Backline

w/ Julia Kugel

Who are you, and what do you do?

I’m Julia Kugel and play guitar in The Coathangers.

What hardware do you use?

I play a Fender Mustang out of a Vox AC15 amp with a tuner pedal and an EP Booster. I just fell in love with an Earthquaker pedal called the Transmisser that I looking forward to using in the future!

And what software?

To demo, I use my iPhone or Cool Edit Pro on my PC that is a very very old and slow program but its the only one I know how to use.

What would be your dream setup?

I’m happy with my set up. However, I'd like to own a Music Man amp and a Rickerbacker guitar just to switch things up. Plus for my personal use, I would love a piano, a steel drum, and an accordion.
