Are you looking for a new acoustic guitar? You are in the right place. Let me guess, you don’t have any idea about what guitar which you should buy, right? As we know, there are two types of acoustic guitar which commonly exist in this world. The first is a standard acoustic guitar, and another one is the electro acoustic guitar. Here, if you want to buy an acoustic guitar, you need to consider your need. If we talk about the difference, then you will find a simple thing which makes these guitars distinct. We will share with you on the difference of these acoustic guitars below.
What is the difference?
There is one significant difference that you can see, some of you may already know about it. If you take a look on an acoustic guitar, there is no on-board pickup like the electric guitar has. In this case, where the sound is produced become the key. For non-electric guitar – is an acoustic, the sound is produced from the sound box. The resonance is produced and reflected by the hollow inside the guitar. We need to admit, that the sound is so natural. But, you can’t lift up the sound which is made. Why? Because it is limited.
On the other hand, a guitar which has an additional equipment like the electro acoustic guitar, will solve the problem of sound which you can find in the conventional one. Definitely, you can adjust the volume. Whether it sounds low or high, you can just adjust it. Here, the sound is boosted by a tool which is called amplifier. So, it does have no limit on the volume that it can produce. Besides, there are some effects that you can also add to the produced sound. The sound will be able to be like the electric string guitar can do. Such as delay, reverb, distortion, loop, etc.
Can the electro acoustic produce sounds without amplifier?
Yes, of course. This kind of acoustic guitar is also able to produce sound even though there is no amplifier. There is a common misconception which says that electric guitar can only produce sound by using amplifier. That’s a common mistaken that you may hear also. Again, because the significant difference is only in the pickup tool, then other things are similar with the acoustic guitar. So, this guitar can also able to produce a natural sound.
Is there any information about this guitar?
There is one thing that you should know about the sound if you use amplifier. Here, when you set your guitar at high volumes, there is a possibility to get feedback. In this case, the sound which is produced by an electro acoustic guitar will be not pure. This means, the sound that is produced by the pickup, will also be affected by the resonance from the hollow. So, to avoid this thing happens, you should consider the volume. Besides, you can also put a rubber plug which fits into the hollow. Besides, there is another thing which is called feedback buster. That tool will help you to reduce the problem of the sound.
