I am a huge Steve Kimock fan for obvious reasons - I love great guitar players with beautiful tone and a real understanding of music. Kimock, like Derek is a music purist whose influences are usually Jazz, Blues and World music greats. Anyway, I posted this article on the forum a few days ago but the main interest would be from the folks here - musicians. Toward the end of this recent interview with Steve KImock he talks about some things which I'm sure you guys would find really interesting - the "12 tone intonation" system which is a whole new way of looking at music theory. Take a look - its pretty cool stuff - enjoy! Some cool gear talk as well...

Wow! I don't get the 12-tone thing. I wish I could. Steve Kimock is definitly a brilliant guitarist. I've been listening to him with Phil Lesh and Friends. He's really influenced by the Grateful Dead.

ive heard people say derke trucks is duane alman reincarnated. this man is jerry garcia reincarnated. he can miick jerrys tone to the tee.
however with his homemade electronics he can switch from heavy distortion to clean tone with the flip of a switch. one of the more cersatile guitarists ive heard

Peach89 if you like Steves work with Phil you'll LOVE what he does with his own music much much better! I highly recommend getting a Steve Kimock Band show from 2002-2004...Its really incredible music!

Snowballer, actually Steve does not use heavy distortion at all. He plays "clean" 95% of the time. The only slight break-up you will hear will be from the tubes themselves or if Steve uses his Mutron pedal which he does occasionally. The Mutron is really an envelope filter but if tweaked just right it can give you a little "hair" around the notes. One of the unique things about Kimock is he has his effects chain actually stting on top of his amps and will only plug in what he needs for a particular song. He routinely will go back to his chain and add/remove a box in between songs. He doesn't like anything getting in the way if he doesn't need it. He is a Tone-Freak and is always looking for ways to improve his sound. He leaves no stone unturned...And by the way although there are certain similarities to Garcia, he is not a Garcia-clone by any means. I am a huge DeadHead and I can honestly say Steve is technically a more skilled guitarist than Jerry - and thats really saying something!


Some photos of the master in action with some of his many guitars etc.

Is that a lute he's playing on the bottom left?

Yeah, I've heard Steve Kimock Band and it is really good. I think I'm gonna save up and get the dvd they released.

That is an Octave Mandolin that he's playing -
...one of the many guitar-like instruments he plays quite well. He will break that out on occasion.

Yes that could very well be Mitch Stein you heard who is also an incredibly talented player.
Mitch will play with a bit of an edge at times to sort offset Steves ulta-clean tone. He will use quite a bit of effects at times as well - chorus, delay, volume swells etc. Mitch will get a couple of solos here and there - he can really let loose when he wants too. He will play in his own band occasionally as well, called The Hermanators.

Mitch Stein in action...and Mitch and Alphonso Johnson
