Construction:

Specially selected tone woods were our starting point, rich full sounds and after- tones were built in with a fine AAA grade Spruce top. Improved visuals were applied via the asymmetric and wide sound hole and a nod to classical roots by use of a slot head 2-aside headstock. Sympathetic binding, dot markers and inlays were all stripped back to be in visual harmony with the selected timbers.

Live action was handled via the dedicated B-Band U 1.5T, simple but great and controllable tone with B-Bands usual quality of reproduction either on stage or in the studio.

Sound Samples: Don’t just take our word for it try our sound samples and hear for yourself.
