The House of Ramirez has for many years (since 1882!) constructed the finest quality classical instruments played by many of the world’s top recitalists including the legendary Andres Segovia, Narciso Yepes, Julian Bream, Xuefei Yang, Alexandre Lagoya, Christopher Parkening, Kazuhito Yamashita, Liona Boyd, Laurindo Almeida, Alirio Diaz, Jose Luis Gonzales, Antonio Lauro, Oscar Ghiglia, John Mills …
The Professional 1a instruments are now subject to limited production. The Tradicional Model was designed some forty years ago by Jose Ramirez III. It has a special interior construction.
This shorter-scale example is a delight to play and to listen to, having all the hallmarks of a marvellous 1a. Ramirez really do have a special, sophisticated tonal palette of colours which, uniting with great volume and projection, yields a world-class concert sound that is distinctively their own.
