MAMA ZAPPLESS fretless guitar - test by MARCELLO ZAPPATORE
The violin-making workshop MAMALAB Matthias Hammer - Galatone (LE), via Bachelet 9 - presents the fretless guitar (fretless) MAMA ZAPPLESS guitar 'signature' made especially for the guitarist Marcello Sapper. It is a fretless guitar sounds, and therefore by offering unique and expressive possibilities unimaginable for a normal guitar.
The pitch of the notes is not preset by the placement of buttons made of metal (in this case absent), but is achieved by correctly placement of the finger, as in classical instruments like the violin without keys, cello, double bass. This implies the obtaining of all sounds, not just those imposed by the Western tempered system.
The typical problem of instruments without keys compared to the corresponding instruments with keys of type 'normal', is the lack of sustain, which is here tried to compensate in every way using wood and very high quality components, like the body in Kaya, the top Cocobolo, the ebony fingerboard resting on a neck-thru neck, and a bridge Hipshot Hardtail.
In addition to the handle was Fernandes Sustainer pickup mounted that has the distinction of being able to indefinitely extend the duration of notes (with the same function of E-Bow), while the bridge is a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck. The maximum grip of tuning is guaranteed not only by the fixed bridge, the nut with graphite and Grover locking tuners.
