Thread Name: Martin Guitars - Too 'Boomy' ??
Subject: RE: Martin Guitars - Too 'Boomy' ??
My D35 is fairly boomy, I think, so I'm careful with it. I pay special attention to how it is miked. The nice thing is that it has a sweet tone even when played softly, so for me, it has it all. Good balance, good resonance, great tone, responsive... Sometimes I worry a little as to whether it's too loud and I have someone else play it to check- and LOVE it.

The first owner of my guitar told me that for the first year or so, his band didn't have a bass so they used this guitar as a bass. And I too sometimes do a bass line when an upright isn't around that holds up well, I think.

I have an old Conn that is well balanced but it doesn't have the bass I so love in my 35.
