Tanglewood TW4 - Koa

Exotic sonic nature...

Bright, lively, distinctively koa. The Tanglewood TW4E Winterleaf is crafted entirely with koa. In both looks and tone, this TW4E offers exotic style with an instantly recognisable character. Imagine gorgeous mid-range focus with brightness and chime, combined. Truly distinctive, this is an instrument that's utterly captivating - in every single way. 

Love to pick? This is the timber for you. Koa has a bright persona, but the more it's played, the more you're rewarded with sweet rumbles of sonic richness. It has a gorgeous depth and plenty of texture too. Resulting in a pleasing warmth with superb sonic projection and volume. And, it's fantastic for playing through a multitude of genres. However, picking is just utterly dreamy on the TW4E. And it's incredibly responsive to meaty flat picking. Plus, with a solid top, this is a sound that blossoms with age. A sound that will just keep on giving. Not to be underestimated, this is an instrument that will stay with you for years to come.
