Richard Bruné 1978 Ramirez Cedar CSA

Comments: This is another excellent example of Richard’s work (turns out Richard is an excellent luthier, go figure? LOL), priced accordingly due to its age, yet surprisingly in very good condition.  No structural issues whatsoever, only evidencing honest playing wear in and around the rosette, with 2 small dings on either side of the larger bout (see photos).  It also recently setup by Richard himself, one of the best in the business.  She plays more easily than you might think.

The guitar plays beautifully.  The sound is big, loud and clear.  Richard brings his guitars to the forefront of what is truly special in a classical guitar, as evidenced by the numerous well known players using his guitars.

Newly strung with Savage Classical Guitar High Tension strings, I found the fatness of the overall sound more pleasing, instead of a thinner, more high pitched string, which I feel would be too piercing, especially in the 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 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 – 180129-brune-1978-ramirez – a bit of sketch #6 and Gamma di Preludio to explore the various ranges of the guitar.  Recorded almost flat (very little reverb), it helps to hear the true character of the guitar.  What a fabulous guitar.  Singing highs with bloom in the basses and a direct voicing of the mids.  Beautiful balance throughout.
