Dönberg Imperial (no D-Tron) - guitar pure!

Götz K., 20.12.2011
My conclusion for all Kurzleser fix vorweg!

My advantages:
- very special Dreamvintagesound Twang 60s Beat Rockabilly
- incredibly long, thick, clean tones
- Distortion-proof in moderation
- very nice and cool guitar look ;-)
- very good playability
- Class, voiced Tremolo
- Guitar case - very solid and chic

My only drawback:
- Pickup caps snapped softly, and the screwing had to be tightened

In short, I bought this guitar, I did not regret a single time, the guitar is an optical on every gig and !!!! Acoustic highlight and I would buy this guitar anytime again!

Long version:

As owner of various nozzle guitars and other semiaustics like Haegstroem and Gibson, I still lacked a certain sound.
I searched for chords, singing full chords with depth and warmth, singlenotes with a lot of sustain, and above all an assertive tone when using clean, minimal slightly more gain vintage guitar sounds, so just a lot of guitar with vintage charm.

Even my Duesenberg Carl Carlton did not come up to my wish sound, so I tried various amps and settings and was always not satisfied. Guitarist's Disease? ;-)

In my search for other types of guitars except the ES models, the Imperial caught my eye, since all the shops around here could not offer an Imperial and I wanted to know if there might be some of my wanted sound shows here, I agreed kulanterweise The Thomann support a dispatch for the view, probably with the option this guitar played back in case of failure.

The guitar came on and was already excited by the optics simply, I was initially more a fan of the Trans Orange variant, the TRB version was an absolute dream, the lacquer does not cover completely udn runs to the edge into the black, is only from the cream-white edge Refined The Chrome hardware fits very quietly here.

After a temperature adjustment it went to the import, and I was and am totally excited.

In every PU position the Imperial was convincing, not with too much output, like other Duesenbergs (egStarplayer Special), the adaptation to different amps was optimal. Full twangy sound with all the options I described above in the middle position (My favorite sound!),
Thick soft jazz sound on the neck and cool wiry to trashy 60ths and yet soft enough on the bridge position.

And indeed with a Tubescreamer TS9 enforceable without mud, of course, with appropriate tendency to feedback.

The sound control tone is good, andn your job just fine in the PU bridge position. The Midshift is a breath esoteric ;-), nevertheless he makes something and that even good!

In spite of my 11's preference, the 10-string string fits the guitar very well, yes I can play with this guitar many fills and runs much better and more convincingly than with all my other guitars.

The Tremolo allows incredible bendings and feels softer, I can even play with the little finger, the whole thing, of course, absolutely tunable.

I am totally enthusiastic, and can recommend for this guitar one and my top recommendation, well done Duesenberg and Thomann!
