The idea of La Sonanta came about because of a number of problems we have faced in the past as musicians. We have had to select our instruments, dance wear or books from a very small number of choices and shops gave us very little time in which to make this important decision. Often we felt that we had made a quick decision and were not happy with the choices we made. Sometimes we felt that we had been sold to by a salesman, rather than advised by a fellow musician who understood our requirements. When ordering a guitar from a famous luthier or shoes from an artisan, we were often placed on a long waiting list and found it difficult to manage the process. And when we recorded our performance, we frequently found ourselves in overpriced studios that had very little understanding of our music and did not know how to get the best from our instruments. La Sonanta was created to answer all of these problems. At La Sonanta you are welcome to try our exceptional, large collection of new and old flamenco guitars, dance wear, cajons and accessories. At La Sonanta we buy directly from the finest true authentic craftsmen giving you the lowest prices possible. Our ‘La Sonanta artisans’ Martín and José are happy to support you with their expert, artisan guitar maintenance, repair and restoration services. For those customers who are unable to visit our shop, we will gladly send a guitar, without any risks, anywhere in the world for trial and approval. Our reliable logistic services include on line tracking of your shipment's delivery status. For our worldwide deliveries we solitary use the unique environmental green fleet of UPS. For those wishing to record their music, La Sonanta remote studios offers the finest engineers, equipment and acoustics to economically capture the magic of your performance, either in house, or on location with our mobile studio. The DVD and books, produced by our own independent label ‘La Sonanta productions’, are created in close collaboration with the world’s best gypsy flamenco maestros. In these series, renowned flamenco maestros use step-by-step exercises based on their own compositions. In addition, we also offer free flamenco guitar educational videos online with free Tabs for you to enjoy at your leisure.
