Lucio Antonio Carbone

The long wait for the arrival of the first of many Italian Luthiers that I met in Rome is over, as Lucio is the first to arrive and it is spectacular.  So very happy.  Visually stunning, the first touch of the strings brought me right back to Rome, as I remembered the power and the voice of Lucio’s guitar.  Traditional in total, it is amazing the power these men can create in a guitar, while maintaining a musicality that is downright enviable.



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 – 180707-2018 Lucio Antonio Carbone Spruce Ziricote – the guitar is an angel.  Crystaline in the high end, powerful and blooming in the low.  Superb!
