My new Rambler Travel Guitar is just superb!  The quality of the finish and attention to detail – wahoo!  And I plug it in, and Here Comes the Sun!!   The Rambler is so comfortable, light, easy on your back and good sounding.  My other guitars are going to grow dust…

I am loving my new Rambler Travel Guitar!  You’ve done a fantastic job with the design of these travel guitars, the dis-assembly and re-assembly is very simple.  The Strobel Rambler plays like a full size guitar and I find myself picking it up in preference to my other guitars.

I am very impressed with my new Rambler Classic Travel Guitar!!  It is a great sounding and easy playing guitar.  I play several different guitars here in Italy when I perform and teach, the Rambler is a better guitar in many respects. Well worth the money!

I needed a handy guitar that could travel with me, but this is so much more: the sound is great and the quality is extremely good.  I disassembled and assembled it several times, it was a piece of cake!  Great value for the money, thank you for making these amazing instruments!

“In comparing my Rambler portable guitar side-by-side with my PRS, the tonal frequency is bright and clear, it overdrives unusually smoothly, giving a bluesy sort of tone. I can also get a “100 pound violin” sound with high amp gain, neck or both pickups and tone almost fully down. Dropping the gain back a bit, […]

“My Strobel Rambler travel guitar is doing GREAT, never had a single problem with it and I’m really enjoying the coil tap feature. I run the guitar through a Tascam CD-GT 2 processor and headphones. Occasionally, I’m able to play on jets while on my trips. Everyone that sees the Strobel guitar is blown away […]

“Hi Russ, it’s a winner! Very usable sounds in a band context. I would gig with it anytime. The size makes it nice to carry around. The pickups, wood selection, and big neck, plus locking down the bridge seem to make a very big sound for the size. The fret work is great. It feels […]

Lead Guitarist from the Noveaux Honkies, International Blues Competition Finalists “As far as the Rambler Electric Travel Guitar goes I’ll say this. If you shut your eyes and just play the thing you have no idea it’s a travel guitar. Other travel guitars I have played are good as a practice item in a pinch. […]

“The Strobel Rambler Classic portable guitar is a similar style to the Hohner with the following differences: It is a bit lighter. It has the shorter Gibson scale length which is more to my taste. Tuning is a lot easier than the fiddly system on the Hohner – it uses locking tuners and you have […]

“I am so impressed with the Rambler travel guitar that I sold my Gibson SG and have only been using my Rambler ever since. Very well made guitar and the pick ups are a big shock, offering top notch sound. I get better playability on my Strobel Rambler than I do on most of the […]

The Rambler Travel Guitar beats my Gibson SG! The fretboard is fast and smooth. The sound is perfect, not what I would have expected from a “Travel Gutiar”. Great work, in the same league as my Ibanez JEM and Carvin Jason Becker!
