From £185.00

Strong, laminated tension hoops hold the hide heads on the body of the Alfaia which is also made of laminated wood. The shells are unpainted but colourless lacquered, the simple design leaves all the attention to the handcraft work and the wood-optic. The Alfaias are very light! Good quality, stable nylon strings are used for the tuning system. Another pro for this series is the hide heads on aluminium rims. Other than hide heads on wood rims, these won't twist out of shape as much and make every head changing quick and easy.
