    This pair is a very unique true piano black. What makes them unique is that they are 100% hand finished, hand buffed Made in the USA - and the finish is a polyester resin based piano black. Most piano black finishes (especially from Asia) are polyurethane. Polyester buffs to a higher sheen and is harder. The finishing on this pair was completed by an experienced guitar finishing company.

    Regrettably, this is a very expensive option and will add $700 to the introductory base price of $1898/pair.

    Yes, we intend to post pictures of the various finishes that we are able to offer.

    As of right now, the standard finish options will be:

    Natural
    Espresso (with a satin sheen, not nearly as glossy as the Sierra-1)
    Dark Cherry (with the same satin sheen)
    High Gloss Black (not as perfect a mirror finish as the true piano black, which is nearly a perfect mirror)
    Satin Black
    Black Matte (this is a textured black matte paint, extremely durable and very attractive) It is the same finish that is used for M&K speakers

    Because we are building these locally, we are able to offer various custom options (various veneers, different color paints such as white) for additional fees.

    Hi, Dave. How would the "true piano black" and "high gloss black" finishes on the towers compare to the "piano black" finish on the Sierra-1?

    Wait, so you have two gloss blacks? The "True piano" and the "high gloss black", with the True piano costing a whopping $700 more?
