Pretty Reverend Machine

First off I would like to thank Ken, Tim, Zak and the whole Reverend Guitars family. They have been taking care of my crew since 2017. Such an amazing company!

I ran out of space! I’m Sick of the buzz!  I have been using the same trusty pedalboard for over a decade. It served its purpose but it was time to do it right. No more Onespots and daisychains.

We Sing With our Heroes, 33 Rounds Per Minute

What could make a Plaza Midwood bottle shop even cooler? A vinyl Record store, that’s what! Years ago when I found out Tip Top Market was adding Premium Sound to their space I was super stoked. I mean, my favorite bar (Hattie’s Tap & Tavern), Tip Top Market and Premium Sound, all in a row?!?! Yes! At the time I lived literally right behind the building. This was convenient and addicting at the same time. …
