A Unique Sonic Dichotomy

Taking a tip from the Masterworks spectrum, Session Studio Select’s unparalleled shell combination of Masters-grade hardwood (4-ply Birch outer) and softer imported tonewood (2-ply African Mahogany inner) strikes a unique tonal dichotomy between top-end power and warm controlled resonance.
