Silent recording and tubes vs digital! Interview with Nico Schliemann from Glasperlenspiel

We bumped into Glasperlenspiel guitarist Nico Schliemann at musikmesse 2018 in Frankfurt. He was playing GrandMeister Deluxe 40 for a week using the Red Box DI on the Silent Stage, so we asked Nico all about recording and playing live in silence, tubes versus modeling, and a bunch of other stuff… enjoy 🙂
