The D-RH is a dreadnought brought up to date with a radiused top and the red spruce bracing found in all H&Ds. The radiused top brings a boost to the mid-range for a more balanced tonal palette . It was clearly designed with the bluegrass picker in mind, but with enough dynamic range to be enjoyed by the finger-stylist who requires a big voice in his instrument. Indian rosewood back and sides with a Sitka spruce top are standard. The elegance of curly maple binding and fine herringbone top purfling belies the D-RH’s willingness to rip it up on stage.
