We here at Strymon are fortunate to have teamed up with the best and brightest engineers. We want to make cool gear with great people.
That’s why we’re excited to announce our newest and exclusive addition to our top notch team – Ethan Tufts. Let’s just say that Ethan has a spectrum of talent. He knows what it takes.
Here’s a bit more about him!
# of guitars you own?
Just a few. I usually stick with my el cheapo Fender Toronado and my Gibson J-30 acoustic.
Your favorite gear that you constantly use?
Two Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro’s for live looping. I also use the crap out of Line 6 POD Farm.
# of dogs you’ve rescued
Two doggies from Los Angeles shelters, Edison and Emma.
How old were you when you made your first song?
First song, or first good song? I recorded several hundred terrible vocal and casio keyboard ideas when I was 10. My first not entirely terrible song came about when I was 16.
Who are 3 people / bands who have highly influenced you in music?
Radiohead, especially during the OK Computer era. Fugazi and Drive Like Jehu are also pretty big influences.
What was the first CD you ever bought?
Pretty sure it was either Public Enemy Fear of a Black Planet or Yes 90125.
How much are you willing to pay for a awesome t-shirt?
I like my shirts cheap. Dumpy thrift stores is how I roll.
# of cars you’ve owned?
I must get bored too easily. In the last 17 years I’ve owned 17 cars!
