ALPHA

        The ALPHA utilizes the OME 5/16” rolled brass tone-ring fitted to our 9/16” 2-ply solid maple rim to increase tonal response and brilliance. The Alpha abalone and MOP shell star inlays add elegance and beauty to this simple but graceful instrument which is offered in South American mahogany with Aged Brass or Nickel hardware. Available in 5-string 11” and 12” open-back models.
