2014 Jochen Rothel Spruce EIRW Classical Guitar


The guitar has just arrived.  She’s a beauty.  In superb condition, very well cared for, just a hint of a few slight nail marks in and around the rosette.  The guitar is incredibly active, resonant, simply alive in your hands and against your body.  There aren’t enough superlatives regarding her play, workmanship, sound, depth and crystalline trebles.



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 – 210106-2014 Jochen Rothel Spruce EIRW – Zounds!  Amazing guitar.  I sort of ramble a bit on the recording, but hopefully you can feel and hear the guitar.  She’s incredible.
