We had the chance to list in December the most sought concert guitars coming from Australia, a brand-new Jim Redgate lattice, a brand-new spruce top Simon Marty and a fantastic 2004 Greg Smallman and sons. We had to make a small comparison video. They are offering a full and marvelouse sounds. .. For those who still think that lattice guitars cannot compete with traditional guitars!
- Brand new Simon Marty from 2023 with a spruce top
If you list all the concertist players who play with one of those guitars you will propably a lot of players. These 3 guitars are amazing and we got the chance to list every year a Jim Redgate and a Simon Marty. They are not out of reach from players, you just have to hold them in advance. The next Redgate available is for 2025 as for the next Simon Marty.
We will receive next week a brand new Andreas Madimenos.
We have made a few comparative classical guitar videos but we use them sparingly because each classical guitar has its strengths and weak points and the videos only put forward the sound for the listener and not what the musician could feel. Philippe strives to show the whole sound palette that each instrument can offer. Comparing two classical guitars only on the sound characteristics is to disregard the comfort of play and the capacity of the instrument to sublimate the musical intentions of each guitarist. The most beautiful palette of colours will not deliver a beautiful picture without the art of the painter and his brush stroke. Comparing classical guitar “deux a deux” means putting emphasis on differences and obliging the listener to choose. A rich method of teaching to ‘educate’ his ear knowing that the final choice will be based on a series of compromises to seek the right balance in sound colours.
