Description Technical Specs The Inside Story...
If you like Ebony bones, then you will absolutely love Rosewood.

Yes, the wood of choice for Mister Bones during the Minstrel era was ebony. But rosewood was also prominent, and vintage rosewood bones continually surface in antique shops.

Rosewood is a strong heavy wood that often features an extraordinary appealing grain. Its density and excellent resonance enable you to deliver a loud, sharp tone that most other woods cannot match. In 1897 you could buy a set of four 7" rosewood bones for 20 cents in the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog.

Living history performers will want to choose rosewood for its historical significance as well as the powerful sharp tone outdoor crowds can hear above the din.
