Description

 

From the very first note this guitar has a great impact, immediately easy to play with compelling, full bodied notes and a real sense of energy and substance.

The treble has a ‘glossy’ character with colours ranging from very deep reds to zesty oranges, in other words a sound with fantastic clarity and balance for brightness and punch combined with intensity, breadth and support for warmth and a more velvet sound.

The bass is simply everything that you would wish for, with wonderful depth and drive produced by direct and focused tone – overall both engaging and exhilarating!

When playing Milonga I loved the clarity and detail within the arpeggios that helped to highlight the clashing harmonies, syncopation and musical expression. The full and rounded brilliance of the treble was much in evidence and choosing lines and individual notes to bring forward seemed effortless.

She really has masses of sound to project, put your foot on the pedal and she keeps giving, even at this early stage.

In Bach’s Cello Suite no.1 I had all the control necessary for the detail and delicacy that I require and so achieved a lovely light and flowing tone, balanced and even notes across the strings and easy shaping of the long phrases and multiple lines. I could hear the treble voice ‘filling’ as I played, building resonance, sustain and support and clearly demonstrating it’s huge potential.

Lough Caragh by Gary Ryan is a beautiful and atmospheric piece of music and so an excellent test for a guitar! This guitar rose to the challenge giving me rich, smooth and velvet bass notes, a voice for the listener to get lost in, and a graceful and engaging treble sound that easily maintained quality and emotional response as the music moved around the fingerboard.

It was easy to clearly project the voices through the ‘campanella’ resonance showing me that the sound has a true essence and the lovely combination of focused sound and a warm, rich overall voice.

The first word that I used in the description of this guitar was impact. By this I meant the presence and impression of her sound being unavoidable. She is an emotional and musical guitar and so far I have used that sort of music to review the sound so I wanted to finish with the outgoing side to her character.

Fantasie on Themes from La Traviata by Tarrega is a fantastic piece that leaps from one emotion to the next, rich to sparkling, charming to thrilling, vivid and ‘showy’ to wistful and reflective. Through this guitar I managed all of this with ease. The trebles can be vivid and brilliant with plenty of attack with one stroke and then immediate soft and gentle with a creamy full voice. The bass is wonderful especially with the D tuning and gave me drive and punch one minute and body and sonority the next. Great fun!

In reading this review back I have realized that I could sum things up pretty quickly.

She has a big and beautiful voice that is emotional and overall colourful, giving you the chance to express all of your musical emotions with all the control and support that you need.
