Classical guitar - Aquila Special Tunings

The Orchestra series are the best solution to musicians who wish to expand the possibilities of the classical guitar and set it free from the mere role of soloist or duets / quartets etc where all the guitars have the same tuning (for educational purposes, compositions etc).

 

Guitar sets of  Orchestra series indeed have the peculiarity of being designed to be installed on traditional guitar. Starting from now, it is no longer necessary to have, for example, a terz guitar, an acoustic bass guitar, etc. All this is achieved without having to buy a new instrument, but using those already available.

 

This solution allows us to keep it cheap (point always welcome in schools and musical institutions) and simplicity of installation: by changing the set – keeping the same instrument – you can expand the musical range up to cover the entire series of Symphony Orchestra (From Double Bass to Violin).

 

Many advantages of this series go from musical education, to concerts to today composers.
