Artist: Adrian "Ady" Vogel

"The Walden N600 Negra is a versatile and flexible guitar, great for the price. It sounds great on and off-stage and is easy to adjust live with its built-in EQ. The built-in tuner is very practical. All in all, a great guitar for a great price!"


At the young age of eleven, Adrian knew he wanted to follow in the footsteps of great idols like James Hetfield and Dimebag Darrell that would lead to the big stages of the world. It all began when he found an old guitar in his mothers' basement. Once the desire was awakened, he knew he'd needed better equipment and professional training.

After trying several music schools (starting with classical guitar) he found a great teacher in Ulrich Hess who broadened his horizons for more than only metal music. Adrian was educated in Jazz, Classic, Rock and Funk. In Metal he made his own experiences and started to write his own music for his first band.

After graduating high school he became friends with the band DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER. He quit his job to help the band as a backline technician and studied at a music high school at the same time. But he realized it wouldn't be possible to combine touring with the band and studying. Luckily DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER offered him a position as the guitar player so he started his search of the right equipment that was both flexible and of high quality. He was very convinced of WALDEN Guitars and today continues to be a proud WALDEN Endorser.
