This is Eric Vaarzon Morel, a great flamenco guitarist. He writes music, opera’s even, teaches at the conservatory of Amsterdam and always has a busy schedule with concerts and performances. Our friendship goes way back and last week he dropped by to demonstrate my 2A flamenco model. His rasgueado’s are so fast, the camera could hardly record them.
Otto Vowinkel is a household name in the classical guitar world; a renowned luthier with customers all over the world.
His instruments are physically light, easy to play, ultra-responsive and very powerful. His guitars have outstanding tonal qualities, evenness in sound colour and a perfect intonation.
Otto blogs about making guitars, guitarists who play his instruments, festivals he visits and ‘his’ guitar series Meesters op de Gitaar. He also writes about guitar maintenance.
