Indian rosewood, European spruce, Sri Lankan ebony and vintage Cuban mahogany come as standard.

Back and sides upgrade: Honduran, Camatillo, Panamanian or Rio rosewoods, Osage orange, or vintage Cuban mahogany

For soundboards: as well as a wide range of European spruces I have good stocks of both American redwood and Adirondack spruce.

In 2007, I witnessed the effects of unregulated over logging in India. This prompted me to stop buying newly sawn Indian rosewood.

I’ve now decided to stop buying ANY new sawn timber whilst I investigate further into more sustainable sources of tonewood.

In the meantime instruments shall be made from my existing stock.

Please contact me with information or links to sustainable or reclaimed tonewoods, or alternative materials.
