Martin takes it’s classic D-35 guitar and turns it to a stage beast to the professional working guitar player. Meet the DC-35E.
Much like on the D-35, you’ll find solid sitka spruce and east Indian mahogany on the Martin DC-35E, only the latter has a cutaway and an innovative pickup system by Fishman called “Aura VT Enhance”.
You’ll find all that you expect in this great guitar. It is punchy and full sounding with a beautiful top end and overtones.
From top to bottom, this instrument is beautifully made, but what got us really startled is the new Fishman Aura pickup it comes with.
As a pickup, it is a good sounding, easy to use 1 tone knob pickup. But what’s making it a serious add to an already great guitar is the new Enhance option.
When activating the Enhance option, an additional transducer is coming into play and capturing energy of the guitar top while resisting the transverse energy that manifests in string squeak, body handling noise, and parasitic feedback. In simple words – every percussive beat and overtone you will play will shine like a star.
