro attachments!

Generally DI'ed straight into the venue backline, or where we need to amplify - generally Marshall heads through Laney 4x10s.
