Thermal Top, a prestigious series.
Takamine guitars from the Thermal Top series are handcrafted in the Pro Series factory, which has been building precision and quality instruments for over five decades now. These guitars have become the choice of choice for many professional musicians of all styles. Tables in solid cedar, solid spruce or koa give real versatility to this series. So you can play soft arpeggios then chain with powerful chords. The difference between the types of wood lies in the warmth of the sound and its brilliance.
What does Thermal Top mean?
The term Thermal Top or TT is a revolutionary technology invented by the Takamine R & D team. This technology consists of drying the wood of the table so that it reaches 0% humidity. Then, this table is rehydrated gradually up to about 6%. The wood fibers will therefore be tightened little by little in order to stabilize it. This process allows, in a way, to accelerate a process that would have taken several years to become "natural". The end result is a much more stable guitar confronted with variations of climate and temperature.
The integrated CT4B II preamp.
Before starting any manufacturing process, the Takamine R & D team gathers and analyzes the needs of the musicians. Manufactured following this principle scrupulously, the guitars of the Thermal Top range have been equipped with the CT4B II preamp system, paired with the Palathetic mic for unparalleled sound quality. A 3-band equalizer, a volume control and a tuner have also been integrated. So you have all the tools to refine your sound!
As its name suggests, the Legacy series includes all the guitars that have made the reputation of Takamine since its creation: they are legendary guitars.
