C.F. Martin DC-28E
This Dreadnought, acoustic-electric cutaway takes advantage of the full tonal qualities of East Indian rosewood and pairs it with a solid Sitka spruce top. A black ebony fingerboard and bridge with complementing black pickguard complete this beautiful model. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Martin introduces the new Fishman® Aura® VT Enhance™ electronics, the perfect addition to elevate the legendary Martin tone you’ve come to love and expect. D-28 style instruments have been played by many musical legends including Elvis Presley and Marcus Mumford.
“C.F. Martin & Co. has been making the finest acoustic guitars and providing the best equipment to accompany them for 182 years,” said CEO and Chairman Chris Martin IV. “The new Aura® VT Enhance™ and Matrix VT Enhance™ acoustic amplification by Fishman are prime examples of our dedication to making a Martin guitar sound like a Martin guitar when amplified.”
The systems are unobtrusive with no control holes cut into the side of the guitar and also easy to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls mounted inside the soundhole. The resulting quality meets the Martin standard of excellence with an unmatched responsiveness to touch and playing.
Fishman’s new Enhance Transducer is designed to capture the longitudinal energy of the guitar top while resisting the transverse energy that manifests in string squeak, body handling noise, and parasitic feedback. These characteristics are added to the unparalleled audio performance of the Aura VT Enhance with Acoustic Imaging by Fishman.
Available exclusively on the Martin guitars, Aura VT Enhance acoustic amplification by Fishman offers an Aura Image specifically made for each model.
