When Martin sets their sights on crafting an affordable dreadnought, you know you're getting a quality instrument. Long a pioneer in using sustainable materials in their guitars, Martin continues this tradition with the DRS1. With its distinctive solid sapele (a close relative of mahogany) top, back, and sides, the DRS1 gives you bright, clear trebles, and warm midrange. The DRS1's punchy lows (more like a D18 than a D28) make it an excellent choice for miked recording when you've got thicker tracks to work with.

    Working Guitarist's Martin

    A member of Martin's Road series, the DRS1 gives you amazing sound and snappy good looks in a roadworthy instrument. Top, back and sides are braced for resonance and projection, and the DRS1's smooth-playing modified low oval neck is built with multilaminate Stratabond for extra rigidity and durability. The belly bridge and fingerboard are made of Black Richlite, which has a similar look and feel to ebony. The DRS1 is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which gives you great-sounding plug-and-play output, onstage and in the studio. The DRS1 is an incredible value - Martin even includes a hardshell case to protect your guitar. If you're in the market for a great-sounding, affordable dreadnought, why settle - when you could have a Martin?
