Sarban Grimminck, 11.01.2021
As a classical guitarist, I normally would not go for a "amplified/processed" sound. But I was so intrigued by this guitar that I had to try it out. Basically the reason I bought it was so that I have a different "setting" I can play in... instead of my dead sounding living room. Now I can sound like im in, for example, a concert hall or a cathedral. Compositions like Bach's prelude Lute suite Nr 4 for example do translate very well with more reverb

I have had the Yamaha CG TA for about 1 week now... so here my review upto now

The guitar itself is well made for the price... no strange or incorrect build. This is a great feature by Yamaha guitars. Could the quality of the guitar be better? yes... But yamaha decided to use this guitar and I can understand. Its very well playable and the action is not bad at all

Switching the Trans-acoustic reverb ON to 40% hall... you notice a increase in volume and you livingroom transforms into a concert all. And NO CABLES/amp/connected effect required. The higher tones have quite a clear and well dispersed quality to the reverb. Low end notes a bit sticky/muddy if too much reverb (I havent changed the strings yet... so this maybe the issue). I dont use the chorus but the sound is under control. The room reverb is much shorter in length (maybe 1.5 sec) and provides a decent atmosphere to groovier compositions

The experience playing my repetoire with this guitar now is quite different than the playing the unamplified guitars. This breathes new life into creativity and motivation. I allowed myself 2 weeks to decide if im going to return it but I pretty sure I will keep it!

Pas mal, mais ...
KZL28, 29.04.2020
Cela aurait facilement pu être mieux. Malheureusement, Yamaha n'a pas ciblé les joueurs de guitare classique pour sa "transacoustic" classique. L'impression d'ensemble est agréable, l'instrument est bien fini. Sa particularité est d'offrir pas moins de 4 modes distincts de fonctionnement:
1 Acoustique: on va pas se mentir, c'est le point faible de cette guitare. La CG-TA est une cg162S située au milieu de la gamme "étude" du constructeur. Du coup, le timbre, la projection et la sonorité sont à l'avenant. C'est très moyen et pour les joueurs de guitare classique, assez décevant. Pour moins cher, en acoustique pure, la cg192S est bien mieux.
2 Transacoustic: La première bonne nouvelle ! c'est vraiment bluffant . Que ce soit la reverb ou le chorus, la guitare acquiert une toute autre personnalité, et surtout plusieurs personnalités, ce qui en fait tout l'intérêt. Au passage, la projection s'améliore alors que la sonorité semble perdre en justesse (surtout si les piles sont usées). Quant au timbre, et bien il dépend précisément de vos réglages "transacoustic".
3 Electro-acoustique. Là encore, plutôt une bonne nouvelle. le capteur piezo est efficace, et ne produit aucun bruit de fond sur mon ampli (c'est la première fois que je constate cela). Çà reste un piezo, donc les aiguës claquent un peu de base, mais ça peut se corriger avec l'equaliseur de l'ampli, si on n'est pas trop exigeant quand même. Je ne me sers de ce mode que pour sonoriser un looper.
4 Electro-transacoustic: c'est l'addition, assez fidèle, des 2 modes précédents.

Conclusion: C'est un instrument vraiment sympa, et je ne regrette pas du tout mon achat, je regrette que Yamaha ait fait le choix d'une lutherie très moyenne, et la consommation de piles, qui n'est quand même pas négligeable (comptez 2 piles AA tous les 15 jours). Quand je joue "classique" je n'utilise que la reverb "Hall" à environ 20%. On obtient ainsi une amplitude très intéressante.
Quand je joue Jerry REED, je mets le chorus à 40% et la reverb "Room" à 50%. Ce sont les meilleurs réglages que j'ai obtenus, et je n'en change plus. Au delà de 50%, l'effet transacoustic, devient trop imprécis à mon gout.

Wunderbarer Klang!
Ludwig J. Elljott, 23.09.2019
40 Jahre spielte ich ein Admira "Belinda", jetzt habe ich mich neu verliebt. Ich hatte Bedenken, dass ich für diesen Preis eher eine mittelklassige Gitarre erstehe, die allein durch das technische Gimmick aufgewertet sei.
Doch welch freudige Überraschung!
Die Yamaha CG-TA NT Transacoustic überzeugte mich durch ihren klaren, vollen Klang und die ausgezeichnete Verarbeitung. Nächtelang spiele ich seitdem auf ihr Phantasien, ohne auch nur daran zu denken, die Effekte zuzuschalten. Und doch, die Effekte machen, dezent eingesetzt, das Spiel zum Erlebnis. Dreht man zu weit auf, kommt es vor allem bei lebhaftem Spiel zu Rückkopplungen. Diese hallen eine Weile nach, ohne wirklich zu stören.

Danke schön auch an das Team Thomann, das die Gitarre auf meinen Wunsch hin vor Auslieferung auf Herz und Nieren geprüft hatte. So halte ich jetzt ein ausgezeichnetes Instrument in Händen, das ich nicht wieder hergeben werde.

Rapport qualité-prix excellent
Raùl Lubidiane, 01.07.2020
Cette guitare n'est pas une guitare "classique", mais elle permet de jouer avec une présence sonore tout à fait crédible dans des styles différents, pick, folk, blues, impro... dés que l'on enclenche son système electro, c'est vraiment bluffant . Une belle reverb' et un chorus sympa. Mon réglage préféré: 35% reverb, 15% Chorus et voilà un beau son crédible et enthousiasmant pour l'étude, le travail inspiré,,,, vraiment, cela aide à prendre plaisir à travailler son instrument, je conseille à tous ce matériel, d'un rapport qualité/prix introuvable. Bravo aux concepteurs et distributeurs, vous faites avancer l'approche et l'accessibilité de la musique à tous, c'est bien. je recommande ce matériel. Belle expérience!
