The Christopher DB203T (violin shaped model) is made of cross grained, laminated hardwoods. The ideal choice for professionals who need a rigid bass to travel with.
All of our Christopher instruments attach great importance to the right arch of back and top. A special production process enables Christopher to fabricate the arch in a characteristic exclusive to Christopher instruments even with our laminated instruments. We do not use prefabricated plywoods but press the individual veneer layers into form while gluing them together. Only with this method can a sufficiently strong arch can be reached.
Moreover, a cross bar is fitted into the arched back which provides the instrument with an additional stability and gives the sound more definition.""
