Sitka Spruce Top
Looking to dig in and fully express yourself while retaining complete clarity of sound? Sitka spruce is right up your alley. Used to create high quality, even-grained soundboards, it’s one of the most commonly used top woods for acoustic instruments.
Depth and strength from low to high registers, rosewood’s ability to compliment high velocity sounds with a broad range of overtones is appealing to players of all styles.
Our handcrafted instruments pay tribute to traditional build methods and body styles while delivering a balanced and refined tone.
All of our instruments are built in workshops in Beijing by an expert team of luthiers and craftsmen.
