Lowden Guitars are made in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland, by George Lowden one of the worlds top guitar makers. The Lowden 12 string we use has an exceptional light and bright tone. The combination of this with Linsey’s ‘cello which was made in 1790, gives the full round sound and textures that have become associated with our music. We primarily use this 12 string guitar, and a similar Lowden 6 string, in DADGAD semi open tuning which again contributes to the unusually full sound we have for a duo. This Lowden 12 string also works very well for finger picking, and with a capo up the top end it becomes a different instrument in addition.
