PewDiePie’s Recording Equipment Set-Up

Felix Kjellberg aka ‘PewDiePie’ is a Swedish YouTuber and gamer based in the UK. PewDiePie was born in Gothenburg, Sweden where he pursued a degree in industrial economics and technology management but dropped out to pursue a full-time YouTube career just a year after he created his YouTube account. His parents disagreed with his decision and did not support him financially so PewDiePie started working at a hot dog stand to fund his videos. In 2012, only one year after dropping out, PewDiePie reached 1 million subscribers on YouTube.

On 15 August 2013 PewDiePie’s channel became the most subscribed channel on YouTube for the first time. After being briefly surpassed by YouTube’s Spotlight channel he reclaimed the position on 22 december 2013. PewDiePie has held that position ever since and also became the most viewed channel of all time in July 2014.
