It is a light instrument with a responsive sound, deep low end and crisp high frequencies. These are the characteristics a flamenco guitar should have.
The peculiarity of these guitar is the use of cypress for sides and back. It is a light wood which was used at the beginning because it was easy to find and not expensive. With the passing of time it became the main feature of the flamenco guitars.
Nowadays the difference between a classical and a flamenco guitar is subtle, as it relates more to a tradition and a playing technique than to a manifacture (even if there are some differences in this sense between the two instruments).
In fact there are several classical guitarists that use also a cypress-made guitar and flamenco guitarists as well that use more traditional guitars, made of more traditional woods and with a classical manifacturing.
My Flamenca model is so called because of the use of cypress wood, but it is not only a guitar for those who want to play flamenco music. My project is inspired by the production of the luthiers from Madrid, they in fact build guitars with a thin soundboard that gives you a quick tonal response.
I tried to build an instrument with a characteristic sound, with a voice that highlights the execution of rhythmical and solo parts, as well as flamenco and classical music.
Beyond the dynamic range, it is important to maintain the tonal characteristics of the guitar in order to let the musician express freely. For this reason I have been always producing my guitars using italian red spruce.
Therefore my Flamenca guitar is appreciated by the most classical as well as by the bossa-nova or flamenco musicians.
