Introducing the Viennese Guitar – an instrument built with authentic design based on the renowned Stauffer guitar model from 1811. This captivating instrument possesses a multitude of distinctive features and offers a wide range of musical possibilities, spanning from powerful trebles to gentle and warm mids and lows. Its timbre palette, projection, and balance are truly exceptional.
For over two centuries, the Viennese guitar has held a significant place in the world of guitar culture. Remarkably, these guitars were already being widely distributed, including in Russia, in the form of a seven-stringed instrument, long before the advent of the Spanish guitar by Torres. It is important to acknowledge that the Viennese guitar and the Spanish guitar are distinct instruments, differing not only in their structure but also in their tonal characteristics.
The Viennese guitar stands as a testament to its own unique legacy, offering musicians a rich and distinctive sound that sets it apart from its Spanish counterpart. Its historical significance and musical versatility make it a cherished instrument that continues to captivate musicians and enthusiasts alike.
