Maton EMBW6 Blackwood Mini
The Mini Maton EMBW Model is a small bodied travel size guitar with a very big voice. Smaller than a standard OM, this guitar packs a punch well above its weight.. This model Maton Mini features an "A" grade Blackwood top, back and sides, AP5-Pro pickup system and Grover machine heads. The Mini Maton could be just what your collection has been missing.
One of the most visually stunning timbers available, Blackwood has also become an important tonewood. Most of the Blackwood comes from the Otway Ranges in Victoria, Australia. It often displays "fiddleback" character and "AAA" grade Blackwood can be intensely figured.
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.
Active artists using their Maton Mini for live performance include Leaving Lennox, Carl Wockner, and Keith Urban!
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.
