Music (naw...). My girlfriend Anne (the_rockstar_bassoonist). Women in general. Stuff. Plants. British Comedy. Mellotrons. Vintage keyboards in general.<br /><br />Moody Blues, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Miles Davis, Count Basie, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, Robin Trower, so forth. You get the idea.<br /><br />Efficieny: If it's not efficient it's probably going to piss me off.<br />Practical/realism: If it's not practical it's guaranteed to piss me off.<br /><br />Balance. I've developed this idea that if I see enough crazy things and get influence from all these catergories of things man has created over the years, I'll eventually either acheive an "englightment" in some sort of Eastern sense, or more realistically, be a very well adjusted person that is not so confused by the world anymore. That'd be nice.
Ibanez GAX70 22 fret, cherry red, with shiny new Blues Wound (EXL115) D'Addario strings.
Sunlite basic 20 fret acoustic with shiny new Martin SP+ light gauge strings.
Samick 21 fret 12-string accoustic, Ernie Ball Earthwound strings.
Johnson A style mandolin.
Fender Rhodes 88: Mark I. Serial #41769.
Yamaha PSR-293 61 key keyboard.
"iTron" homemade Mellotron software patch. Very authentic.
Gemeinhardt intermediate level flute w/ gold plated mouthpeice.
Yamaha student model tenor saxophone, with Vandoren JAVA 3 1/2 reeds.
Amplifiers and Effects
Crate FXT-120 2x12" 120W Solid state amp with effects.
Peavey Rage 158 practice amp.
Electro-Harmonix USA Big Muff Pi Reissue.
Alesis 8-track Multimix-8-USB mixer.
2 Dynamic microphones, cheap.
Audacity 2.2.2. for recording and editing.
Saving up for: $5000 (approx) Muramatsu GX professional flute. That's pure silver head joint, pure silver body, nickel-silver keys, offset G, split E, B foot. No C# trill key. I may or may not go with the extra heavy wall, if I do it's an extra $400.
