Working hard today on a long list of test masters and singles! Trying to get caught up by tomorrow, so thanks to everyone who is waiting on me! 😎🙏🏼 Ok, gear talk: who else likes T-racks?! Literally my first mastering plugins was the original Tracks 1 suite that I got over 15 years ago 😱 I don’t love everything they make but a few of their newest analog models really “work” for me. Ironically I don’t used them for much compression, maybe 1dB of GR, but I find they have among the best virtual “box tone” of any plugins. Each of them has a sound, an eq, a saturation and harmonic curve and a different “depth profile” that can really add something magical to a track and add dimension like few plugins can. Don’t be thrown by the T-Rex logo, there is some serious analog modeling mojo in these little plugs!! Two of my favorites for the mix buss are the NEVE Comp and their La-2a! Again, very little GR.. I just toggle on for box tone and see if it’s a match. 😎✌🏼 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #mastering #analog #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #hifi #audiophile #gyraf #tkaudio #buzzaudio #avantone #abbey #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing

Here’s the new high-voltage, studio-grade guitar tone machine I designed for @pettyjohnelec!! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ The ROUS is a “Rodent Of Unusual Size” and more or less a highly evolved RAT with a strong reference to one of my favorite movies from my childhood and teenage years! Spreading joy, nestolgia and good tone with this one!😎✌🏼Pre-orders open on Friday, shipping in June!🧀🐀🤣🔥 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #gear #geartalk #geartalkpnw #knowyourtone #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing

Well he’s done it again! @pettyjohnelec @etherealmastering has made his version of the RAT only it’s gonna be bit more than that I bet! It’s called the ROUS (a rat of unusual size) I love the classy look of this pedal, I can’t wait to have one. GET EXCITED EVERYONE! Posted @withregram@pettyjohnelec Say hello to the next CORE pedal, the ROUS!! 😎🙌🏼 We set out to make a distortion+ overdrive that shared circuit and sonic heritage with the classic RAT pedal but after years of tweaking the circuit, it has evolved into something beyond, A Rodent of Unusual Size! 😆🤘🏼🐀 The ROUS features our CORE dual-rail power supply that delivers 18-34v of power to a selection of carefully curated opamps and unique clipping circuit. We use only top shelf analog components and our new active wide range filters for un-paralleled tone shaping power. The ROUS has a gain range that is similar to the original but it is a new sonic creation with great feel and musicality, all packed into a tidy @gorvadesign C65 box. Stay tuned for more details! The ROUS will be available for preorder this Friday and we plan to start shipping in July! 😎🙌🏼🐀🔥 #rous #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #Tone #gottone #becausetone #guitartone #guitar #guitars #electricguitar #electricguitars #pedalboard #pedalboards #pedals #guitarpedals #guitarpedal #gearybusey #cleantone #npd #ngd #gear #geartalk #geartalkpnw #knowyourtone

This is the only baritone guitar I’ve ever made. I made it 5-6 years ago under an old business name I used to use when I was getting started. @andnowthearistocrats (the new owner) found me online and let me know that he had found this for a ridiculous steal at a Portland music shop and fell in love with it. This is also the only guitar I’ve made that’s been stolen (at least to my knowledge) Thankfully he got it back! The world is a small place sometimes. Really cool to hear the history of the instrument and to know it’s in good hands! 🙌🏼

I love this new studio and everyday the mastering room comes together more! 🥰 I’m stoked to be finally setting up my electronics R&D desk. Lots of gear right now in my head to design, a few projects to finish and repairs are always a thing! You know what I’ll be doing while I’m waiting on masters to print!🤓🤘🏼🔥 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #mastering #analog #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #hifi #audiophile #gyraf #tkaudio #buzzaudio #avantone #abbey #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing

I recently finished my first amp build! Fun project, love how it sounds too 😎 big thanks to @pettyjohnelec I used one of his Predrives as the preamp stage before the power amp 🙌🏼

Paduk Bass I just finished with a 5 piece neck. Same customer ordered an identical 5 string so that’s next! I haven’t been using this account for a while but have decided to get back to using it for my guitar stuff. I have several pages so it’s all a bit to manage but having a place for just my guitar builds is ideal. If you’d like to follow my other builds you can follow @nexusguitarpickups & @goldmanwoodco

PBass pickup I did on a recent build. The same customer ordered an identical 5 string so I’m going to have to figure out how I want to design the pickup.

