Martin OM-21 vs OM-28. Which do you prefer & why?


kcnbys 02-12-2016 12:09 PM

I prefer the sound of the OM-28. Crisper, a bit brighter, with slightly better note separation with the OM-28, which is a bit more pleasing to my ear.

Martin D-28 comparison videos
 
Here are 2 2016 D-28 guitars back to back, without being re-strung. There is a high probability that one set of strings is slightly older than the other.



Here are the same 2 guitars, recorded immediately after being strung with brand new sets of Martin MSP7200 strings.



In both cases, the audio was recorded with a Rode NTG-2 direct to disk with no processing, effects or EQ. Same guitars, same room, same pick, same playing style. What are you hearing?

Martin OM-28 vs CEO7
 
Which do you prefer?

Jusca 03-24-2016 10:49 PM

The OM-28 sounds better to me. It sounds clear and the notes sound more defined and distinct. The CEO-7 sounds like it's choked and muddy.

The 0-18 sounded slightly brighter, the 00-18 slightly fuller. I liked the 0-18 a bit more even though I don't care for really bright guitars, but because it would be a nice complement to a D or 000/OM.

MaurysMusic 04-12-2017 09:01 AM

Thanks SS. Good point. I'll bet lots of players looking to compliment a Dread can find good reason to add an 0 to their stable.

I guess I prefer the opposite. To my ears the OM-21 has better projection and a bit more "presence" to it.

I agree with the first part. But I prefer the 00-18, as it's a bit more balanced and the 0-18's bass is a little lacking (duh!)

BTW, I appreciate the way Maury does guitar comparisons. Instead of fancy and complex songs, he keeps it simple, which to me is actually better for comparing different models.

Thanks! I appreciate your sharing your opinion & your kind words.

We believe that the demos should show of the guitar in a neutral way. Keeping with the same chords & same mic (and placement) you can always open another browser to compare a different guitar.. and within reason, you'll remove inconsistencies from the comparison.
