Description

This guitar is an absolute pleasure to play; from the first note one plays she sings out with an uplifting clarity.

Well balanced, the Sembdner produces a smooth, bright tone with an unanticipated intensity that projects very clearly, and in particular the trebles cut through with a soaring clarity that then expands to fill the space one is playing in. Her bass and middle frequencies retain this clarity producing a full-bodied sound. As a result, it is easy to “be musical” with the Sembdner as she is so expressive when playing multiple melodic lines.

The Sembdners expansive volume is almost enthusiastic and when playing a fast-paced piece such as Mertz’s Tarantelle she responds with so much energy; it encourages one to push the boundaries of musicality and she still keeps on giving. With this in mind, it was pleasantly surprising to learn how well she does mellow and warm. In “Birds” by Gary Ryan every melody rings out and compliments each other, but what really makes the Sembdner stand out is the intimacy she brings to the piece. It seems that whatever feature of the music you wish to bring out, she amplifies it 100%.

The Sembdner certainly looks the part, there is a lovely contrast between the darker brown neck and back with its stunning grain and the creamy spruce top. She is sleek and slender.

As a concert guitar, the Sembdner has been played in extremely well and particularly for the price, is worth her weight in gold. She will consistently perform well in concert spaces small and large and is a good concert guitar for anyone wanting to develop their playing.
