“Ce qui est frappant avec ce système c’est sa transparence. Le test est simple : on met le volume à zéro puis on augmente progressivement. Le volume change, pas le son. C’est celui de l’instrument simplement amplifié. Je cherchais le Graal depuis longtemps, je l’ai enfin trouvé ! ” Lulu Zerrad
Ce système me change la vie ! En corrigeant avec un Headway, j’arrive à avoir à fort volume un son pratiquement identique au son naturel du Oud. C’est génial 🙂

C’est génial, naturel, hyper dynamique avec beaucoup de sensations proches du naturel. Pour le oud, je crois que c’est la solution la plus fidèle qui existe !
