Maton EBW808 Solid All-Blackwood

Simplicity and purity of tone lay at the heart of the Blackwood range of Guitars. Pure Blackwood tone -clear, bright trebles, strong mid range and full bass. The All-Blackwood construction produces a unique compression, blending frequencies into a new, unique voice.

Victorian Blackwood is in the acacia family, with a surface hardness on par to its sister wood Koa which grows in Hawaii. It provides excellent projection, while the density (specific gravity) is slightly higher offering a warmer bass register than Koa.

The proprietary Maton "808" body shape is similar, though slightly smaller that the US OM Model. However, the body depth of the 808 is substantially deeper at 4-7/8". This is significant, as moving the top and back further apart enhances the bass element within the tonal character of the voicing (bracing technique), complimenting the different wood combinations

In its 5th generation, the AP5 Pro features an internal Microphone and 6-Piezo bridge input, with controls that allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through the well engineered preamp.

The highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments. This upgraded AP5-Pro microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing with an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artist's playing style.

Using the ‘Sweep-able Mid’ controls. Mid-range is sweep-able from 1 to 2khz and can be cut or boosted within this range. As a general rule we start out with all settings ‘flat’ then alter them to achieve the desired tone & presence based on the venue or recording environment. For example, an open, natural sound can be achieved by setting the frequency control at 1.4khz and the boost/cut control at 5db. Alternatively, for a ‘thick’ lead sound boost your mid's by 5db and set the frequency dial at 1.7kh.
