Roland and Martin Guitar have partnered to introduce the new Roland AP-1 preamp.


The AP-1 will be available in several new Martin models which include the 00C-16DBGTE, DC-16OGTE and the OMC-16OGTE. The AP-1 is Roland’s new onboard acoustic guitar preamp. It uses Roland’s Composite Object Sound Modeling technology to produce three body-specific tone variations and includes a programmable seven-band EQ, anti-feedback control, digital chromatic tuner, digital reverb and LCD display, according to the company.

The 00C-16DBGTE is a small-bodied Grand Concert-sized Venetian cutaway guitar with a deeper body depth. The soundboard is polished to a high gloss while the mahogany back and sides are finished to a soft satin luster. Appointments include a herringbone rosette, black Micarta fingerboard and bridge, black Boltaron, top and back bindings, chrome enclosed tuning machines and Style 28 bridge pins.

The new Roland AP-1 onboard electronics system features three body-specific COSM tone variations and includes programmable seven-band EQ, anti-feedback control, digital chromatic tuner, digital reverb and an LCD display. Each 00C-16DBGTE ships in a durable 334 hardshell case with a light brown interior.

The DC-16OGTE and OMC-16OGTE feature Ovangkol (also known as mozambique, shedua, or amazakoue), an African tonewood that ranges in color from a tawny olive brown to a deep chocolate with dark striping. The DC-16OGTE is a full-bodied Dreadnought and the OMC-16OGTE is a smaller-bodied Orchestra Model. Both models feature rounded Venetian cutaways and polished gloss tops with satin-finished back and sides. The 3-piece back is comprised of solid ovangkol wings with an East Indian rosewood center wedge.

Other features common to both models include a 1 3/4" (at the nut) modified low oval neck, a bound fingerboard, chrome enclosed tuning machines, a 345 hardshell case, and the new Roland AP-1 electronics.
