Comments

John Price builds a superb classical guitar with a musical voice, power and resonance.  The guitar is very active, bold, forceful and clear in all registers.  Playing this guitar and her sister, #376 a Spruce with the same woods, I was completely taken with the voice and the sheer power.  Golpe installed on the top for protection.

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

MP3 Audio – 190404-2018 John Price #379 Cedar Tasmanian Myrtle – big and beautiful sound out of this gorgeous guitar.  Easily played, I found it an easy matter to drive the guitar, basses pushing nicely, full and round, with great color from the highs.   A real pleasure to have this guitar and its like in the gallery.
