Amalia Ramirez Interview

Here’s a great and very in-depth interview with Amalia Ramirez from Roseta Magazine, the magazine of the Spanish Guitar Society. Javier Suarez-Pajares discusses the history of Ramirez, Amalia’s personal involvement in some rough transitions during the 1980’s and her vision for the future of the Ramirez brand.

Coming Soon – Andy Culpepper

We have photos of a new guitar being made for us by American luthier Andy Culpepper – a beautiful African rosewood and cedar classical guitar that has an interesting story. Andy is building this guitar as part of a collaborative project with Washington luthier Chris Sobel.

Judicael Perroy plays new Ramirez Antigua

We were very happy to catch French guitar superstar Judicael Perroy in between tour dates for just long enough to record a video for us! As it happened, Amalia Ramirez was in town that day and had just brought us one of the new Antigua model guitars, so Judicael played it!

Duo Pacifica plays Almeida

Here’s Duo Pacifica – JohnPaul Trotter and Renee Henn – playing Laurindo Almeida’s arrangement of A Casinha Pequenina, with JohnPaul playing a beautiful 2017 Florian Blochinger cedar-top classical.

Irina Kulikova – Chopin

Irina Kulikova was curious to play the 1969 Jose Ramirez that had belonged to Andres Segovia, and we were more than happy to oblige! Here she is playing Chopin’s Vals No. 7 – it’s a stunning performance that really brings out the elegance that can be coaxed from this guitar.
