Huss and Dalton Traditional OM
Huss and Dalton Traditional OM Custom with Italian Spruce and Katalox Royal Ebony
This Huss and Dalton Traditional OM Custom was recently displayed at NAMM 2016. This gorgeous instrument features custom Katalox back and sides that when coupled with the custom Italian Spruce top, brings a significant amount of sweet, crisp, and bright tone. Each note carries with complexity and richness.
Katalox is an extremely dense tonewood that is gaining popularity in the luthier market. The heartwood ranges from violet to deep purple which can darken to near black with age. The sapwood compliments this color tone with a creamy golden hue, and when worked into a project it provides a wonderfully vivid contrast to the rich heartwood.
Tonality for Katalox is said to mimic traditional attributes of ebony, along with excellent sustain.
The trebles shine very brightly and it offers a marvelous sound that covers the bass with roundness and sustain while preserving the clarity and great separation of the trebles and mid ranges.
Custom appointments made to this guitar include an Italian Spruce Top, Katalox Back and Sides, Cocobolo bound body, Cocobolo bound fingerboard and Waverly 1129 Special Issue Vintage Oval Tuning Machines.
