Separate names with a comma.
Haha I do that for all the time, even for wooden furniture. Cocobolo, being a rosewoods, have a unique smell.
JUST posted my Auteur/Aeolus/Vérité comparison if you guys would like some reading material Auteur/Aeolus/Vérité
Won't open for me BNC.
This will get you there!
Any chance the cables will be Litz??
Yep it's Litz!
Details soon, will take pics and get the new wire on the site later this week.
Just found out one of our dealers in Canada has a new Blackwood auteur. It's at Hivemind cables - and you can reach them by emailing Jerrold: firstname.lastname@example.org
I somewhat remember it being a really nice set, but anyways - we get emails fairly often for Blackwood auteur's, here's a chance to get a new one which we can't do anymore because we don't have blackwood in stock!
Shhh... Do you hear that?
It was the sound of someone's head exploding after reading that.
Good job Zach! LOL
Well, that was quick, just saw went to the site and its sold out now
Other woods are great (especially Cocobolo) but Blackwood is one of a kind. Not easy to imitate it's sonic "character"
So how would you describe the Blackwood character in comparison to the other woods? I'm a ZMF n00b and bought a Blackwood, which I love, and have a Verite on order in Ziricote, but I'm curious to hear more about the sonic characters. On the ZMF website and I think I've heard others say that the harder woods sound faster and the softer woods have a longer decay. Is there more to it than that?
D-18 (Mahogany, Softer Wood): Rounder Tone, Less Bass, Faster Decay, More Treble Sparkle
D-28 (Rosewood, Harder Wood): Glassier Tone, More Bass, More Sustain, More Veiled Treble
This is how I think of it. Most flatpickers prefer the D-18 for single note lead. But the most famous of them all plays a venerable D-28. I have one mahogany guitar and one rosewood.
The only other Auteur I did own and that can compare from memory is Teak. Compared to Blackwood, Teak was slightly more "thinner" sounding. Not that it was lacking bass but the higher frequency regions got slightly more emphasis due to the nature and resonant frequency of the wood. The Blackwood on the other hand showed a more "heavy" tone, notes that stroke you more and it presented a more sub-woofer like effect down low. And the speed was a little better on Blackwood even thought Teak sounded somewhat airier, like the sound was "breathing" more. I've long sold my Teak to get the Blackwood so can't remember any better, sorry
Thanks @felix3650. Sounds like I would like the sound of the Blackwood (which I have) better anyway.
