Tone is always a subjective thing. I have a Fylde Orsino and an Alchemist and have played Martins, Lowdens and an Avalon. All are beautifully crafted guitars and each has a distinct tone. Of the variants I tried I’d say the Martins and Avalon were at the warmer end and the Fyldes and Lowden were brighter. They are also more distinct in string voicing so quite effective for fingerpicking styles. Of course all these are specific to the guitar model and size so difficult to generalize.
