Huss and Dalton OM Custom Sinker Mahogany and Italian Spruce ID-5692
Huss and Dalton OM Custom Italian Spruce and Sinker Mahogany
This Huss and Dalton Traditional OM Custom has an airy, sweet, and lively tone that only Italian Spruce and "Sinker" Mahogany can bring to the table. 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.
Huss and Dalton applies the same building style to their OM as they do their standard dreadnoughts. The Huss & Dalton Traditional OM 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 Italian Spruce top is braced with hand split Adirondack Red Spruce, 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.
The Sinker Mahogany back and sides produces a tone that is clear and incredibly powerful. The low end is spectacular and much more prominent than many standard mahogany guitars. The midrange, while maintaining stunning clarity and definition, is very smooth and pleasant, making for a very balanced D-18 style sound without the harsh upper mids and trebles that can sometimes jump out.
