Tonal Evaluation

Ultimate Weapon, indeed! This James Tyler axe has supreme balance and good deal of muscle in the attack. It's chunky and meaty in the low end with plenty of clarity, and you can really push the mids and make them sing. The trebles are quite touch sensitive, and they can either cry, purr, or scream depending on your right hand technique. We are proud to offer such an incredible instrument to our exceptional customers, and we know it will provide years of inspiration to its lucky future owner.
