Many Thanks to Matthias Konrad for these excellent pics of Achim Faerber at sound check for last month’s Project Pitchfork show at Fortress Konigstein, Germany. Matthias (Matzo) has been a professional Sound Engineer for decades, and works with Dark Electro giants Project Pitchfork, and many other acts. Below is a comment I received from him on the 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 14 that Achim Faerber uses exclusively live with the band. (Achim recently started using the 1.5 Steel–5.5 x 15 & 6.5 x 14 as well live). I really appreciate your input and support Matzo. You have heard a lot in your time, and I value your comments a great deal. Thank You….
“Just want to say that this is the greatest sounding Steel snare I have heard in my life, and I have worked a Sound Tech for more than 20 years. I personally like the regular sound of a Steel snare, but usually I always miss bottom (low mids) frequencies. Your snare has all of that together with the normal Steel sound, and a lot of punch and high end also. We played 7 shows now, and (I can’t believe it), my channel EQ is always flat. I EQ nothing, and it sounds amazing…..”
