Welcome to the official online store of guitars Universum Guitars!
"UNIVERSUM GUITARS" is a unique in its ideology and format musical instrument factory that was founded in the historic and cultural city of Belaya Tserkov, located in 80 kilometers south from the capital of Ukraine - Kiev.
The factory owes its existence to the creative union of guitar masters, brothers Dmitry and Vadim Gavrilenko, who have 20 years of experience in the development and creation of high-end musical instruments, esteemed by many famous guitarists and musicians, with an innovator, engineer, designer Alexander Doroshenko. As it soon turned out, the creation of musical instruments of the highest quality with an unsurpassed, original sound was Alexander's long-standing dream.
Nowadays, globally, there are several major manufacturers of high-end musical instruments in the world, that's why a creation of something truly original and innovative, should be a tough challenge with an interesting, racy concept. And finally the concept was found in the nature itself.
Briefly about the Golden Section
What do the Egyptian pyramids, the picture of Leonardo da Vinci "Monna Lisa", pine cone, sunflower and snail have in common? The answer to this question is hidden in the special mathematical sequence of numbers, discovered by the medieval mathematician Leonardo Pisano, well known by the name of Fibonacci. The heart of the so-called "Fibonacci sequence" is that each new number in this sequence is the sum of the two previous numbers. Here's how this sequence begins:
If you take any number from this sequence and divide it by the number that stands in the row in front of it, you will always get an irrational value of 1.618033, and so on. Since the number is irrational and aspires to infinity, in the Middle Ages this number was called "Divine", "Golden proportion" or "Golden section". Here are a few simple examples that clearly demonstrate the fact that the given proportion is real, and moreover it is widely spread in nature, as well as in the human body:
• The ratio of the distance from the fingertips to the wrist and up to the elbow is 1 to 1.618;
• The proportion between height and width of the face of any person is 1 to 1.618;
• The distance between the pupils as well as the distance between the eyebrows correlates in the proportion 1 to 1.618 and so on...
Principles of the golden section can be found in nature and even in DNA chains. In fact, the Golden Section represents an absolute geometric and mathematical harmony, which was created by Mother Nature itself through many years of evolution and much later discovered and admired by humanity.
Now it becomes clear why the idea of using the Golden Section principles for designing and creating a musical instrument is very interesting and intriguing.
All guitars created in the Universum Guitars factory do not have prototypes. The form and sound of these instruments are, without exaggeration, a gift from the nature itself.
Each instrument is made from high-quality resonant wood, which undergoes a natural drying process before use. Electronics and other internal content are designed and developed by specialists from “Universum Guitars”.
Here, in the factory, we have recently opened a terrific, branded show room.
Despite its short history, thanks to the diligence and skill of our team, Universum Guitars permanently receive the highest ratings and reviews from famous musicians all over the globe.
P.S. In addition to the guitars presented on the pages of our online store, we can produce a completely custom guitar in any color gamut at the request of the customer, with any kind of materials, hardware, electronics etc.
