Maybe its what my ears are used to but I like the brighter sound of the Maton. The Martin in comparison sounds dull to me.

Martin has more depth, good full sound. Maton has loud bright string (ier) sound. I vote, Martin.

Love Maton guitars mostly cause my hero Tommy Emmanual plays one however, I own a Martin D-35 & a Martin D-41. I have to say that the Martin seemed to me to have more of everything across the tone spectrum. I think I heard them saying that the Maton had new strings??? HOW IS THIS FAIR???????? Maton had a brighter sound which I don't particularly like so glad I have what I have. I also own a Cole Clark Fat Lady 3 with rosewood back and sides, so it is a cousin to the Maton I guess you could say?

Maybe using guitars of the same tonewoods & same price point would be a lot more useful! Maybe if you compared the Maton C.S. Classic to the Clapton! Still much more affordable than the Clapton.

Robert Falconer

i did this comparison Between the Eric Clapton Martin vs Maton All Blackwood.
To my surprise, the Maton was fuller in sound,
Then plugged in The Maton pickup system is far superior.,
Ive played everything and nothing compares to Matons and Cole Clarks, plugged in.

Julian Smith

Hard to split but we'll done guy's for a great comparison review. Much appreciated.

David Carter

They have different tone woods and body depths. Insane how much louder the Martin gets even with the depth disadvantage. Both are beautiful!

Sonically the Martin wins this comparo, but honestly I prefer the 000-18 to both of these.

i think maton is designed for fingerstyle and it soundssss wayyyyyy better when pluggedin

Hi Shane & Dr Rick I think we are the real winners thanks for doing something on acoustics. Its great to see a comparison between Maton and Martin. I do acoustic gigs all the time, It would also be great to hear the difference plugged in Maton are my benchmark for live amplified acoustic sound. Perhaps a Maton, Martin, Taylor shoot out or similar it would be great to hear your opinion through Takamine and Cole Clark also are great perhaps a series of videos are in order 🙂 Cheers and thanks again!

A Maton Jumbo would have more bottom end and a fuller tone, the 808 is made primarily for fingerstyle playing. Having rather short fat fingers I find the Martin neck too wide, particularly for using the thumb on the low E string. The Maton neck is much more comfortable, however Larivee's are even better.

先講maton 顆粒表現很好 中高頻的表現十分優異,音色乾淨且清晰。

再來是martin 共鳴表現很好 均衡的頻率分佈 音色渾厚且溫暖

現場與收音有落差,透過音響或耳機還原的聲音,聽起來Maton比較悅耳,因為麥克風收音的時候,聲波要越乾淨越好,所以這對共鳴比較強烈的吉他來說反而收起來的聲音就濁濁的,這也是maton的拾音器很好發揮的原因之一。
音色兩者的特點截然不同,martin以老練道地的傳統民謠風味
maton則以小鮮肉的姿色出場

以上為我主觀分析,僅供參考

Tommy Deville

please throw away your darn pick, these models are made for fingerpicking/fingerstyle for gods sake!

LadyCroMag BuntCitch

Tommy Emmanuel cannot be wrong!!!

enspike

Stupid strumming. The Maton would sound 10x better if you play fingerstyle songs like Tommy Emmanuel tunes.

Fred Lim

I was never a Martin guy. I've owned Goodall, Bourgeois, Santa Cruz, multiple Taylors but never a Martin. However, whenever I watch some comparison videos, Martin almost always seems to win. To me, Martin is the sound that will never go out in style. It's so American. Wouldn't mind having a Martin D-42 or an OM.

This proves many guitar players don't know anything about guitars and just listen to some random review. Maton guitars are made for plugged live performances. Bet the Martin doesn't even come close when compared with the internal pick up system. Most of the non professional gigs aren't played with an microphone in front of the guitar...

Mike Arcuri

Not 100% sure of materials but if this is rosewood vs. maple, it’s not a fair comparison. Rosewood is deeper sounding and favors the low end while Maple is brighter and favors the high end. This is like comparing an apple to an orange.

Carlcarolos

Did they both use the same strings (brand, size)? Makes a huge difference if they did not.

Henry Lowenstein

This silly. You aren't comparing apples to apples!! Different shapes, different woods, probably different strings. You can't compare. They are made for different purposes. You didn't even discuss the top woods and the difference that makes. Just silly.

2drsdan

Go back and listen to the sustain when the playing stops.
Maton just quits while the Martin keeps singing.

Dr. Turkey

The Maton is a great guitar but as soon as he started strumming that Martin it was over

Peter Bird

Martin by a mile, though I will always have a soft spot for the Maton

Nick Robb

Martin wins hands down. The maton has no character

Rich 33
Interesting comparison. Appears I'm not hearing what most others are. To my ears using quality Audio Technica phones, the Maton has a very thin tone with virtually no bottom very similar to most Taylor 600's while the Martin sounds so compressed and listlessly numb. If I was stuck for all eternity with either of the guitars used in this demo, I would take the Maton hands down over that 000-28. I don't understand why the Martin sounds so bad (to me). Old strings? Different pick? My 2013 000-28EC as well as other EC's I've played over the years are extremely… Read more »

Maton has “Handmade for the world stage” as a mission statement. The pickup on the Maton is what makes the guitar perfect for the stage. Of course a rosewood guitar will sound deeper than the Queensland Maple. Silly comparison with just a mike. Choose a Martin with a Fishman pickup and try this again. This is really silly.

Bob Thomas

I FEEL THE MATON IS A FINGER PICKER AND THE MARTIN IS FOR CHORDS IN GENERAL IMO. WHAT WOULD BE THE TAYLOR EQUIVALENT TO THE 808 MATON. STILL WANT AN 808 SOME DAY BUT NEED TO GET BETTER TO JUSTIFY THE EXPENSE. PLAYING A. GIBSON ES355, TELE WITH TEXAS SPECIALS THRU A BLUES JR, TAYLOR MINI MAHOGANY E AND AN OVATION SHALLOW ADAMS ELETE. HERE IN DENVER, CO USA ALSO ENJOYING THE BLUES CHANNEL, GA DAY MATES.

Andy Chang

Wow still feel the difference
Martin’s sound is more solid

Phillip Buckley

I feel like a big part of buying a Maton is their built in pickup system. You should have done both mic/ pickup comparisons on these two

chillymeatball

i love Matons but the Martin did it for me in this demo. I wonder how the Maton would stack up if it had no electronics onboard, like the Martin
