Norman Brown - Grammy Award Winner

Hi...This is GRAMMY Award winner Norman Brown. I have played many guitars throughout my life including Ibanez GB SERIES, Gibson, Eastman, etc. throughout that time still needing to search for versatility in one axe that stays true to each character of sound. 

For the past several years I have been playing a Singleton Norman Brown Custom Model and it is the guitar that I have been looking for! It is a very comfortable hollow body that has no F holes and no tail piece, therefore feedback is non existent.  It has been very difficult to find a hollow body guitar that I could play at high volumes, used distortion
and get over my band without feedback. This guitar does exactly that!

 

The neck plays like "BUTTER"....Smooth and even, fitting my hand to a tee! My fingers dance to the beat...in addition, this guitar has an acoustic pick up that can be switched on with ease and sounds wonderful acoustically! This pick-up also has a midi function that allows me to interact with my soft synths, tracking fabulously.


The main pick-up is powered by a 9 volt battery and sounds like a million bucks...  a warm, full, and resonating tone roars from the amp. This allows me to express my ideas as I hear them in my head as they flow from the "Think-Tank" with spirit moving inspiration. I love this guitar!!!

Cosmetically speaking, it is simply Beautifully Gorgeous! A deep, warm, rich texture of top notch painting craftsmanship creates a heavenly glow from the stage. All of my fans as well as other top players often comment on its beauty and its sound.

With my Singleton NB Series Guitar, I can get my be-bop on, I can hip-hop rhythm, and hit the pedals and rock out then quiet things down and be acoustic. Plus I can communicate with my computer and get all of my creative ideas documented.                                    

Check out Singleton Guitars, I am confident that you will find the quality, feel, look and sound that you are searching for.

Thank you Singleton Guitars!!!

Hi my name is Aaron James. When I was approached by Singleton Guitars about a bass, my first thought was what do I want. When I was coming up, I stuck mostly to jazz and played the upright specifically for 15 years. I couldn't imagine that I could get back into the electric bass game. But I was blessed to be given a unique opportunity: create the bass that I wanted. I currently work with the singer Gregory Porter, and our style of soulful, gospel tinged jazz let me feel I could open a door to using more than the upright bass. The Singleton Sensai Five custom fretless bass that I received answered my prayers. I started taking it to random sound checks on the road, just to get the feel on stage. The groove factor of this bass keeps in line with my style of funk upright, and playing with the  band was tighter than even the acoustic bass feels that I usually play with them. Finally, one day I got to play a show with my new bass and even thought the reaction
from the audience and my band was super, my own elation with the show was on my face for days. Light weight, good action, and a EQ variable thats not just superior to any electric I've owned, but easy to set for me, a musician trying to discover a sound. Working with Singleton Guitars, I was able to get the bass I wanted, to play the way I wanted. Period. That's the way it should be when you need to find an instrument to yourself. The groove is alive!

"I have been looking for a light-weight, perfectly balanced bass for a long time.  The moment I picked up the Sensei5, I knew that I had found it.  I love the clarity and punch of its amazingly rich tone, and how effortlessly the neck plays I can't bring myself to pick up my Fenders or my Lakland anymore. .  Thank you, Touch, for this gorgeous bass!"

"Singleton Guitars are beautifully constructed and wonderful to play.  The attention to detail and sound palette are rare even in the world of custom instruments. The hollow chambers in my DB Level resonate in a way that really makes it sound and feel like a much bigger guitar. Thanks, Touch!"

"I love my Singleton guitar! It plays great, sounds great and looks great! On my guitar the action is perfect, its effortless, real easy and smooth to play. It's almost like I can play faster on this instrument. There is a variety of sounds and colors I can create with the custom pickup configuration. I would recommend the Singleton guitar to anyone who takes their playing seriously!"

"The Singleton guitar is aesthetically pleasing and an awesome axe to play! I love how light and comfortable it is and the various sound combinations it offers.

Every time I use my Singleton guitar the accolades keep flowing from onlookers noting how beautiful it looks and sounds! I love my Singleton guitar so much that I've commissioned the guitar's designer, Touch Singleton to customize my next guitar! I love his selection in choice woods, design chamber construction and superb electronics incorporation!

The Triune Creme is quite possibly the most comfortable and natural

feeling guitar in my collection. From the moment I first picked it up, I felt ‘at

home’. it is simply effortless and organic to play, with it’s silky smooth

neck, deep cutaway and recessed neck joint. On a sonic level, the Triune

is crazy versatile - from warm Jazzy tones to skanky funk to all out B-tothe-

W shredding. It is my go-to guitar for so many of my projects. And if

that weren’t enough, they are aesthetically gorgeous works of art. Looking

forward to my next Singleton Guitar!!!

I've always wanted a bass that was very light weight and had the ability to give me various tones. That's exactly what I received when I played the Andromeda6. This bass is beautiful and the 4-band EQ allows me to get any tone I desire when I need it. Touch, this bass is the truth in every aspect and turn heads and opens ears every time I pull it out of the gig bag to play it!

It has been an enlightening experience to finally have an axe that does everything, sounds absolutely wonderful the neck the weight the feel and craftsmanship, I get nothing but compliments on my Custom made Del Prime' it literally accentuates God’s gift of music in me, Mark Singleton aka Touch is beyond a master guitar builder and craftsman when it comes to expert design & electronics, now that I own my own custom Singleton, my other name brand axes just don't match up! Thanks Touch
