Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
Cocobolo is a luxurious exotic wood that delivers a remarkably powerful low tone.

Cocobolo ranks high among my favorite musical woods because of the rich full tone they produce. The material is quite hard and dense, and even a large block will produce a clear musical tone when struck. Its fine texture and oily look and feel stand up well to repeated handling.

This beautiful hardwood from Central America is typically orange or reddish-brown in color, often with a figuring of darker irregular traces weaving through the wood.

Only relatively small amounts of this prized wood reach the world market which explains why it is so expensive.

Cocobolo is highly favored for fine inlay work, knife handles, musical instruments, pistol grips, veneers, bowls, jewelry boxes, and other expensive specialty items. It is also used in making luxury pens, and has been used as a ballast wood in ships.

Cocobolo wood has a specific gravity of over 1.0, hence it will sink in water.
