Hi, My name is Gary Carter and I am a Nashville studio musician and producer. I have toured with several Nashville artists, Music director for Faith Hill, Randy Travis, Pam Tillis, and featured instrumentalist on the Marty Stuart TV show on RFD network. I have also played on the Grand Ole Opry for the last 18 years.

My choice of DAW is ProTools on a Mac computer.
I record through a Telonics, Fender Deluxe, or Pevey 112 amp depending on the style and tone needed.
I mic the amp with a Sennheiser MD 421, then into a Universal Audio LA-610 mic preamp.
I normally send out one mono .wav file per song.
I'll be happy to send one revision if needed.
My steel tracks are cut flat unless I'm doing a modern steel part that requires effects as it's being recorded.
You can watch several of my instrumental videos on YouTube .

Thank you.

    Gary provided me with a great sounding performance for my song demo. He is fast, professional and most importantly, plays a great steel.

    Mr. Gary Carter always delivers, his skills on the pedal steel guitar are second to none in my opinion. He just played another great track with an awesome solo on the Memphis James Brothers new song entitled "Reminds Me To Start Drinkin'" Thank you so much Gary, it's an honor to hear you play. James Craig and James Grant.

    Wow and double wow! Mr. Gary Carter always delivers more than you could ever imagine ever time he shares his amazing talents on his pedal steel guitar. He just blew us away with the tracks he recently played on the Memphis James Brothers song "Earned Every Dollar I Don't Have". Thanks again Gary, James Craig and James Grant.

    Mr. Gary Carter is by far one of the very best players you'll ever have the honor to have playing on your music, he did an amazing job playing pedal steel guitar on our song "Running With These Horses" by the Memphis James Brothers. Thanks again Mr. Carter for sharing your wonderful skills with us.
