Our Recommendations

Just a few of our favorite things.

If you do find something you’d like to purchase, we would love it if you’d use our links to get there. A few of the vendors buy us a cup of coffee when you do and our wives would really like us to lower the Starbucks budget. It also helps to keep the cost of Worship Artistry where it is. Thanks for your support!

Keyboard

I get asked all the time about my rig... especially about what I'm running on my iPad. So here's the low-down on my rig as well as gear to consider if you are a beginner or looking to upgrade!

Metronomes

Boss DB-90 Dr. Beat

Reverb

You see this full-featured metronome in all our bass and guitar videos. Where do we begin? Tap tempo, customizable subdivisions with easy to use slider interface, multiple voices including human voice counting, midi and quarter inch cable input so you can practice with headphones in and still hear you guitar. Includes a handy drum hardware connection. It's top of the line but you'll never need another metronome.

Tama Rhythm Watch

Reverb

The RW200 is a programmable metronome with plenty of volume and easy to use dials and plenty of volume. Built specifically for drummers but a nice substitute for the DB-90 if you want to save some coin.

Pro Metronome for iPhone

App Store

If you've already got an iPhone this little app has what you need for practice. It's plenty customizable (pay the few bucks for the paid version) and has some great rhythm trainer features. Phone apps use the phone's clock which isn't good for recording but works just fine for practicing. Try the free version and make sure it's what you want.

Pro Metronome For Android

Google Play

If you've already got a phone, this little app has what you need for practice. It's plenty customizable (pay the few bucks for the paid version) and has some great rhythm trainer features. Phone apps use the phone's clock which isn't good for recording but works just fine for practicing. Try the free version and make sure it's what you want.

My Rig

Akai MPK mini

Reverb

Akai has always made great products, and this little guy packs a lot of punch as a featherweight. I use this mainly for programing on my desktop. If I need to do something on a plane or in a hotel room, it can fit in my Thule backpack.

Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S61

Reverb

What's great about this controller is that it's fully integrated with Komplete. Plus, you can customize the knobs and buttons for third party plugins. The keys feel great and it makes for a great secondary controller. Bonus: it has customizable LEDs at the top of each key. Great for playing in the dark!

Nord Stage 2 EX

Reverb

It's RED! What more needs to be said? Ok, if you need more... it's a great keyboard in its own right. It's modular. Easy to use. Lightweight. And did I mention it's RED? I don't actually own one of these due to the $4500 price tag, but I am endorsed by Nord and I use this board weekly at my church. It's a great board for beginners to learn on!

Roland RD-700sx Stage Piano

Reverb

I've used Roland products since I first started playing and this stage piano is simply great. It has an awesome feel. It's fairly lightweight compared to other 88-key keyboards and it has onboard sounds that are great for backup, should your computer happen to die. I use this in my studio as a main controller.

Korg Nano Kontrol

zZounds

For those times when I need a small hardware controller for muting sounds and such, this is a great piece of gear. It's small, easy to use, and many top keyboardists are using these days.

M-Audio Uno 

Reverb

This is a great MIDI interface to use in case the keyboard you're playing on doesn't have USB out on it. I always keep it in my bag... just in case!

You’ve got the heart, we’ll teach you the skill.
