Guitar Sound Clips

We have had a lot of requests to hear what Zoe Guitars sound like. Below, are some sound clips from a variety of models and tone woods. We thought we should maybe provide some tasting notes that might help you single out individual characteristics with all of the tone woods, but decided to let your ears be the judge. 


To hear these tracks properly, we suggest that you plug in your favorite headset. sit back, and enjoy. 


All of the tracks were recorded with Pro Logic using two condenser microphones. One located at the sound hole and one at the 12th fret. A big "thank you" to the musician, Daniel Ma, and his amazing skills.
