Maple is a popular domestic wood that delivers a magnificent medium soft low tone.

The wood is a uniformly pale reddish brown to light tan. It has a fine uniform texture and is very strong and hard with close grain. Because of its strength and stiffness, it ranks as one of the more valuable hardwoods.

The wood has a very fine and even texture, and the grain is typically straight, but it can also be curly or wavy. The wood is described as close-grained and subdued, sometimes with decorative figuring including, bird's eye, maple burl, blistered, leaf, and fiddleback.

Many players prefer maple because of its comfortable grip and heft, and for the nice warm tone it generates.
