We have professional recordings made of all the guitars that come through our hands, and make them available on youtube. You will find this an invaluable resource-- great performances and a vast selection of classical and flamenco guitars from 1761 to the present represented. Hours of music.

Thanks for that.

When I rediscovered my guitar building hobby and was planning what plan to use (from Courtnall's book) I listened to lots of the mp3 on your old site (a decade or more ago) and was particularly taken by the three Santos Hernandez sound samples a few related ones such as Esteso and early Ramirez recordings and ever since have been attempting to go in that kind of direction. So I for one find such compilations useful especially where there are different styles (flamenco/classical) played on the same instrument.

It is too simple to say just "Thank You". I would like to point out the educational aspect of these recordings. It is of speccial importance to us who live and study guitar in a, say, "distant places". Thanks to these recordings students of guitar may learn on gitars and makers that they know sometime only from written/printed sources.

Thank you so much.
