Recording King - Torrified top ROT16

$499.00Price

This innovation is a breakthrough in acoustic guitar manufacfturing. First, the wood is kiln-dried conventionally to a moisture level of 6 to 10 percent. The wood is then “cooked” in a torrefaction kiln at a high temperature while controlling atmospheric moisture and oxygen levels. After the moisture level is taken to zero percent, the wood is placed in a conditioning chamber where the level of moisture is raised to 3 to 6 percent.

The resulting wood boasts greater stability—especially beneficial as it’s exposed to atmospheric moisture during the life of an instrument—due to the closure of the cells when the water and sap is released from the wood. Another benefit is the beautiful golden-caramel color that results from the process.
This is really nice as it relates to guitar tops, since the color comes out looking like older guitars with perfectly time-aged spruce.
This process is used on Recording King Adirondack (Red) spruce tops. These solid torrefied Adirondack spruce tops provide the foundation for Recording King's Torrefied Series 000. The tone of the torrefied top is impressive, and when paired with the mahogany back and sides, it results in guitars with extra punch, projection and warmth.
