Scott Minchk grew up in Madison, Wisconsin (USA). After seeing A Flock Of Seagulls on MTV in 1981, he wanted an electric guitar more than anything! And, two years later, on his 16th birthday, his dream came true…sort of. He got a crappy Kay SG copy from a local pawn shop…it only had five strings and the electronics didn’t work. He held the headstock against the wall as he played, to make it louder in the absence of an amplifier. Sadly, the guitar was thoroughly uninspiring, and would end up back at the pawn shop just months later.
Flash forward three years to 1987, Scott still wants to play the guitar, so he goes out and buys his first “real” guitar, a brand new Ibanez RG-550…the rest is history.
Today, Scott can be found twisting knobs and trying to recreate the great guitar tones from the 70’s & 80’s on any piece of multi-effects gear he can get his hands on.
Scott’s signature rigs:
Gritty Chorus – Klone Centaur (Uses two chorus effects, one only heard above 1.5khz)
Freaky Brute – Eric Gales Brute Drive (Uses on the delay’s modulation for freaky effect)
Phase-Wah – Wampler Pinnacle (Uses Eddy Phaser for a nearly auto-wah effect)
Spinning Timmy – Paul Cochrane Timmy (Uses the rotary speaker)
Triple Fuzz – Analogman Sunface (Uses two additional fuzz effects for massive fuzziness!)
