There are some GREAT folks out there making or selling fantastic gear and I'm happy to turn people onto these great people!

Guitar Amplifiers

Grammatico Amps (www.grammaticoamps.com)  John Grammatico has been building amps for the elite blues and roots guitar players of Austin, TX for a while now.  His list of clients include Jimmie Vaughan, Gary Clark Jr., Doyle Bramhall II and many more.  You can add my name to that list!  John built me his take on a late 50's Fender Tremolux amp.  It's a custom model he made just for me and I named it "Roebuck" after Pops Staples.  Give John a holler and get your own! 

Vintage Acoustic Guitars

Vintage Licks Guitars (www.vintagelicksguitars.com) Benn at Vintage Licks is very knowledgeable and happy to share his experience with you.  Benn sold me my prized 1935 Kalamazoo KG-11.

New Guitars

Flammang Guitars (www.flammangguitars.com) David Flammang builds incredible instruments! He was kind enough to build for me my dream L-00 and my N-55X.

 

Microphones 

Ear Trumpet Labs (www.eartrumpetlabs.com) Phil builds the best sounding AND coolest looking mics around! These are designed especially for folks that are mic'ing acoustic instruments for live performance. I am using an Edwina model for all my live performances.
