More Exploring. More Playing. Less Tuning.

From: 3100 EUR/USD
The Chimaera isn’t just a visual showstopper - it’s 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. Our construction process allows the instrument to be lighter, with a top that is delicate and responsive, yet stiff enough to resist the pull of all 18 strings. This strength and stability its carbon fiber body means less tuning, more playing, and a rich, shimmering orchestral voice.
