A unique instrument from Art & Lutherie: the TRES Acoustic-Electric.

With its three courses of two strings, the unique Art & Lutherie TRES unleashes a distinct melodic island rhythm sure to get the festivities rocking. Nobody can pinpoint exactly when the TRES Cubano first came about, or who first played one, but the one thing that is certain is that this quality handmade in North America instrument is sure to be the centerpiece of any Caribbean ensemble. The traditional tuning of the Cuban tres is as follows G,C,E where the E string is the same as a guitar high E. Modern tuning is often up a step and is A,D, F# or an open D chord. The lively textured sound produced by its beautiful Wild Cherry back and sides combined with the warm overtones that only the finest pressure tested Solid Cedar top can deliver, make the Art & Lutherie TRES a joy to play. The comfortable yet powerful Folk size TRES is offered in a Traditional shape. The Art & Lutherie TRES features Godin Q1T Electronics with a built in Tuner. When the party really starts to rock this latin rhythm machine answers the call!
