At HANIKA craftsmanship is understood as custom work and sound as art. A guitar from the famous Baiersdorf manufacture is a symbol of quality and craftsmanship tradition. Since 1953 it has been the basis for the success story of the company, combined with trend-setting innovations. Master plucked instrument maker Armin Hanika took over the company from his father in 1993 and has been building classical guitars of outstanding quality ever since.
The HE Torres model is part of Hanikas’s professional line, representing the peak in guitar-making, sound, and craftsmanship. This instrument is designed and composed to meet the individual needs and requirements of demanding guitar virtuosos. The finest choices of wood in conjunction with master craftsmanship and the use of the noblest and highest-quality materials result in a unique piece of sound art.
Back and sides made from expressive grained Violet Rosewood with a soundboard made from finest spruce wood. The Cedro neck has been reinforced several times at its core with rosewood/mahogany, including the heel. The asymmetrically weighted domed spruce-wood soundboard optimizes efficiency. The HE Torres delivers excellent dynamics, a warm and substance-rich sound, crispness, and good responsiveness. The materials used for this classical guitar along with its workmanship and sound mean that it is able to meet the highest demands.
The pierced rosewood-maple-Macassar head and noble designer tuning machines by Nicoló Alessi underline the high demands that the HE Torres makes on quality. This classical guitar impresses visually with its body that has been finished with a UV-cured high-gloss varnish and a soundboard that has been elaborately hand-polished with shellac.
