Stefan Herkenhoff is the Bass Player for the German symphonic metal powerhouse "Beyond The Black" and also lead guitar player for the female fronted band "Aeranea". Known for his energetic stage presence and precise 3-finger picking technique on bass, the collaboration with Ibanez came very naturally, especially after he first played his main bass - the Ibanez SRFF805 - which was an instant and perfect fit. Also relying on the SR655 5-String for live use, as well as various other guitars and basses for his own recording studio "Tones and Tunes Studios", Stefan is a proud and happy endorser and part of the Ibanez family.
