If you want to know and feel how this Marvi looks and sounds like, we invite you to watch and enjoy the included Free Flamenco guitar video lesson by our maestro Rezar Dominguez. This Free Flamenco guitar lesson consists of an intro enabling you to feel the sound and playability of this Marvi, as well as a beautiful Buleria "Hacia Mi" composed by Gerardo Nuñez.
Andrés D. Marvi, born in 1956 in Germany, devoted himself to designing his traditional handmade guitars with the aim of creating his own sounds. In 1984 till 1992, Marvi took part in guitar courses guided by José Luis Romanillos. Soon his talent as a craftsman was confirmed as well as his manual dexterity and capability. Since 1988, Andrés Marvi is living in a small Spanish village near Granada where he currently is making his instruments. In 2003 during a master class in Munich, Flamenco phenomenon Gerardo Núñez first saw and played a Marvi guitar. The admiration and astonishment of Gerardo towards its sound and easiness when played, were so obvious to him that he now owns a Marvi blanca and a Marvi negra. Gerardo Núñez used his Marvi guitars on his newest CD as well as his well known instructional DVD "La Guitarra Flamenca" by Encuentro, please have a look at our production pages. Other top players like Aniello Desiderio, Goran Krivokapic, Graham Anthony Devine… all play and record with these amazing instruments.
Led by his goal of creating his own sound, Marvi was able to blend the influences of several building styles into a thoroughly modern version of the Spanish Guitar, resulting in a very exceptional, differing and personal construction setup: the sides are doubled for strength, the elevated fingerboard makes it very easy to play, his necks go all the way to the sound hole. Marvi’s personal setup not only adds strength, but also improves sustain, timbre ands responsiveness particularly from the 12th to 20th fret.
This exceptional Marvi negra has a very flamenco feel, action & tone with quick punchy bases and clear beautiful trebles. The woods for this Marvi negra are specifically selected, the old aged Rio on the sides & backs is absolutely gorgeous. A very soft action allows for very expressive playing. This Marvi negra is definitely not like some negra’s sounding like a classical guitar with tap plates on them. No, this Marvi negra is a raspy, growly flamenco guitar and it is easy to understand why one might want to join others in playing one. Truly a cutting edge negra.
