ARCHIVE Grand Konzert
Grand Konzert, an innovation for large rooms.
The Grand Konzert's back and sides are made from best Palo Escrito tonewood from Mexico and are complemented by a perfectly cut spruce soundboard made with the finest of wood qualities. A second soundboard made from quality Santos rosewood that floats within the body is responsible for outstanding projection and a fuller sound. The asymmetrically weighted domed soundboard with sevenfold fan bracing optimises this classical guitar's efficiency.
It's particularly its warm and facet-rich timbre, the full sound and the outstanding sound projection that makes the Grand Konzert ideal for ‘big performances’.
The monitor sound hole supports the guitarist's own perception and helps improve the direct audibility and monitoring of the sound.
The pierced rosewood-maple-Macassar head, the exclusive ‘Alessi’ tuning machines and the high-gloss varnished body with soundboard that has been most elaborately hand-polished with shellac round off this instrument both in regard to its look and sound.
