»The 8 Of Space«

Our customer and good friend Dirk Dresselhaus / Schneider TM just released his new and highly recommended album »The 8 Of Space«! He used his Deimel Firestar FireSchneiderTM in his recordings quite a lot. In the instrumental end part of “iBot (With A Soul)”, for example, he simulated a broken robot with the behind the bridge pickup + built in LesLee … in »Spiral« it is the elongated overtones that spiral over the groove. Besides that, Schneider TM also used it as a »normal« guitar here and there which then was partly processed quite heavily through different effects.

Superbooth 21
Deimel Firestar LesLee Synchronizer


Vaccinated and ready for the first show in more than 2 years: We will be part of the Superbooth 21, Berlin Germany presenting our Deimel Firestar Synchronizer. By joining the pulse, generated by the built in Pickup Leslee® using wave in/wave out patch cable connectivity, it is possible to either send or receive a waveform or sending out a CV signal. It is even possible to do sync recording by using a CV to Midi generator, or to be in sync with video signals for performing artists.

Deimel Firestar Artist Edtion »GAME CHANGER«


we are very excited to present this collaborative work of  William ‘Git’ Laskin and us  on the latest Artist Edition.



This is the first time that we have built an artist edition twin set consisting of a Deimel Firestar guitar and bass. The Deimel Firestar Artist Edition »GAME CHANGER« is a tribute to all kids that have fought and are currently fighting for their ideas and rights around the globe. Greta Thunberg might be the most famous one of our times, but there have been many, many more, just naming a few on the side of the guitar, that influenced the story of all our lives. Taking on this energy both, guitar and bass, come with a built in LesLee and powerful hand wound pickups. The manifold sounds build into both instruments also reflect the broad range of the voices of the brave! 

I make all drawings on paper first and built a big collage that I transfer with a napkin technique onto the prepared woods. A natural matte finish preserves the art work.  

When Grit asked us if I would be interested in a collaboration, we felt very honored. Grits work has inspired us for years. His approach to political and society relevant themes is unique in the guitar world. 

Though Grits and our lives are on different sides of the globe, we are part of one big family and it is on us to keep an eye on it.
