Congratulations! What a beautiful instrument. How is it in terms of ease of playing compared to his Bouchet model? I’ve played (briefly) several of his models and the two things that’s are consistent are beauty of construction and tone. Andrea is truly an artist at both!
Keep us informed as to the instrument’s development and please Post a sample sound video?
Thank you Jack!
Compare to his Bouchet model, this one has more 'modern' sound and far more powerful. Unlike other coclea guitars i've tried, mine have wide range of color. So in this aspect probably it is closer to Bouchet model.
Set up for the left hand is also superb with action only 2.8 and 3.7mm. In my opinion, Tacchi build a far better instrument than Dominique Field (it means the Field has almost no advantage over Tacchi).
The tuning machine is Rodgers with sterling silver base plate. Rob gives me free upgrades of 24K gold plated ball pips and the rest of the parts. And the engraving pattern is also special and not available on his website catalogue. Plus cloche shaped black MOP button.
