Oscar Schmidt OE30 review
This miracle is created by manufacturer who is well-known for his attention to details and his high quality products.
Do you want to be reminded of the classical guitars of the 50’s? This semi-hollow guitar provides the resonance comparable to the one obtained from the acoustic guitars, and at the same time it presents the great power of an electric instrument.
Semi-hollow guitars are the “old school” instruments, and their tuning usually requires much more time and skill than the usual solid body guitar does.
The sound quality of a semi-hollow instrument can be estimated during playing. And if it is tuned properly, you will hear all colors of the world!
Actually, this classical guitar has a very modern “stuffing”. Instead of a complex vintage bridge, the manufacturer implemented the standard Tune-o-Matic Bridge. This is much more convenient for both the user and the manufacturer as this is a more practical solution. Tuners perfectly “hold” the melody under the normal conditions.
The installation of 2 humbuckers (not, for example, soap bubbles that are usually set up to these guitars) is not standard, but a brilliant idea for a semi-hollow guitar. This gives the tone a “solid-body” performance, but with “semi-hollow feeling”. Due to this the Washburn Oscar Schmidt OE30 Delta King became easier to get used to and it gives a vast range of tone configurations.
Given the above, the guitar sounds more aggressive, while retaining many semi-low qualities. Those who want to play a mixture of hard rock, blues and maybe even jazz, will find this Washburn Oscar Schmidt OE30 semi hollow body electric guitar to be quite an interesting solution.
Everyone can tune the sound and the sustain without any problems as two Washburn humbucker pickups will help to perform this task. The selector switch between the three modes allows you to use the humbucker on the fretboard, on the bridge or on both at once to get a rich sound.
When it’s unpugged, it sounds almost like an acoustic guitar, providing the necessary volume of sound you need. But the tone is greatly enhanced when the instrument is amplified.
Perfect for being used everywhere with minimal adjustment
Whether you jamming at home with a small amp or getting your best rocking out on the stage, this model will work like a dream as well as when it is plugged into an audio recording interface. You can get the really great tones without serious adjustment, just take it out of the box and go ahead!
