- Glenn Hetrick and his team created a custom instrument (EMMA) for Lady Gaga used at the 2010 BRIT Awards during a remix of "Dance in the Dark" after an acoustic version of "Telephone". The instrument was also used during the revamped Monster Ball Tour during the performance of "The Fame." The instrument is composed of a bass guitar, a two octave keyboard, and an Akai MPC1000 sampler with a violin-like scroll and extra decorations.
