Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom with Thermo-cured Red Spruce and Sinker Mahogany ID-9780
Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom with Thermo-cured Red Spruce and Mahogany
The Huss and Dalton TD-M has the understated look of a traditional mahogany guitar, but has a sound that is anything but understated.
Our Huss and Dalton TD-M Custom, was built using old growth "sinker mahogany" and a Thermo Cured Adirondack Spruce top
The topwood on this guitar is Thermo-Cured Red (Adirondack) Spruce, one of the most aggressive and powerful woods available. Adirondack provides virtually unlimited headroom when played hard, perfect for heavy handed bluegrass players who are competing with louder string band instruments such as banjos and fiddles.
Huss and Dalton's new Thermo-Cured Appalachian Red Spruce tops are treated with a unique curing process. The commercial version of this process, known as, “thermo curing”, “wood torrefaction” or “roasting”, was developed in Finland to enhance durability and appearance of other wood materials.
The Sinker Mahogany back and sides produces a tone that is clear and incredibly powerful. The low end is spectacular. 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.
From Huss and Dalton : "If you like wood with a story, then it doesn't get any better than this material.This is material from the bottom of Belizean rivers. Belize used to be a British colony. The British exported a lot of Mahogany from Belize throughout history and during the 19th century they used the rivers of Belize as their main source of transportation. Occasionally the denser Mahogany logs would sink! These logs for over 100 years had been lost and forgotten, until now!"
