This guitar was a little beat up upon arrival, but after some much needed TLC she played WONDERFULLY. There is a reason why I love Caparisons so damn much!!
This short little video is to appease those of my friends (and hopefully fans) that wanted to hear the Caparison Dellinger 7 FX-WM in Charcoal Black that I recently got!
I am running it direct into my ENGL Powerball MK.I which is going into a Marshall 2×12.
The microphone used to record the sound was a shotgun mic, so this is more a test of how the ENGL sounds with that microphone as well as some video effects that I wanted to test out as well! I hope you enjoy!
Caparison Guitars make instruments that are meant to be played.
Their higher-end lineup of instruments isn’t for the meek – the price tags are most definitely into the custom guitar territory, but ultimately the quality is absolutely there.
Imagine the Jackson custom shop instruments from the olden days, and that’s Caparison. No, really, the head of Caparison used to have his hand in that shop!
There is a specific reason why Caparisons are my favourite though; the necks are done by hand. Yes that’s right, the necks are hand made. So perhaps the price is justified if the guitar receives so much love and attention before it even hits an owners hands – and boy does it ever show. I fell in love with them in January when I went to the NAMM 2014 show – and my friend Matt Perrin from Threat Signal and Angel Maker also fell in love with them to the point where he got endorsed!
I will be getting one soon. I have been left with no other logical option.
Definitely check out these instruments if you can, or if you are a clever human you will check eBay and capitalize on how cheap some of them are being re-sold for!
