ericthegreat's review"Love the Hamer"

Hamer Special
The Hamer Special Is an American made guitar that really can compete with any top guitar brand on the market. The handle is very nice, straight as an "i". Very good access to acute, the set neck has a thin enough profile and D is very clear from the body much like a SG. the guitar sounds great vacuum, with the attack, a good definition and balance. notes stand out well, no complaints on that side. I have this guitar for about 10 years, bought second hand for 4500F. It is a foolproof mechanical stability, never needed adjustment, but a small quarter turn truss rod during a particularly hot summer.

UTILIZATION

The good and beautiful violin, simple and efficient, no frills but with quality materials. All with a weight that is reasonable. The sound is excellent and is located halfway between the thickness of a Les Paul and biting and attacking a Telecaster, while retaining his personality, if you have never tasted the P90, c ' is the kind of guitar that can convert. Ideal when a Les Paul too and gives a strat not enough, it's the perfect compromise. More versatile than you might expect due to the presence of a separate volume by micro, which enables a lot of subtleties in the mixture of the two microphones.

SOUNDS

The Hamer is full of relief, but keeps his balance. It responds very quickly to the nuances of the game, allowing crystal clear arpeggios fingers, clear agreements or drive warm, rhythmic as heavy and saturated. In note-a-note, it's quite a cut, this strong and distinct.
I mostly used a Roland Jazz Chorus, a Marshall JCM 800 and a Crate Vintage Club 50.

OVERALL OPINION

It is this last that I prefer it because this amp is pretty hot, which combines well with bright side of Hamer. I particularly enjoy playing with both pickups selector, because the sound is on the edge of nervousness while keeping enough heat.

Pyrhus's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Hamer Special
Made in the USA of course.
mechanical Schaller (ultra prcises) bridge stop bar + tunOmatic I would prfr a wraparound, but the fittings are of excellent workmanship.
2 Seymour Duncan p90, 2 volumes, 1 Tone Gnrale.
The body and neck are each a pice of mahogany from Honduras! no need to say ... it's very upscale.

USE

The handle is a rgal a bigger and flat coat the profile slim typing gibson (profile D), it is perfect for me, an excellent compromise. It does not encourage acrobatics, but makes you want to do riffs and solos nergiques rock'n roll, play real blues crados and not at SRV.
The guitar is lightweight, access to acute is easy, it really makes you want to play.
The varnish is extraordinarily smooth, never seen something similar elsewhere (in comparison with Fender, Gibson and PRS).
The guitar looks slightly nose is best to use the strap to play sitting down. (But in any fawn nobody plays rock 'n roll seated)

SONORITS

then the it's great, I love the p90 ...
In his clear, the bass is deep and warm but keeps the definition of a single coil. The treble is gnial, lowering his volume and tonality is perfect for an old blues or the muddy waters howlin wolf.
In intermediary, it puts a little more volume on acute, we Tone down a little and it's up to the agreements.
It appears that the p90 are terrible in clear sounds ... It's 8 years old I was playing a Strat, so I can talk about it. Obviously there is less finesse, but the sound is much more alive, round and dynamic, powerful but dfini.
The crunch: the best of the best, this guitar is made for a, we can no longer arrter to play Led Zeppelin plans with! In a directory 70's rock it excels the p90 are the most pchus microphones that are less powerful than a humbucker but so much more nervous, they possdent incredible attack.
In blues it is perfect, but as I crivais higher, the lightnin hopkins that Clapton.
Well-sr is also comfortable in a more modern repertoire and sounds perfectly in alternative savagery.
Basically its harmonics out of all this is impressive.
I've never played on a guitar also reactivates, it transmits all the nuances of mdiator, we pass a pretty clear arpge an agreement dcolle carpet just by varying the attack !dropoff window
Nevertheless a good amp lamps is essential ...

NOTICE GLOBAL

A guitar that I find amazing. I have long cherch good guitar with a good rock and roll me when I fell on the hamer I reu a slap standard.
It's easy enough to play a guitar but you really into him to get the best sound. It is very versatile as it remains in a rock-blues record, vintage or not (depending on your fingers)
If you like the Stooges, MC5, Led Zep ... it really has a bad character; in the proper sense of the term, it is a simple guitar or gross, without compromise, however hard and can prove dlicate. It is very endearing, I find it nice and level sonority ridicules lot of models hupps full of bindings of flames AAAAAAAA tables with mother of pearl inlay red sea ...
When I ramen at the luthier to make rgler, himself said he was amazed manufacturing quality, even more than I announced to him the price at which I had (though he sees Paris pass ...)
This guitar is rare, if you are looking for a good shovel to rock and roll do not hesitate if you fall on it. For my part I have waited a long time but I'm not.
Perfection does not exist but given the price and in terms of the quality features let me put 10 everywhere, the price-quality ratio is unbeatable, hamer almost missed its reputation.
A guitar that I n'changerai for anything, even for a model much Hupp not get any better for rock and roll. (In my opinion) What idea to buy a PRS or gibson custom shop that is worth triple and sounds worse ...
thank you phil77 which also permit a notice on it to his advice.

phil77's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Hamer Special
Made in America, neck 22 frets medium, Tune-o-matic with stop bar. guitar hamer like most is based on the shape of the Les Paul Special double cutaway. Here the body and neck with rosewood fingerboard are made of Honduras mahogany. Finish TV, a tone a little mustard to it seems his name to the fact that the color was fine in black and white TV during the 50s and gave a beautiful gray on the screen ...
Side microphones, we have 2 P90 Seymour controlled by a 3-position switch, a microphone and volume by a general tone.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, straight as an "i". Very good access to acute, the set neck has a thin enough profile and D is very clear from the body much like a SG. the guitar sounds great vacuum, with the attack, a good definition and balance. notes stand out well, no complaints on that side.

SOUNDS

Well suited to blues to rock to AC / DC, Led Zep through and others, is a guitar that sounds authentic, whose simplicity and strength to get to the point (no floyd, no humbuckers) . The clean sounds are clear and beautiful, the neck pickup is majestic in the lower register. The bridge pickup has a lot of bite and attack without being garish, the output level remains relatively high, which is part of the charm of this guitar that sounds good at crunches and saturated enough to play hard rock, even the metal, keeping a good definition

OVERALL OPINION

Excellent value for money for a guitar made in honduras USD.
I own several guitars but it is perhaps this that I will carry on a desert island, because of its simplicity and effectiveness.
