Collings D2HPublished on 02/15/07 at 08:49
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Martin HD28 and D41, I think she wins, and top, both in terms of loudness and balance, it comes back not in fact the first time we made comparison.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for almost a month and she "takes her" day by day it is amazing, I can not imagine what she will "go out" by a dozen years.

I tried the guitar for three months before making my choice, it is to say .... increased testing of Furch, the Larivee, Gibson, Martin (D28, HD28, D35, D41, D42, D45 ...).

I judge the quality / price allois very good since the Martin D41 is labeled with 3600 euros and 3900 euros Collings D2H! for the price difference I invite you to test and compare for yourself, you will soon understand.

I would do if this choice? I feel that when we tried a Collings, you get stuck! And I did not try the more expensive models in 5000 or 7000 euros, firstly because I did not confuse me wit, on the other hand, at that level, I had compared and tried bcp models, I have not seen the real interest. I tried a Collings 000, also exceptional, and in the same price range, but it is a "dread" I wanted first, then personal choice, but the 000 is moving too!

It took me around 10, which does not mean that there is no better guitar (since you can get in the range from Collings!), This means that we seek in vain, it is find nothing to say negative, we remain baba is everything.

My advice if you're up for spending 2800 euro in 2500 or an acoustic guitar: be patient and save a little for you to pay a Collings!" rel="ugc noopener" target="_blank"> http://www.collingsguitars.com/dreadnoughts-D2H.htm

This guitar was made entirely by hand in Austin (Texas). Brand Collings, I believe, is not very well known, but it made its merry way, and lots of music professionals now swear by this brand name, considered the most as the reference of one of the top five luti the world (yes). Collings was chosen "gold 2006" magazine "Acoustic Guitars".

The Luter, therefore, is simply outstanding. The wood does not "sound" are not set aside in Collings, they will live in the trash.

UTILIZATION

The handle "V" is very enjoyable to play, being a regular at this type of run I did of course not experienced any particular difficulties, but I can also report a guitarist friend of mine in a way General "does not like sleeves 'V'", found at the first grip very pleasant to play, and felt no particular disability, it is to say.
In terms of shape and weight is a pure dreadnought, very well balanced, not too heavy.
Lon if "easily gets a good sound"? ha ha ha! Just touch a rope to get carried away, having said that it requires very precise game because "all" means. I think the two E string very close to the edge of the handle, sometimes I feel some difficulty because I happen to slip the rope off the handle, but it is not an inherent difficulty with the guitar, it is necessary get used to the play, that's all, it also adds the requirement of precision game that requires the instrument.
Question loudness, we can directly say that it is one of the most powerful guitars in the world. I am also playing in repeats with musicians that are plugged and sometimes I cover them if I chose to put a good shot! Even picking those who are with me not plugged in acoustics do not hear out their guitar.

SOUNDS

I rated the sound power above. As for the sounds they are extremely well balanced, whether in low, warm and strong in the midrange, or treble. It does not sound "marked" a high-end Martin, for example, which will pull more towards the medium crystalline. Here we are in an almost perfect balance.

It has several sounds depending on the game or picking rhythm, according to the power that one starts to play well. That said, it "banal" an instrument of this quality.

Compared with an in-store Martin HD28 and D41, I think she wins, and top, both in terms of loudness and balance, it comes back not in fact the first time we made comparison.
