Description Technical Specs
 
Ebony was the wood of choice for Mister Bones during the minstrel era. It is one of the world's hardest woods. Ebony is a dense resonant wood that holds a reputation among woodcrafters as a saw buster.

In 1897 you could buy a set of four 7" ebony bones for thirty-five cents from the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog. Living history performers who do Minstrel era and Civil War gigs should choose ebony minstrel-style bones for the historically accurate design. You will appreciate the sharp powerful tone that cuts through the clamor of festival crowds - and so will those curious onlookers!

Beginner, paired them with my nautical ox shins March 30, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from California  
Since ordering these and some ebony spoons from lark in the morning, I've learned that the sound of ebony on ebony doesn't lend itself to every genre. However, holding one of these as the stationary bone and ox shin as the striking bone yields quite a pleasant sound. Also neat is holding both ebony bones and both ox shins in my off-hand for a "bone-clanking" sound that may lend itself to darker/minor songs.

Ebony on ebony is very poppy, but bone on ebony is sharp. My collection and experience are limited but I think these make good off-hand bones and combine well with real bone.
