Yamaha LL-TA TransAcoustic Guitar - Brown Sunburst
Yamaha's TransAcoustic range gives you the LL-TA Dreadnought Electro-Acoustic Guitar. This innovative instrument comes loaded with Yamaha's A.R.E technology and even built in reverb!
This Yamaha LL-TA TransAcoustic Guitar in Brown Sunburst is a very innovative and inspiring Dreadnought bodied guitar from Yamaha's TransAcoustic series. If you have ever experienced an acoustic guitar being played in a large open sounding room then you will understand that it really enhances the tonal dynamics of your sound. The sound of the strings reverberating around the room adds extra depth and atmosphere to any riff, the only problem is not every player has an empty hall to play in!
Yamaha have taken a step with this LL-TA acoustic that other manufacturers seemed to have missed, yes there are pedals and amp modelling available for copying these much sort after hall echoes but what Yamaha have done is create an electro-acoustic with its very own built in organic sounding reverb! All you need is the guitar itself which means you have access to top quality pro sounding acoustic effects at the turn of a knob.
If you think Yamaha stopped there then you would be mistaken. Along with this excellent reverb feature you also get a built in chorus knob to add that hint of modulation or shimmer to your already atmospheric echo. This is achieved by using an actuator that is installed on the inner surface of the guitar back. This unit vibrates in response to the natural vibrations of the strings, these vibrations are then conveyed to the body of the guitar as well as the air in and around the guitar. This means that authentic reverb and chorus sounds can be generated from inside the body.
This simple yet innovative system is controlled using just three knobs. These adjust the level of effect applied at any time and the line-out volume level. Having the smaller controls does wonders for the overall sound too as it minimises holes in the body material to reduce any acoustic sound loss. The same goes for the battery box as this is integrated into the end-pin jack, a process that also means fewer holes in the body. Use this jack to bring out the amplified electro-acoustic qualities using a PA or amp.
Most importantly as a high end Yamaha premium acoustic instrument this is an all-solid wood guitar. Built using modified non-scalloped bracing you get greatly enhanced low end with the precious bright tone retained perfectly. Yamaha have treated this LL-TA with their A.R.E (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) wood reforming tech which ages the wood through cooking it. This process provides the wood with a richer more authentic vintage tone.