I often think who am I? 🤔 Am I an audio engineer, a mastering engineer, an electrical engineer? Yes... lately I’ve been thinking maybe the best way to describe myself is a “tone engineer”😆 I’m obsessed with tone... the frequencies that make up what we feel and hear in a musical experience. While I’m bouncing masters through analog gear I’m often working on analog circuits for @pettyjohnelec, which are pedals designed to meet or exceed studio performance specs. I’m getting excited to dive into some studio rack gear designs once this next pedal is ready for production and keep chasing the gear designs that make the sounds in my head!🤓🙌🏼🔥 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing #mastering #analog #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #hifi #audiophile #gyraf #tkaudio #buzzaudio #avantone #abbey

I just finished building my very first guitar amp and absolutely love it. Will be posting a demo at some point so you can hear it. It’s an analog solid state dual preamp clean tone machine! I took a @pettyjohnelec “Predrive” and a small practice amp that I had lying around and wired the two of them together and upgraded to a @jensenloudspeakers I made the cabinet out of solid spruce and wrapped with scorched ash. My goal was to create an amp that was really inspiring to play at lower practice volumes but still loud enough to mic up for a small gig if need be. Very pleased with the results! If you like this project and may be interested in having a custom amp cabinet made for your favorite guitar amp I’d love to chat with you about it and make it happen! 😎👍🏼

Here’s a few snaps from the Oregon Casacades yesterday. About 2-3 times a month I make the 125 mile pilgrimage to my @pettyjohnelec shop in Sisters. It’s a stunning drive and I get a lot of therapeutic value out of the two and a half hours each way. Yesterday I listened to (new to me) two albums, front to back that I throughly enjoyed and I thought I’d share them. First was the most recent record by @lanadelrey, Norman Fucking Rockwell, (sorry if the f word offends, it’s the title 😉✌🏼). Honestly, Lana is about as explicit of music that I ever listen to but her depth of poetry, melody and creative expression really inspires me when I’m in the right headspace for it. This was my first time listening to the record and it’s an incredible work, though not for the faint of heart (explicit warning on every track) Second up was an older record that I never took the time to digest, @elbowofficial Live at Jodrell Banks. Whew, what an incredible performance and collection of songs. Back to back A+ records and epic mountain scenery plus 7 hours working on circuits made for a great Monday!! Today, I have 10 tracks waiting for me to master so let’s go!⚡️😎✌🏼 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #mountains #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing #mastering #analog #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #hifi #audiophile #gyraf #tkaudio #buzzaudio #avantone #abbey

This has been my most popular humbucking pickup set so far. I call them “Chimebuckers” aka chimey humbuckers. They have true single coil tone when split and retain tons of clarity and output in full humbucking mode without getting muddy or distorted. This is my favorite humbucking pickup to put in the neck position especially!

You know, when one of your favorite organic energy tea company comes out with a baller new flavor, you take a picture and throw it up on the gram. 🤗 Honestly, my mastering studio is powered by Yerba matte and beef jerky, with an occasional almond. 😂✌🏼 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #mastering #analog #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #hifi #audiophile #gyraf #tkaudio #buzzaudio #avantone #abbey #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing #yerbmatte

If you’ve ever wondered how the frets on your guitar are installed here’s a quick video for you! This is my first time using this evo gold fretwire and with the brass inlay it looks stunning! The 5 string bass is going to be getting frets soon as well!

Watching @joshuaheathscott SHRED with a Gold MKII and a HUGE pick was the highlight of my day, no contest! Also, love those mini humbuckers on the @paulgilbert_official guitar!😎🤘🏼The show “What’s in Josh’s box” features the GOLD MKII from about minute 25 to 34, so go check it out!

I’ve had a good deal of hip hop these last few weeks and this is one of my new go to curves for making it pop in the mids! Light cut at 430, small boost at 2.1k and 6.3k. Makes vocals pop and loops sound forward and bigger then life. I’m also doing a little sweetening on the outside edges, 48Hz boost and 22k boost... all bells on this beautiful sounding Tube eq from @gyrafaudio 🤓👌🏼 #analog #studiograde #highvoltage #toolsfortone #studio #recording #recordingstudio #produce #producer #musicproducer #protools #mix #mixing #mastering #analog #masteringstudio #masteringengineer #hifi #audiophile #gyraf #tkaudio #buzzaudio #avantone #abbey

I have good news! So keep reading 👍🏼 1: This silver Gypsy is nearing closer to being ready for clear coat and then assembly. 2: The company I order fret wire from is back in action so I can get back onto my two customer builds. One, a 5 string bass. The other a dual humbucker hollowbody with a bigsby for @bridgecityfilms 3: Within a month, maybe two, I will have a guitar for sale at Bullfrog Music in Corvallis, OR. I’ve always wanted to get my guitars into instrument stores and it’s finally happening so I’m very excited to see and hear how that goes. And lastly 4: I’m starting a pickup making company and plan to launch soon! Custom, fully hand wound guitar pickups and loaded pickguards. @nexusguitarpickups

I hope you’re all doing well! I wanted to take a quick sec to share a thought I just had. Many of you, like myself are out of work or your business has been suffering due to everything going on this year. I wanted to challenge you to use this time to learn a new skill or to better yourself in some way. For me I’m almost done with my first ever amplifier build and I’m also working with an entirely new array of paint. Both of which I messed up on several times but in the end I will conquer it! So that’s my inspiration for you today. Statistically speaking, the majority of successful people aren’t the smartest, strongest, best at what they do. They’re determined, and NEVER quit trying. Have a good day, and go learn something new today ✌🏼
