Andy Timmons has an impressive discography, with 7 solo releases. Today, he is sounding better than ever in his band Protocol, which includes Simon Phillips on drums. Andy has played Mesa Boogie amplifiers throughout much of his career, and also has his own signature Ibanez custom guitar. He uses the Strymon Timeline delay unit as a stereo split. Other than delay, the rest of Andy’s gear is running in mono. One of Andy’s newest additions for this year is the Xotic Wah pedal.
