Namaste from India

Hardwar-in-a-rickshaw-with-my-friend-Jane-and-my-compact-Voyage-Air-guitar-in-my-lapI have been traveling throughout India with my Voyage-Air guitar since late December, from South to North, and East to West.  From the tip of India where three seas meet (Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal), to the beaches of Kerala, the caves in the foothills of the Himalayas, the banks of the Ganges, the shores of Puri and the mountains of Pune. 

With performances at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Mumbai, at a resort in Kerala, and at an outdoor event for 1500 people in New Delhi.  Many hours chanting at the Pilgrimage sites of Yogananda, Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Anandamoyi Ma, Vanamali Devi and Babaji.  Impromptu Kirtans at a huge Shiva statue in Hardwar by the banks of the Holy Ganges, on trains and buses. 

I love my Voyage-Air guitar, and so does everyone else who meets it!

Not only is it lightweight, convenient, with great action and beautiful tone, it is very cool!

The only complaint is that I have to tune it a lot, but that is a small price to pay.  One way I've dealt with that is to not fold it up all the time---instead I just let it poke it's neck out the top of the pack.  Works fine!  (see pictures)

BTW, I bought this beauty at The Fifth String in Berkeley in early December, a few weeks before my departure.  One of the smartest things I've done was to get this guitar!

In Gratitude,

    I received my VAOM-1C and boy does it sing!  I am the proud and happy owner of several top-notch Martins: a D35 Johnny Cash, a HD28e, a solid DCPA4R as well as a 1973 00-18. I also had a 2003 D18 which I sold because it wasn't so good. I was expecting the VAOM-1C to sound ok but not more. "Can't have the best of both worlds" I thought. Well, now I do. It is just exquisite, so melodic and yet with a surprising sustain and expressivity. It is a true jewel at a more than decent price! All the Best and THANK YOU!

    My wife and I travel a lot and in the past have had issues with taking a guitar with me......they're either too bulky for the overhead compartment, or I have to let the luggage handlers toss around my guitars like they're a bag of beans. I recently purchased one of your VAOM-04 guitars, and I'm totally impressed with the sound and the playability of this instrument. My first choice is my Martins, but since I received the VAOM-O4 I haven't put it down. I would recommend this guitar to any player, even if you don't travel that much. I'm looking forward to my next trip. I may just spend most of the trip playing this guitar.
    Great Job Voyage-Air.

    It’s considered a “travel guitar,” and it truly is a remarkably portable instrument; however, that label does it a disservice, because honestly, it’s a damn nice guitar. It just happens to have a nifty set of hinges that allow the neck to fold over on the top, making it far more compact and transport friendly. I love my Telair!

    I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and genius behind this amazingly compact, but great sounding guitar!! I work in the movie industry and travel quite a bit, and being able to bring my guitar as a carry-on wherever I go is just what I've been looking for! The overall sound is amazingly rich for its size, and the folding mechanics work like a dream! If you’re wondering if it's worth getting, the answer is a big YES!!

    I bought a VAD-04 strictly for travel and light use. The day I bought it I paid a visit to United Airlines. As I was walking up to the counter the clerk said that he had seen these before and that there was no problem taking it on as carry-on. .I think that this is a great value and a nice sounding piece All in all it is a winner in my book. I’ve heard less sound from much more expensive instruments. I may mike it because I think it compares to my Taylor 814ce and Breedlove it surprised me!

    I travel a lot, and for years, I schlepped my heavy Goodall Jumbo, always worried about it getting damaged and stolen.  I recently purchased a Voyage Air guitar and love it.  Its light, gets on planes, and sounds terrific. It has made travelling with a guitar a no-brainer.  Even after closing and opening, it stays very close to being in tune. I recommend this guitar to anyone who likes to play wherever they go.
