The Martin DRS-1 Electro-Acoustic is the traditional dreadnought shape giving the guitar a very recognisable style and feel. The minute you play the guitar acoustically you can really hear the Martin quality shine through with a huge bottom end without clouding the shimmering highs associated with solid wood dreadnoughts. The Top and sides are built from solid Sapele and project fantastically with great response. All in a very gig worthy 10/10 affordable Martin Acoustic.
Fishman Sonitone Preamp
The DRS-1 is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone preamp. The control comes from 2 subtly positioned wheels inside the soundhole offering volume and tone adjustments. Easy access allows you to dial in the correct amount of tone you desire. The Fishman Sonitone does a remarkable job of converting the natural tones of the electro-acoustic into a crystal clear acoustic experience.
The Martin DRS-1 Road series headstock adorns the C.F.Martin logo which is desired by so many guitarists. Attached are the chrome enclosed machine heads which guarantee to tune at all times. Add to this a black richlite bridge firmly seated on the Sapele top assuring seamless connection of tone and resonance. This Martin electro-acoustic is a perfect choice for the money from a huge brand which offers quality instruments at very affordable prices.
