Unbeatable for the price
Sabjan, 28.02.2021
I was looking for an 8 string Classical for a while and wasn't able to find anything that was affordable; I'm not a professional guitarist by any means so purchasing an 8 string Classical was looking to cost me several thousand dollars. I couldn't justify the price, but I luckily found this. The guitar sounds amazing and plays wonderfully in your hands. Having the extra range is beautiful, though I'm playing with a tuning that isn't standard E+2 strings lower, I feel like 2 lower bass strings is more suited for someone looking to play Baroque and older but that isn't my forte. Anyway, I don't think any guitarist could complain about the extra range and possibilities it opens up for the instrument. The finish is a smooth matte/satin surface that feels a lot nicer than the usual high-gloss finish you find on most Classical Guitars.

There's two issues I've found, first is a manufacturing defect... on the bottom of the body the guitar has a pretty noticeable crack that it had right out of the box. Not the biggest deal and it doesn't impact playing but still, it's a shame that it's there and it doesn't look like shipping damage. I'm also surprised with how little protection the shipping had, just some cardboard boxes and paper padding. The second issue I see, and it's minor, but I'm not sure where to get strings for this thing or who even makes them. Each string seems to be a different gauge so I'm lost as to what my options are when buying new strings, and Thomann doesn't seem to list the strings that the guitar ships with on their site (unless I'm missing something).

Overall, you really cannot beat this price but don't let the seemingly low price fool you, while it sounds "too good to be true" it isn't, this is a wonderful instrument for any guitarist.

Rapport qualité/prix incroyable !
Girou, 28.12.2018
Cette guitare est assez incroyable sur le plan du rapport qualité/prix. Ce n?est pas de la grande lutherie, mais la guitare est juste, agréable à jouer, le son plus que correct et la finition est satisfaisante. Je suis guitariste de métier et je joue principalement de la musique baroque, renaissance et contemporaine. Je travaille par ailleurs sur une 8 cordes Damian Burget Unico qui bien évidemment n?est pas comparable en termes de lutherie, de prix et de sonorité. Mais je dois avouer que cette Thomann 8 cordes n?a pas trop à rougir de la comparaison et c?est un instrument sur lequel on peut réellement travailler. De l?aigu au grave, je l?accorde : mi,si,sol,ré,la,mi,ré,la. J?ai tout de suite changé les cordes qui sont livrées avec. Elles ne m?ont pas paru d?excellente qualité, surtout les graves, ne pouvant à mon
avis rendre compte du potentiel de cet instrument. J?ai installé des Savarez new cristal pour les cordes aiguës et des D?Addario pour les graves, avec cordes spéciales D?Addario également pour le ré grave et le la grave.
C?est un instrument que l?on peut qualifier d?assez bonne guitare d?étude et j?avoue que, pour le prix, je ne m?attendais pas à une qualité pareille.

Sehr gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis
Blanky, 03.01.2021
Für diesen Preis ist das Instrument sehr zufriedenstellend. Der Klang ist überraschend ansprechend bei sehr guter Spielbarkeit. Als Instrumentallehrer für klassische Gitarre gingen schon viele "Billiginstrumente" durch meine Hände und selten habe ich so ein zufriedenstellendes Instrument in dieser Preisklasse gefunden, dazu noch ein schwierig zu bekommender 8-Saiter. Habe es erst ein paar Tage kann es aber uneingeschränkt empfehlen.
