For many years, I was not aware how much of a difference good gear can make.
On the contrary, back in the day we took what we could get (if we could afford it anyways) and we never had the luxury to choose between brands and focus on improving our sound. Over the years, as Rage grew and became well known I got the chance to try out different gear. Have a look:
-> I cannot remember when I first met Mr Nori Ishii in Japan, but it must have been some 30 years ago. He and his entire team never stopped to be the most reliable and trustful partners a musician can think of and their gear speaks a language everybody understands. I am very happy to be part of their family.
