2010 Huss and Dalton D RH Sitka Spruce and Honduran Rosewood ID-7110
2010 Huss and Dalton D RH Sitka Spruce and Honduran Rosewood
From the Huss & Dalton website, “The D-RH is a powerful dreadnought tempered with boost to the midrange for a more balanced tonal quality.” It features a Sitka Spruce sound-board with Indian Rosewood back & sides, and herringbone top purfle. When it comes to Huss and Dalton, the D-RH is by and large one of the most popular models in our store. A powerful dreadnought tempered with a boost to the midrange for a more balanced tonal quality, the Huss and Dalton D-RH exhibits an incredible projection and dynamic range at an affordable price. These guitars don't stick around for long, so be sure to come visit to fall in love!
As with all of Huss and Dalton's standard models, the top of the D-RH 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. In essence, this guitar has a more "modern" sound, favoring balance and clarity in lue of driving bass and scooped mids. The note-to-note balance and Huss and Dalton's trademark "bell-like ring" they have become known for makes this model a sure-fire winner!
This instrument features a Sitka Spruce top combined with Honduran Rosewood back and sides. This combination is favorable for many playing styles as it offers the most versatility in regards to heavy or light playing. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both. It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch. When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end.
Denser than Indian Rosewood, Honduran Rosewood is well-known for its excellent tonal properties. It produces a well-balanced guitar with solid projection and strong lows and highs. Honduran Rosewood is a wonderful tonewood that is warm, well balanced and exceptionally beautiful.
Not to be confused as just a cosmetic upgrade, the herringbone purfle on this guitar makes the Rosewood backed dreadnought much warmer with increased low end and richer high-end and an instant broken-in feel in regards to responsiveness. (Read more on this controversial topic here.)
