    SOUNDS

    Great sound despite his youth, I compare my Epiphone (Dreadnought Kalamazoo) 72 which sounds like hell ...
    It is even more powerful with deep, well-rounded bass, accurate mids and crystal-clear highs, and what sustain!
    Pleasant picking, powerful with a pick.
    It can play almost any ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Too short to make an objective judgment.
    24 hours of pure happiness, 24 years I expected ...
    I had and still have a lot of guitars, good some not so good ...
    In the same price range I recently tried Taylor of Gibson (1 very good Songwriter), the Takamine, etc.. ... but I'm back on Martin and especially this bluffing D35 (new at the price of D18)

    Nazareth Music Center
    $1600

    This is a truly full sounding guitar. Very strong bass but not boomy like some Tacomas I have played. Nice to look at and I really like the thin neck compared to some of my less expensive guitars. Notice I said thin not narrow. For example, my Washburn neck is thick and V shaped. It took some getting used to after many years of cheap guitars with necks like the Washburn. Now I love it and going back is hard.

    Action was a bit high for my taste. I took it to my local shop and they did a great job to lower it. This was the shop that informed me about the neck, read below.

    Guitar looks nice, great finish but it had a bad neck set and needed to go back to the factory for reset. Only a few months old. Not what I expected.

    Nice guitar but I think Martin is cranking out instruments in too large a quantity for quality workmanship. Maybe that is not true with the higher priced units. A neck reset on a vitually new guitar shouldn't happen. I just purchased a lower end Breedlove to replace some of my cheap guitars. I was originally thinking about a Martin D16 but had a bad time with Maritn customer service involving my D35.

    Martin & Co D-35Publié le 12/04/03 à 15:00
    Bought from a (good) friend for $500 altho it needed some work.

    Once I added a few hundred dollars to enhance the bracing, bridge plate, add inlay, and other minor enhancements, it plays like no other guitar I've ever owned. Deep, rich tone, and after adding a Sunrise pick-up, the quality of this guitars tone amplifies quite nicely. I've since played new D-35's, which are also very fine instruments, but I would talk to a qualified guitar craftsman to enhance the beauty and sound.

    There are no dislikes. I recommend the D-35 to any advanced guitarist.

    color rosewood . The finish on mine is perfect with great piece of spruce for the top .
    I had heard this model might have a strong bass and indeed it does . It is a nice
    effect for finger picking . This is the first guitar I have owned that did not come out
    of a pawn shop or the used rack in the music store and it seems to sound better
    every day . This martin guitar comes with a lifetime warrenty and a good hard shell
    case which are something I appreaciate . I like the new Martin guitar smell of thing
    too .

    There is not a lot to dislike about it BUT the strings are higher than my inexpensive
    Fender La Brea . and it is a little harder to play . ON the three piece back ,
    the center sections wood runs even to one side and meets the other at a angle .
    It would have looked nicer if the grain ran centered evenly up the middle

    The construction is first rate and I have noticed no flaws . It has a great finish with
    a lot of depth to it . I feel it was a good purchase and would buy another Martin
    guitar .

    The D35 I own has a good sound , it is the best sounding guitar of the three I have
    but it is by far the most expensive . It is harder to play than my Fender or Gibson
    with the Fender having the fastest action and duller sound . The Martin is a great guitar
    and it should be . It cost ten times what I payed for the used Fender La Brea which
    by the way is also a good looking guitar .

    I bought this guitar brand new in 1970 for $350, which also included the case.


    When I purchased it, Martin was just running out of their stock of Brazilian rosewood, (because of the fire) so mine is unique in that the back center panel and sides were made of the Brazilian and the other 2 back panels are Indian rosewood.


    The only thing I don't like about my D35 is that I wish at the time I purchased a D45 for a couple of hundred dollars more. I find that I'm partial to all the abalone and fancies.


    My guitar was constructed with the same excellent craftsmanship that all Martin's have.

    The only work I've done to my Martin was to hand sand the top braces to a scallop for more tone and power. To accomplish this I used my 1940 Martin 0018's braces as a sort of pattern.

