Kyle RalstonFender Amps – Tone Master Twin Reverb
The Fender Tone Master Twin delivers the tone and vibe a vintage Twin gives you at half the weight!! (33 lbs vs. 65lbs) Usable features include a variable attenuator that allows you to switch from 1w to 85watts and three more settings in between with a balanced line out with level control. It has a great tube-esque sounding tone with no tubes translating into no maintenance! It also keeps the traditional features such as the unmatched reverb and tremolo desired by Fender players with a couple of modern Jensen N-12K speakers all encased in a pine cabinet.

It’s great price point, volume versatility, great tone, light weight, and low maintenance makes this a very desirable amplifier for any type of player or venue.

Brian Soden – Tom Anderson Electric Guitars – T Classic Shorty Hollow – Tobacco Burst
This is a guitar I could absolutely play an entire gig with. Super comfortable with the smooth contours, incredibly lightweight and a killer array of tones available on the 5-way switch. Anderson never ceases to impress me. Ugh! I love this guitar!

Mike Horan – Taylor Acoustic Guitars – 517e Grand Pacific Builder’s Edition V-Class – Wild Honey Burst
Reminiscent of a slope-shouldered J-45, this guitar has many of the same tonal qualities that attract me to that model: namely, a very even response when strummed that make it an ideal guitar to accompany vocalists.

Trey Durkin – Fender Electric Guitars – Player Stratocaster – Polar White
The Stratocaster has long been my favorite electric guitar. My main guitar is a Strat, and I have always thought these guitars are incredibly versatile and very comfortable to play. This all white strat with a maple fingerboard is both classic and classy, and reminds me of some of my all time favorite players like Jimi Hendrix, Yngwie Malmsteen, and Curtis Mayfield. When I plugged this guitar in, I was immediately reminded of my favorite old recordings because the pickups deliver all the classic strat tone that should be expected from such an iconic guitar.

Matt KappenmanCollings Acoustic Guitars – OM1 A Traditional T Series – Sinker Mahogany
This guitar haunts me. In a good way, of course. This is one of those guitars that makes you reconsider all of your guitar choices over the years. It has the volume and projection of a bigger guitar, with the articulation and ease of a smaller one. The evolution of the Traditional Series, combined with this old-growth, sinker-mahogany back and sides, just sounds lovely.
