Here she is in all variations: the beautiful „Novita 3.0“ by Gewa company. First as a four-string model in many various colors, the company developed additional a five-string model.
At the yesterday’s video shoot I was allowed to introduce my matt black five-string violin, which accompanied me already at our last tour “Eisheilige Nacht” 2019 of Subway to Sally.
I am not only enchanted by the dreamy design of the instrument, but especially by it’s warm and natural sound. Which becomes complete with strings by Thomastik-Infeld. I additional discovered, that my guitar effect pedals love this instrument and give me a higher margin at composing sounds, than I am used to.
Hopefully I can show you this nice effect within one of my next violin video blog episodes: #TheRockViolinVlog on YouTube
We shot our video at the incredible and music addicted hotel „Jams“ in Munich. Just visiting the bar is worth a trip there.
Many thanks for having me, dear GEWA! It is a great honor!
Oh boy!! It was quite a challenge to start the concert year with the own band Ally the Fiddle, but nearly completely with new guys (the music academy asked for the bachelor concerts at this time). But fortunately we could master it – thanks to some very ambitious musicians!
A very huge thanks to: Diemo Heuer (guitar), Tom Geldschläger (guitar), Jan Erichson (drums), Dennis Schwachhofer (drums) and to our irreplaceable Mu(lti)fu(nktional) Rouven (Chapman Stick and bass)!!
The band with certainly the most strings in the world shouts out a loud THANK YOU to everyone, who visited us and carried us on their hands at our concert evenings!
After our annual festival “Eisheilige Nacht” of Subway to Sally, which has been especially successful in 2019 (many thanks!!!) I am going to start the year 2020 with my own band and am very excited to play the first venues!
‘We are playing Progressive Rock/Metal and Jazz Rock with a six-string electric violin in the front as well as with the extraordinary voice of Ally. While we are introducing live some songs of our latest album “UP” we are as well performing marvelous cover songs in our unique sound by artists as Joe Satriani, Jerry Goodman, Jean-Luc Ponty, and Björk i.e..’ – Ally the Fiddle
One year ago I was shooting this video, which is available now for the international audience: I was allowed to participate in a commercial for the company “Endress + Hauser“. Music: Frank Mösner, Violin: Ally Storch (six-string electric violin by Fidelius)
On November 23 I was allowed to give a workshop concert at the place of the Schwabe brothers. Ulrich Schwabe is the violin maker and owner of “Fidelius” instruments. So also of my wonderful six-string violin. Martin Schwabe is the expert for Historical Keyboard Instruments.
The concert has been a full success and the workshop nearly burst! I was accompanied by Rouven Haliti (member if my band Ally the Fiddle) and his Chapman Stick. Which got more attention than my violins. ;)
Many thanks to everyone for this unforgettable evening!
