Martin DC-35E
278_Martin-DC-35E.jpg

A Classic. 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.

Martin 000-15M
285_Martin-000-15m.jpg

Martin DCPA5K
289_Martin-DCPA5K.jpg

The DCPA5K is one of Martin's most affordable Preforming Artist Series. It features a beautiful koa patterned high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides in combination with solid sitka spruce.What is HPL you ask?One day, while walking through the factory, Chris Martin saw the bits and pieces of leftovers from cutting wood and realised it can be utilised to something good.This evolved to the HPL which is used on the this guitar.HPL is light, cost effective and most important, sounds different and nice. Combined with a solid Spruce top, X-1 bracing and the vast experience and quality of Martin's craftsmanship, the DCPA5K is a very lively, natural sounding guitar with a lot of power and loudness.A key feature making the Martin DCPA5K a great performing guitar is the Fishman F-1 pickup system it comes with. It is such a simple pickup to use and the result is great with no hassle.Also the tuner comes handy and reacts fast when in use. 

Martin D-16RGT

If you search for a guitar with slightly more body and woody tone we suggest checking out the Martin D-16GT. It is essentially the same model only with Mahogany back and sides.

Martin D-18

The Mahogany sister. Less expensive than the iconic D-28 but definitely not cheaper or less wonderful.The D-18 has the benefit of being a warm and deep sounding mahogany guitar with the fast reaction of a spruce top one. It is not an eye catcher in comparison to some other Martin guitars, but as always with guitars, looks can be deceiving.It features a sleek, modern High Performance Neck which makes it comfortable to play and as it is a mahogany guitar, it is lighter than her rosewood sisters.

Martin DX1AE

Thinking forward. The X series by Martin is a more affordable series of guitars from a well renowned maker.What does that mean? It means you get something good for your money.One day, while walking through the factory, Chris Martin saw the bits and pieces of leftovers from cutting wood and realised it can be utilised to something good.This evolved to the HPL which is used on the X series.HPL is light, cost effective and most important, sounds different and nice. Combined with a solid Spruce top, X-1 bracing and the vast experience and quality of Martin's craftsmanship, the DX1AE is a very natural sounding guitar. Not as big as a solid wood Martin, but this "Martin sound" is still there.The DX1AE is dry, it does not have much of sustain compared to other more expensive Martin guitars. The guitar projects a lot of mid range and tight lows, it does not ring a lot, but it is exactly what we like about it! It does not sound fancy, it sounds natural.
