Welcome to my personal website.
It contains a brief overview of my professional career, lots about my hobbies and interests, some latest
news and more about me, myself and I.
Inspired by the legandary Marshall amps, the JTM45 and 1959SLP,
Luciano Amps presents an amp according to the 'plexi' specifications for the classic Marshall sound with the versatility of the high-end
tops of today!

The Dutch Grodno Groovers in Belarus
Grodno, 3-5 June 2010 - Representing Holland at the Festival of National Cultures in Grodno, Belarus, turned out to be a once
in a lifetime experience. The band, including myself, was put together especially for this occasion and with its highly dynamic gigs (the final one at
the big square with an audience of over 50.000 people) it left a stunning impression across Grodno. Within three days
the bandmembers had turned into 'superstars' in this city of the former Sovjet Union.
Rozendaal, 10 Nov 2009 - By exchanging the pickups of my Fender Strat, and carrying out the final modification on my Marshall amp, I have succeeded in
finding that real vintage Strat sound we know so well from Jimi Hendrix and Steve Ray Vaughan!
Gouda, 16 aug 2009 - At an age of (around) 15 years old Clyde, our 'high five matey', has passed away and left us with his sis Bonnie. We all miss you allot buddy.

The Jostle finished off the Dutch October tour succesfully. New gigs will be planned soon for October 2009.
Born in the summer of '69 and grown up in Leuvenheim, a small village
not far from Arnhem in the Netherlands,
I developed my interrest for nature, photography, sports and music in a safe and easy going environment.
Studying Electronics at the HAN Bachelor College (HTS) in
Arnhem provided me a new dimension to my love for guitars and musical equipment, as well as High-End Audio systems.
I graduated in 1995 and spent the majority of my professional career so far within Telecommunications/ICT in
the Netherlands, Germany and
the United Arab Emirates.
To me, one of the biggest challenges in life is finding balance between ratio and intuition, between psyche and what is physical.
Life is to enjoy, and once in balance we're able to enjoy it properly.. together.
Living in Velp near Arnhem on the edge of the
National Park Veluwezoom
with its magnificent hills, woods and heathland, I found the place where I feel best. Pulling out of a busy daily life this is where I play my
guitar, work on my audio productions or take my mountainbike into the hills.
I also have passion for technology based on a large technical/engineering background. On top of that, with my commercial sense and competences,
I am a Sales & Marketing professional who loves to operate within the dynamic fields of internet technology.
I consider myself a selling (business) consultant who empathizes with my customers and bring solutions with real added value to their projects.
I like progression, take initiative, develop business, optimize the market approach and align marketing resources and internal processes.
All with empathy, intuition and creativity.
By combining my knowledge of electronics and my musical passion and activities, I started building high-quality tube guitar amplifiers. Built for the guitarist
who wants only the best sounding amp for his gigs and studio productions, the amplifiers of Luciano Amps
reproduce the ultimate vintage sound and feel of the
legandary Marshall 'plexi' amps, combined with the versatility of todays guitar amplifiers.
