Hey Ken, you still out there!   Several of us are asking if you lived through the storm!  Hit those keys and let us sleep!  Seriously, we hope your efforts to hunker down for the storm weren't needed after all!  Edward

Well done Tamas!! 


Ken, Hope you and your instruments survive the storm! Never been in that position, but I'll bet Martin may have answers for you.

Michael & Kody,

Thank you for the compliment! I purchased the D-35 for several reasons. For one, I've wanted one for quite a while and finally broke down to the urge around the turn of the century (I've always liked that phrase.), likely add a 40 series before long. Another huge reason is that I've found that the D-35 was better as a  rhythm instrument. It gives me yet another voice to choose when playing; the same reason that I have two acoustic 12-string instruments. I like to use a flat pick for just about anything and the D-35 just seems to sound better than the HD-28 when I really have to dig in.

How have you liked your D-35?

Virgil, having just gotten the D35, why did you purchase one after the HD 28.

Both are a beauty to behold!

Long time fan of Acoustic Guitar, including the "Frets" days; been lurking on the site for some time. Thought I'd pony up with photos of my two Martins. First two are my HD-28, purchased in 1985. Second two are my D-35 purchased around 2000. Love them both. D-35 is upgraded with Gold Schallers.
