Conde Hermanos guitars have been the industry standard for Spanish flamencos for many decades now. Conde has been the guitar of choice for the vast number of great players for many generations from Nino Ricardo and Melchor de Marchena to Paco de Lucia (who has recorded and concertized for nearly his entire career on Conde), Moraito, Gerardo Nunez, Canizares, Rafael Riqueni and the present generation’s Diego del Morao and many others. They are famously known for a dry, “woody” and very firm tone, capable of retaining clarity and punch even when driven to the extreme limits of speed – whether in picado, tremolo or rasguedo techniques – these guitars can hold up and deliver a reliable and consistent quality of tone. Felipe Conde has been building these guitars for almost 45 years – first with his father and uncle and later with his brother. Now Felipe has established his his own workshop with Maria Conde and Felipe Conde Jr.
