Collings OM2H w/ Adirondack & Cocobolo
This guitar is a recording engineer’s dream! All of this is wrapped up in a guitar that you will feel comfortable sitting on the couch playing for hours, recording on music row, or playing on any stage. Simply, yet elegantly appointed, this is a true family heirloom for generations to come. The OM body size has been favored by fingerstyle players for years, but has made its mark in flatpicking and strumming with its unique clarity and projection. Living up to the pedigree and namesake Collings has established, this Collings OM2H A is no exception and is a true delight to play.
In this special OM2H Cocobolo, Adirondack is matched with the Cocobolo for obvious reasons. Adirondack provides a high stiffness across and along the grain, making it one of the go-to soundboards for flat-pickers. It has the highest cross-sectional strength and across-the-grain stiffness of all spruce species.
Cocobolo characteristically has powerful low overtones resulting in a complex bottom end. The overall effect is also a bell like tone with clear, slow decaying harmonics. Fast and responsive, it articulates with ample note distinction and a rich low end.
This OM2H Cocobolo, boasts the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end. The body size of the OM lends itself towards a more focused and defined tone than a typical dreadnought size, yet the folks at Collings build with volume in mind. This Collings OM2H A no doubt represents the defined aspects of the OM; with a crisp, clear tone across the entire spectrum.
