Eastman DT30OM Double Top Orchestra Model

Eastman DT30OM Double Top Orchestra Model

The Eastman DT30OM is the second model in Eastman’s new Double Top line, bringing high end classical guitar technology to the steel string world – here in a classic Orchestra Model body design. The double top concept aims to allow a very thin, light and responsive top but with superior strength and stiffness. Here, thin layers of Sitka Spruce are bonded to a honeycomb Nomex core. Nomex is a Kevlar polymer and helps provide significant improvements in stiffness to weight ratios.

❌SOLD❌ Dieter Hopf – Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

❌SOLD❌  Dieter Hopf - Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

Dieter Hopf’s family has been building for over three centuries, and his collaboration with Manuel Adalid, the Artista Membrane, uses the newest techniques. This unique design is a limited double top – the marked oval area visible on the cedar top is less than 2mm thick, but lattice braced with a carbon fiber layer. The result is an exceptionally loud voice, its tone tempered by the standard cedar top areas, with great projection.

José Ramirez Auditorio Duo 1a Professional : Double-Top Guitar

José Ramirez Auditorio Duo 1a Professional : Double-Top Guitar

The José Ramírez Auditorio 1a Professional Double-Top Guitar is based on the famous Ramírez 1a Traditional model with one remarkable difference: it is fitted with a Cedar “double-top”. Master-Luthier Amalia Ramírez has been working with double tops for several years. She has been determined to incorporate this 21st century concept into a new model of Ramírez guitar. After a great deal of experimentation she has perfected the design and announced this new model to the public for 2010. Double-top construction is growing in popularity as luthiers around the world adapt this modern technology to their guitars. This unique construction allows the tops to be much thinner than conventional tops.
