Ovation says...”More than fifty years ago, Charles Kaman brought his idea of a modern guitar to the world market. As an ambitious guitarist, he realised his dream and founded his own guitar company, Ovation Guitars, with a difference. He was inspired by traditional standards but he was also equipped with a pronounced openness towards new technology, which he owed to his roots as a developer and manufacturer of helicopters.
Kaman dared to approach guitar building in a way that polarises to this day. A special fibre-plastic composite (Lyrachord®) combined with a parabolic body shape (Roundback®) were the ingredients for a completely new sound experience in the already crowded acoustic guitar market.
The final breakthrough was made possible by the electro-acoustic version of the Ovation guitar.
Here too, Kaman’s experience in the aerospace industry led the way for a development that resulted in the first piezo-electric pickup. This made it possible for acoustic guitarists to remain present even in a full band arrangement, or for soloists to perform at large open-air events without sacrificing sound quality.
This unique sound, coupled with the playing comfort of an electric guitar, still makes the Ovation a must-have for guitarists in clubs and stadiums alike.”
