Donal owns a 2006 Vintage D/ Adi & IRW that he purchased from Brian Wolfe at Acoustic Music.org.
Additionally he owns a Vintage OM (pictured) and in 2014 he got an Aged Tone DS 12 Fret. In the past, he has played both a Slope D and a JOM.
“I remember playing this one, I had to have it. I found the one. It has that driving kind of tone, great for the band (Danu). It has that real punchy mid-range, strong powerful mid-range. Also, I like the balance, compared to other dreadnoughts and your guitars in general, your sound is very balanced, there is no excessive boominess, just a rich bass. And the trebles are really nice. I find this a very versatile guitar. I find it fantastic for fingerpicking and open tunings .”
