Bedell Revolution Parlor
Bedell Guitars invented a new shape for parlor guitars. The lower bout is both wider and longer than traditional parlors giving the instrument more air volume and therefore more sound.
As a 12-fret to the body design, the bridge is positioned right in the center of the lower bout enhancing the modal dynamics to deliver more efficient and pronounce sound. For a small instrument, the Bedell Revolution Parlor produces a big sound. We love their Parlors and this is one of our favorite wood combos. Bedell picks some of their prettiest pieces of Cocobolo for the Revolution Series.
The cocobolo back is sanded to a thinness that really brings the parlor to life. Bedell doesn't build guitars to a predetermined tonewood dimension, but rather sand them to a weight that responds to a target frequency, several half steps higher than the Adirondack spruce soundboard. Then they hand carve the bracing and tone bars to insure the entire guitar top is tuned to deliver maximum sound efficiency.
The turquoise appointments and stunning sunburst make the Revolution Series so stunning to behold. But the Revolution Parlor is a dream to play. You will want one once you try it.
