ABOUT FLAMENKO GUITAR
The standard flamenco acoustic guitar is manufactured out of spruce and Spanish cypress. Its size is a little smaller and weight is less compared to a classical guitar. It sounds brighter and percussively. Initially, instrument was made with wooden tuning pegs. Many musicians still prefer these pegs to the modern tuning gears.
It's known that additional weight of the headstock can enhance sustain, but a smaller weight provides faster attack. That's why lots of flamenco guitarists still prefer wooden pegs.
Another feature of flamenco guitar is reduced strings height over the fingerboard compared to classical guitar. This allows more faster playing of picado passages and also may cause some fret buzz-also a typical sound of flamenco guitar.
