We are proud to introduce in Europe this young master of double-tops. Among the young and talented classical guitar makers from Canada, Martin Blackwell is offering classical guitars with a consistent standard of excellence, found in their depth of tone, balance and playability. His double-tops are very responsive and powerful opening up a great dynamic range with an excellent sustain and wonderful evenness and separation .
Martin Blackwell do not produce double-tops but wonderful classical guitars which happens to be double-tops. When we first contact Martin, here is what he said on this classical guitar making : “my philosophy is to use the double-top technology to basically make a really great traditional sounding guitar. A classical guitar with a more powerful sound, more resonance, more presence. A more complete classical guitar which is a full concert guitar but which also has the subtlety to sound great in the living room as well. I don’t want to get away from the beauty of the traditional tonality. Because of this I know there are other double-tops and lattice classical guitars which are louder than what I am building. The best response which I get consistently from good players is that the guitar just sounds like a really good classical guitar and not necessarily a double top.”
