Setup/Gear/Manufacturer of Instruments:

I primarily use my Mensinger Passenger (Strat model) right now as my main axe. I run that through a huge pedal board which I can explain to you if you pm or e-mail me 😉
Amp-wise I’m currently using a Hughes & Kettner Statesman 50 Watt Head connected to a cheap but great sounding Harley Benton 212 cab. For club gigs and stuff I’m planning to get a Mesa Boogie Express combo or something similar.[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]

[What’s this?]


What are you doing with music right now?

I’m currently doing my community service, so I’m working for almost no money (yiha!). But in May 2014 I’m planning to attend a music college here in Linz. I’m also doing a lot of gigs right now and try to practice as much as possible.

Who are some of your influences?

I think my first influence ever was Joe Satriani. At about 15 I got into all the Jazz stuff. Currently I’m absorbing everything that’s just good music, no matter what the genre is called.

Who do you/have you studied with?

I’m completely self-taught, so I guess I studied with/learned from all my great heroes. 😉

What do you plan on doing with music in the future?

I hope to somehow make a living out of it, because music is THE thing that I do because it brings me joy. So hopefully I can someday make it as a session/live musician or guitar teacher would be great too!
