Multiac Encore Nylon model offers incredible amplified nylon string sound with a very affordable price tag

Montreal, Canada (May 10, 2011) -- Made in Canada and introduced at this past Winter NAMM show in Anahiem, the Godin Multiac Encore Nylon is an instrument that offers players all the great features found in the renowned Multiac electro-acoustic line-up, including custom electronics and the ability to play in live & loud band settings with virtually no feedback. The Encore is also the most affordable Multiac model to date with a suggested list price of $995.



The Multiac Encore Nylon is equipped with Godin custom electronics. This easy to use Blendable Dual Source System features an undersaddle transducer as well as two acoustic soundboard sensors, with the ability to blend one into the other. These soundboard sensors add depth, warmth and are excellent to magnify the percussive nature of flamenco players. The Encore is ideal for guitarists looking for an incredible, amplified nylon string sound and feel, all in an instrument that is a no-hassle dream for sound engineers to soundcheck.

The Multiac Encore nylon string, also features a 25 ½” scale and a comfortable 1 7/8” nut width, making it easy for electric steel string players to transition to nylon strings. This model features a chambered silver leaf maple body with a solid cedar top, natural semi-gloss finish, as well as a dual source preamp with volume, treble, mid, bass and blend control sliders. The mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with Godin’s “Ergocut” shaping technique, which bevels the edges of the fingerboard inwards for a worn-in feel and extremely comfortable playability.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
