The Dunlop DB01 Dimebag Crybaby From Hell Wah Pedal is a signature wah pedal made by dunlop in co-operation with the legendary Dimebag Darell from Pantera. The wah pedal has an extended sweep range, a sweep range selector and a volume booster.
I love this pedal, not only for its sound but also for its distinct looks, sturdiness and solid grip.
My current amplifier is a Marshall AVT 150 Valvestate. Valvestate amps have ECC83 tube driven pre-amp and a solid state power amp.
The AVT150 has four channels (2 clean, 2 overdrive) and a series of effects (reverb, delay, chorus, flanger) which provide a versatile toolkit with many sound possibilities.
I've always liked the sound of the AVT, both the clean and the distorted channels. Nowadays though I only use the Marshall for practising. For recording I play my guitar straight through an amp emulator in Sonar.
The oldest item in the Barbachilla studio is my Fender American Standard Stratocaster, midnight wine with a rosewood body and ebony fretboard. I purchased this guitar in 1991 with a Marshall Valvestate amplifier (which I also still own but I don't use it anymore).
The Strat is a classic with an iconic design that will be instantly recognized by nearly anybody, which is the primary reason I wanted to have one myself when I decided to start playing the guitar myself.
New hardware has entered the Barbachilla Studio! The Yamaha P200 piano has got company of a Roland A800 Pro keyboard for recording. Because of the very limited midi capabilities of the P200, there was a need for an additional midi controller for realtime sound shaping, mixing and triggering transport functions which can all be handled by the A800 with its plenty of rotary knobs, buttons and sliders.
Last week I upgraded Sonar X3 to Platinum in Cakewalk's new license model. No dramatic changes but the new version includes some useful enhancements like the modified Control Bar. And three AD packs are included for free in Addictive Drums, I can't choose yet!
