A Sensational New Taran Tirga Mhor Arrives!
We've been working with Taran Guitars for about a year now and are excited to have received our fifth Taran into our UK showroom. Rory Dowling, aka Taran Guitars, is based up in Pittenweem, a small fishing village on the east coast of Scotland and is consistently making the highest quality and sonically supreme guitars we have had the pleasure of getting our hands and eyes upon.
In addition to this, the top rim of the guitar features a lining of African Blackwood- massively increasing the responsive nature of the soundboard. This technique essentially channels more energy into the top of the guitar, creating a drum-like, receptive output.
We absolutely love the Taran Tirga Mhor model and couldn't resist bringing another one in. The Tirga Mhor is Rory's take on a 000 and also the product of a long discussion with his friend and guitar virtuoso Martin Simpson. The Tirga Mhor is designed with with an open voice enabled by the 12th fret bridge position with lots of 'spit' with its powerful attack. This guitar features a stunning African Blackwood 4-piece back, paired with an Adirondack Spruce top. With a subtle fan fret, it is an infinitely comfortable and responsive instrument, the ultimate player's guitar.
"The Dowling Signature is a series of my guitars which allows me to propel tonal developments and aesthetics. The DS8 is my 120th guitar." says Rory.
