Players who crave a huge, “wall-of-sound” 12-string voice will love the 858e. The big-bodied rosewood/spruce Grand Orchestra serves up a rich and powerful sound, yet also responds well to a lighter attack, putting tremendous dynamic range at the player’s fingertips. Together with the other tone-enhancing attributes of Taylor’s 800 Series — protein glues, thin finish, optimized wood thicknesses and more — lively strummers will have no problem making their voice heard. Taylor’s Expression System 2 electronics will bring all that lush sonic detail into an amplified setting.
