This larger version of our popular and affordable Prelude model is built with laminated Finland birch soundboard and back. Exceptionally sturdy and stable, it offers a sweet, balanced sound over its three octave range. Extending the standard 2½ octave range downward, this instrument opens up a wider choice of playing keys and affords greater versatility in arranging melodies and harmonies.

The Overture is available as an instrument only (including hammers and a tuning wrench) or as a package with a C45 case and folding sit-down stand, providing a complete ready-to-go option. There is also the option to choose a striking black finish instead of the standard clear lacquer. For an idea of what this looks like, see the Apprentice, which is the smaller version of the black Overture.
