Renting an instrument is a great option for all your musical needs. But which Guitar do you choose. Let’s have a look at each guitar type to help you decide which guitar is the one you rent!
Nylon String Guitars
The Classical or Spanish guitar are strung with nylon strings. This is often the perfect guitar for students and beginner guitarist. These guitars have a wide fret board to accommodate a beginner’s finger movement and the nylon strings do not hurt your fingertips as much. The sound produced by a Classical or Spanish guitar is much softer and works well for classical or Flamenco style music. These guitars need amplification through a separate mic pickup, if you want to perform in an event, concert or outdoors.
Steel String Acoustic Guitar
The popular choice of guitar, as they are suited to playing a variety of musical styles from Rock and Pop to Jazz. The metallic strings give a “brighter” and louder sound compared to the classical guitar. Those steel strings can be painful to play at first, but eventually guitarists develop calluses on their fingertips to protect them, and the guitar is often played with a pick. Acoustic guitars work well without amplification, however electric acoustic guitars can be easily plugged into amplifiers, making them a good choice for playing in concerts, or for recording.
Electric guitars are fun to play, they have unique and versatile sound, and can be played loud with amplifiers, or plugged into headphones for practicing. The fact that you need to plug them in, means that electric guitars always need more accessories than a Classical or Acoustic Guitar. Bare this in mind when choosing your guitar, and don’t forget that you will need amps, cables etc. The narrow fret boards also require a higher level of skill to allow for precise playing, but practice always makes perfect! Instrument rental Barcelona rents Electric guitar sets, which include all the accessories.
