Julia Kosterova: Lâg Guitars and Hughes & Kettner artist talks about guitar and her new album
My main instrument is 7-string Lâg Guitars from France (mahogany body, maple neck with ebony fingerboard, 27 frets, reversed headstock, Floyd Rose). It's great both on hi-gain and clean - with a coil splitting switch for sparkling clean tone.
I use a little monster Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 18 Head in the studio and TM18 or TM36 live. Great amps, both on hi-gain and clean. Red Box (speaker emulation) output is a great feature in the home studio so I can record any time of day and night directly into Pro Tools, and is often helpful live. Power attenuator is also very handy for practicing and recording, providing great tone from the cab at a reasonable volume. TM18 Head is perfect 'cabin luggage' size and easy to carry around.
