"It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)"


I've refined the equipment I use over many years.

There are some unique and wonderful sounding bits in there. But, for all that, it's just a means to an end.

After honing my craft for more than 20 years, I can (and do) get great results with only my laptop, a great pair of headphones and headphone amp.

The equipment below just makes it quicker and easier!
