Vincent started frequenting music shops at age eight. Picking up the Bass and Guitar followed not long after, as did bands. His love for music, from Sixties Pop and Soul to AnarchoPunk and Death Metal has only deepened with the years. He still regularly plays at Jam sessions, from Berlin to Cambodia.


    Some very interesting ideas. I like the mini pa & the Blackstarminiamp.

    Thanks for your words John, glad you liked the blogpost! The mini amps really are quite amazing these days, very loud and feature rich for their size. 🙂
