This is (not) a toy.

Well, this is something beautiful for sure. I really love the sound of the reverb. I have decided not to go for a Big Sky but to stay with my Cathedral and add Neunaber’s Immerse to my set. I might combine them or alternate. But there is an addition in my mind to these two already… But for now, I just immerse.

weapon of choice no.12: Zoom BFX-708 Bass Effects Processor. made by @zoomsoundlab. this was my first efx i have ever bought in the mid nineties. i used to keep it more than simple and minimalistic. it is dusty now and i have not used it since 2002. but it did a great job back then and served me well during all my shows with my bands and the supporting shows as a hired bass-player like for whitney houston, marla glen or for joe cocker between 1999-2001 and many more. good old memories 😊

weapon of choice no.13: Super Chorus CS5. made by @officialibanezguitars. this was my 2nd efx i have ever bought in the nineties and the last one for 15 years. this one and my bass effects processor used to be a strong combi for new-metal gigs back then. the cs5 is still working and has a nice clean chorus sound. good old memories 😊

Der Eierschneider

Auf der Suche nach neuen Klängen bin ich durch meine Mitarbeiterin des Miyuko Cafés auf ihren Eierschneider aufmerksam geworden. Sie erzählte mir, dass sie ihn zu Weihnachten bekam und er mache wunderbare Sounds. Vor Kurzem brachte sie ihn ins Café mit und ich machte erste Aufnahmen zusammen mit meinem eigenem, halb defekten Eierschneider. Ein schöner verstörender «Harfensound». Danke an Danique :-)

Recording a table…

While I was in Kyoto I discovered a kind of designer object: a table made of metal which was kept together by wires. I asked the owner for permission to capture the sound by pulling the wires. The outcome was a sound which reminded my of bells. I am hoping to use this recorded session one day…
