Ovation Guitars Confirmed For Acoustic Show

Post Image

Ovation Guitars has confirmed that it will exhibiting at The UK Acoustic Guitar Show the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd of April 2022 at the Liverpool ACC as part of The UK Music Show.

The UK Music Show will include The UK Acoustic Guitar Show, The UK Bass Guitar Show, The UK Drum Show and The UK Electric Guitar Show, all in their own product relevant halls, along with their own corresponding live stages for guest to enjoy over the weekend.

The Ovation Story

Even after more than 50 years, Ovation guitars are still one of the most advanced, forward-thinking and unique designs in the acoustic guitar market. In fact, unlike other acoustic guitars or acoustic-electric guitars, Ovations are truly “electric-acoustic” guitars. These are instruments where the advanced design and integrated electronics are not an after-thought, not a modification to an instrument built to be acoustic… not a compromise to an entirely different focus.

On Ovation guitars, the carefully thought out electronics are part of the design focus from the very beginning. These instruments were Made For The Stage, and as such, they incorporate the latest and most purposeful pickups, preamps and design integration possible. Add to this the sophisticated body design, space-aged materials and superior top construction and you truly have a revolutionary instrument ready to command attention on any stage, in any concert hall or performance venue.

On the banks of the Farmington River in new Hartford, Connecticut, there’s an old New England brick building that was home to Ovation Instruments and of course, the original acoustic roundback guitars.

Ovation was a subsidiary of the Kaman Corporation, an aerospace company employing more than 2,700 employees, where more than 25% were scientists, engineers and technicians. Charles Kaman, the President and a guitar enthusiast, decided that his company could apply its technology to the age-old art of guitar making.

In 1966, after 18 months of testing and research, the Kaman engineers concluded that the most efficient shape for a guitar back is semi-parabolic (like that of an orchestra shell, amphitheater, radar reflector or even the human ear). The sound such a shape produced from any given energy input was, they found, measurably richer, fuller, deeper and more constant from top to bottom of the scale.
