Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
These were Percy's favorite.

You can get Danforth bones in a variety of woods, but Percy preferred pine because of the soft pleasing tone the wood produced.

The thunderous clack of ebony and rosewood bones reined supreme during the Minstrel era. But Percy, as well as many other experienced players today, often shy away from those heavier weight and sharper tone woods.

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 a "feather-light" pair that generates a tone about as pleasingly soft as musical rhythm bones can get, then these Danforth Pine bones are for you.
  • Handcrafted Pine: Like fine furniture
  • Traditional Minstrel Style Design: Still popular over 150 years
  • Protective Minwax Finish: Keeps bones like new
  • Durable Softwood: Lasts for centuries
