  • Comments:

    Stephen Eden has really found his stride producing consistently persuasive instruments that work very well in all departments - they have depth, good balance, clear rounded treble, plenty of volume and good playing comfort. This short scale version has surprising strength, a rich bass combined with a sweet singing treble and plenty of performance power, despite the shorter scale length which offers such ease of playability. In fact the sound is so much the same as a 65cm scale that one wonders why the shorter scale, easy play is not standard!
    These are professional standard performance instruments at very reasonable price.
