SDG-1
“A piano like balance
and depth with almost a slight growl

“The SDG1 is a flat-top steel string instrument which represents many years of various incarnations of this design. Of all my instruments, this one has gone through the most iterations to reach the point it is at now. An instrument that is truly unique in voice with a piano like balance and depth with almost a slight growl to it. The reason it took me so long to arrive here was because while I was chasing balance in tone I inevitably always ended up feeling like the instrument sounded too sterile. Too controlled. It took me until around 2016 to finally arrive at the bracing pattern, air volume and approach to voicing which allowed me to build an instrument that I felt was completely balanced but also had a character in its tone which is undeniable.”
