Having been trained initially by Enrico Bottelli in Voghera, Daniele Marrabello very quickly grasped not only the technical essentials of quality guitar making but also absorbed the same drive for the highest standards of workmanship, finish and consistent quality of sound.
With very much in common with the Enrico Bottelli design, these guitars have a very pleasing balance combining a singing, rounded treble including an excellent 3rd string, a sonorous middle and depth of bass that very crisp when you want it to be; rich and velvety when wanted and not overpowering. The range of available tone colour makes it suitable for every genre of repertoire and the playing comfort is notable.
The 64cm scale adds playing ease and comfort for those struggling with stretches, but with no loss of power or timbre.
We are delighted to have introduced this Italian maker to our range and find their high quality and modest price prove very popular.
