Yvonne Timoianu uses Recitalbox another word for RECITALBOX?
The MAGIC-BOX...! What else?

How else could I describe the secret little "something" that works like thousand resonance-strings (with the difference that one does not have to tune all of them before performing!), and is turning so easily and clearly much more of my musical thoughts into reality, without changing any of the "true colours" of my cello's sound?

Eva Maria Mitter award Accordion Recitalbox for Bajan, Akkordeon too!
Trying out the Recitalbox also paid off with my instrument. Although developed for stringed and plucked instruments, the Recitalbox achieves a distinct improvement of the sound with the Bajan too. Playing in dry rooms is a big pleasure for me now. It also makes the problem of registration between right and left hand much easier.I just recommend the Recitalbox to anyone!

Augustin Wiedermann"Recitalbox" gives one the feeling of playing in a church without the help of electronics. In "dry" rooms is the effect outstanding. ... RECITALBOX means also a greater motivation for music students and others."

Guenther Berger with Mexikan Bass Guitar"Because of its simplicity ,,Recitalbox" is a highly remarkable invention. With ,,Recitalbox" all notes obtain fully equal, symmetric and very good resonance. The beautiful sound remindsof the magical brilliance of Segovia's recordings"

Professor Martin KelnerThrough the generation of a natural reverberation effect, the sound of the guitar becomes deeper and the usual short sustain of the acoustic guitar gets even longer. RECITALBOX brings more enjoyment in playing.

Udo KamjunkeDear Mr. Avakian,

I have been using your invention “Recital Pick-Up Model-F” on my Indian Sitar and it is, after everything else that I tried, with distance the best! Thank you.

Now I also bought the Wireless Pick-Up Set for my guitar and again I feel very satisfied with it. I know so far nothing that is better and above all nothing that in the price is comparably reasonable.

As you can see on my homepage: I frequently use your inventions (Recitalbox and the Recital Pick-Ups) and I am absolutely satisfied with them. Great!

I am very satisfied with the Recitalbox because it helps me out  in times when Sound Engineers believe that a Flamenco Guitar needs no Reverb. For me, the Reverb of a Guitar is like a Medium, a pathway that unifies listeners, instrument and performers in such a magical and inexplicable way. Therefore, I feel very thankful for being able to reach this possibility with the help of the Recitalbox in an acoustic and natural way.

I am fascinated, many thanks Vanik !

"This equipment was a positive surprise to me. Our guitarists will now have charming new possibilities."

" The Instrument sounds full in volume and homogeneous and certain secondary noises, which often cause the guitarists lots of worries, disappear or become hardly audible".
