2006 Kenneth Brogger Torres SE144 Spruce Cypress

Comments:

A superior voice in an easily played classical guitar, Kenneth is clearly quite good at what he does.  I’ve spoken with him a few times, he’s an extremely nice man.

The instrument is a specialty of Kenneth’s being a near exact or “bench” copy of the 2nd Epoch Torres known as SE144.  His ownership of the guitar allowed him the space and time to fine tune his own measurements and all of that which makes a historic Torres guitar unique.  Dimensions, proportions, measurements, thicknesses, etc. all documented, then engineered to Kenneth’s preferences.  Turns out he did pretty darned good.  The guitar is spectacular.

I found the guitar well balanced, with clarity, gorgeous projection, and easily played with a superb setup.  A warm, yet bright affect, Torres-like in her voices, becoming angelic, with a bloom in the basses, and a drive in the mids.  Exactly what you want.

Kenneth’s guitars will sell for in and around $14K.  The guitar is in very good condition, with evident and honest play wear evident along the top.  I will photograph all quadrants of the guitar for your convenience.

The guitar is priced well below what we should ask.  No worries, happy to help.

Media

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

Please note that dust is an issue of late, especially with 5 humidifiers running within my gallery space.  We do our best to wipe things down between each shot, but the dust can be pervasive as a result of the humidity issues required in this colder, dryer weather.  I also run air purifiers within the space.  It does not help that much.  I have to say this out loud as I do not edit the photos.  There is full transparency here, as always, in my discussions, photos, recordings, etc.  It is never about tricking any of you.  It is about absolute and full disclosure so that you know exactly what you are looking at any time you visit my gallery or my site.

MP3 Audio240220-2006 Kenneth Brogger Torres SE144 Spruce Cypress – this is a superb classical guitar, with a voice that is clear, blooming in the basses, driven in the mids, while singing in the trebles.  Well setup by myself, easily played.  Excellent work by the Danish Master Luthier, clean lines, elegant in her presentation.  A guitar I could personally play all day.
