Valentim Carlos Gomes is a very Brazilian luthier making Daniel Friederich and Herman Hauser replicas. Here is an amazing Herman Hauser replica which is surely one of the sweetest traditional guitars that we ever played. The guitar is super light and offers crystalline and pure trebles supported by direct and spontaneous basses which are pretty deep. As a result, the guitar is sweet with a great balance between the basses and the trebles, the sustain is amazing and the overall sound is clear and deep. There is something magic in the sound and we have to thank Valentim to be able to recreate that magical sound.
The Hauser family (3 generations and soon 4) have been a major contributor to the classical guitar lutherie. Andres Segovia played from 1938 up to 1962 on a Herman Hauser. The tradition has been maintained by Herman Hauser II (1991- 1988) and continue since 1974 with Herman Hauser III who is working with his daughter, Katrin.
The first impression when playing the guitar is the immediate direct response. The guitar is super light and it is a real pleasure to feel the sound jumping of the guitar. Then the crystal tone color of the trebles supported by solid overtones. Valentim chooses only first-class material and he is following the wood thickness, bracing designs, material choices, wood grains, and vibration patterns of the original Hauser.
