Pablo Kahayan was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
From a very young age, he was attracted to electronics and technology as much as he was to music – which led him to study both guitar and electronics.
He studied electronics at the John XXIII Institute in Buenos Aires, where the Director of Studies and several of his teachers were musicians. The electric guitar and the amplifiers were a starting point of two worlds.
Pablo started building his own guitar amps and effects pedals, while combining his academic studies with electronics repair work and manufacturing sound gear with his uncle.
As his work in the field of audio was rapidly growing, he left his university studies after three years to focus on the world of audio.
During this time Pablo did some work for Hewlett Packard Technical Services in Buenos Aires, which provided him with some income while allowing him to develop his skills with both electronics and audio.
In 1990, Pablo travelled to Europe and was enchanted by Spain.
A year later he set up shop in Madrid, first working with computers and soon after becoming a partner in a music school. Pablo started repairing and modifying amplifiers and instruments, and then to manufacture his own pro-audio equipment. Pablo’s fascination with the tone and sound of classic equipment leads him to start using components found in such vintage manufacturers like Telefunken, Neumann, Neve, Pultec etc.
To this day Pablo continues to focus on the customization, manufacture and repair of equipment for guitarists and bassists, as well as designing and building his own unique line of tube amps and pro-audio gear.
