Our classical luthiers guitars videos: compare “DEUX A DEUX” Two by Two
You will notice as well that we shoot some new comparative videos against – all the guitar against a Jose Ramirez 1a guitar.
Explanations: because we explained so many times what are the differences between lattice or DT versus traditional, we have decided to shoot for all our new guitar a comparative video (sorry for those who were considering buying the Ramirez – that will surely question your dream maybe). We choose as a benchmark a Jose Ramirez 1a because mostly this guitar is one of the most famous classical guitar which is a landmark and a reference as guitar sound is concerned. The Ramirez can be found in the whole world that is raised once more our attention.
In the video, we choose the show you :
– a small melody with an arpegio to show the overall sound volume and color and the balance
-some chords to have an idea of the string separation (not so easy to hear)
– some basses of course
– and finally the sustain& overall overtones of the guitar (overtones are here to add note duration one the notes are off)
Hope you will enjoy !
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.
Do not hesitate to contact us to ask us to compare other classical guitars.
