Oli Knight, a PMT Expert

Your favourite gear that you constantly use?
My Fender Jagstang and Peavey Valveking 100, picked both up secondhand and have modded them both in various ways, they're covered in stickers and have followed me all over the country on tour.

What was your first instrument?
An Epiphone LP Special II in black, great little guitar that got me through my first year or so of playing.

What are your three favourite brands?
Fender do the electric guitars I enjoy playing most, Blackstar are a great brand to work with in the store as they make great products and are super helpful, same goes for D'Addario. Always ready to answer my questions and always keep us well stocked with great stuff.

Who are three people or bands who have highly influenced you in music?
Depeche Mode got me thinking about songwriting, Nirvana got me playing guitar and Jamie Lenman from Reuben is just a legend and constant source of inspiration.

Do you have any party tricks?
Bringing down the vibe with existential conversations no one asked for.

Favourite all-time film?
Silence of The Lambs.
