There are many essences of acoustic sound and these two unconventional models offer you a whole new way of looking at it. The warm and open sound of a Hybrid or the vivid sound of a Bona Vida, we let the decision up to you.


Spontaneous idea transformed into perfect instrument
First Dowina Hybrid was created as a custom order for a fantastic Ireland based musician Steve Cooney. As a professional player he was looking for a robust and full sound while enjoying the comfort of nylon string. That’s how the Hybrid was born.
