Huss and Dalton TOM-R Thermo-cured Red Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood ID-9549
Huss and Dalton TOM-R Custom Thermo-cured Red Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood
The Huss and Dalton TOM-R is a traditionally constructed OM flattop. This TOM-R has a Thermo-cured Red spruce top over a Brazilian Roeswood 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.
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 TOM-R features custom snowflake fingerboard inlays and Ivoroid bindings on the body.
