  • Comments:

    These double-top guitars of Antonius (Toni) Müller have become much sought-after in recent years; many by professional performers. They have become known for the volume to be expected from modern construction instruments combined with a more subtle tone range than many.
    This particular one is very fine. The air resonance lies between F and F# which brings about a deep, rich, but not over-powering bass combined with a treble that is strong, well-sustaining and with a rounded, warm yet clear tone. All very impressive and justifying why so many professionals seek them out.
    The waiting time for these guitar is now many years.
