Horst Musical Instruments
Horst (a German Engineer) has been making Guitar Pedals since he was 12 years old. Driven by the love of sound and distortion, he obtained a degree (during the 80’s in Germany) in Electronics and Computer Design, with emphasis on Audio Electronics.
He moved to Australia shortly after and eventually settled on the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne, Australia, where he was actively involved in the local Music Industry.
Since then, he created numerous pedals and devices ranging from Guitar Amplifiers and Valve Distortions to Analog Delays, Tremolos, various Pre-Amplifiers, Filters, Theremins and a number of MIDI Controllers like the 4x4 Drum-Trigger Module, MIDI-Theremin Controller, Controller-Knobby Box and other weird shit.
Horst is also a passionate musician and sound engineer and has been involved in the local music scene doing live sound for Willis’s Afro’s and Jasper, and mixing with local musos, from Tumbleweed, Magic Dirt and numerous peninsula bands, to big shots like Steve Nieve (from Elvis Costello Band) and Mike Patton (from Mr. Bungle and Faith No More). This helps him greatly to keep up with musician’s demands and to develop pedals and devices of leading edge standards for today’s musicians.
