Petersen Guitars

Model “Belcanto”

The model Belcanto is characterised by its immensely dynamic variety and a quick response, for any tone expression. The basses are tight and sonorous. They form a lasting basis. The centres hold a warm timbre, while the highs glimmer silvery-fine. The sustain is especially long and even.

«Guitarists with a dynamic touch and an advanced playing-technique will be amazed at the generous implementation of articulation.
Andreas Schulz, “Acoustic Guitar” 2/2004, the complete test can be found under “Press
