Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
Ultra-soft and light-weight yet durable cedar bones produce warm tone with a punch.

Percy Danforth preferred pine because of the soft pleasing tone the wood produced. But I can't help but wonder what Percy would have thought of these ultra-soft Cedar bones.

Cedar, pine and fir are classified as a softwoods. Cedar is softer and lighter in weight than pine - but more dense. These soft yet dense cedar musical bones produce a warm tone with a punch. And they smell good too. This comment came from a customer in Middletown, Maryland:
"Interesting with the cedar, the fragrance started coming out as I was playing them."

Personally, I prefer medium to heavy weight bones because they provide the kinetic force I need to make them click with ease. But if you want to try an "ultra-light" pair of bones with exceptional structural rigidity that generates a pleasing tone (plus a pleasing scent) that Percy himself would surely have loved, then these Danforth Cedar bones are for you.
  • Handcrafted Cedar: Like fine lawn furniture
  • Traditional Minstrel Style Design: Still popular over 150 years
  • Protective Minwax Finish: Keeps bones like new
  • Durable Softwood: Lasts for centuries
