Altamira N300F Flamenco Classical Guitar
The Altamira N300F classical is ideal for students beginning Flamenco guitar studies. The spruce and cypress construction of this guitar produces a typical dry flamenco tone.
The traditional flamenco guitar is made of Spanish cypress, sycamore, or rosewood for the back and sides. Flamenco luthiers compliment this by using spruce for the top of the guitar. This accounts for the Flamenco guitar’s characteristic light body colour.
Flamenco guitars are built lighter with thinner tops than classical guitars, which produces a brighter and more percussive sound quality suitable for Flamenco repertoire. Less internal bracing is used to keep the top more percussively resonant.
Volume and projection are especially important for flamenco guitarists, as they must be heard over the sound of the dancers’ nailed shoes. To increase volume, harder grade tone woods are used for Flamenco models.
The Altamira N300F Flamenco is an exceptional instrument at this affordable price point.
