German Spruce is very powerful but also dynamic with the ability to be articulate at a low volume.
It has a brilliant harmonic structure that develops beautifully with time.
Although it is slow to age, a mature German top can produce bell-like treble voicings, a robust midrange and full bodied bass response.
German is a very complex spruce with a fundamental that is warm to begin with.
I find that German Spruce is best suited to fingerstyle playing.
