What a versatile shape, and at 32mm shoulders by 31mm length, it’s even a millimeter bigger than the regular TRI-02’s, and with 3.0mm heft this one feels thin for its size, but is strong and bold, ready for some heavy lifting, even on bass.
This material, also known as Galalith is a historic synthetic plastic material manufactured by the interaction of casein (a milk protein) and formaldehyde. Invented in 1893 and first commercially produced in 1900, its trade name is derived from the Greek words gala (milk) and lithos (stone). It is odourless, insoluble in water, biodegradable, non-allergenic, antistatic and virtually nonflammable. Talk about environment friendly and sustainable. It also is a joy to work with and polishes up to a lovely transparent deep sheen. What’s not to like? And, true to its heritage and composition, Galaliths tone is slightly mellower and rounded than that produced by its more recent brethren Kirinite, Juma, and epoxy, but offers great clarity and definition.
