Crafter TMC 035/N Acoustic Electric Guitar
The good-looking solid Engelmann spruce top receives a deluxe treatment of pearl purfling and a similarly inlaid rosette. The back and sides aren’t truly laminated rosewood, as the innermost veneer is mahogany or similar. It’s anybody’s guess what constitutes the in-between ply.
The TMC035 proves a very pleasant, open-voiced performer, with supple dynamics and a sparkling yet warmishly underpinned tone.
The gain- packed LRT-Pro system proves a sympathetic powered partner, and our sample’s inter-string output balance is refreshingly spot-on.
The Scoop slider, dipping up to -6dB at 1kHz, is a particularly useful adjunct to the main 500Hz EQ slider for reining back unwanted mids, while the treble and bass bands are efficient at tempering the instrument’s brightish timbre when required and fleshing out the low-end respectively.
The auto-chromatic tuner works accurately, and the ‘OK’ legend denoting in-tune status is a matey touch.
