    A true globetrotter

    Ovation CC057-HBYPublished on 09/03/14 at 01:16

    Ovation Celebrity 80/90 equipped with a passive piezo. The guitar consists of a 3/4 cutaway hull, table glued spruce and mahogany neck very thin and comfortable. it gives this celebrity lightness, sound and superior comfort and a great versatility. Mine is dark brown finish: no more fancy than that but Smart, who has through the years despite the road.

    UTILIZATION

    This is definitely the best race of all acoustic who have passed through my hands so far. The cutaway provides access to the latest freight, hull delivers a not very powerful (if you play "dry" with boxes full of other folks, maybe they will have to adjust to that you hear about on the beach fire) but the sound is one o…

    UTILIZATION

    This is definitely the best race of all acoustic who have passed through my hands so far. The cutaway provides access to the latest freight, hull delivers a not very powerful (if you play "dry" with boxes full of other folks, maybe they will have to adjust to that you hear about on the beach fire) but the sound is one of the best ever heard: precise, crystalline, in agreement as gimmick.
    Mine has seen 100 times the sea, the mountains, the evenings when it was the inning to messing around on the nights when we fell asleep in the grass, she survived all, a real globe trotter! I had a small vibration problem once inside the box after a trip, but a luthier arranged me very quickly. Michelle Shocked recorded his first album in full at the roadside, just with that!

    SOUNDS

    In 25 years, I've done all kinds of music: mostly folk and blues of course, but also bossa, samba, pop the liking of adventures and encounters. On it I write everything. At registration, the piezo is faithful but very dry: modern folk have better systems I think. For my part, I plug the piezo on the table, I re-balance slightly EQUAL to the sound, but mostly I put a zoom H1 in front of the box. And then it becomes enjoyable: I mix with just a little piezo to keep the attacks, and any projection Ovation is captured: happiness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a great warm and light guitar in all situations and especially when traveling. Great for travel! I never found such a comfortable handle on a folk: It's sad that we can find today, every time I use it, I beg not to be forced to play on another one day.

    My opinion: I play there in increasing the treble and bass very slightly, and it sounds great across the spectrum, light, difficult to play after starting then it's like you get used to everything.

    UTILIZATION

    We obtain are very good facillement it sounds right away.
    it is light;
    cons for each access to treble is difficult but the handle is nice.

    SOUNDS

    It is ideally suited to my style of music
    I played with a pedal compression and distortion (distortion light) if the sound is disgusting and a wah-wah
    it goes well on amps in general

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost 2 years I even abandoned the acoustic guitar for her

    I think its particularity is its sound and we can play receiver as an input line adapts well
    j'avous but not having tried to view another model that gave me.
    jen but am very telling and it still surprises me

    The best is to go on the Ovation website for technical characteristics.
    The main difference is obviously the matter which constitutes the body of the guitar body.
    This is the same material that is used to make helicopter blades!

    UTILIZATION

    The big advantage I find with this guitar is that you keep it very close to the body. For someone who is accustomed to playing with a folk guitar with a body "classic" it may be a bit confusing at first but you get used very quickly.
    To play standing with a strap at the beginning we felt that it slide a bit but is pulled quickly from the fact that the party really close to your body like an electric guitar.

    The neck is really nice, nothing to say on that side. The cutaway allows easy access to the last fret (although folk for solos is not that of y 'better now ...)
    So really agrébale guitar playing!

    SOUNDS

    The main point which we must be careful that the size of the fund. There are different depths. There are "Small", "Medium" and "Jumbo".
    I have a box "Small" and the sounds are very good. What is clear is really a particular grain had to matter. But with a box "Small", it is true that the power of sound is not as strong with a cash or with a conventional "Jumbo". Solicitating for bass, then I think that for many the highlight should be a "Jumbo".
    If it was ç again, I bought the same but with a bigger body.
    Otherwise sound level there is nothing to say, the sound is clear is going very well when amplified.
    There is also an equalizer on the side that allows the sound to properly set on the amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been 4 years since I played with and the only regret I have is do not take cash "Jumbo".
    Otherwise there is nothing to say.
    Major advantages: Excellent playability and sounds unique to Ovation.
    I had paid at the time Fr 2800 (about 400 €), scratching little excessive, so excellent value for money.

    - Ovation Celebrity CC057 (super shallow bowl body = narrow)
    - Manufacturing Korea

    - Mahogany neck / rosewood fingerboard 20 frets
    - Piezo PC-100 + DJ4 preamp (gain + 3-band EQ)

    The guitar is not quite finished: some details left much to be desired (heel of the neck and sleeve junction / head sticker on the preamp to peel, plastic binding that age badly, mechanical change after 2 years soundboard very fine ...) and with time it gets worse! the only thing really is the case in lyrachord ...

    UTILIZATION

    I bought this guitar mail order tried before without telling me a standing ovation even at that price (3000 francs at the time) would be better than nothing (bcp bcp bcp I play more electric) particularly as the press put it on a level Estale: let's be clear I do not question the sound of the beast, but the finish.

    The handle does not suit me at all with his profile fairly marked V ... Funny idea elsewhere on electronica I found! against access by the tweeter is pretty good (cutaway) where it hurts the bottom if you hold strong guitar playing against you (thus exerting pressure on the soundboard) bass sound false (like when you press the headstock to be a slight vibrato effect) as if the guitar was not stiff enough (it's a shame given the material used for the cash!) I personally find it very disappointing

    I can not really comment on the preamp since I do not have a suitable amplification system but when I was able to connect on a table or when I use it live on my tascam I realized that it does not pose a particular problem (I repeat it is the violin of the guitar that I dislike her its not!)

    SOUNDS

    Ovation sound we like it or not period! I have nothing against me instead and celebrity CC057 has what all the grain that inimitable Ovation ... the bass is a little behind but the balance is not so bad and I like his shiny side that can offend others ... for the price is clearly the strong point of this guitar and it allows an escape from other small defects very annoying

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought it in 1999 and as you could you know it I've never been really satisfied with this guitar although it sounds great for its price range (I hate the takamine!) And the poor finish manufacturing limit does not make it a guitar which I am attached ... Now we must consider that in this price range is by far the best offer acoustic electric ... I also tried the new Celebrity and it must be admitted that if the new preamp does nothing (if a tuner! super ...) the finish seems better quality and profile of the handle is better in my opinion
