Neo-classical - sound samples

This neo-classical guitar (my "workshop classical", as in the one usually covered in dust!) has a western red cedar top, with Indian rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard and ultra-low mass bridge.  It is braced in the falcate style with a live back.  It features mass loaded sides and has nut and saddle compensation for its mix of Hannabach and Savarez strings.

The remarkably versatile Matt Semmens can be heard here playing his arrangement of Roland Dyen's "Tango en Skai", (2.6Mb of MP3) and here the rather eclectic "Farruca" (2.4Mb of MP3), a great piece if you want to put a guitar through its paces.

Matt recorded the guitar using a pair of large diaphragm condenser mics, one placed about three feet from the lower bout at about 45 degrees to the butt of the guitar, the other a little squarer to the lower bout.  There are no effects (definitely no compression other than what MP3 tends to do, like it or not, so don't be shy with the volume control) and no equalisation.
