Product Description

Crafted with gorgeous Australian Blackwood top, back and sides, the Cole Clark Angel 2EC Grand Auditorium provides a visual and sonic appeal that is different from any other acoustic on the market! Australian Blackwood is a relatively stiff tonewood which is great for heavy strummers and sonically resembles its close cousin Koa. Painstaking craftsmanship not commonly seen in ‘main-stream’ guitars really makes the Angel 2EC sing!

Unique Construction
Cole Clark steel string acoustic guitars are the only main stream acoustic to use a Spanish heel or integral neck construction. This means the neck is glued to the face along with the sides and the back so the neck is one piece all the way to the sound hole. On other guitars, the body is made then the neck attached, mostly with a bolt or dove tail join. Due to Cole Clark’s method, the sound is unique. Cole Clark also has a carved top and back and uses a ridge system to join the sides to the top and back instead of kerfing.

Natural Pickup
The Cole Clark patented pickup system is the most acoustic sounding pickup available. Aimed at finding a more natural tone when amplified and eliminating piezo ‘quack’, the pickups comprise different elements that only hear certain frequencies which they’re best equipped to handle. This is done using a combination of 6 loaded piezos under the saddle for bottom end, a face sensor that can be blended in to hear frequencies in the mid to high range (350 Hz maximum crossover) and a condenser microphone shelved to hear only extreme highs.

Cole Clark guitars are all solid timber using mostly native Australian tone woods that are largely sustainable.

Australian Blackwood Top
This is the stiffest timber we make tops out of. It has a character all of its own, quite like Koa as it is a very close cousin. It is normally dark brown and grainy but can vary. It is native to Australia and sourced from Tasmania or Victoria.
  • Air Dry Density 640
  • Modulus of Elasticity 13
  • Janka Hardness 5.9
  • An acoustic sound in the tradition of an American all Koa guitar
  • For a medium to hard player amplified
  • Best top for a percussive player
  • Handles climate extremes better than the softer timbers. This is a sustainable timber.
Australian Blackwood Back and Sides
This is an Australian native timber sourced from Tasmania or Victoria and is sustainable. It is a beautiful timber to look at with a very similar tonal characteristic to Koa as it is a very close cousin.
  • Air Dry Density 640
  • Modulus of Elasticity 13
  • Janka Hardness 5.9
  • Good low mid’s
  • Good mid-range punch
  • Good high frequency definition
  • Good for amplifying
  • Signature Cole Clark acoustic sound, sustainable.

Product Review

When I first got word of Cole Clark, I was immediately drawn to the well-rounded descriptions of their guitars. They were specific enough to write whether or not each particular top wood was suitable for percussive players. It is important for me to have tone woods that provide sufficient strength, and the right timbres from all the ways I would slap the guitar while playing. I then took a deeper look into the company and learned about their views on sustainability, in terms of their manufacturing processes. Cole Clark uses tone woods that are 100% sustainable and home grown. So, having never set eyes nor hands on one of these artisan guitars, I decided to take a chance. Having played on this wonderfully and carefully crafted guitar for nearly two months now, it continues to amaze, both my listeners and I. Hands down, dollar for dollar, the most well rounded guitar in its class, that I have had the joy to play.
