Christopher Sinisi
Ultimate Guitar Tone School

I am currently watching David's UGTS.I am 3 modules in and I have learned a lot about the signal path/what makes tubes do what they do and how tone stacks work. There is more to guitar tone and amp tone than I thought. Every series that I have purchased and watched is top notch and I have really learned a lot of actual useful information that I have already started to incorporate into my home recordings. I have purchased the Zoom R24 course(DVD), the Ultimate Guitar Tone School (UGTS) course, the Master EQ course, the Master Compression course (DVD)(I have not watched that one yet) and the Home Recording Course. I have learned actual information and skills that I can and have incorporated in my home recordings. I will eventually get the Killer Vocals course as well. Dave is the Man!!! His videos and knowledge are very informative and very useful!!! And his explanations are very user-friendly and not over your head. I have not been disappointed with any of the videos I have purchased.
