Description Technical Specs
Exotic Tapered Ebony Bones Deliver Clear Sharp Tone

Easy to Grip, Easy to Play
The main feature about these bones is the taper. They are designed to be thin at the top and thick at the bottom. Some players find the thin top more comfortable to grip than standard-width bones. But the engineering "magic" comes from the thicker bottom segment of the bones. The thicker width adds extra weight which provides more kinetic energy at the bottom where the bones strike together, and that makes the bones easier to click. At least that is the theory.

Exotic Ebony Delivers Clear Sharp Tone
Ebony was the wood of choice for "Mister Bones" during the minstrel era. It is one of the world's hardest woods. Ebony is a dense resonant wood that holds a reputation among woodcrafters as a saw buster. Experienced players appreciate the sharp powerful tone that cuts through the clamor and gets noticed.

Great for Kids and People with Small Hands
The narrow (7/8") width makes these bones ideal for kids and other players with small hands. Another advantage you will like is the taper, because the thin top makes for a more comfortable grip between your fingers.

Narrow Width and Crisp Sharp Tone
Narrow & Thin: Advantage or disadvantage? You decide--
At 7/8" wide, these bones are rather narrow. I prefer wider bones because they are easier for my "regular" size hands to grip. And wide bones make it easier to generate a greater dynamic tonal range (especially using the two-finger "Irish" style grip pictured above). These ebony bones are also rather thin. Some players with smaller hands might consider this an advantage. However, I would prefer them more massive. But no matter what your hand size, if you enjoy the traditional American (one-finger-between-the-bones "minstrel") style of playing, I think you will be delighted with the sharp, crisp and clear tone of these narrow bones.

Why Choose these Bones?
If you have small or medium size hands; want exotic ebony musical instruments at a budget price; want bones that are comfortable on your fingers and produce a sharp tone, then Dobani Tapered Ebony Bones are for you.
