Talking Tone with Dinesh Lekhraj - Anthony McCarthy

Aside from getting to check out some of the most incredible new musical equipment when it first becomes available, one of the real perks of working at MESA Hollywood is the opportunity to get to know the folks that frequent the shop – not only the music they like or the gear they play but what lead them to pick up an instrument an inspires them. We’re honored to have such an outstanding community of players to visit with and would like to share their stories and their favorite gear with the rest of the MESA Hollywood family as the opportunities present themselves.

When Anthony McCarthy drops by, he’s always got a big smile on his face. He’s one of the nicest guys you could meet and one heck of a player. After nearly 8 years in the Army, he’s now a student at the Musician’s Institute and puts his talents to work playing with Country Music Artist, Tim Hurley. Anthony knows quality gear and has a great collection of tone tools centered around his MESA/Boogie Recto-Verb 25 & 2x12 Horizontal Rectifier cabs, paired up with Tom Anderson guitars and a collection of pedals from Xotic Effects, Electro-Harmonix Dunlop & more.

Dinesh asked Anthony if he would bring down some of the gear that he’s picked up at MESA Hollywood, so we could all get a look & give a listen to how he puts them to use via the magic of a video camera and the internet - no scripts, reservations, or expectations. Just two guys talking tone. Thank you, Anthony, for taking the time to share a bit about yourself and your rig with all of us!
