gouessax's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good guitar."

Hohner Revelation RTX
- Made in Czech Republic.
- Channel 24 frets, Screw, maple, rosewood, inlaid with ABALONE, and reinforcing rod.
- Mechanical Spertzel.
- Table red, Alder / Maple, painted translucent, with black plate.
- ATX 3 single coil pickups (made in England), which, juxtaposed two way "humbucker" in easel, and one in the neck position.
- "Vibrato" and "Nut-bearing" "WILKINSON". (Front and rear action.)
- Electronics ATN type "passive".
- A volume knob.
- A button tone / presence.
- A button switch 2 positions for contour, and mode that I call "turbo" ... :-)
(More dynamic in some way, used for example, to switch to a rhythmic chorus ... one may like the electronic system for Musicman Bass, Seymour D, to switch to slap ...) .
- A 3-position selector.


Channel perfect! and very well thought out.
Very slim and easy to play every hand.
The key is straight, allowing good velocity, finally, in my case well on ... :-) There will always be those who prefer a well-rounded button ... it's still a taste of history ...
Access to high notes is very easy, due to the body which is dug for the passage of the hand.
It avoids the breaking of the wrist for the last frets ... :-)


Panel sound very good for a guitar at this price!
Used primarily for the rhythm Metal, Rock, and Funk.
and I find the report very respectable, very good and even see the style.

- A small regret for the lack of sustain:
Can a nuisance in the chorus when you want to keep a note ... forced to move the rope like crazy for the last long note ...

- For "my" tastes, ..., I love the funk, once found the right balance. (And here, precisely, the lack of sustain is a big big + for me.)

- Good attack, good presence, beautiful color can come out of this gear, beautiful shine.

- One can regret with regard to the serious ... it lacks a bit low for me ...


I have for 15 years ... gift of 20 years but ... and she has never left it ... :-).

I had never used other models when I got it, but since then there had to many others, Strat, Ibanez, Venson, gibson ... much more expensive, and this is one that I always kept ...
And this ... not just because it's my first electric ... I assure you.
It is true that the sound of a Strat or a Les Paul in their respective styles, is best, obviously, but in terms of playability, versatility, and overall ergonomics of ... there is no picture ...

It is really versatile, easy to play, and especially light (on a very nice one can live long).

I really think that it was not popular with guitarists, Tien that:
- 1 - Hohner accordion is a Manufacturer, ..., it freaked and chat, (what is a manufacturer of "tsouin-tsouin" has to do with the guitars ... etc. ...)
- 2 - A communication almost nonexistent, and very poorly thought at the time of its release, no shame "guitar heroes" have been paid to be seen with live ... regularly as do all brands of instruments of this quality or even much less well, I'm sure she will have had much more success.

So for technical references, please see the notice above:

-If not, well, for my part, handle 24 cases.
Micros-ATX brand (made England) [unknown what]
as shown in the photo, a single and two single-mounted double.
-Bolt and Model 621 series limited.


Channel pleasant to me equivalent to a handle called "highway", very fine.
-Access to treble is very easy, as seen in the photo, the box is the 24th to the beginning of the body.
-The shape is very nice, light body and thin, which does not interfere with sitting or standing.
-To the sound, it can remain correct in the first approach, where my 9 / 10 because of her.


So, in terms of my style of music (progressive rock) from Dream Theater, Joe Satriani and everything revolves around the guitar solo, I chose to change my pickups for the DIMARZIO.
Configuration HH: (Tone Zone and The Breed) everybody know.
-I play on home-made amplifiers (in solid-state and all-tube).
-Sounds with these pickups are hot, and very expressive. Its metal-oriented, with good distortion, and what to play in D and harmonics are excellent.
In his clear, they hold the road well.
-As for the violin, the sustain of the guitar is very very low.
No doubt the quality of the wood, or weight (too) light.
Since the change of micro, lack of natural sustain, in the original config, I give a rating of 5 / 10 to the scraper.


-I bought used for 1500 F 6 years ago. And I use it for 6 years.
-What I like most is the smoothness of the handle, and access to acute hyper self. The shape I like a lot and very light weight.
-I have not tried other models before buying, because I began to scratch, and it happened on a whim.
-The price / quality ratio is still good for a low-end guitar.
-With experience, I will not repeat this choice, except that I keep this form and ergonomics that make the same scratch (shape and smoothness) by a luthier, with much better wood, neck- , a Floyd Rose vibrato, scaloppé a handle and a custom painting.

Hohner Revelation RTX
The fuitare was manufactured in a country that no longer exists today: The tchquoslovaquie, she has 24 cells, a single in the neck position and a double bridge. Vibrato is the type with a system that wilkinson bizaroide small cylinders which had caught the rope force in the vibrato, but everything can be done to install the standard string fawn.
The rglages permettazient have a pallette of sound, sound a little folk, for example, but it was not always obvious use. Was a volume, a tone with a push Pushp, and a tone and normal Gnrale. The tonality of the medium is only activated if you press it, and allowed to have some sort of outline. The system is very original, there is a small box with a reel but I do not know more.
The handle is very late, the key rather flat, it is comfortable thumb position drrire.

I note carctristiques not a guitar, everyone is able to judge if this is what he likes or not.


The handle is pleasant, with highs rather CASC PPRE, the guitar is trslgre. Because of its fineness it is well suited to handle people who have small hands. The child for example. Guitazre is the balance, it is more trslgre.

To get a good sound is not always easy with this bizarre potentiomtre in shade. Cons by the selector 3 position is practice, not s'emmenche Dabner things complicated configuration of microphone is ultimately simple and effective.


The guitar sounds very empty, because there's a big pool under the micro plate. But it lacks very badly sustain.

APRS that the system of tonality RTXvb5212 supra super gizmo has stop working I rewired the more standard gear fawn.
one Volume, Tone A normal push push (carrment operate faster than a push-pull) is the pseudo double splitter. The guitar has gained in rapidity of action that it has lost in unnecessary versatility mga my taste.

In fact its not really clear is transcending my taste, finally saying that the simple and very very far from the neck pickup's sound strat, who has a sound that I love. It's less dug fewer low. It is not clear dsagreable and well in groups but it is not what I was looking for the era.
There's a very usable for its intermdiare funk, fairly effective, although it lacks a little something.
The double: good clean sound I do not like any double fawn. on the other hand in distortion, it is quite effective, caa a good ball, and it's pretty aggrssif own. As a bonus it is easy enough to bring out the harmonics of the microwave.


I've had Holala, 15 years ...
I like the shape of the guitar, his own double in a little distortion with harmonic wheelbarrow, the box which was a gift, and handle very pleasing, the lgeret of gear.
I do not like the color, the sound of simple clear that lack of character, lack of sustain.

I tried a lot of scrapes before, that ca me caractristique seduced by her, a simple config, which can provide good sound likeable.
Then the ratio quality price, well the era it was not bad, there was good caractristiques, after 15 years, not the guitar very very well matured, the neck is a just a little twist, the frets have worn fairly quickly, the electronic system, has not kept the shocks.

Avc the exprience I would do no such choice, because today Dj for the same price we find most interesting instruments.
Now I have the guitar I keep it (I do not see much use for resale 100E), I play very often with most, but every time I rediscover the pleasure, the handle is quite nice the sounds are original, and works well in double distortion. In short it is a guitar not bad, just particulire. His only real default when same being the lack of sustain.
