2023 Jean Rompre #172 Cedar EIRW
The beautiful Jean Rompré classical guitar has arrived. It is always a special day when I receive one of Jean’s guitars.
There is a natural wood Tornavoz within the soundhole (see photos). A naturally elevated fretboard highlights playability. The sculpted relief on the headstock, front and back, is always an added artistic touch. The Custom Rodgers machines built exclusively for Jean (his own model built by Rodgers for him) are an elegant addition.
The power of this guitar is extraordinary. Her sensitivity is equal.
She looks great, is quite heavy and plays like a dream. One of the most musical luthiers displays his knowledge well in this guitar. She is an angel, a powerful angel. She comes with additional saddles (in a tube within the case compartment) to compensate the action as you desire. Thoughtful.
The guitar is impressive, as always. This is part of a trio of guitars built, sisters if you will, of which one has gone to the incredible Gohar Vardanyan.
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 – Coming Soon! – Sometimes, you just gotta go “Huh” in your head. Guitar is so impressive, very powerful, yet evocative at the slightest touch. Setup to a moderate height, she’s made to be driven with little to no break in her voices. The guitar feels great in your hands, it exudes confidence in your ability to play her.
