Welcome to the only store on the planet where you can get unique half-round bones at deeply discounted prices in rare exotic woods and 3 standard widths—

Narrow half-round bones are just 1" (2.5 cm) in width. The slim width makes them relatively light in weight and easy to grip. These bones are perfect for smaller hands or players who prefer narrow instruments.

Regular half-round bones are a moderate 1-1/8" (2.9 cm) in width. The traditional design is perfect for most hand sizes and the shape delivers a superior dynamic tonal range.

Wide half-round bones are a broad 1-1/4" (3.2 cm) in width. The brawny shape provides substantial heft and creates a powerful presence. They feel quite stout and burly.

Here's What You Get:
One pair (2 individual bones, like in the photo). That's enough to rattle the bones in one hand.

List Price $24.00 pair
Closeout Price: $11.99 pair
You save $12.01!

Special Offer: Hurry—order now. When they're gone...they're gone.

Description Technical Specs
Rosewood is a rare exotic heavy dense wood that delivers a high sharp tone.

It varies in color from shades of brown to red or chocolate to violet, and is irregularly streaked with black. The grain is typically straight, but occasionally wavy. Its texture is medium to rather coarse and the wood has large pores that are quite irregular in size and position. The surface is slightly oily or waxy in appearance, somewhat gritty to the touch, and very resistant to decay and insect attack.

When cut, rosewood releases a fragrant aroma similar to roses. The fragrance has also been reported when the wood is burned (but you are wise not to mention this aspect to your detractors). Rosewood has a distinctive taste, I am told - and I will just take their word for it.

None of the charts I found rated rosewood with a specific gravity greater than 1.0. This surprised me as rosewood is a very hard and dense wood. So I tossed several pairs of these Rosewood Minstrel-style Bones into a tub of water to see what happens. As I expected, the darker, denser pairs sunk. But the lighter color pairs floated. So some pairs will have a specific gravity greater than 1.0, but the specific gravity of some pairs will be less.

Figures below are approximate (but pretty darn close)

  8. Outstanding Value: Yours for a steal. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
