    What brand name and gauge guitar strings did he use mostly Monday, 25 February 2019

Hanzel Und Gretyl are an industrial metal group, formed by members Kaiser Von Loopy and Vas Kallas. They formed in 1993, sharing a vision of the future that focused on the rise of machines to power over Earth. They are often mistaken for a German band due to their heavy use of German lyrics and German sounding pseudonyms, but are actually based in New York, to which founding members Kaizer Von Loopy and Vas Kallas are native.

One of our readers asked us if we could find out what guitar gear the band uses and we were able to find an email Loopy wrote to a fan in 2008 describing his gear setup. It appears that Loopy's rig started off a bit more grandious in the past with Mesa amps, eventually moving to just a rack, and then pod xt boards.

If you have any info to add/correct here, please leave a comment.
