My favourite thing doing this review was listening to the way that the guitar responded to my playing, gradually opening out and reacting to the different qualities of the pieces that I was playing.

This is of course an important feature of a new spruce top and reflects the potential that is within the instrument. She has a clear and balanced tone with rounded and pure notes across the strings and, overall, a very natural sound. General clarity and focus give the player full and strong notes, easily bringing out detail and colour making this guitar excellent value for money, an instrument that can develop your musicality because you can hear more in her voice.

I am learning several of Tarrega’s smaller pieces at the moment and with this guitar I found that I was able to achieve the drama, character and texture needed for this music as the clarity and balance of the strings helped me to control and contrast the tone with clear and precise articulation and direct projection. The voicing was clear with very good response to slurs and slides, and the confidence of her voice, that is ‘solidity’ of sound helped to highlight the strong rhythmical nature of the pieces. She retained quality in the upper registers and the potential for growth here was clear.

I really like the mellow and honeyed character of the guitar combined with very clear definition. This gives a golden light to the treble voice in particular and, in Andante Largo by Sor, a beautiful, sweet and singing tone to the melodic line in thirds with excellent separation and plenty of attack and volume when asked for. I have described the dolce and rounded character of the guitar but the definition of notes is also key here and this was most obvious in Tonadilla by Emilio Pujol.

This piece has a strong pulse and driving rhythm, highlighting off beat accents, staccato and quick fluid movement around the fingerboard and then contrasting this with long, full and flowing melodies moving between voices, supported by full and rich harmony. The guitar responded beautifully to this with the warmth and resonance of her voice giving body and her clarity helping to drive the rhythms. I believe that this instrument has a promising future and that her attributes far outweigh her price tag. She has a voice that the player can control and build on. As I played the sound was audibly filling and growing in depth. The voicing is clear and direct and she already has a very good range of colour and sonority.

She offers an excellent opportunity for a player to start to push their boundaries, to communicate more through their music making and to take their performance to the next level.
