Description Technical Specs
 
Boxwood is a hard, close-grained and heavy exotic evergreen native to England and Turkey that delivers a strong sharp tone.

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.



This intriguing wood comes from a shrub that usually stands no higher than 3 feet at maturity and can take a century to reach a trunk diameter of—3 inches! Despite its small size, Boxwood produces extremely dense wood that is so heavy it barely floats. Some folks call it "white ebony."

Boxwood is a knotty wood noted for a creamy yellowish tan heartwood that is indistinguishable from the sapwood. The timber is a pale yellow when freshly cut, then slowly changes to a warm brownish yellow with exposure. The unusual wood exhibits a very fine uniform texture featuring a rich and satiny luster.
