The Dreadnought guitar has always been loved by the majority of guitar lovers. As the standard classic guitar body, the most popular type of acoustic guitar, it is suitable for almost any musical style.
It is reported that almost all guitar lovers have held the "fatty" Dreadnought guitar. Let's let the editor take you to review this "ten thousand fans" guitar type.
The Dreadnought guitar is the most common type in the guitar, thanks to its large and thick barrel body, large resonance box, large volume, strong resonance, and thick bass.
Martin guitars among the world's top three acoustic guitar brands most often use the Dreadnought size to make guitars, especially suitable for friends who love classic sound, suitable for playing and accompaniment.
In 1916, C.F Martin designed the epoch-making Dreadnought body at the request of musical instrument retailer Oliver Ditson.
The Dreadnought body uses a larger resonant cavity, and at the same time expands the waist width of the two resonance sections, making the Dreadnought have a higher volume, more abundant bass and a wide sound field performance.
In line with the popular form of playing guitar accompaniment and vocals at the time, the high degree of fusion between the strings also catered to the gradually emerging method of string sweeping.
Then Dreadnought guitars were well received in the market. In 1931, Martin began to sell Dreadnought guitar under his own brand. In 1960, Gibson launched the "Hummingbird", after which all major guitar manufacturers began to join the production of Dreadnought guitar.
The role of the body shape in the formation of guitar sounds
To distinguish between different body shapes, we are mainly based on the shape and size of the body shape, the thickness of the box, and the degree of curvature of the waist.
The size and thickness of the body determine the air volume and sound reflection speed inside the cabinet.
The large-area panel has larger amplitude, lower vibration frequency, and open and deep sound. Because of its large contact surface, it can drive more air vibration, and the sound we hear is fuller. Conversely, when the area of the panel is reduced, its amplitude is reduced and the frequency is accelerated, and the sound becomes high, and the sound is more concentrated due to the small contact surface.
The reason for the thickness of the body is similar. The thicker the body, the more air it can hold, and the more profound the resonance transmission; the thinner the body, the faster the speed of sound reflection, and the clearer the sound we hear.
The shape of the body is usually determined by the ratio of the upper and lower parts of the waist. The existence of the waist is mainly to change the way the vibration moves in the guitar box. The more obvious the waist, the better the effect of gathering the intermediate frequency, and the sound is more concentrated and clear.
The characteristic features of the Dreadnought are the large box and the inconspicuous waist.
The body is large and deep, which means that the volume is loud and low. The sound is thicker than other body shapes. Therefore, it was very popular when rock and bluegrass music became popular, which is why Dreadnought body are so popular today.
