Video review of our Stratocaster HM Set.
Video review by various Singaporean musicians playing different genres.
We have successfully created a hybrid between Hank Marvin's 34346 and his 1961 stratocaster.
The sound is now somewhere in between.
After comparing with countless recordings of Wonderful Land versions on youtube - our HM is
still the closest sounding to the original 1962 EP (properly recorded) version - which was recorded with the 34346 stratocaster. The Shadows have recorded the same song with different
guitars over the years. None of the other recordings played by Hank Marvin sound like the original.
We have managed to produce the sound with just reverb - no echo.
