“Riemersma creates a beautifully shaped instrument, which has been erected flawlessly and manually. In wood types he is experimental and in the sound box is the secret of the vocal bar structure, inspired by the Hauser formula. To get a balanced instrument with an intensive accent on the the E and A strings give a sound that you can compare with a fretless bass guitar, the overall balance, including the projection, has the look of a piano. I do not know that much sound from a classical guitar. “
