Avalon Guitars

Atkin Guitars was founded in Canterbury, England, in 1995. Since then we’ve grown steadily from a one-man operation building a handful of one-of-a-kind instruments each year to become one of the UK’s leading acoustic guitar makers.

Although Avalon will always be related to Lowden and named in one single breath, they have certainly made a name for themselves and created a unique identity. Avalon guitars are instantly recognisable by their use of bridge pins instead of a string-through bridge, creating a bit more what would be best reffered to as 'americana tone' without losing the mysterious, deep, Celtic 'piano-like' character.

This Auditoruem-size uses a combination of Indian Rosewood and Spruce soundboard deliver a strong rich deep tone with punchy trebles. This robust pairing of woods creates a guitar that is perfect for heavy strumming and flat–picking without compromising the lighter aspects of finger–picking.

 

... Steve hat mir bei seinem letzten Deutschland Besuch ein paar wunderschöne Gitarren vorgestellt - diese Auditorium konnte ich nicht gehen lassen....

Die Ard Ri ist die Top-Serie von AVALON. Für diese Gitarre hat Steve von AVALON wunderschön geflammtes Walnuß-Holz ausgesucht. Die Zeder-Decke ergänzt das Korpusholz mit warmen Mitten und seidigen Höhen. Durch die Jumbo-Korpusform kommen die Bässe ausgewogen zur Geltung - klar, tief - ein verlässliches Fundament für den Diskant. Um gleich Bühnentauglich zu sein, wurde Werksseitig ein K+K Pure Mini Pickup System eingebaut.  

 

AVALON at its best!
