Made in the USA with Local Hardwood and Softwood

Made in USA from Local Hardwood and Softwood

 

The Travolin is expertly hand crafted and is constructed using locally grown hardwoods and softwoods.  The Adirondack spruce soundboard not only has a superior sound but it also has the most stiffness of all the spruces and adds to the Travolin’s sturdiness.  Silverleaf begins by picking out the best trees it can find. This makes the best quality maple bodies the best Adirondack Spruce creates the best sound you can buy. We then process it at our plant so we can not only the control quality of our products but it enables us to maintain control of our costs. This results in a high quality instrument at a reasonable price that you can afford.

 

Once the Maple and Spruce are air dried to between 6 and 8% moisture the body is shaped, sanded stained. The soundboard is cut out, braced to reinforce the top and then it is tuned to optimize the sound output before being finished. The result is a crisp clean sound with great sustain and resonance.  Special care has been taken in the design criteria to optimize the fret height at the 12th fret.  This insures that you have great action and playability.  The solid bar stock truss rod gives great stability to the neck and also a well-balanced substantial feel as you hold the instrument while enhancing the all-around robustness of the design.
