Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Astor Piazzolla, Nick Cave, J.J. Cale, Ritchie Blackmore, Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Dubliners, The Pogues... just to name a few.
I record on my trusty old Roland VS-1680 in my bedroom. Latest additions to my equipment are DAV BG-1 mic pre, RME Adi-2 AD/DA converter and a pair of Oktava MK-012 mics.
Me and my wife are also luthiers, so many of the instruments I play are self-made. Of course there are some bought ones too. You can find more information on our instruments from our web page: .
