About Evan Von Himmel
It was back in 1993 when I decided to learn guitar. I bought an electric AriaProII JS (red) -a very cheap instrument but good enough for a begginer. I had no patience to take some music lessons -with all these "blah - blah" theories- so I asked a friend of mine who knew to show me some chords. So I started playing some "easy" punk stuff for about 8 hours a day - and with no amp! A few months later I bought my first amp -a Squier 15W- and an Arion Distortion pedal.
Then I joined a punk band - but there was really "no future" on it!
In 1997 I bought my second guitar: an Epiphone Firebird (red, again!), which has a pretty nice clear sound and a very "buzzy" distorted one -and which now is my back-up- and some more pedals.
In 1998 I bacame a member of a Greek-Rock band for about 6 months and then I formed a dark wave/ gothic band ("Dreams For Ashes"). We were two guitarists and one bass player and we used a drum machine, because we love The Sisters Of Mercy. Everybody loves The Sisters. In the mean time I bought a great 12-string acoustic Fender. 2 years and few gigs later, the "Dreams" self-destructed.
After all, my gear includes an Epiphone LP Goth (black - not red!!!), a Marshall MG30DFX, a DigiTech RP300A and... many passion for music!
Since 2010 I've built a home studio for my ane-man-project (TRAUM:A). Sometimes I think I'll never accomplish to become a really great guitarist, but I love what I can express with my guitar. For what's worth.
