IN 1966, AERONAUTICAL PIONEER CHARLIE KAMAN did what few have ever succeeded in doing - he revolutionized the acoustic guitar.
Ovation guitars arrived on the scene with their round backs and new ideas.

As a longtime guitarist, he understood the needs of players and his extensive helicopter blade experience gave him a better understanding of vibration than any other guitarmaker.

So Kaman broke the first rule of many and developed the roundback. The design improved projection, gave the guitar a better balance from bass through treble and made for a stronger and more rugged instrument.
