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.
