Yamaha F310 Review

If you loved music and decided you wanted to learn more, well for most, the first best thing to do is learn how to play an instrument. However, deciding what instrument you want can be quite tricky.

There are a lot of music instruments in the world. Surely you’ll have your own hard time choosing. But to ease your dilemma maybe, you start with probably the one of the most common instrument played in the world: the guitar.

Now, choosing your first guitar is also critical. It is just one instrument but there a lot of existing kinds of guitars. To cite one example is the acoustic guitar.

Acoustic guitars are very familiar. It’s an instrument that is easy to travel—no additional amplifications whatsoever, unless. It is also an instrument that we often see musicians use when performing.

Most of the time they use the acoustic guitar to create new songs as well. I can even say it is the universal music instrument. Portable and easy and it’s a great source of joy when hanging out with friends. Say, around a bonfire singing your favorite songs?

If you want to find the perfect first guitar for you, there are a few things you must consider before getting one. You don’t want to hug a huge and out of tune guitar sitting on your lap and strum it like you’re tickling a grizzly bear.

I know, because I have been there. I am not a guitar player, but I have learned a few basic chords and can play a few songs. So I can tell these few tips in finding your perfect first guitar.

First, it should be perfect for your size. Like I already said, you wouldn’t want a huge piece of hollow wood on your lap. It would be difficult for you to strum the guitar and need I say it is painful to your wrist and arms.

Also, you don’t want its neck to be too long. Learning the chords is already difficult enough without the struggle of reaching the right fret to press. You would rather have an instrument that helps you in learning, right?

Second, the guitar should have a sturdy frame. It should be able to hold the pressure from the tightly suspended strings. Particularly in the joint where the neck is attached to the body of the guitar. You must also consider the quality of the wood used for the guitar’s body as it can significantly affect the quality of its sound.

Speaking of, the last and of course the most important thing to consider before buying your first guitar is the sound. You want to make sure as a beginner that you get inspired by the sound your guitar makes.

It is what makes you want to keep learning and playing the instrument. Say, a connection should be made once you hear it. It’s a lot like finding your soul mate. But aside from that, it should also be able to maintain its tune. It’s so much like maintaining a relationship.Choosing your guitar is up to your personality and taste. But for beginners, Yamaha F310 Gig Maker Package is probably the right thing for you and me.

Yamaha GigMaker F310 Review: The package

For starters, the product is already a package. It includes tuners like a pitch pipe as well as a capo, picks, strings, strap, gig bag and even an Instructional DVD.

Everything that you might need to start is right in the package for you. It’s a product made for beginners. The tuner helps for when it goes out of tune. But Yamaha F310 hardly goes out of tune. The high-quality machine heads keep the strings in tune there, so you don’t have to spin it back to its right tuning constantly.APPEARANCE

Yamaha F310 Review: How it looks?

Regarding design, you can say it’s your standard acoustic guitar, but it is very appealing. I suppose it comes in different colors and gradients to suit your taste. The smaller and slimmer scale is perfect for any beginners, so that is a helping element for comfort.

The neck is not too long, and it’s very comfortable to hold. It is manageable, and the shorter neck creates lesser tension in the strings, so it is easier to strum and creates a really decent sound.The whole frame looks sturdy to me. The materials used are pretty impressive. It is made up of spruce, laminated, rosewood, nato, and meranti—all helps with improving the quality of the sound it gives.

I’ve read comments, some saying they’ve owned a Yamaha F310 for over ten years and it still sounds pretty decent. Meaning, along with the bag, traveling and being exposed to harsh environments will be no problem for this product. It is very durable.SOUND

Sound Quality Of  Yamaha Gigmaker F310

I listened to a few guitarist play using Yamaha F310. I can say that its decent sound is guaranteed. You can just hear it resonate clearly. It is appealing and soothing to your ears although I think I can hear too many vibrations. I like it best played for finger style because the sound is much deeper and bolder. I believe that it suits best for mellower sounds, but it also looks great for other genres, even rock.

Value

Considering its price range, it were still quite expensive but compared to other professional guitars; this is the best buy you’re looking for. Cheaper but it comes close to the sound a solid wood soundboard makes.

Balanced sound, quality materials used for manufacturing, excellent for beginners and the undeniable durability. It is a soul mate you can grow old with through your journey.Perfect for beginners whose ages may range from a toddler and so, there is no other user-friendly guitar you’ll see than the Yamaha F310.

Perfect for beginners whose ages may range from a toddler and so, there is no other user-friendly guitar you’ll see than the Yamaha F310. Its loud resonating sound makes you really enjoy playing it and like I said, inspires you to continue. It is easy and comfortable to play.

And because it stays in tune, you won’t have to deal with standard guitar problems while you still have no idea what you like and want with a guitar. The sound is very critical, but Yamaha F310 provides you quality sound that sustains for years. Its versatility in sound also helps to choose the right genre you want to play quickly.

Yamaha F310 has a lot of great features that satisfies the value of your money. But aside from that, although these might not affect your decision on buying the product, I found a few cons.

One is that it only has one button strap. This issue can be fixed quickly, however. It’s good enough for live playing but it’s not recommended as well as strumming it with a pick makes quite a different sound.

You might want to find a guitar with a solid wood soundboard if you want to perform. But if you’re a beginner, this is just right for playing around the house or tagging your Yamaha F310 along on family trips to entertain your parents on the road trip.

It does not only provide user-friendly features, but it also gives you an inspiring playing experience. And I would like to praise the company for creating such a product making it easier for anyone who wants to start playing guitar.
