Maton Guitars ER90C Dreadnought Cutaway - 16705


Maton Guitars ER90C Dreadnought Cutaway - 16705

Originally made for the USA market, now re-imagined for the world stage. The Maton ER90C fits well in ensemble as a rhythm guitar or out front for solo runs... A real workhorse!

Players looking for a full, rich sounding guitar with overtones and natural reverb will love how the Sitka / Rosewood combo allows the ER90C to respond to finger picking as well as heavy flat picking. In a word - VERSATILE for all types of performance and songwriting.

Not many builders offer a full sized dreadnought with a cutaway option, though Maton has been listening to performers longer than most guitar luthiers. They understand player's needs and build the quality tools to support their music.

The Maton AP5-Pro Electronics

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 pre-amp.

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 pre-amp 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 600Hz to 2.4kHz 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.
