27 Acoustic Guitars Tried and Tested

Whenever you choose a guitar you might first fall in love with appearances, but also, and above all, you cherish its sound character. Six-string fans sometimes don’t have the opportunity to listen to many instruments under good conditions. AudioFanzine is well aware of that and decided to record 27 guitars using first-class gear…

Welcome to the big acoustic demo trial-a-thon!  Thanks to your favorite website (that’s Audiofanzine of course 😉 , you can now listen to 27 acoustic guitars played in finger picking style and with a pick: from the most prestigious instruments to the most affordable, all body shapes, famous and renowned models as well as runner-ups.

Everything was recorded and filmed at the facilities of the “Rock & Chanson” music school. We used a pair of DPA 4011 (cardioid, large-diaphragm condenser) microphones, one pointing to the 12th fret and the second one to the bridge, plus a DPA 4006 (omnidirectional, large-diaphragm condenser) microphone as room mic. Both DPA 4011s were connected to an MP-2 preamp while the DPA 4006 fed an MP-1 preamp. The audio interface used was an RME FireFace 800. The signal wasn’t EQed or compressed.

Here is the first one of 27:
