Maton Guitars EMD6 Mini Diesel - 15114
Maton EMD6 Mini Diesel
The Mini Maton Diesel 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 "AA" grade Sitka Spruce top with Victorian Blackwood back and sides, and AP5-Pro pickup system with Grover machine heads. This is the same model that Keith Urban plays!
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 Spruce over Blackwood construction produces a full range of tonal character, blending frequencies comparable to a full sized 808 Model.
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.
