    Love it. A tour through a (first class) gear-head's room. I'm going to dial up the Stanley Clark "grove" vid

    I really enjoy peeking into artist's ateliers--particularly of this nature. I enjoy seeing what we acquire to assuage our imagination

    (nice sound from "9 string ukulele ceniza," and oud--Omar Fadel):

    That's good stuff there. As a percussionist, I've always been a big fan of Copeland. I really like the stuff he's done with Les Claypool. He's truly a master of syncopation...

    I would not have thought Copeland will be into mandos, but why not and it's great!

    If his studio gear is any indication--he's not...mostly "rock" stuff

    (oops--that's "Clarke"...with an "e")

    You might be surprised, actually. He plays a wide variety of instruments. If you look at some of the work he's done over the years, you'll see he's a rather well-rounded musician and a decent composer.

    I've heard some good stuff he's scored for film. He certainly seems interested in a diversity of sounds and traditions. Just observing that I didn't see anything particularly to indicate an interest in playing acoustic stringed instruments, in his studio. Frankly, I'm surprised he doesn't have a large cimbalom--they're available on ebay too, and very cool for a percussionist to fool with...not to mention provide very evocative sounds for recording purposes
