Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
Reclaimed Pine from 100-year-old barn.

Great Sounding Bones Made from Salvaged Barn Wood
These Pine bones are made of wood reclaimed from a 100-year-old Michigan barn that was torn down to make room for a subdivision. As you can see from the pictures, these bones are rich with character. Some of the bones are knotty, some are not. And a select few pairs sport small nail holes which are environmentally fashionable - and yours at no additional charge. At around 1.5 ounces per pair, they are a smidge heavier than regular Danforth Pine Bones, which I think is an advantage.

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.

So if you want to try a "feather-light" pair of bones that are environmentally friendly and sound about as pleasingly soft as musical rhythm bones can get, then these Danforth Pine reclaimed 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

5 of 5 Great Bones September 18, 2015
Reviewer: Paul from Wixom, MI United States  
These pine bones have a great sound. Historically I have used hardwood bones, but these will give me more range in my playing.
