Alhambra 10fp Flamenco Negra Guitar


Instrument Categories: ,

The Alhambra 10fp Flamenco guitar is our top level Alhambra Flamenco Negra instrument. Built with superior grade solid German Spruce top and solid Palisandro or Indian Rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard and bridge, the Alhambra 10fp has a somewhat warmer tone with the low action characteristic of flamenco guitars.

The Alhambra model 10f is also available in the Flamenco Blanca style as the Alhambra 10fc; this has Cypress  back and sides. Click here to read our post on the Alhambra 10fc Flamenco Blanca Guitar

Flamenco guitars are built for both a melodic and rhythmic purpose. Rather than quiet, introspective performance, Flamenco instruments need to keep up with and cut through the sound produced by singers, dancers, percussionists, and handclaps. These guitars are built to be bright and loud, yet with low action that provides a degree of natural string rattling. Golpeadors, or thin tap plates, are often installed on both sides of the strings to protect the top from percussive effects like rasqueados and golpe.

Traditionally, light woods like Cypress have been used for the back and sides on Flamenco Blanca models. More recently, Rosewood has been used for a warmer sound and use beyond a stricly flamenco context, and these are known as Flamenco Negra guitars. In either version, the geometry is the same – light construction and low action, to produce a lively, vibrant, responsive and loud guitar.

Setup: We will setup your Alhambra Flamenco guitar to suit your right hand attack. Flamenco guitars use much lower action compared to classical guitars. Flamenco action is generally set at 6/64 (2.3 mm) when measured at the 12th fret position. This enables the player to get lots of string slap or rattle when attacking aggressively. Low action enhances the signature flamenco percussive sound and facilitates fast, single note passages.
