Himmelstrutz

Himmelstrutz

As rockers and rockets use fancy names I do the same. My name is C. J. Himmelstrutz.

Why? To honour the Swedish author, Sture Dahlström who in one of his great novels told the amazing story about the man, the myth, Caotico Q Himmelstrutz. My own life started 1976, at 12 years of age.

It was a saturday when I heard the intro of Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak on the radio. What a riff! What a sound! I was trapped immediately and this made me start playing guitar the same year.

In line with that I also started to play with electronics as the sound was—and still is—at least as important as the actual playing. My first guitar amplifier was built in 1982 and here we are now, with all the way original designs, 100% handmade in Sweden.

    Mr. Nutcracker is a full range Booster/Tone Enhancer with a built in high grade, adjustable optical compressor. Mr. Nutcracker's wide gain/volume range, coupled with the well balanced compressor makes it like a box of chocolate for musicians. Use Mr. Nutcracker to get bite and sustain, or to add that magic sparkle. If you think any kind of compression sucks, turn down the 'Comp' control to get it out of the way and use Mr. Nutcracker as a dynamic booster/enhancer/overdriver! Most likely, though, you will soon recognize yourself turning that knob up again as you suddenly started to love 'compression'. And if you play the bass it's a good idea to check out Mr. Nutcracker as it sounds great for guitars and bass guitars!

    Hop on Gekko to transport yourself out in the space, to that pseudo-natural place you didn't know existed these days. You have probably heard those kind of sounds on old vinyl, or when your drunk & sentimental grandpa yelled about it! But still you have no idea what he was talking about..? It's about an 'echo' or a'reverb' effect; the fantastic sound/feeling the old noisy man tried to describe was most likely generated by a magnetic drum machine or a tape echo! With that in mind, Himmelstrutz Gekko was born, to add a natural space, a not so clean, jumping lizardish sound to get heard in a mix and to make the creation of music more inspiring.Yeah, that's an appropriate way to describe Gekko—musical & inspiring! Added to that Gekko is not just another "blue/soft/analog sounding" echo/delay. It's worse. And louder, if you want...
