Gernot Kögel

"Siggi Jaeger's Instruments completely satisfies my ideals of sound. Their responsiveness is sensitive, with a balanced sound in all positions while adapting smoothly and full of character to different styles of music.  The sound engineers I work with appreciate these qualities and characteristics as much as I do.
I'm very grateful that my friend and colleague Christoph Herder introduced me to these great Instruments.
With Siggi Jaeger I feel in very good hands - on a professional as well as on a personal HUMAN base(is)."

Gernot Kögel about Human Base Instruments

Gernot Koegel was born in 1973 in Kaiserslautern, Germany.  During his youth, he took lessons at the local music store, studying with private teachers in many instruments including flute, drums, cello, jazz vocals, jazz piano and guitar, before choosing the bass as his main instrument. 
During these lessons, he continuously made new experiences working with different ensembles like choirs, orchestras, bands, and drama groups etc.

In 1995 he went on to study Jazz & Pop music with an emphasis on electric bass at the University for Music and Performing Arts Mannheim / Heidelberg.  During his time at the university  he had lessons and workshops with Dave King, Patrick Scales, Thomas Stabenow, Matt Garrisson, and Julio Barbosa.

He is currently performing with many different bands and projects both nationally and internationally (Sweden, Norway, England, Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Austria, Turkey, Australia, Malaysia, Dubai, Armenia, and Azerbaijan).  He is also an experienced recording artist and can be heard on many different recordings.  In addition, he produces and composes music for film and advertisement, cooperating with different studios such as 5A Studios in London.  His experience as an arranger and producer is extensive, with projects ranging from play along lesson books for beginners to music for cartoon films.

He has fifteen years experience as a private teacher, clinician and band leader, and is currently teaching at Music School Lampertheim.
