Baritone Guitar

A Danelectro baritone guitar recorded in three different varieties....

The story

This Danelectro baritone guitar mostly sits in a rack feeling ignored. With the advent of PianoBook however, I’ve decided to give new purpose to this oft overlooked but beautiful instrument. Sampled in minor thirds with open strings being used as much as possible, this unique library comes in three flavors. Clean Amp, Dirty Amp and DI (for anyone who wishes to add their own amp sim and IRs). Additionally, Adam has added a LP filter, a secondary distortion and an Amp Sim that includes a simple bass and treble EQ and a tremolo function. The lower strings are rich and rubbery with a nice mellow pluck. As you ascend into higher string territory, you’ll find this instrument takes on an almost ‘harpsichord meets sitar at a club and gives birth to a zither’ vibe. Enjoy!

  • Not my preference, but very well made!

    Even though I didn't like initially the sound of it, I can see that this is very well made and it has a lot of character for sure. Be sure to test the amp setting, because I feel that the clean setting is the least preferable for me. Inside you will find a lot of options though, like an EQ, drive levels, tremolo speed and more. The least favourite part of mine is that the dynamics are very limited, making it impossible to play smoother. I really believe though that there was a lot of effort put on this, and it shows!
