Emmy Award-winner Brian Tarquin has chosen the JDK R20 two-channel mic pre and R22 two-channel, four-band equalizer for one of his newest projects: Guitar Masters, Vol. 5.

"You know, I've always been a big fan of the old API stuff, so when I saw that API was putting out the JDK brand I was very intrigued - especially with the R22 compressor," said Tarquin, who has previously recorded artists such as Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Frank Gambale and Billy Sheehan. "I knew the
R22 was based on the original live mixing Paragon console, and then I saw that JDK had the EQs. JDK has some fantastic stuff."

In his own career as an artist, Tarquin has had more than thirty commercial releases, which include several Top ten Jazz radio hits. Tarquin has composed pieces for a number of television shows such as Extra, TMZ and CSI, established his own boutique record label - BHP Music - and has even recently released the book Recording Techniques of the Guitar Masters in addition to recording the Guitar Masters album series.
