Peach Guitars | Get the ERIC STECKEL sound!

14 Jun 2023

Don’t you just love it when an artist fuses 2 completely contrasting styles and creates something fresh and new? Well we do, and one of our favourite artists right now is the imperious, Eric Steckel. With his unique blend of blues and metal, Eric is a serious talent, whether it’s his tasty blues infused riffs or his Dimebag-esque fleet fingered lead lines, you can’t help but be inspired by his playing!

A guy like Eric, who treads the line so effortlessly, needs gear that can cover a lot of ground, and he’s put his trust in 2 of the finest boutique brands around!

So let’s start with the amp, the epicentre of this tonal behemoth. Introducing the Mezzabarba Custom Amplification Eric Steckel M-Zero Overdrive, a collaboration between Eric and Pierangelo Mezzabarba, one of the most highly thought of European amp designers. 

Taking the existing M-Zero platform, and tweaking it to Eric's own personal specifications, the ES signature version boasts an increase in gain, low mids, bass, and depth, while the Presence knob works to add aggression and upper mid attack.

The dual channel platform offers four sounds, with the Drive channel featuring Boost and Brite switches with the Extra Boost controlled by a footswitch. The Preamp controls include Drive (Ch.1), Overdrive (Ch.2), Bass, Middle, Treble, Volume 1, and Volume 2, while the Power Amp controls offer Presence, Depth, and Feedback for power amp overtones. The all-tube FX Loop and custom transformers by Onori provide exceptional sound quality and reliability. This is a serious amp for a serious player, check out our videos to see exactly what we mean!

So what about the guitar, that’s got to be something pretty special, right? Correct, our friends at Knaggs have a reputation for high quality and the Knaggs Eric Steckel Kenai is no exception!

Utilising the traditional tonewood powerhouse combo of Mahogany and Maple, this Knaggs boasts a super thick body with almost no back carve, it’s super resonant and delivers a monster tone!

The neck features block inlays and boasts a sweet old school vibe 3 a side headstock. With a 24.75" Scale length, 22 frets and a 12" radius it is smooth, beautifully finished and balanced, with great access right up the neck this guitar is at home playing a wide range of styles.

With a stop tail bridge and Kluson tuners, this guitar has great tuning stability and offers a playing experience unlike any other. With a duo of Seymour Duncan Candy humbuckers you get a smooth, articulate tone. These humbuckers are a special recreation of the Alnico III humbuckers found in Steckel's 1960 Les Paul. This set is beautifully dynamic and delivers an incredible tone.

The attention to detail and innovation on display here is equal to the very best on the market.
