Like a lot of manufacturers Admira utilise far eastern production facilities in order to bring an affordable instrument to their product ranges. In this instance Admira have managed to really bring the essence of a Spanish guitar to the sub £100 price point. Each step of the manufacturing process is closely watched in order to ensure that build quality is maintained. Admira have a full compliment of Spanish trained luthiers who work tirelessly on the more expensive models in the range, and it is under the supervision of these technicians that the Chinese factory works.
At this price point the Alba has a full rich tone, it is extremely playable whether your preference is for casual strumming or the complexities of real Spanish guitar music.
At Chamberlain Music we always try to keep the Admira Alba in stock, so it is often in our showrooms to try or available for immediate dispatch should you place an order online.

Tom our resident expert says:
I have liked Admira guitars for ages and although the Alba has been part of their range for 2-3 years now, I have never picked one up for a play! I was surprised, yes, this is a student guitar and of course it is built to occupy a certain price bracket but all that said it looks really very smart, the wood grain is beautiful and nicely finished. It also has a good, clear sound and is very playable. Yes, there are more expensive guitars on the market but this is excellent value and sounds great. I would probably pop instore to compare this to the Yamaha C40 which is also very nice!
Have a look at the short video below which shows me playing it:
