Description

Greg Smallman has been one of the top innovators in the Classical guitar building world for many years. Although his instruments may not seem all that different from the norm on the outside, strike one note and you will know straight away that something very different is happening beneath your fingertips. This 1995 Smallman Concert model in Brazilian Rosewood and Cedar is unlike any classical guitar we have ever played. It is exceptionally loud--even without having to drive it hard, this guitar will genuinely fill up a room with profound and complex tones. It maintains a beautiful and lush voice at full volume with no distortion or tubbiness to be found anywhere. Greg has achieved this sound by making radical changes to the inner structure of the guitar, utilizing lattice bracing and carbon fiber combined with an incredibly thin top plate. The Smallman guitar is so special in fact that Legendary concert performer John Williams has used a Smallman guitar for a large part of his performing career. This is a life-changing guitar that will make a perfect instrument for the concert perfomer.

"All the guitars at Dream Guitars are special and unique. Occasionally, a guitar lands here that is truly outstanding. The 1995 Greg Smallman is one such guitar. It has exceptional volume, power, balance and clarity. When I played this guitar, the sound seemed to congeal a few feet in front of the instrument and just hang there--for a really long time. The clarity and balance of each note within a chord is palpable, and the the notes just leap out of the instrument. The magic of this guitar is truly something to behold." - David Stevenson

There is no doubt that this is one of the loudest classical guitars I have ever played, it will blow hats off. I have always heard John Williams talk about how strong his Smallman guitar is, but it is hard to really understand what he is talking about until you get the chance to play one in person. Man is he right. This is the ultimate performance tool, I have no doubt that you will be able to fill up a concert hall with beautiful tone with this instrument.
