Radial Braced

Pretensioned Soundboard

hr

The uniquely designed soundboard is radial braced, with each of the divergent pieces under tension to form an S curve. If the tension was removed the pieces would return to being straight. The tension or torsion is what “enlivens” most soundboards and this is a different way of achieving it.

Design & Materials

hr

Soundboard

Lattice braced, each of the divergent pieces is under tension to form an S curve to “enliven” it.

Neck

Crafted with a combination of ebony and carbon fiber and does not require a truss rode.

Headstock & Tailpiece

Add a distinguished look but are also very practical and allow easy string-changing.

Crafted with Tasmanian woods. King Billy pine, a Tasmanian endemic softwood tree  is used for soundboard and backs.

Fiber

Carbon fiber is used in the neck and soundboard joints for stiffness and improved reliability.

Metal
