Description

Maton SRS-808 Semi Acoustic Guitar

The NEW Maton SRS 808 incorporates solid Blackwood back and sides and a Western Red Cedar top. The SRS 808 is an absolutely beautiful little guitar and combines the warm, full tones of Blackwood with the top end sparkle of Cedar.

A forward shifting of the X braces and the shifting of scallop peaks to nodal points around the soundboard help to enhance the vibration of the top. The shifting of the X braces also allowed the inclusion of a second, parallel tone bar which allows the scalloping of both tone bars, and spreads the load while reducing mass.

Adjusted bracing heights as well as a locked15 foot radius for the arch of the back, gave us the plate resonance separation we were looking for between top and back.

We now have the full, open, lower frequency response we were looking for as well as a crisp, well defined treble response.

The new 808 series sounds a whole lot bigger than a small bodied guitar should. We were hoping the end of this journey would produce a guitar that amazes the player at first strum, then continues to impress as each aspect of the sound of the guitar meets and surpasses the player’s expectation.

Maton Guitars - Derringers Music

Derringers Music are very proud to stock Maton guitars! Maton, based in Melbourne, have made their stamp world wide as a unique brand of acoustic and electric guitars that, while following traditional concepts, really are their own beast.

Maton pioneer using Australian timbers to build their instruments. While the majority of their guitars do use Sitka Spruce and East Indian Rosewood, almost all the guitar necks are made of Queensland Maple, and the backs and sides are often Queensland Maple, Victorian Blackwood or Queensland Walnut. The tops are often found to have Bunya, and Australian pine that matures in only 80 years (much more sustainable than Spruces 300 years) and has an earthy, lively and energetic tone to it.

The new SRS (solid road series) Maton guitars are leading the charge in affordable, all solid, high quality acoustic guitars. The SRS60C comes equipped with Matons AP5 system (one our personal favourite piezo based system) and Queensland maple back and sides. It stands as one of the best mid priced acoustic guitars I’ve ever played and has the prospect of maturing with age and getting better with every year in terms of tone. The SRS70C is there for the people that can spare an extra few hundred dollars for a guitar that really shines. The Blackwood back and sides give the guitar more punch and the AP5 Pro pickup system really makes your live performance shine and sound more natural than ever with the mic blend option.

There are a huge range of Maton Acoustic guitars available at Derringers music. There’s also a great range of their Electric guitars too.

For all things Maton, Derringers music is your place. Give us a call on 08 8371 1884 or SMS 0418-836-504 For deals and advice, or just a friendly chat. Otherwise come in to our store and hear them for yourself! You won’t be disappointed.
