Video bonzomusic – samples

All these songs are recorded by several musicians using bonzomusic instruments.

Models: Electroacoustic guitars, Slide guitars, Acoustic guitar and Fretless Bass

Electroacoustic Guitars:

Two models, the Sixto and the Delta. Both are neck-through body and glued-neck, for maximum sustain and clarity. Both have tonal chambers for resonance and confort.

P90 pickups for a simple and direct sound. Alnico II or Alnico V poles, AWG 43 or 42 cable for a round and/or lite attack.

The pickup is a simple tool to amplify the sound. In bonzomusic guitars it does not carachterize the sound. Shapes and materials together with yourself will make the sound.

No messing around and complicate tweaking: just one or two volume knobs. Your hands and your body will make the sound. Be gentle, be rough, make your instrument caress, cry or yell… it’s up to you.

Delta

Slide Guitars:

Two models: one acoustic Weissenborn and one electric model Electroweiss

The acoustic Weissenborn gives a warm and intense blues sound when played natural.

Amplified by a professional contact mike (LR Baggs iBeam) it gives back the natural sound. The pickup will not shape your sound. You will.

The electric model Electroweiss is made of cedar, for an instant gratification.

Just one volume for subtelty and charm.. or overdriven biting when needed.
