CiocanelBloodyCIocanel Posted January 28, 2017 Share Posted January 28, 2017 http://www.leonardo-guitar-research.com/research-report-lgrp Desigur, parerea mea e ca daca pui un corp de ash cu gat de maple si fretboard de maple pe o electrica, tonul va fi absolut diferit fata de o chitara all rosewood (corp gat si fretboard). Dar studiul arata ca si ciresul face chitare bune, totul e sa il prelucreze un profesionist. • ABSTRACTResearch Objective:A comparative study of the sound preferences between guitars made fromtropical woods, and guitars made from non-tropical woods. Organized tests:Blind and Non-Blind playing and listening tests by1) Guitarist/Listener (3 sessions)2) Public Audience (2 sessions) Tested guitars:- 10 classical guitars made from non-tropical woods- 5 classical guitars made from tropical woods - All guitars of the same model: Torres FE19- All guitars of the same high quality standard- All tops made out of european spruce of the same quality and the same bracing pattern. Testing period:March > July 2014 ResultsAll blind tests show that guitars made from non-tropical wood species were equally preferred for sound quality as those made from tropical wood.Non-blind tests show a strong fallback in sound appreciation experienced by non tropical wood guitars. ConclusionsThe need for the use of tropical wood in acoustic and classical guitar building seems to be a myth becauseblind tests have clearly indicated that non-tropical woods can be used to make guitars whose tonal quality is equal to that of their tropical counterparts.The fallback in sound appreciation experienced bynon-tropical wood guitars in the non-blind tests, strongly suggests that preference is heavily influenced bypreconceptions about what guitars should look like and about what exactly constitutes a tonewood. http://www.leonardo-guitar-research.com/research-report-lgrp una avea chiar fretboard din lemn de mar 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
