You are so talented and I am so proud to be considered a friend of yours. You are like a brother to me......
Very nice playing! I had never heard of a harp-guitarist! I'm impressed!
sounds awesome! Hope to see you perform.
Music must be dreamt of in the soul, felt in the heart and generated by the spirit. Robust and filled with timeless character! One shouldn't underestimate your capabilities.. many music scores and healing songs of meditation could be possible avenues to quench the thirst of your listeners.
Hello from Sweden!Have a nice day my friend! Gun
You have always been amazing whether or not the world is watching... But it's nice to see them finally open their eyes.

Hi Tim! You were my guitar teacher for a few years back at Mills Music in Poulsbo...I am thinking it was from 2003-2005. I was in a discussion with someone about MxPx and it reminded me of you. Hope you are doing good, glad to see you are still making music. You are a very gifted musician and I miss getting to hear you play every week! -Anne

Setting her with Christopher, my grandson and his guitar. And the beat goes on... He is wanting to learn how to play the guitar and I fetched up your site to give him inspiration. Seems that so many have the call but so many fail to meet the commitment. With luck, and perseverance, he will some day meet his expectations.
Tim - it was a sheer pleasure to be the Emcee for your set at Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle. I was mesmerized by the arrangements, and the stories behind them. Thanks for sharing with Seattle. Bruce
Hi Tim, havent heard from you in awhile.. I see you still kicking butt playing. I gave your card to a friend of mine that wants to have her grandson take some lessons.. I told her you were the best around.. Regards, Brian Moore

"My Orange Bangeetar is an expansive, full spectrum tone machine! 

The beastly gain, infinite sustain, massive saturation, soaring highs, articulated mids and thundering lows make the Orange Bangeetar my goto pedal for crafting uniquely voiced overdriven tones while enabling me to procure my sonic space in any live mix onstage. 

The cab simulator output is especially useful in the studio for recording direct into an interface while simultaneously tracking separate amp centric tracks from the same performance. 

Hitting the boost switch takes the whole thing to the stratosphere!"



“My Orange Pedal Baby is a mighty powerhouse capable of producing thundering, earth shaking volume all while maintaining pristine clarity from 1 to 10!

As a touring guitarist performing in 3 extremely diverse bands spanning multiples of genres, I can configure my Orange Pedal Baby in a myriad of ways to fit whichever sonic application I am looking for be it old school stomp box rock, intricate metal, digitally processed modern jazz tones, ultra pristine, natural acoustic sounds and everything in between.”


“The Orange Acoustic Pre is an invaluable element to my sound, from the smallest clubs to the largest theaters I can depend on it to deliver a flawless performance every night. The vast tonal possibilities, transparent signal boosting and superior dynamics of the Acoustic Pre are unparalleled in allowing the slightest nuances of my acoustic performances to be captured effortlessly both live and in the studio.”
