Harri Koski: Guitarist, marketing, cordinating the production, helping hand.
Harri has been playing guitar since mid 70´s and his serious hobby turned into a business when he started Custom-Sounds (www.custom-sounds.com) in 1996. Custom-Sounds was a high-end guitar gear company from the beginning and it was one of the first “boutique" guitar shops on internet. His co-operation with Bjorn Juhl started the BJF pedals business and soon these two soul brothers were talking about the ultimate amplifier. Bjorn Juhl and Harri had the mad idea about designing the ultimate guitar tube amplifier and to make it right here in Scandinavia. Bjorn put on his propel-hat and Harri put all his energy and money into this project. Soon we found the right people to work with us and the world got a brand new amplifier that was not a clone of any vintage amp as these modern hand-wired amps often are. Harri has a collection of various Gibson guitars and early JV Squier Fenders and plugs these into his serial no: 000 Mad Professor prototype head that is played loud almost every day.
