The Boogie is the nucleus and core for my lead tone. It's appeared on all my records and guest solos. I am using the Fractal Axe FX unit as an effects processor via 4 cable method through the JP2C+. This allows me to place any effect before or after different amp stages. My overdrives come before the pre-amp, whereas my delays, EQ's and reverbs come after. The effects that I use in order are Gate, Overdrive, Multi-Delay and Reverb.

The Carvin HD1500 is used for two reasons. It is used as a backup power amp and other times as a way to power my monitor to hear myself on tour.

For songwriting and pre-production, I use Logic Pro X. This allows me to record ideas on the fly, drag and drop sections in different places and add all sorts of textural elements.

Using 4 cable method, I record any and all lead guitars as follows :

AXE FX > JP2C+ > Scarlett 18i8 via built-in CabClone DI

Rhythm Guitars are approached differently. I like to mic my 4x12 cab with a combination of mics such as the SM57 or Shure KSM 313. I do not mix or master my releases. All lead and bass guitars are tracked in my home studio while rhythm guitar and drums are almost always tracked live in studios with the exception of "The Speed of Dark: Revisited," which was all tracked in my home studio.
