  1. Review by Patrick C.

    Santiago gave me that classic guitar sound with nylon strings I was looking for, and made the part come alive. I can very much recommend him!

  2. Review by Alejandro / SCHUSTERDRUMS

    Santiago did a perfect job on two of my songs. He was really professional and did exactly what I was looking for the songs! I highly recomend him If you need some acoustic or electric guitars. He also has really pro gear and cared a lot finding the right sound for each song.
