Wow, this is a momentous occasion. You, the Gear Mortals of planet Earth, have made me a proud papa today. 50,000 metal musicians and engineers are now part of the swirling mass of badass that makes up our YouTube fanbase. This is huge for us, and it’s a testament to all our hard work and all the excellent help we’ve received from all our contributors and assistants over the past 3 years, and we couldn’t have done it without you. So give yourself a pat on the back, and watch as I give myself a pat on mine in celebration of a milestone.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
