This rose is laser cut with a high-density lens so there is little or no burning on the edges and great detail. It is made of three layers with a design based on the E.7048 model "Chambure" vihuela now in the Cité de la Musique in Paris, France.
This rose is available with either wooden, parchment or paper layers, so you can customize the layers as you wish. The original has a parchment bottom layer (layer one), with wooden layers two and three. The wood layers give more strength to the rose and eliminate the tendency of the parchment to swell with humidity and protrude from the sound hole.
Please note: because of the variability of wood color, the color of the wood layers on the rose that you receive may be a different shade than the wood pictured.
The paper we use is a high quality, acid-free art paper that offers strength with little reaction to humidity.
The standard diameter is 3" (7.62cm), but you can specify a custom diameter and we will scale the rose to your specifications.
The layers are referred to as follows:
- Layer 1 is the bottom layer
- Layer 2 is the middle layer
- Layer 3 is the top layer
