Esteve 9F Spruce Cypress Flamenco
Quick, raspy, easy to play with that authentic Cypress flamenco character, a Blanca through and through.
The price includes a Humicase Protege Black HSC
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 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 – 201215-Esteve 9F Spruce Cypress Flamenco – a great little Blanca, plays fast and furiously. I’m the farthest thing from a Flamenco player, but I gave it a small whirl. I played Prelude #15 in C Major, a little Carcassi, and some other small samples of music.
My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
Premium HSC is included in your purchase price.
