Alessandro "Asso" Stefana

The first time I went in contact with the name "Gegè" was 2007. We was preparing for the first Mike Patton "Mondocane" Tour and on drums that was the legendary Gegè Munari (at the time he was 75). When I heard him playing, my mind immediately went back to the Italian Golden Age sounds of the '50 and '60. The same happened again now with this "Gegè" Fuzz pedal by TEFI. Amazing Germanium Fuzz sound made in Italy. Long life to both "Gegè" !
