Ebony was the wood of choice for Mister Bones on the professional minstrel stage.

Danforth Ebony Bones have been discontinued. The closest alternative is Pea Patch Minstrel-style Ebony Bones (narrow). For other alternatives see our selection of Minstrel Style Bones.

Ebony is one of the world's hardest woods. It is a dense resonant material 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 in the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog.

Living history performers who do Minstrel era and Civil War gigs should choose Danforth ebony bones for the historically accurate design. And you (as well as those curious onlookers) will appreciate the sharp powerful tone that cuts through the clamor of the festival crowds.
