Hi, I'm Marco Pregnolato, an
Italian guitarist and graduated in Biomedical engineering (Master Degree), born 27
August 1985, nicknamed "Pregno Splatter".
I've been musically active since the age of 6 years old, where I picked up my first classical guitar. My dad bought me my first SG guitar when I was 11... then I went on studying and playing...
In the years, I tried a lot of guitars, amps and stuff... I think that the best amps for pop and rock sounds are definitely the VOX Ac30s, as used by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Brian May (Queen), The Edge (U2), Pearl Jam, The Killers and others.
For more classic, hard and blues sounds, nothing beats vintage Marshalls (and not the modern reissues).
Regarding the guitar, the Parker Fly
is the best built and most techonlogic guitar the world has ever seen,
made of carbon-fibre and wood with Stainless-Steel frets, no other one
just matches. For effects, for sure rack or floor-based FX
processors are my choice, brighter and far less messy than compact
stomp-box pedals. More professional all around.
Here's a summary of my musical experiences:
Registered to SIAE (with 12 songs) and ENPALS from 2005 to 2008
Guitar teacher to children in 2007 and 2008
Semi-finalist with Samdart at MusicaControCorrente 2006, sponsored by Radio Lifegate
Concert opener for Subsonica, at Hollywood, Milan, in 2007, with Lockdown
Other minor works
On hiatus (regarding live activity) since the 2nd half of 2008
