Martin is now offering two new orchestra cutaway models constructed with flamed maple and koa back/sides that also include Fishman's Ellipse Blend system that provides non-invasive controls located inside the bass-side lip of the soundhole.

The OMC-16E Maple Ellipse Blend features flamed maple back and sides and a solid spruce soundboard. Flamed maple is prized for its fiddleback or tiger-striped grain that produces a strong, projective tone. The OMC-16E Maple features Fishman's onboard Ellipse Blend Sound Reinforcement system that blends an active Martin Gold+Plus under-thesaddle transducer pickup signal with the gooseneck-mounted condenser microphone.

The OMC-16E Koa Ellipse Blend uses Hawaiian flamed koa back and sides and a solid spruce soundboard. Hawaiian koa is prized not only for its beautiful honey color and rippled grain, but also for its tone, which seems to possess both the warmth of rosewood and the brilliance of mahogany. The OMC-16E features Fishman's innovative onboard Ellipse Blend Sound Reinforcement system that blends the pickup and microphone signals.
