Michael Fight ,

Show for gear heads and non gear heads alike!

This show is great for musicians of any level. Know a lot about gear? You’ll love the in depth reviews. Don’t know a bunch? You’ll love hearing about new gear and get examples of how to use it. Plus Pat has brought on some great guest so far!
