AVT 150 Valvestate 2000. I've had it since 2004-ish I think. It's kind of a jack of all trades but master of none. Like a lot of Masrhalls the mid has to be set at 0 or else it just sounds too mushy but other than that I like it for home use

I've mentioned in another thread how my long term gf has had a sad family life being dis-fellowshipped from the Jehovah's witnesses, and has not been allowed to speak to her father and a lot of her family for a good 20 years now.

As F'd up as that all is, the family makes really great Ukuleles in Hawaii. Her brother who also left the religion, but wasn't dis-fellowshipped has a big role in the company. He's sent us a couple very nice solid mahogany tenor ukes.




Growing up playing guitar, it was a pretty easy transition to pick up and they are a whole lot of fun to play.

Also interesting, is their family makes ukuleles Bruno Mars plays:

Currently playing a 2012 Gretsch Catalina Maple Ebony fade with an 8, 10, 12, 16, 22 inch shell pack and 14 inch snare. All sorts of cool cymbals including a custom Turkish flat ride and 15 inch zildjian hats. Like using 7A plastic and wooden tips at the same time using the plastic with my left and wood with my right. Have always been a single kick guy that attacks the bass drum much like John Bonham and I have the right calf to prove it hahaha!

Currently we are recording using a personus 32 track through Mac Logic! Really excited to get the fullest drums yet on the next album we are planning to record and would like to say feel free to check out our current available music all for free download at our band camp link in my signature!

Some cherry gear in here so far keep them coming all! Dig seeing how many musicians are on CP it’s awesome!

On 2nd look that is definitely not the TD-1 DMK Troutman - let me know the model!

I really love that headstock. Very few guitars can pull off or attempt a natural look up there. Plus the shape of it, just perfect.

I've come around on the body art and like it now, but I'm a huge simplistic design guy, so if I'm liking a busy design you know you've nailed it!

Joining in the "what do you have" list. I'm in a (very) part time bar bad. Keyboards and, when the occasion calls for it, trumpet/melodica/harmonica/backup vocals.

My keys are a Casio synth and a bigger Yamaha electric piano, which I don't lug to that many gigs. My horns are a Yamaha trumpet and I just got a little pocket trumpet for fun. I also have an acoustic piano, an electronic drum set, and we have a couple random guitars and a Fender bass sitting around.

Ok, I just had a look. I’m not a tech person at all but let me know if this is the info you wanted. Guitar OR upgraded all the hardware that came with the kit:

Seymour Duncan, 59 Model Hum-bucker pickup
Seymour Duncan, 59/Custom Hybrid bridge hum-bucker
Grover - machine heads - tuners

Drums - Roland - sound module TD-11.

The 59's are a fine choice. Glad to see you upgraded the kit hardware, I tend to think about 60% of a guitars tone comes from the pickups and cheap tuners create tuning nightmares.

So I ordered my steel tonguepan shortly after orginal post.
A Yudin Workshop (YW) Pulsar
Scale: customized extended D Kurd 11 notes (D minor)

The master instrument maker custom makes these (in Siberia, Russia of all places!). 6 weeks after originally contacting him, it is now complete - he sent the following confirmation video - it is now shipping:

Wow... That is an impressive set. I dabbled in the drums for a short period in HS for a couple "bands" with friends. Would have loved to fool around on something like this. Any videos of you playing them?
