Description

Well, after playing the Model Especial I really wasn't sure what to expect with the Royal or how the feel and sound could be improved.

Now I have to admit, the first touch of the strings convinced me that the stunning look of this guitar would be more than matched by its voice, and after half an hour I was becoming more and more excited as I explored different repertoire.

The Royal has as much sound and power as you would ever need yet is not overwhelmed by this and retains the beautiful subtle singing voice that helped us all fall in love with the classical guitar so many years ago.

The vocal colour is foremost and with so much variety available that it is difficult to give the sound one word.

The inner strings are wonderfully rich adding character and depth to the overall sound without losing clarity, leading to full close position chords where every voice can be heard.

As a player you have a free reign to try any sound and soon realise she will respond with exactly what you "heard" before playing.

There is an ease in articulation that brings out the colouring of individual notes and a dynamic range that just goes on and on.

This huge sound can be a bit daunting until you bring things down to a whisper and recognise the exquisite nature of the bell like trebles and a bass that you just sink into ......

I couldn't stop playing the first phrase of Bach's 1st Cello suite!!

In conclusion ----- balance and poise, clarity and excitement, drama and passion.

Fantastic Fun!

Paulino says that a World class concert instrument should have Power and Projection, suitable for modern concert halls, while still maintaining the other characteristics of a superlative musical instrument - Balance, Sustain, Lyricism, Refinement and Beauty of sound - The Royal model has all of these qualities.
