| My customer Patrick
Smits was so enthusiastic about the guitars he got from me that he sent
me some sound clips of what they sound like. It's very hard to
describe musical sounds with words. I hope this page grows with
examples from many of my customers' sound clips.
I'm jazzed about this project. I meet a lot
of players and they all seem to want to share their music. I'm hoping
this page will become a forum for sharing.
I'm soliciting sound clips. The only
criterion are that they be on my guitars (Montalvo or Superior); that I
know what model guitar is being used, and that they be of fairly good
George Katechis Montalvo

Andrew Ohren showed up at our shop recently
and started testing guitars. We were amazed by his playing. He told us he
has been using one of our Negra Flamenco guitars with a Cedar top
and cut away for years. He made a couple of CDs using it and here
are a couple of exerps:Mozart, variations on a
theme by Fernado Sor, andChoros #1 by Heitor
Villa-Lobos. Andrew Ohren's web
