Rupert Träxler

My career as a musician crystallized at a young age while learning to play the piano, guitar and violin.
After 18 years of studying classical music, a change in style was inevitable: I finally realized my childhood dream of buying an electric guitar.
The rest was then history.

The proper use of technology and the design of a unique sound was always important to me.
Only with the right equipment and effects was it possible to achieve my true guitar sound.
