The First Pedal to Offer Full Stereo Wet | Dry | Wet Using Only Two Amps Introducing the Red Sea, an all analog signal routing matrix, designed for countless stereo and mono signal path routing options. The Red Sea was born out of the vision to provide complex signal routing options available to the live/performing…

Easter is my favorite time of year. I would bet it is for a lot of Christians. There are so many reasons to love this particular weekend, and at the top of the list is, of course, the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. It is also a time when we get to reflect on the sacrifice…

Matchless. It is perhaps one of the most revered names in amps and known worldwide for it’s C30 models. Strangely enough, their most recent offering, the SC Mini, has flown under the radar ever since it was first introduced at Winter NAMM 2015. After scouring the internet for nearly two years looking for information and…

I have always been accused of being over prepared. I carry around a plastic hanging folder box with huge handle that is packed full of spare parts, supplies and tools. I used to get made fun of until one Sunday my volume pedal was squeaking and I had to carry the band with ambient swells…

The basics. These are the foundations of music that many people never get a chance to learn. When I was growing up, I remember our school never had music theory classes. This confused me, because my church always had music programs to teach kids musical instruments and musical theory. Since I was 6 I had…

As someone who is more interested in leadership and community than artistic excellence, team building is something that I get super jacked about. After almost 15 years of being on worship teams, I have noticed that too often team building is overlooked. If it isn't overlooked it is something that is done out of obligation…

Introducing new songs to the congregation is important. Congregations, as well as the individuals within them change. It is the very nature of being human, and our ascribing worth to God will invariably change as well. Hopefully, we will continue to mature and grow spiritually, and our ability to express our devotion will become ever-more…

One of the hardest things for me to do as a worship leader is to find replacements. Part of the reason is because I was never trained by anyone. I cut my teeth leading worship from the moment I decided to learn the venerable G-C-D chord progression. From the very beginning I was the guy.…

Like almost anything else in life, there is not a simple answer to how to start a second campus in a church. There are so many factors that go into launching church campuses that the approaches must be tailored to fit your context. For example, a church of 2,000 people, that is financially stable, and…

When I was a teenager, just starting to play the guitar and leading worship, I was often met with resistance from “traditionalists.” Their arguments against “contemporary” worship was that it was too repetitive, was not substantial, lacked theology, was not sacred enough, and a whole bunch of other claims arguing for modern music’s inferiority to…

I usually lead worship, and though I get a chance to step back from the mic on occasion, it is not often that I get a chance to make changes to any of my pedals between songs. I set the tones I need for the set, and just let it go. Before I got my…

Over the past few months I have became enamored with some of the custom builders who are making Telecaster Deluxe type guitars with eye catching new aesthetics, custom pickups. While these guitars are some of the best money can buy, the problem is that some Worship guitarists aren't in a position to fork over $2500-$5000…
