Dink Cook Bio

Over the last 25 years I have spent my career touring and recording for several country music artists. This has allowed me to travel nationally and internationally in support of the men and women in uniform. Another passion of mine is teaching and helping future musicians bring their talents to a high professional level. In addition to all of this, I have allowed myself time to assist in clinics with other endorsed musicians. I consider my self a perfectionist when it comes to my gear and take great pride in representing the finest Instruments and equipment on the market today.
