Instruments & Accessories
As people ask me about my guitars and the equipment I use on the road, I'm very happy to answer those questions on this page.
For solo concerts I play a fantastic O50C AB/RW, which was made for me by the great George Lowden in September 2014.
The guitar has the following properties:
- Top: Redwood
- Back & Sides: African Blackwood
- Neck: 60 mm with at 14. fret (Fingerstyle neck), Figured Maple neck
- Pickup-System: LR Baggs Anthem
When I work with "Iontach" or Peter Kerlin another beauty of the Lowden family comes into play: a lovely L-25 from the 80's, made in Ireland:
- Top: Ceder
- Back & Sides: Indian Rosewood
- Pickup-System: Fishman Ellipse Aura
My instruments are well protected by the wonderful carbon fiber cases from Jeff Hoffee.
The sound system I use on stage is the "Bose L1® Compact System" and the "T1 ToneMatch®" desk.
