In this week’s Gig Gab, Dave Brunyak–known now as Dallas Corbin–joins Dave Hamilton for a deep dive into the art of persona creation and redefining one’s place in the music world. They reminisce about Dave’s first appearance on the show back in 2015 and delve into the genesis of ‘Dallas Corbin,’ a persona that carved his path into country music.

Inspired to learn more about country music after hearing Lee Brice’s “I Drive Your Truck,” Dave illustrates the freedom that comes when embodying a character. Emphasizing the show’s mantra, “Always Be Performing,” he discusses the importance of adapting to various environments and audiences.

The conversation shifts to technical aspects, focusing on managing stage volume and the transition to using In-Ear Monitors (IEMs) for better sound control. Dave shares insights into his move towards an ampless setup, highlighting the use of the Helix Guitar Processor and the significance of selecting the right gear. He candidly discusses his guitar tone signal path and the practical benefits of going ampless — especially for someone using in-ear monitors — offering an insider’s view into the technicalities that can make or break a gig.

The episode wraps with a Gear Gab segment, spotlighting affordable yet effective equipment like the CCA C-12 Universal Fit IEMs, proving that high-quality performance doesn’t always require a hefty price tag.
