In 1966, Ovation was born with the idea of improving acoustic guitar sound
with high tech design and construction. Ovation guitars arrived on the scene
with round back in an acoustically engineered parabolic bowl shape, used to
dramatically reduced feedback and allow for greater amplification. Ovation also
introduced a new material, Lyrachord, into guitar making. This composite
material gave the instrument unprecedented projection and ringing sustain while
doing away with the structural weaknesses created in the orthogonal joining of
the sides. These enhancements delivered a lightweight and sonically resonant
body helping to create Ovation's signature note-to-note balance and projection.
Professional musicians hailed the Ovation's performance while purists shook
their heads, and the success of this company has been undeniable since.
