Huss and Dalton TOM R Custom
Huss and Dalton TOM R Custom Sitka Spruce and Caribbean Walnut ID-9509
The Huss and Dalton TOM-R is a traditionally constructed OM flattop. This TOM-R has a Sitka Spruce top over a Caribbean Walnut back and sides. 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. The even response and airy, shimmery qualities are characteristic of Huss and Dalton OMs, and this one captures that to perfection.
Feel the sun and the ocean breeze all year long. Tzalam species, or Caribbean Walnut, is not listed in the CITES Appendices, and is a sustainable tonewood. The highly flamed figuring resembles a premium set of Koa, though the coloring is closer to California Sycamore. Absolutely stunning!
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 Sitka 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.
This Huss and Dalton orchestra model features custom diamond inlays, grained Ivoroid bindings on the body, matching Caribbean Walnut peghead overlay, and Waverly tuning gears with Vintage Oval Buttons.
