breath taking

Gunther F., 25.09.2013
More important than the brand to me is the sound. Therefore I compared quite a few guitars from cheap to expensive. The Ovation 2771AX-5 Standard Balladeer statisfied me with an affordable price and a breath taking sound. No regret at all.

Dream meets reality

Ralf600, 15.08.2012
Ovation, what a name! Almost every guitarist (not even a professional and a re-starter, like me) dreams of possessing such a guitar. Therefore I first ordered the CC 24 2N and was already very satisfied. Unfortunately, my prosperity body did not manage so well with the roundbowl, but the sound and the playability were so convincing that I simply continued searching and discovered the 2771 AX with Contour Bowl. When I then read the comments on this, this guitar was ordered shortly (one lives only once) and came to Thomann like blitzschnell.

The processing and performance of this ovation is only 1+. The Contourbowl is tailor-made and gives you the feeling of holding a normal western guitar with thin body in your hands. The look is a feast for the eye. As already mentioned in another comment, you should definitely invest in a pickguard to protect the beautifully processed corpus blanket from scratches.

Ovations are always in unison, but with the 2771 AX, Ovation has managed to achieve an increase through the special Bowlform. When striking or relaxing on the deep strings one literally vibrates the vibrations and the sound volume is indescribable. This even with an extra light 10-string set. Even more striking the whole thing then in the amp operation. What's going on is very much reminiscent of electric guitars, especially if you add diverese effects. The built-in OCP pickup and the OP preamp are already state of the art of what can be used today as a pickup system for acoustic guitars. Especially, the additional EQ button is mentioned, which adds to the overall medium tone and sound range, thus creating even more brilliance.

The string height and the tense strings were too high or too tight in the delivery condition. Also here completely uncomplicated tuning, by removing the shims in the bridge and softer string sets (here you should just try some manufacturers). On the CC 24 2N I now have the Adamas 1717, which are simply wonderful for rhythm, chords and quiet solos. Bendings are also possible, but not as smooth as the Thomastik Ac110 or the GHS Vintage strings, which I play on the 2771 AX 5. But as always, the taste is different and individually different.

For me, therefore, a dream has become reality. I've had some Western guitars from Yamaha and Fender in the past, which, like other brands, are sure to build very good guitars, but the myth of Ovation has been very special in terms of sound and playability.

The 2771 AX 5 is certainly not the egg laying wool milk, but for guitarists who are looking for an acceptable compromise between genuine Western guitar and E guitar with just special sound, this Ovation Guitar is also a real alternative.
