Here are some more information on Martin Blackwell guitars:
We just received a new Double-top from Martin Blackwell : the n° 151 is using , as the latest No. 141 that we had, balsa instead of Nomex like the new Matthias Dammann. The results is amazing, the same thickness, the same loudness but with a little bit of brightness in the notes. This double-top produces fat and creamy notes and as well a long sustain with huge overtones, the sustain is long. A must.
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.”
