Huss and Dalton D RH Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Hot Hide Glue ID-6783
Huss and Dalton D RH Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Hot Hide Glue
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 Indian 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. Rosewood offers a lush, rich tone with lots of reverberation like properties and a full low end. 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.
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.)
This D-RH also features the use of Hot Hide Glue. Hide Glue was the original glue used on the early Martin guitars but has been phased out by many luthiers due to the added time it takes to work with... not to mention it is very messy! Hot Hide glue sets up like glass, offering a more immediate and efficient transfer of energy throughout the top, making the overall guitar more responsive with a clarity of tone that is unmatched.
