For players seeking a more traditional-style flamenco - lightweight, punchy and fast responding, these instruments by Hermanos Camps simply can't be topped. Brothers Jordi and Javier Camps have collaborated with acclaimed flamenco performer and pedagogue Manuel Granados who tests and certifies each instrument before it leaves their premises. Primary emphasis is insuring the lightest but solid build possible, incredibly comfortable low and easy setup (flamenco action with just the right amount of sizzle from controlled fret-buzz) and precise attention to the super clean "fit-and finish". Of course tone quality and balance are the ultimate concern and we are extremely proud to say that these are genuine Spanish-made flamenco guitars.
The "Primera A Blanca" model is a concert-level instrument weighing in at +/- 1250 grams. The best quality woods are chosen for this model, and a much more delicately constructed top (having mainly to do with the distribution of the thicknessing and strutting) is employed, making this a much more time-consuming instrument to build over the "Primera" model. It also features upgraded tuning machines, but it is the added work to the soundboard that provides for a broader range of musicality. Like the "Primera" model, the "Primera A" also has the characteristic qualities of a great blanca - snappy responsiveness, with the focus of the sound concentrated at the attack. With great ease this guitar can navigated in any musical direction - thanks to the great response, easy action and accurate setup (assisted by the re-enforced neck). Fantastic value for the money.