    The legendary, old brother..or maybe cousin to the D28?? Not quite sure but they are both legendary and offer very different tones even though on paper they are very similar.

    UTILIZATION

    It's just your basic acoustic guitar, so there's nothing to it in terms of ergonomic designs or access to the upper frets etc. Just wood and wire!

    SOUNDS

    Here's where it becomes worth the money. Most guitar players in the market for a good acoustic, when they look through the Martins it's almost always a battle between the 28 and 35 and there is a huge tonal difference. Most people say it's because of the 3 piece back and I can say yes that has something to do with it but the biggest difference is the bracing, it's a thinner piece of bracing used on the 35s vs the 28s that allow such a huge bottom and low midrange from the 35 that 28 lovers may not like so much.

    This is what makes or breaks it. Totally up to you of course and which sound you like better. The 35 definitely has a bigger sound for those powerful chords and whatnot. Of course, I would probably replace the strings first with a decent set. I very much dislike the martin lifespan strings and would rather settle with plain jane Daddarios that have been just fine for me for a very long time.

    OVERALL OPINION

    HUGE sound. Legendary guitar. Awesome build, ALWAYS consistent from model to model and lifetime warranty with Martin. Can't really complain can ya? If you're looking for an acoustic guitar that'll probably last longer than your own lifetime, with a great huge warm and BIG low midrange, this is definitely worth looking into. Yes it's a bit pricey but once you play it, you'll understand that it's worth every penny.

    For technical information, see the website of Martin & Co

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is impeccable. Easy to play and enjoyable.
    We can not access easily to acute, but is it the goal with this guitar? Ergonomics - overall - is excellent?
    The sound? See below.

    SOUNDS

    That's exactly what I want. I can do almost everything. It sounds, it is clear, it's warm but precise. It does not bleed. Good sustain. Good power.
    This skyscraper is the ball (as the jeuuunes today)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 3 months and I love it. I teamed with a piezo. I tried four models when purchasing (at Musik Hug in Lausanne)
    - A Gibson JC-100
    - A Takamine (high-end, but I do not remember the name)

    - A Gibson JC-100
    - A Takamine (high-end, but I do not remember the name)
    - A Taylor 414 equipped with the Taylor Expression System
    - The D-35
    The Gibson was very nice and had a good bass response (requires combo) but sounded too typical (too dedicated to certain styles). I had put a 15 / 20, as a teacher.
    The Takamine sounded correct amplified and was very easy to play, but we feel that good mechanics, finish and quality of materials used is below. A good scratch for the stage, if there are to keep under 10. 8 / 20.
    The Taylor sounded very clear - too well - was not very easy to play and the new amplification system produced a blast worthy of a hurricane. The materials used are correct. 10 / 20.
    When the D-25, everything was superb. 18 / 20.
    It's expensive - even very expensive - but the quality is by appointment. I would do 10 times that choice.

    Construction and rglages irrprochables.
    Handle even when fairly strait for large paws (not my case!)

    UTILIZATION

    Channel enjoyable although it can beat the ease of play, but this is trs correct.
    Can be mounted light strings for amliorer.
    Guitar PSE weight of solid wood so you can also find + lightweight plywood but will not do the same fawn.
    Guitar rpond although it involved picking low volume (sustain and warmth) or involved in nergique mdiator (folk boom Neil Young fawn or bluegrass)

    SOUNDS

    Guitar powerful and well-planned, low on top, crystalline highs.
    But the main CHARACTERISTICS are in my opinion the sound quality:
    - Sustain that continues, extends ...
    - Trs rsonance a warm and harmonics galore on the same acute
    Playing dclenche a smile of satisfaction incontrlable ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Guitar has been using for 1 + year with always the same pleasure
    Only small default: the ease of play an average D especially when you have small arms but it did.
    APRs have previously bought several guitars folks (EN60C Takamine, Ovation custom balladeer, Lowden S5), it is the best without question!
    As Paul Beuscher could say a few years ago (and still true now + o prices have tightened between diffrent marks) for the price of a guitar, treat yourself to a Martin!
