Looking for a small guitar


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Thanks @jim-dutton and @kerry for the extensive help. I am really starting to get a good view on the pro's and con's of guitars and this small one in particular. I would like to enquire just a bit further about the splitting of the plastic. Can you tell me more about it? How does the splitting occur?

I would mainly use the guitar for softer fillings, like fruit jelly, marshmallow and soft ganache.

Thanks a lot, Greg, for your insights. They are very helpful.

Can you tell me a bit more why the strings are so difficult to replace? Is it like tuning a guitar? This model is quite small (0,5m x 0,5m) and supposedly dishwasher safe.. I wonder if the strings will break as easily as the full size's longer strings.

That's very nice of you, Sebastian, but I don't have a shop yet. For now I'm just trying and making recipes, photographing my creations and trying to raise a decent Facebook and Instagram page. You can have a look if you are interested:

Out of curiosity, where have you been here in Belgium?

Does anyone have experience with the big Martellato guitars or their products in general? I don't know the reputation of the brand.

Hello people,

I am looking for a small guitar, to produce small quantities of cremini, truffles and pâte de fruits. Does anyone have experience with the one from Martellato?

I have this one in mind: http://www.martellatoprofessional.com/en-GB/0/0/0/Double-cut-mini-guitar__p-33141-33174-33185-2304.aspx

I have to special order it, so I'd like to know if it's any good.

Thanks!

Wim

Hello fellow chocolatiers! My name is Wim, I am 33 years old and I live in Belgium. I love making chocolate, and confections. My specialities are pâte de fruits, marshmallow and caramel spread :)

I hope to learn a lot on this forum. I have been reading through a lot of posts and I'm excited to become a part of it. Where I can, I'd love to help out.
