Alkis Classical Guitar

A classical guitar from guitar luthier Alkis Efthimiadis...

The story

Alkis Efthimiadis is a former mathematician and guitar luthier.
I am originally from Portugal and in 2011, I flew to Athens to visit his workshop and try several of his amazing instruments.

I bought this guitar and still play with it to this day. It is my main instrument as a classical guitarrist. In 2021 I decided to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of this trip of mine.

This is also my first ever sampled Kontakt Instrument.

I recorded it using a IRig Acoustic Stage Microphone.
I sampled 3 velocity layers (p,mf,f) with 3 round robins each.

  • Lovely Classical tone and fantastic first attempt!

    This guitar has a boat load of character and has many uses. To improve, I think a bit more noise reduction would help the low clunks and a release envelope to extend the sound would help. Overall though an amazing first effort!
