Welcome to the only store on the planet where you can get minstrel style bones in rare budget priced exotic woods and 3 standard widths.

Narrow
Narrow Pea Patch Minstrel-style 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
Regular Pea Patch Minstrel-style 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
Wide Pea Patch Minstrel-style 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:

Two pairs (4 individual bones, like in the photo). That's enough to rattle one pair of bones in each hand, or two pairs in one hand.

Description Technical Specs
 
Tigerwood is a rare exotic heavy dense wood that delivers a solid sharp tone—yet is remakably bouyant.

Matched Set
Extremely hard to find item. Few music shops have the knowledge, experience, and large enough inventory to offer matched sets of bones. We've been matching sets for more than a decade. What's more, Pea Patch Bones are designed to our custom specifications. Your matched set was carefully selected by weight, shape, and wood grain—from a single batch of bones. For that reason the likelihood your entire set was crafted from even the same plank of wood is quite possible. So if you want a carefully matched set of premium rhythm bones at a modest price, then you have come to the right place.


The heartwood is a bronze color highlighted by dark variegated streaks. The tiger-like grain is typically interlocked, but sometimes straight. The quartersawn wood produces an attractive ribbon pattern in the grain with alternating zones of dark and light wood figuring.

Tigerwood Bones are typically quite hard and dense. Tigerwood is nearly twice the hardness of oak, yet the wood sports a specific gravity of only .45. That makes tigerwood a very hard dense wood which is remakably bouyant. Most of our pairs seemed quite heavy. So the specific gravity and density data below is misleadingly low. None of the charts we found rated tigerwood with a specific gravity greater than 1.0. Just to find out for ourselves, we tossed a handful of bones into a tub of water to see what happens. The results were enlightening.

Test Results
Bones with a predominance of dark grain sink. Bones with a predominance of light grain float. So the weight, specific gravity, density, and hardness of your pair might be significantly more—or less—than our technical specs depending on the ratio of dark v light grain.
