2 New Singles - Out Now
Just in time for backyard parties and Summer fireworks, Andy Schneider has two new singles available. "Tennessee Whiskey" and "10 and 2" are available at online retailers and streaming services on July 1, 2015.
Following his 2014 release of the acoustic "Epic Fail - Woodgrain Edition", Andy's latest singles turn toward electrified country. Country music influenced as much by East Coast production as old-school storytelling. "My favorite music has always been all over the map," Andy reports. "I love old Country and I live and make music in 2015. Merle and Johnny and Buck were always forward-thinking in their music choices. I want to make the Country music of tomorrow, today."
So proud, my uber-talented wife's podcast is skyrocketing. Check out her strange, beautiful writing on iTunes.
My prize. 1979 Marshall 4150, or Club and Country. The only Country amp they ever made. Reverb and built-in tube boost. I run it with only 2 power tubes because 50 watts is enough! My favorite Marshall ever.
Weber 8" ceramic. Got them in both Silvertone 1457s. Nice replacement.
The bees! Vintage bumblebee capacitors taken from a 1950s Weber tape recorder. Fantastic tone caps for any guitar. Adds a "solidity" to the guitar's tone. Unbeatable. Now these go in every guitar I buy. Dano 12-string has one.
1971 Fender Twin with 15" Weber alnico speaker and cabinet. This amp used to be a half of a Quad Reverb. I changed the faceplate, cab and speaker and made a few upgrades to the power section ala SRV. Now, has 4 6V6 tubes, instead of original 6L6s. Like a muscular Deluxe Reverb.
Replacement springs for my Marshall Club and Country's reverb. New tank is above, with original 2-spring below. Upgrade was a big improvement.
1955 Gibson GA-6. Ultimate tweed tone. It's been with me for many years and is on almost every record I've ever recorded.
ScreaminFX 1954 Fuzz. So good. Boutique overdrive that gooses up the amp without getting mushy.
Joyo Pipebomb Compressor. Really juicy compression sound, perfect for Country leads. On my clean line. Tiny, too!
