Heres a list of Dean's Gear he is currently using in the studio, and for live performances. Dean prefers all analog devices as apposed to digitally enhanced effects or emulators.

"Over the years - I've tried many different Guitar, Amp & Effect combinations, finding that the best sounding rigs  were the simplest! Amp simulators and digital effects are great for practicing at low volumes, but remember that all those extra effects will hide your mistakes! Practicing with little to no effects (just use a basic overdrive and and no reverb will keep  you chops right on target!"

1980's Laney Pro Tube Lead AoR 100w Head

  "The tone from these heads is like taking a vintage Marshall JMP/Plexi and injecting it with Steroids! This head along with my FXDr. Modded YJM 308 pedal give me the tone I need!"
