T8 Cherry

We love transparent cherry guitars …. in this case also with cherry wood, a maple neck and walnut fretboard. The first solid T8 we did so far.

U8 Deluxe Walnut sunburst

Inspired by the U8 Custom we did at the beginning of this year a customer asked for a walnut top. We still had the sister part on stock so we built this beautiful U8 Deluxe with a slight burst finish. It has a black Korina body, korina/walnut/korina 3-piece neck and a maple fretboard. The pickups

U8 Quilted Greenburst

We made this guitar for a customer that absolutely loves quilted maple and we think it turned out to look amazing. The body is made of alder with a greenburst quilted maple top. Neck and fretboard are made of plumwood, a local wood we really love. It has a Delano Pickup which sounds amazing and

T8 Natural Redwood

Stefan treavelled through the redwoods in california at the beginning of this year. Two weeks after a customer asked if we could do a T8 with a redwood top. What a lucky coincidence. This T8 has a redwood top, european cedar body, 3-piece cedar/walnut/cedar neck and a walnut fretboard. One of the best feeling guitars

U8 Custom

Stefan came up with this idea of a custom U8. He loves purple heart and the semi hollowed feel of the AU8. Why should we not combine this. It has a black korina body, 3-piece korina/purple heart/korina fretboard and the first prototype of our mellow pickups which is splittable as a single coil. We also

T8 Seafoam Green

We had this idea of a bicolored T8 after finishing the first prototype. It looks amazing with the seafoam green maple top on a mahogany body. Fretboard is ebony. Photos by Thomas Buchta

T8 greyburst

This T8 is one of the lightest instruments we ever built. It is all maple with a swamp ash body. This was the first time we used our vintage pickups and it really sound JBass like. Photos by Thomas Buchta

THE|SPUR. – “Rebirth”

THE|SPUR. – impressive, progressive, technically demanding music with electrifying and passionate performance. The band establishes ties between classic, melodic progressive rock music biased towards heavy metal rudiments and modern, song-oriented, technically complex approaches. Superior melodic sections and almost frantic instrumental outbreaks don’t interfere with the pure structures and diverse harmonies. When Stephan Schroth (drums) brought

ISAAC VACUUM – “LORDS”

&lt;a href=”http://isaacvacuum.bandcamp.com/album/lords”&gt;LORDS by ISAAC VACUUM&lt;/a&gt; In 2016 the band around Touch Guitar player Stefan Huth named ISAAC VACUUM , managed the balancing act between energetic live concerts (with established acts like “the Intersphere”, “The Hirsch Effekt”  and “Port Noir” amongst others) and  recording their first full length album on their own stream. After the self-titled

One year later “THE STONEHOUSE” is finally released. The album features two of today’s most original, ingenious and decidedly “risk taking” electric guitar proponents, easily among the instrument’s most

FACE is the latest release from drummer and percussionist Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Stick Men, Mr. Mister) and touch guitarist Markus Reuter (Stick Men, Crimson ProjeKct, Tuner).  Buy it here:     Housed in an provocatively surreal cover featuring artwork by Tool’s Adam Jones, FACE consists of just one 35 minute-long track FACE presents a

Stick Men – “Prog Noir”

<a href=”http://stickmen-moonjune.bandcamp.com/album/prog-noir”>Prog Noir by Stick Men</a> With riveting performances by the modern prog-rock legends Stick Men – Tony Levin, Markus Reuter and Pat Mastelotto – , “Prog Noir” is ambitious, achieving and immediately essential.

DiM13NSiON – Rugami

This album is the companion to DiM13NSiON’s (pronounced Dimension Thirteen) Imagur, their first album. Both released in the same year, the duo planned those 2 albums together. They are linked in many ways but are mirrors to each other, Imagur and Rugami. <a href=”http://store.madducksrecords.com/album/rugami”>Rugami by DiM13NSiON</a> Where Imagur was dark and contemplating human machinery and

ISAAC VACUUM – ISAAC VACUUM

Technically sophisticated progressive-rock meets a heavy, sludgy and organic sound, which is – due to a focus on catchy harmony-vocals – still plausible despite dark complexity.
