If you ever get the chance to play a top-level classical guitar, you'll find most are very powerful with tons of volume and projection. Keep in mind almost all concert-level classical guitarists perform without amplification and they fill some good-sized venues with lots of sound.
Just want to make sure we don't critique/paint nylon string classical guitars with too broad of a brush....
i agree, i play both steel and nylon
here i post a video of my friend performing a new guitar by fructuoso zalapa
( i own 3 by him)
beautiful tone, sustain and intonation! and his is not playing classical music
