Your happy & serene approach to your work comes out in your wholesome and warm sound of your guitars.

I am especially fond of the wood Robert used to build my guitar "Blondy" (El Pajaro). I love its smell and the touch of the neck. The cage of resonance is exceptional which is very useful in the studio. You can play her loud or soft it always sounds just right. The guitar has a lot of volume, which also enables you to play in a real fiesta flamenca without a microphone. The cypress gives the guitar an authentic flamenco sound. She is also very light and therefore comfortable to play. I consider myself more than fortunate to own an instrument which inspires me to create real art.
Thanks a lot Robert, you are the best!
Muchas gracias Roberto, eres el mejor!

I own a spruce top, rosewood back and sides classical guitar built by Robert Hein. I love this instrument. The basses are loud and bold, and the trebles are very clear and bright. The guitar is well balanced tonally, and it is very easy to play. I would recommend that anyone looking for a high quality classical or flamenco guitar needs to play some of Robert's superb instruments.

My Robert Hein flamenco guitar is absolutely one of the most playable guitars I have ever owned. It is very well balanced and responds wonderfully. My intention the day I bought it at the Blue Guitar was just to pick up one of my repaired guitars. But instead, I saw it, played it, and had to have it. You must try one of Robert's guitars and fall in love..........

I enjoy knowing all the care, attention to each detail, and skill that went in to the building of my guitar, and since he's my dad, the love. He inlaid mother of pearl dolphins for me which have special meaning, and made the neck narrow for my small hands. These make it not only a joy to play, but easier too.
