“As far as guitars, I use a Jackson SL7 Pro Series Soloist with a Floyd Rose and Seymour Duncan SH-6 7 pickups, as well as a Schecter JL-7 Jeff Loomis Signature with a Floyd Rose and EMG pickups.
On stage I go direct-in with a Fractal Audio Axe-FX II XL+ and use a Matrix GT1000FX-2U power amplifier for a more familiar setup through a cabinet speaker. I use my Axe-FX for all home recordings and hook up my rig to a 4×12 Marshall 1960 Classic with Greenback speakers for rehearsals and jamming.
I feel very honored and excited to be joining Arkaik as a full time member. The band has a rich history of wickedly talented musicians that I have deep respect for, and having the opportunity to take part in this next chapter of the band with a fresh lineup of insane musicians who also happen to be incredible, genuine people brings me great joy. Each release has been unique from it’s predecessor, yet Arkaik totally has a signature sound. It’s very technical but in a brutal, pummeling way. It’s melodic and colorful yet never corny and bright. It’s simultaneously futuristic and ancient. The possibilities of sound that can be explored through Arkaik are limitless, and I feel that this established groundwork is going to allow my creativity to flourish. I cannot wait to contribute my own style to the band’s ever-evolving sound and I very much look forward to all the future shows to be played and friends to be made!”
