Dieter Hopf – Manuel Adalid Artista Membrane Classical Guitar, 2009

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.
