Description: The PICKED NYLON is a one-of-a-kind nylon string guitar designed as an intuitive instrument. Its clean and soft tones are ideal for a variety of genres, from classical to electronic, as well as distinctive styles such as bossa nova and flamenco. Whether you’re creating movie scores or pop tracks, powerful effects and performance controls give you everything you need to sound perfect.
DEDICATED TO AUTHENTICITY
The sounds of PICKED NYLON were recorded with an instrument built by master guitar-maker Lisa Weinzierl, using rare preamps and a carefully controlled studio environment to capture the perfect tone. Six highly sought-after microphones were used to create three separate stereo setups, for a range of sound options that deliver everything from warm and organic to clean and modern.
TART CREATING GUITAR PARTS, FAST
PICKED NYLON comes with an expansive library of strummed chords, picked arpeggios, and delicate riffs, all performed with a range of playing styles by a top-class session player. The instrument’s broad range of song presets can be browsed by genre, for quick and easy access to the style you want. You can also record in your own parts using any MIDI controller, and then add in details like slides, fret noise, and harmonics to bring your compositions to life.
SCULPT YOUR OWN CUSTOM SOUND
With in-built sympathetic resonance, mod-wheel-controlled vibrato, algorithmic fret noises, and even the sound of a real guitarist breathing, PICKED NYLON utilises cutting-edge sampling technology to achieve a stunning level of realism. The instrument also comes with state-of-the-art delay, chorus, flanger, and phaser effects, as well as studio-grade EQ, compressor, and reverb tools, so you can fine-tune sounds to sit perfectly in your mix.
WHEN ARTISTRY MEETS INTUITION
To create the exceptional instrument behind the rich, clear tones of PICKED NYLON, visionary guitar maker Lisa Weinzierl used carefully chosen materials including maple and spruce, with centuries-old techniques inspired by traditional Cremonese luthiers such as Stradivarius. In this video you can learn about the philosophy behind Lisa’s approach to instrument creation, and take an in-depth look at the process that makes her guitars sound so special.
