Now featuring a highly figured one-piece back and close-grain spruce top made from the finest woods - air dried a minimum of 5 years - our new Dahlia5 is antiqued for the look of an old-world Cremona classic, with hand applied oil varnish of the highest quality.
The nut width measures 26mm to provide the standard string-to-string spacing of a 4 string violin, but the neck is slimmer for a more comfortable feel.
Full and powerful...
The tone of the new Dahlia5 offers a more powerful high register while maintaining a big, full C string tone. The string-to-string balance is obscenely even. Our new Dahlia 5-string is designed for the highly trained player who can focus and control the power of this new model.
Add Gary's lightweight internal pickup system and your Dahlia5 has all the versatility for your amplified needs as well.
