What Djentar's fantastic 20-string guitar can do

Musician Steve Terriberry presented his creation Djentar to connoisseurs of djent - what he himself calls "the most metal guitar in the world." Metal here is a musical style, and Djentar is distinguished from other guitars by the number of strings. There are 20 of them here at once - and this is not a fad, but a necessity to achieve new records.

Djent - A guitar playing style rich in syncopated bass-muted riffs punctuated by fast solos. It is important to have a large number of strings here - eight, nine and even more. At the NAMM 2018 music show, a special guitar from Australian Perry Ormsby was presented, who commissioned a fan of djent, Jared Jines, created an exclusive model Djent 2018. It had 18 strings.

Terriberry's product is called "Spring BH" or simply Djentar and is a full-fledged musical instrument that can and should be played by djent. True, this is not very easy - the guitar weighs 24 kg. The soundboard is made from black walnut, the neck is from maple, and the headboard is from rosewood. Elements made of carbon fiber are used to fasten the strings. There are unique 4Seasons pickups, custom made for this particular guitar. And there are no tone and volume controls.
