hhub17's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A Gypsy fortune to cheap!"

Aria MM-20
Channel lumberjack compared to electric I also, and compared to my Takamine folk, but playable.
In fact, I bought it secondhand, almost given a cashqqchose, and it had been cobbled together with a small piece of wood under the bridge, up to the action so that string frisent.D ' where less easy game sensation, that's for sure!
No original microphone, but I glued a small piezo on the table and it sounds good in amplified.
I discovered through the review below can adjust the handle by in the mouth, it would probably be a relevant alternative to the block to prevent string curl.


Channel: see above. Ergonomics: OK, is well in hand sitting or standing with a stool, or a strap. Access to treble: quite easy thanks to the cutaway, which is more elegant and gives a beautiful look to the guitar.
Good sound: yes, so much so that the first time I got it, I abandoned the Takamine, the Strato and other spontaneously to play it, even without any particular reason, just to relax after work, for example .


It is especially made for the gypsy, somewhat support, moreover, to be sure, and yet we can try other things, it has an interesting sound. I have not tried the sacrilege of bottleneck, but in electroacoustics, we must equalize for a particular type of sound to accompany songs and such, it also defends.


I use it for a year, I looked and tried similar guitars in a gypsy who made the markets, and it was far from being given. In luthiers corner (Mirecourt in the Vosges), there were also such but, far from being data. I had almost given up when I stumbled upon a CASHXXXX, resulted in 50% of the marked price which was already well below the retail price: in fact, € 120. Of course, no pick, strap, carrying cases or string parts for that price, but hey, we all have it at home.
It is engaging and easy to get out of fine sounds (I think), but when it becomes more difficult technique.
Value: unbeatable for me, I think having bought a third of its value.
With experience, I would not miss this opportunity if I fell over!

Aria MM-20
This guitar is an imitation of the famous Selmer. It is also available as a mouth MM10 D (Maccaferi imitation). The table is solid spruce, the back and wicker covers India rosewood plated handle cedro. Made in China, it has mcaniques cover (an innovation Selmer) appropriate but leave me wondering about their hard time. The varnish is orang dlicieuse which gives the impression of having a guitar patina with age. Note that it is book team of Argentina and the string table and back are bombs. Considering the price, the finish, which includes net is extremely sastifaisante. However, the tailpiece could probably be amlior low cost.


The handle is adjustable for a team available through the mouth. Ergonomics and Access in acute meet this type of guitar. The handle is enjoyable, not very pais unlike many guitars of this type that are fitted with a pickaxe handle. In addition, the low action makes the game sweet solo trs. However, for the rhythm, it would prefer a higher action.


The sound is trs correct, in view of the tariff. It offers a good reason and evokes the sound IMMEDIATE gypsy. It is also necessary to adapt his game (clean attack with a plectrum pais). A good point: the sound is not uniform and changes according to the attack. The power is good. The sound is particulirement envotante in mdiums and treble. It is a perfect instrument for jazz manouche in Premire a beginners guitar or an occasional guitar or other instrument to a specialist in style. (Selmer take his or her in an evening Favino beef, scared ...)


I use this instrument for three months. It is the ide that one has a gypsy guitar: a simple and low coteux, we dare leave home without fear.
I find this guitar suprieure the Rudy Larna on several points: it is most similar (the nets, the rose window, the shape of the head finer, the top and back bombs, mcaniques covers), it is also easier to play, even if the action is a little low for rhythmic muscle. Finally, the strings of origin are better. The guitar is the least I onreuse possde, but I find it really attractive, both in the game, the sound of Aesthetics. I would do without hsiter choice.

Aria MM-20
THE Aria MM20 is made in China, it has 21frettes
Dote Savarez Argentine strings.
The varnish is beautiful but fragile trs, I take care of mine but it has several raflures is inviting.
The handle is long is not enjoyable trs trs large: What gypsy guitar ^ ^
It is the same shape as the Selmer, beautiful design, it is a beautiful object. The back is mcaniques bomb and of good quality.


So yes trs enjoyable round, Access in acute pan is facilitated by the blow which allows us the game until the box 17.
The shape is gorgeous it is not heavy but not all trs lgre either.
This gives her a good condition to play the gypsy is a tool for gypsy jazz, nothing else. So you have to play with the strong attack for his worthy cause gypsy guitars


It is suitable for gypsy jazz, that's it ^ ^
Nan seriousness, we can not really play with something else, the sound is not the same if you do not play a gypsy the fawn.
It sounds nice but not strong enough, which is why it is necessary to place a small bit of wood under the bridge to increase it. It's good sound for beginners in gypsy, I with the comments above and it is true that it is perfect for beginners but APRS trying several gypsy, we realize that the sound is a bit Different. The pump is not great gypsy at the same time it is the small mouth MODEL.


I use it for over a year now.
I love its price, its design and is really good quality almost no one manufacturing default.
I had not tried to gypsy guitar aced this one. APRS several months I tried a gypsy and gypsy jpeux that aa no connection, we play much better with a gypsy, and the sound is not the same, so conclusion: It was a good scratching a gypsy for beginners Status of APRS sell to buy a gypsy. when we want to evolve, to change guitar becaufe realizes she did not sound the same and the same report that the Gypsy guitar or other instrument makers.
The report price is trs suitable quality when you see the price of gypsy guitars, it is of good quality and trs trs is a good alternative for beginners.
I would do this election if I knew I would beginners gypsy jazz and I will care for the sell to buy better for the future
