I have alto and tenor "The Martins", really like them although the intonation isn't the best. I got them on the advice of my teacher, he plays one and says they're the best value going. But question - I've seen many posts extolling the great rich mellow "Martin Sound" and I've also seen numerous references and comparison tests by reputable SOTW members which describe Martins as best suited for rock n' roll. Can anyone explain this? Or is there no commonly accepted opinion on the sound of a Martin? Or maybe the whole "sound" thing is a myth. Can anyone enlighten me?
