Huss and Dalton TOM-M Thermo-Cured Sitka Spruce and Australian Blackwood
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their OM as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The Traditional Huss and Dalton TOM-M top is built with a 25' radius. A positive by-product of the radiused soundboard design, besides its load bearing properties, is a boost in the mid-range without overpowering the bass and trebles. This is design function is showcased in this guitar - boasting unsurpassed tonal balance.
This TOM-M Custom from Huss and Dalton has an airy, sweet, and lively tone. Balanced, crisp tone, and responsiveness is the name of the game here; all with Huss & Dalton's trademark "bell-like ring" they have become known for. This guitar is especially suited for fingerstyle players or players with a lighter attack. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities are characteristic of Huss and Dalton OMs, and this one captures that to perfection.
This TOM-M features a Thermo Cured Sitka Spruce top, Sitka has a lower stiffness-to-weight ratio than Adirondack Red Spruce . A positive side-effect of this more flexible soundboard is that it doesn't require as much strength (or string attack) to produce it's signature balanced sonic tone. A player with a lighter attack or even fingerstyle players will find Sitka Spruce much more suited to their playing style.
Australian Blackwood, known to some as Tasmanian Blackwood or Black Wattle, grows fast and tall, up to 45m height. It has visual simliarlities to Koa, but tonally it boasts crisp, defined trebles with deep, warm bass response. When paired with a Sitka Spruce top, it has a commanding presence even when played with bare fingers.
This instrument is fully bound in a Tortoise Style binding with matching Tortoise Style peghead veneer!
