Sept. 1, 2015, 9:47 a.m.
DV Mark artists Biréli Lagrène and Giuseppe Continenza are interviewed by Paul Becker in the August issue of Just Jazz Guitar magazine, discussing about their collaboration, new projects, gear and more!

Here some excerpts from the interview.
Paul Becker (JJG) - The first thing I would ask is how did your collaboration start?

Biréli - "We just met in a festival many years ago and we talked for a long time about music and guitars! We got some musicians friends in common."

Giuseppe - "It was in 1998 and I remember we felt wonderful wonderful talking about our taste in music. Then I sent Biréli my record and right after that we planned our first tour in 2000. Playing with Biréli for me was just a blessing, I love his playing and he is a wonderful person as well, kind and humble. He is a genius of our time and I feel honored to collaborate with him. He is always an inspiration and I’ve learned so much from him."
Paul Becker (JJG) - Which kind of instruments do you use for your concerts and recording?

Giuseppe"I've been playing my Benedetto Cremona since 2003 and I just love the acoustic sound and the sustain. I never played a guitar even close to my Benedetto; the neck is incredible confortable and the guitar is very light. I think Bob Benedetto is a genius and I’m glad to be part of his family for so many years. 
For some acoustic situations I use my Buscarino classical guitar and an acoustic guitar made by american luthier Ronald Ho. 
For amps I use DV Mark and I just love them; there is a new model called Jazz 12 that is dedicated to archtop guitars and the sound is just unbelievable and is loud as well! I also use the DV 40 combo and the Multiamp for more electric situations and they both do their job at top levels. I use Eventide effects for reverb and delay and LaBella Strings for so many years now and I love them."

Biréli -  "I play Yamaha electric and classical guitars but I also love to play Gibson, I was using Super V, Johnny Smith and others too. 
Now I use DV Mark amps since I’ve played them in a concert with Giuseppe and I’m really impressed about the sound. I’ve some different ones and I like them all."
