The history of Ovation
In 1964 Charlie Kaman set out to revolutionize the acoustic guitar by compiling a group of aerospace engineers to create something guitar players had never seen or heard before. They discovered that the flat backs of modern day acoustics actually hindered the balance and projection of the guitar. And so, the roundback designs found on Ovation guitars were born. As Charlie himself put it, "in helicopters, the engineers spend all their time trying to figure out how to remove vibration. To build a guitar, you spend your time trying to figure out how to put vibration in."
Mid-depth body balances sonic projection and playing comfort
Ovation guitars possess one of the more intriguing acoustic-electric guitar designs out there. This Celebrity Standard CS24 sports Ovation's mid-depth body style which helps enhance projection and tonal richness while being extremely comfortable to play, even for smaller players.
Onboard OP-4BT preamp
Ovation wrote the book on live acoustic guitar. They were the first company to introduce pickups and preamplifiers in the acoustic guitar, essentially inventing a new instrument. The Ovation Celebrity Standard CS24 is equipped with an OP-4BT preamp that has +/- 12dB control over the bass, midrange, and treble frequencies. In addition, the onboard tuner makes it easy to stay in tune. Ask any guitarist here at Sweetwater - the OP-4BT gives you the tonal control you need onstage.
