Electro-acoustic guitar: features of choice
The choice of an electro acoustic guitar isA responsible business that requires a serious approach. First, the musical genre influences the use of the instrument. Thus, performers of flamenco or romances will need a classical electro-acoustic guitar, while rock-n-rollers and bluesmen will choose devices such as "jumbo" or "western".
Going to the store of musical instruments,it is necessary to clearly understand the purpose of acquiring the equipment. If the instrument is purchased for the first time, then perhaps the best choice will be a classic on synthetic strings - it will be easier to learn how to play. That's why classical (not electroacoustic) guitar is used in music schools.
The usual guitar, the birthplace of which is Spain,has a characteristic body, which is manufactured according to the same standards for all manufacturers. The quality of the instrument's sound depends on the material. Only a device with a deck made of wood, is able to fully reveal its potential.
If the standard "Spaniard" is equipped with a timbreach, it will change its status as a result of this procedure.It can be said that electro-acoustic guitarsappeared after performing this operation. True, apart from the instrument is a plastic case, for example, invented in the last century, the guitar Ovation.
When connected, this devicemany characteristics of a different acoustics, but it has a muffled live sound. The original American electric guitar Ovation company has (in contrast to the Korean-Chinese counterparts) quite high cost.
However, do not discount the Asiantool. Of course, the famous guitar Fender and Gibson of Chinese production does not equal the sound with the original, but the price is their main advantage. In the Russian market, the electro-acoustic guitar Martinez is popular in its price segment, which has a good sound and an optimal ratio in terms of price-quality parameters.
Having defined the model of the instrument, it is necessaryIt is worth trying out the device, and it is desirable to do it in the store (this possibility should be provided). Often happens that the guitar starts to rattle. To check this, you should pull the strings, holding them in turn in each of the modes.
You also need to look at the thickness of the stringsproducts. Electroacoustic guitars of the "western" model should have strings from 0.12 or 0.13 mm in diameter. Thin "threads" can make even expensive copies clatter.
If the sound is all right, then you needInspect the enclosure for cracks, chips and other damage. If an electroacoustic guitar "with experience" got caught, then it is possible not to pay attention to small abrasions. And professional musicians confirm that a good instrument can not be "younger" than 10 years. To work in the studio you can buy a relatively inexpensive electro acoustic guitar of the brand Ovation, which is produced by the Korean branch of the manufacturer.
