Martin DC-Aura Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar Review :: Martin Guitar Reviews


projects the true sound of the guitar as captured by high-end condenser microphones in a premium studio.


Description
A special dreadnought model fitted with deluxe electronics for stunning acoustic-electric tone no matter the circumstances. The Martin DC-Aura Cutaway has a solid Sitka spruce top, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck with modified low oval shape, and special pearl hexagon outline inlays on the ebony fretboard and bridge. Other special Martin touches include a mother-of-pearl logo, ebony bridge and end pins with abalone dots, and gold tuners with ebony buttons. This Martin DC-Aura Cutaway special edition of the Fishman Aura Acoustic Imaging Blender provides onboard access to studio-quality sounds live. The Aura does not change your guitar tone, but accentuates it to project the true sound of the guitar as captured by high-end condenser microphones in a premium studio. 6 customized Sound Images, derived from actual studio recordings of the DC can be blended with the resonant output of the Martin Gold+Plus Natural pickup signal for previously unattainable hi-fidelity reproduction of the world-renowned Martin acoustic tone. Other electronic features include a fully programmable digital EQ, feedback control, and a chromatic tuner.

Sound of Martin DC-Aura Guitar

  • by far one of the top playing acoustic, very good loud tone and strong;
  • definitely a high end guitar;
  • punchy, deep sound and clearer in the treble than any Gibson;
  • unbelievable sounds when recording;
  • great, flexible plugged in sound;
  • the bass is not the loudest you can get from an acoustic and the high end is not the brightest, but the sound is even and complex and harmonious throughout its range.

Pros of Martin DC-Aura Acoustic Electric Guitar

  • a beautiful blonde spruce top bound with abalone, and a super high gloss finish everywhere;

  • looks or tonal and build quality;
  • you can feel the vibration in your whole body;
  • matches any D-28, D-35 or D-45;

  • unbelievable sounds when recording;
  • lives up to all expectations;
  • the finish is spotless and the wood all blends together tremendously;
