One Question Interviews: Noisem

Sebastian (Noisem)

SPB: From when you were starting out to now, what parts of your setup have really helped voice your sound over the years?

Sebastian: I'd have to say the most important piece of gear to the Noisem sound has been my white Fender Stratocaster. In terms of playability and ease of use to me they're second to none. When I play live I need to cut through a harsh wall of sound and the presence of the typically bright and jangly Strat lends its hand to that well. People grill me all the time about using a Strat too and I have to remind them of all the killer music that has been created on Strats. Everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Iron Maiden to Possessed and Obituary have used them to great effect. Without that guitar I don’t think we would sound the same.
