I continue to experiment with flamenco, jazz, fusion and rock every day. I look forward very much to using the ultra-versatile VALETON FX exclusively, whether it's teaching, live on any stage or for studio recordings. It will be an honour for me to promote VALETON FX here, down-under in Oz and on all my travels!”
