Updates: We have just migrated our website and have some details to clean up, so please pardon the mess! We’d also like to ask for your patience if we are slower than usual to respond to orders, emails, and phone calls. We are still dealing with the challenges of operating a manufacturing business safely during COVID, and we are working with limited staff capacity. Thank you!

Black Soundboard

Black soundboard and contrasting light maple bridges, binding, and sides
No items found.

For a dramatic contrast to the strings and rails, we can finish the soundboard in a semi-gloss black lacquer instead of the standard clear lacquer. It is an opaque black, but does not create a smooth, pore-filled surface, so the texture and grain of the wood is still visible. Since the process of applying black lacquer requires the instrument to have edge binding, the binding and purfling option must also be ordered for the D45 and PD40. The Chromatic Series instruments include binding as a standard feature.

While we don't offer this exact option on the Overture, that model can be ordered with full black lacquer.

Price: $130 (Available for models D45, PD40, D300, D500, D550, D570, D650 & D670. For D45 & PD40, binding must also be ordered.)
