The Yamaha LL-TA TransAcoustic Guitar is from Yamaha's new acoustic guitar series. Based on their L-series, the transacoustic guitar is a completely revolutionary new concept, creating an instrument that produces the same incredible sound found in a great sounding room. The guitar features a solid Spruce top and Rosewood back and sides to produce bright warm tones with an incredible dynamic range.
The Yamaha LL-TA features a completely revolutionary new acoustic guitar concept. With an all solid construction and unique pre amp, the Yamaha recreates the incredible sound found from playing in a great sounding room. The guitar has a modified non-scalloped bracing that enhances the guitars low end whilst retaining its bright tone. Yamaha has also given the guitar a new battery box, integrating it into the end-pin jack to reduce the amount of holes in the guitar, preventing any acoustic sound loss.
Solid Engelmann Spruce, Rosewood Back and Sides
The Yamaha guitar features a solid Engelmann Spruce top that delivers loud tones with a broad dynamic range. The top wood is light, strong and produces crisp, colourful tones that are powerful, direct, and have an immediate articulation. The Spruce also retains its clarity, even when driven hard.
the guitar’s back and side panels are constructed from Rosewood for an incredibly smooth, warm tone with complex harmonic overtones. The Rosewood offers a very versatile tone whilst keeping it balanced, providing a strong clear presence. The back and sides also provide dark and complex characteristics, enhancing the guitars top and bottom ends.
Yamaha has treated the guitars top with their own original wood reforming technology. Known as acoustic resonance enhancement, and developed by Yamaha, this treatment ages the wood through cooking it and provides the wood with a rich, vintage tone.
Rosewood/Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard
The guitar’s neck is made from a 5-ply Mahogany/Rosewood combination and delivers a warm, mellow tone with complex highs, creamily thick lows, and good presence in the mids. The guitar’s Ebony fingerboard also offers a bright, warm tone with a responsive snappy and crisp attack coupled with a smooth sustain.
System70 Transacoustic, SRT Piezo Pickup
Yamaha’s System 70 Transacoustic preamp not only provides the ability to plug the guitar into an amplifier, but can also amplify the guitar itself. With an actuator installed on the inside of the back panel, the Piezo pickup transmits the vibrations from the strings to the actuator and then to the body of the guitar and the surrounding air. This generates an authentic reverb and chorus sound inside the guitar, amplifying it’s sound.
The preamp comes with three controls that are designed into the body to minimise the amount of holes in the guitars body, reducing the loss of the acoustic sound. A chorus knob and reverb knob provides adjustments to the amount of chorus or reverb the actuator produces, with the reverb knob offering a choice between room and hall. The third switch turns the actuator on or off, and if the guitar is plugged into an amp, then it controls the line out’s volume.
