Tempering is a highly scientific drying process that the wood undergoes to make it lighter, stiffer and more stable than the industry standard kiln dried wood. Tempered wood is more resonant and has a longer natural sustain than wood that has not been treated. Click the Tempered Tonewoods logo to read more about the process.
We’re currently working on a semi-hollow design which will be available in both the SERUS and SECTIS lines. There’s a 24.75″ scale single cutaway design in the queue right behind those, and the first Novo bass is not far behind that.
