Today I’m packing for Ireland & Israel! I’ll be in Ireland for a few days, playing a gig in Dublin and exploring the countryside. After that I’m heading to Israel for a week to explore, shoot video, take photos, and experience this historic and incredible place. I’m so excited for what the next 12 days will bring. 🇮🇪 🇮🇱 • • • • • 📷Canon 5D MKIV, 2019 #socality #finditliveit #stayandwander #letsgosomewhere #welltravelled #chasinglight #travel #exploremore #makemoments #wanderfolk #adventurethatislife #peoplescreative #welltraveled #postthepeople #theoutbound #agameoftones #campvibes #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #freedomthinkers #folkgood #visualsgang #whatitalyis #europe #visualsoflife #flatlays #israel #folkmagazine #flatlay #collectivelycreate

Easily one of the most epic Tick-sized setups you can ask for.

Can’t say no to an omnichord!

We heard digital profiling is the future.

The Lords of Low End

Pizza anyone?

An incredible rig all the way from Romania!

How compelling is this dual F Bass #monofits? Very.

There’s just something about black on black

And of course, Megadeth’s David Ellefson!

Out with the old and in with the new! I’m absolutely wrapped to announce officially joining the @Monocreators Cases family! These are high end, practical, and premium cases, covering me for all my snare, cymbal, and sticks case needs. A little info – The snare cases are heavy duty, have pockets, and come with extra ‘removable’ padding to cover you for ALL your various snare sizes and protection, and the cymbal cases are ‘backpack’, have extra compartments and dividers, internal pockets for spare keys and hihat clutches, and have extra reinforcement and padding anywhere where the cymbals May rest and wear could be prominent. If you’ve been following me for a while now you know I only promote and endorse gear I truly stand by, and these Mono cases tick all the boxes for me. I have a bunch of cymbals and snares and all I want is to know that when I’m mobile, or when my gear is stored, it’s safe, protected, and out of the elements. A big shout out to everyone at Mono. Love your work. • @monocreators #rhythmicallycaffeinated #pocketandchops4life #thebicknellprinciple #timepluseffortequalsresults
