Aaron Northcutt

Guitar & Arrangements

 

The Guitar is an American made by Suhr Modern.
The Strings are made by Joy String. This Guitar has a whammy bar.
The audio output is fed into a Line 6 Helix digital guitar amp simulator.

This allows for fantastic tone at all levels, from the quietest to the loudest.

If he wants a “marshall stack” or a “fender twin reverb”, he can obtain that tone within a moment’s notice.

Gerhard Albinus

Accordion, Vocals, & Synthesizer Bass

 

He plays two different Accordion brands, a Giulietti Artist Series and a Borsini Vienna 11. They are both full range chromatic piano accordions. The Giulietti has internal microphones were the Borsini requires external micing.
Each Accordion had a modification installed. On the lefthand button side, the octave bass notes have been wired to output MIDI Data. This allows another instrument to be played at the same time as the accordion.
This other instrument is a FM Rack Module MIDI Synthesizer, the Yamaha TX81Z, that is used to simulate an Electric Bass Guitar. The Yamaha TX81Z's Bass Sound was a staple on many Pop Music Hits in the 1980s.
