There's no tone I can't get. If I hear a sound in my head, then I dial it into my amp and it's there. There's so much versatility with the richness of pure tone.


Since starting to play the guitar at the age of 7, Ryszard has played through many brands of amps. But seeing Thomas Blug's Switchblade video changed everything. He was captivated by the tone and knew right then that there was no going back. Since then he has developed a trust and bond with Hughes & Kettner amplifiers.

Ryszard is best known for his style of modern rock/metal guitar playing. He currently MDs for various artists and bands. As well as doing gear demos, he is also currently working on his own melodicore band Alareiks.
