The Cole Clark Violap features a hollow body, with internally carved top and back. The tone is at once strong yet sweet, the response from a tone bar lively and laconic, depending solely on your mood. This is the lap steel you’ll want to play in the small hours of the night, when the house is quiet, or when room service is closed. Physical balance is good, aided by the hollow neck design, the hourglass shape vaguely reminiscent of body shapes from the thirties. Light weight yet with great projection, the Violap could well be the voice of the Siren which seduces you into expanding your playing style.
