Ah HA! Liam has used a tube amp! Good, I was worried they were junk.

Drums were my first instrument, so I'm allowed to poke fun!

I was in DCI in highschool and my first year of college. I was known as a "Bi Sectional" because I was on the line during marching season, and playing sax during concert. (Queue smart comments)

Also looking at putting FL studios on a laptop & getting a small korg midi keyboard to record my partner's musical ideas. We haven't bought anything yet because it didn't make sense to do it before training.

I use FL, and you can find some really good and durable midi controllers for a good price. Or, you can learn to use your computer keyboard. I fabricated a layover, so you can see all the necessary "note keys" and other relevant buttons. Finding a good mic will be more important, for good recording.

I use fl to make a lot of Transitional "beats", for when I want to switch keys between the tracks I mix.

Stay safe

Native instruments make some solid software.

Also, i prefer the sound of a good tube amp over the newer amps. They give a much fuller sound, to me at least.

A layover is pretty slick. I'll definitely check out Native Instruments.

I've got a Trinity College Short Scale Octave Mandolin and a 1919 Fairbanks Tenor Banjo. Usually the banjo is tuned Irish but currently it has Ukulele tunning from a recent gig with Uke Orchestra. For training I'll leave both at home, although I'll may pack a Clarke Tin Whistle. Once I'm in my own rig I'll alternate between them.

As some of you know, I am a luthier by trade, so this thread is right up my alley. However, due to wood dust related health problems I am transitioning into trucking. I'll be driving for Roehl on their 7/4 - 7/3 program. I will still be building on my off days.

At any given time I have 20 to 30 guitars in various stages of completion. Here are just a couple pics of a recent build, and a stack of upcoming builds that are being sanded by a friend. After I settle in with Roehl, I plan on making a traveler guitar to take on the road along with a little amp.

I have a kala ukulele on the truck for playing on my free time and a blues harp for while I drive. I've been thinking about a bass uke for the last year and will most likely break down and get it next time I'm home.

Very cool. Looks like you're paying homage to PRS with the headstock. smile.gif

Paul Reed Smith visited our music store in the 80s before he got "really" famous.

Besides buying old, VHT makes a very solid tube amp for new. It's hand wired, but since built in China, can be had for a very good price.

Although I believe the original intent of the thread was to describe musical gear you'd take with you in the truck, and I'm not sure I'd wanna take along a guitar amp. I'd rather just use a plug-in with my laptop. The space inside the cab of a truck is pretty limited. You'll wanna maximize your living area.
