Timeless Instruments

By January 21, 2021April 14th, 202153 Comments

David Freeman

Since 1980, every instrument David has built is one-of a-kind.  He has designed his own models, choosing the woods, bracing structure and aesthetics to achieve the requirements he wants.  Teaching this art/craft has allowed him to research acoustic design and structure.  He works with the subtleties of sound board thicknesses, bracing, mass, stiffness and wood types to develop different sound, David’s main interest.  He also incorporates the importance of aesthetics and playability to present notably light, exquisite instruments.

Another aspect that he enjoys is that of inlay.  Collecting a variety of material to work with in shell, metal, and wood, he creates themes or designs in old style craftsmanship without CNC’s.

David has used many non-traditional woods over the years of his career. His knowledge of the sound properties of other woods has kept him exploring new species that can be used. His most recent line of instruments is the offset sound hole with 24 fret, full access cutaway in all models. The sound hole location opens up the sound to the player without needing a side sound port. Frontal projection is maintained and the strumming hand is out of the way of the sound hole.

David has also used jade and silver in his instruments. He has used these as stand-alone carvings and jewelry pieces, mainly as commissioned pieces.

    Үou really make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I fіnd this matter to
    be actually something whiϲh I think I’d by no means understand.
