He sings so the girls swoon, and plays guitar, so the guys gasps. Mads Langer has the whole package, and he also uses two Hansen guitars extensively both in the studio and on stage. Unfortunately, the two unique guitars were stolen recently, but we hope that one day they find their way back home. Private Photo.
Guitarist/Songwriter/Producer he played in the Danish band Saybia, what took the Danes by storm with their debut “The Second you Sleep” in 2002, and since then, they have played hundreds of concerts both at home and abroad. Sebastian has now left the band to pursue other musical avenues but is still playing his Hansen, and he does it extraordinarily well, he has been our Beta tester for pickups for years, thanks to his ears our pickups sound as good as they do.
Veto was formed in Aarhus in 2004 and has since released three highly acclaimed albums. In 2007 they were named the “Best Danish Band” at the Danish Music Awards. They also have won the P3 Awards,. We are proud of Veto playing both bass and guitars from Hansen. Photo: PR
Kasper Falkenberg, Guitarist/Producer/Singer/songwriter touring with Rasmus Seebach and Joey Moe (earlier Burhan G, NOAH to name a few) Watch out for Kasper in TC Electronic product videos for some great playing. Kasper has two Hansen S-style guitars. We were lucky enough to meet him on the road with Rasmus Seebach, for a chat about Guitars Gear and Tone.
Mikkel Balle from the band Dūné, is really satisfied with his Hansen Guitar, we have known Mikkel for years, he have always come to us for repairs, when his Les Paul took a fall shortly after joining Dūné, he jumped on the chance to get a G-Tone of his own, Mikkel has a special pickup in his G-tone we replaced the magnet in our normal bridge humbucker for an Alnico 8 for a bit more bite.
