Guitar

I have started playing the guitar when I was 10 years old. I have always seen the guitar as a way to express feelings, to relax and relieve the stress of everyday’s life. Still, to these days, I most play to relax at the end of a long day.

My Gear

I currently own 6 guitars (never too many):

I own several pedals (a list would be too long), but I have personally enjoyed recently playing with the pedals of my great friend at Kuro Custom Audio, who makes some incredibly beautiful pedal: check those out!

  • Soldano SLO-100 (a clone I have built several years ago, as documented in several of my blog pages)
  • Marshall 1960AV 4×12 w/ Celestion V30 (Made in England)
  • Mesa Mark 5:35 Combo 1×12
  • Peavey Express 112 (my first amp, I believe it’s still somewhere in storage)

Between December 2006 and March 2007, I have built 3 SLO-100 (two of which I have sold). It was a long work, but very rewarding, as I have told in several blog posts on these pages.

I pair my 100W head with a Marshall 4×12 w/ Celestion V30, a combination I never get enough of and totally happy with.

I haven’t built any more amp since, but I always wanted to build others, albeit I don’t really have much time these days.

Pedal Making

One of my passions is to make my own pedals. I have build many for myself and friends, choosing carefully components of good quality for the best sound. 

In the last 5 years I have then moved my designs into Eagle first, and KiCad later, pushing my design to incorporate microcontrollers and developing my PCB from scratch.
