Here's a list of the gear I use on stage. I bought all this stuff and I like using it because it not only sounds good, but is also reliable. I've discovered that it can not only take the road abuse, but it also sounds good in many, many different types of rooms, venues and festivals through a myriad of PA systems.
DI/EQ (I use the Acoustic Guitar Pre-amp): Orchid
Pickups (I use the IP-1X in my National Resonator and the IP-1 in my Collings Acoustic): Highlander
Capos (I use a few different models): Shubb
Strings: under reconsideration (check back soon!)
