Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
Tulipwood is a rare exotic wood that delivers a high somewhat sharp tone.

Another of the true rosewoods, tulipwood is hard and heavy and takes an excellent lustre when polished. It has a pleasing fragrance when milled. Its handsome color displays irregular wide striped shades of darker pink and violet on a pinkish yellow straw-colored background.

Native to tropical South America, especially northeastern Brazil, Tulipwood trees do not grow very large. Indeed, it is rare to find boards more than 4" wide and 3 feet long.

Tulipwood is a rare find in quartersawn stock, which makes special products such as these Shooting Star Tulipwood Bones all the more desirable.

Figures are approximate (but pretty darn close)--
Width: 7/8" to 1-3/8"
Specific Gravity: .96
