- Comments: I am so impressed with the sound of the new Mcilroy A22-5 I barely know where to begin. First of all Dermot has somehow managed to retain everything I love about his A25 model...warmth,woodiness, balance, clarity. Etc. The A22-5 simply has more of everything. The projection this guitar offers can easily stand up to a fiddle or Banjo. In fact, this guitar has more sheer volume than any Mcilroy I have played, but again all signature sound characteristics are present
and accounted for. I particularly like the bottom end. Most guitars with this much volume tend to be a bit tubby in the Bass. Not the A22-5. The Bass is crystal clear with warm mids and singing trebles. If you love Mcilroy you have to check this out!
