Musikmesse 2016: Yamaha TransAcoustic - Revolutionary
Of the many new products presented at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, some, like this new acoustic guitar from Yamaha, are real standouts. Yamaha themselves refer to the TransAcoustic system as revolutionary and it's not hard to see why. The Yamaha LL-TA dreadnought and the LS-TA triple oh models produce a sound that'll make you think you're playing in a room with great acoustics no matter where you are. And they do this without the need for an amplifier.
Great acoustics anywhere!
The Yamaha TransAcoustic guitars are fitted with a digital preamp for built-in reverb and chorus effects that would normally only be produced in an environment like a specially-designed concert hall. The guitars are fitted with an actuator inside the body that picks up the vibrations from the strings and begins to vibrate itself, thereby sending more vibrations back out through the soundhole for surprisingly authentic reverb and chorus. As a result, you'll always get a wonderful acoustic sound.
The LL-TA is available in a Vintage Tint and a Brown Sunburst finish, while the LS-TA is available in a Vintage Tint and Brown Sunburst finish also. The latest technology means nothing of course, unless the guitars themselves are up to scratch too. That's why Yamaha have given both models an all-solid construction with a Spruce top, Rosewood sides and back and a luxurious Ebony fretboard. The tops have also been treated with Yamaha's A.R.E. process for a richer tone. Putting all of these features together gives you four outstanding new models from Yamaha.
