Maton EMTE Tommy Emmanuel Signature Mini Guitar Sitka Spuce and Queensland Maple ID-12428
The EMTE is a fusion of two of Maton's most successful guitars, the EBG808TE and the Mini Maton EM-6. They have used the same materials that make the EBG808TE such a popular tone machine and applied them to the classic Mini shape. The result is a bright, crisp, lively little guitar that will respond to every nuance of your fingerpicking style as well as deliver a big rhythm sound when used with a flat pick.
The addition of the AP5-Pro pickup system makes the EMTE a formidable stage guitar as well, with the added benefit of staying well clear of those low mid and bass feedback frequencies. "When I'm on the road, big ideas can come from the smallest things." Tommy Emmanuel CGP 2017
Originally used as a Mahogany "substitute", Queensland Maple has become the backbone of the Maton sound. It is used in nearly every Maton either as a neck, back & sides, or internal component. A rainforest hardwood from Northern Queensland, this timber is light, strong, and visually striking.
Queensland Maple is extremely well balanced with an even response across all frequencies. If you are looking for the secret to Maton's great tone, this is a good place to start.
The AP5 Pro now features Separate Microphone and Piezo input controls allow for blending of both microphone and piezo levels prior to sending the actively combined signals through to the tone circuits and master volume. Highly selective cardioid microphone system allows for much greater microphone level before feedback in live environments.
This newly upgraded microphone is direct mounted to the preamp casing via an adjustable arm, which permits easy final tweaking of microphone position to suit the individual artists style.
Includes Hardshell Case.
