2010 Huss and Dalton TOM-R Brazilian Rosewood Adirondack Spruce Hot Hide Glue ID-5650
2010 Huss and Dalton TOM-R Brazilian Rosewood Adirondack Spruce Hot Hide Glue
Brazilian Rosewood is an extremely rare tonewood with deep bass and brilliant trebles that was used on the famous vintage guitars we have all grown to love. An international embargo on trade on Brazilian rosewood products guarantees that the relatively few sets remaining in this country will continue to spiral in price as the supply dwindles.
In addition to a gorgeous set of Brazilian, this guitar features an Adirondack Spruce top. Adirondack spruce is a tonewood that has a high stiffness to weight ratio and virtually unlimited headroom and power. This allows the player to pull unlimited volume and tone from the instrument.
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their OM as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The 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. The Adirondack top is braced with hand split Adirondack, as are all of Huss and Dalton's guitars, which is a stiffer bracing material that makes for a more responsive and lively top due to a more efficient transfer of energy.
This custom TOM-R from Huss and Dalton has a liveley, powerful tone that only Adirondack Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood can bring to the table. Balanced, crisp tone, and rich full overtones is the name of the game here; all with Huss & Dalton's trademark "bell-like ring" they have become known for. This OM will respond well to even heavy handed flatpickers, while maintaining surprising responsiveness for fingerstyle players as well. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities are characteristic of Huss and Dalton OMs, and this one captures that to perfection.
This guitar is difficult to distinguish from new, with only normal finish sinking and a few light finish scratches. Original hardshell case included.
