Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter was a blues musician from Louisiana; he was a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a master of the 12-string and Kurt Cobain’s favorite performer. The Electric Leadbelly echoes that fuzz and crackle of an old blues recording, with a stainless steel wire frame cutting through a handcrafted Italian acetate frame. Details like the emblem on the custom hinge and the sculpted nose bridge further the sense of craftsmanship, while a bevy of technical features make clarity a priority. Most notable among Electric’s lens technology is the Melanin CR39 composite, which strives to “combine the optical clarity of glass with the durability of a thermoset material.” While we haven’t purposefully bashed the Leadbelly to bits, it seems to possess the longevity of a timeless blues track.
