Originally introduced to the world in 2001, the Martin Road Series set a new benchmark for touring musicians and caters to the live performing musicians' needs.
The Road Series DRS-1 is back - A workhorse electro acoustic for any gig
The Martin DRS1 how manages to combine all of the tradition and vintage styling we've come to expect from C.F Martin's acoustic guitars into one affordable model. The darker 'mahogany' brown stain on a Solid Sapele wood top looks absolutely gorgeous, a vintage feel that matches the heritage of Martin perfectly.
Top, back and sides are braced for resonance and projection, and the DRS1's smooth-playing modified low oval neck is built with multilaminate Stratabond for extra rigidity and durability - Exactly what you need for peace of mind on tour. A Fishman Sonitone electronic pickup system delivers stage-ready electronic performance that carries, the big, bold tone of an all-solid Sapele tonewood.
The DRS-1 is built to Martin's FSC-certified standards. FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
