GUITAR STRINGS: Elixir Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings – Ty exclusively uses Elixir strings. They last three times as long as non-coated strings and they always sound great. Perfect for those among us who are somewhat challenged around changing strings in a timely manner (*cough cough not naming names*).
PICKS: Fender Picks - The perfect pick, in Ty's humble opinion. Neither too thin nor too thick. Cheap. Colorful!
SMALL PORTABLE P.A.: Yamaha Stagepas 400i Portable PA System - WE LOVE THIS P.A.! It's small, super portable, easy to use, and best of all, it sounds fantastic with almost no effort. For small shows, we use one speaker for the house and one as our monitor and it's plenty loud, crystal clear, great EQ and good effects. Plus you can plug an ipod in to play house music. Done and done.
CAPO: Kyser Capos – Ty has used these for over 20 years. Firm grip, easy on, easy off. Easy to clip onto the headstock while you're not playing.
Stuff We Use and Love
Vitamix - O Vitamix, how do we love thee? SO MANY WAYS. If you've been on the fence, let us knock you off of it. We use ours every day. Green smoothies, soups, even ice cream. Do it.
Hydro Flask Insulated Water Bottle - The best water bottle Ty has ever owned (and there have been a lot). Keeps the HOT things HOT and the COLD things COLD all day long. Looks pretty while doing it.
