WHAT IS A HUSH GUITAR?
Hush guitars are acoustic guitars. They are designed for players who want to practice or play in situations where traditional acoustic guitars can be too loud, such as in small apartments, hotel rooms, or late at night. They use acoustic and electronic technologies to produce quieter sound that can only be heard through headphones or an amplifier.
How does Hush Guitar work?
The Hush guitar features a traditional guitar body and neck, with strings designed to vibrate and produce sound. However, instead of using a traditional rosette and speaker to amplify sound, the Silent Guitar uses a built-in pickup system to convert string vibrations into an electrical signal.
The electrical signal is then sent to an onboard preamp and digital processing system, which allows the player to shape and modify the sound. This includes adjusting tone, volume, and effects such as reverb and chorus. The processed signal is then sent to headphones or an external amplifier for the player to hear.
How does the Hush guitar sound?
Although called silent guitars, silent guitars are not completely silent. They have an unplugged volume like an electric guitar, which means the sound is much quieter than a traditional acoustic guitar. This is because the vibrating strings of a silent guitar only move the air around them and do not have a body designed to amplify the sound like an acoustic guitar does.
If you play silent guitar with steel strings in a quiet room, you can hear the acoustic sound without an amplifier or headphones, retaining the original tones. Hush guitars with nylon strings may have a smaller acoustic sound that requires a quiet environment if you want to hear the sound without equipment.
There guitare Donner HUSH-I hush uses steel strings with featherweight covers. The custom round frets prevent finger cuts during practice and are very beginner friendly.
WHY CHOOSE A HUSH GUITAR? WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A HUSH GUITAR?
Hush Guitar vs Traditional Acoustic Guitar
Acoustic guitars have a traditional body that amplifies the sound created by vibrating strings, while silent guitars have no soundbox or rosette, which eliminates the traditional sound of an acoustic guitar. Usually, hush guitars are designed with a small body suitable for transport and travel!
Another significant difference is in volume. Acoustic guitars can project a loud sound and are great for live performances or jamming with friends. In contrast, quiet guitars have a volume limit and are just loud enough to be heard in a quiet environment. They are primarily designed for practice or recording, where the clean sound signal produced by pickups and preamps is desirable.
Silent guitar versus electric guitar
Hush guitars and electric guitars are different instruments designed for different purposes. While electric guitars are meant to be amplified, quiet guitars are meant to be played quietly, with or without amplification.
Electric guitars use pickups to convert string vibrations into an electrical signal, which is then amplified and output through a speaker. On the other hand, silent guitars use piezoelectric pickups or microphone systems to capture string vibrations, which are then converted into an electrical signal that can be amplified or recorded.
In terms of design, electric guitars often have a solid body, while silent guitars have a hollow body, like acoustic guitars. Hush guitars generally have a narrower neck and lower string action, which may make them easier to play for some people, while electric guitars often have a stronger body and longer neck.
Advantages of Hush Guitars
