Chimaera

Endless Possibilities. Built for Exploration.

More Exploring. More Playing. Less Tuning.

From: 3100 EUR/USD
The Chimaera isn’t just a showstopper. A unique instrument with a unique voice, this 18-string beast is ready to lead you into new creative territory.

Made using our unique one-piece moulding technology, the Chimaera is incredibly strong and stable with absolutely no joints to fail. This strength allows the instrument to be lighter in construction with a top that is delicate and responsive, yet stiff enough to resist the pull of all 18 strings. The strength and stability of the Chimaera means less tuning, more playing, and a rich, shimmering orchestral voice.
