Description

 

On first playing this guitar is immediately free and open with an obviously strong and clear voice and wonderful projection of sound without effort for the player.

It also quickly becomes clear that she is an easy guitar to play, in tone production but especially for the left hand giving the player more freedom and spare energy to concentrate on other aspects of playing.

The treble voice is spirited and engaging with a rounded and glossy tone, beautiful sustain and consistency, and quite a sparkle. The response under your fingers is direct and clean and in Canarios by Sanz I found the dance and excitement in the music, always keeping clarity through the quick flow of notes.

The bass is vibrant with plenty of punch and lovely distinct notes. I particularly enjoyed Nocturne by Mertz where there is a bass melody under repeated chords.

Playing on this guitar the melody really stood out over a wide range and highlighted the lovely crunchy clashes of melody and harmony.

As I played I found the overall sound very easy to manipulate and also became noticeably more expansive. As I said there is a lot of sound but it is not big and heavy, rather feeling quite light, distinct and direct, pushing the voice forward with lots of detail, texture and colour.

I had great fun with Capricho Arabe with the contrasts between rich and vibrant harmony, sweet and rousing melodic lines, and a big dynamic range combining to add real drama to the music.

The ease and freedom of tone and playability here really encourage her player to experiment with and develop musicianship. You do not have to be an expert player to get these results and it is great to be able to hear the evolving sound of a concert guitar.

This guitar has a secure, substantial and consistent base of sound from which to start your musical adventure, with a character highlighting zest and sparkle while always maintaining ample, well rounded and firm tone. Great fun!
