RIGGED – Angel Vivaldi’s “Touring You Apart” Rig

Angel Vivaldi is a leader in the melodic instrumental shred scene, and to date our only repeat offender for Rigged! It was more than a year ago that we profiled his setup for recording and live shows, but now he has embarked on his first full-fledged tour, entitled Touring You Apart, so we needed to check in again and see what he’s playing these days.


Be sure to go see his incendiary, tasteful shred when he comes by your town on tour, and until then, jam out to his masterful Away With Words Pt. 1.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
