Tasmanian Blackwood is one of the most highly valued tonewoods. A distant cousin of Hawaii Koa. But in the words of a lot of luthiers Tasmanian Blackwood has more density and has a better tap tone than Koa. Blackwood produces a beautiful lustre, fiddleback and quilted available on a small scale, the variety of tonings range from light golden browns to deep browns, sometimes a reddish tint and occasionally showing black streaks. Stable and easy to work, acoustically it has warm woody tones similar to that of Mahogany and the brightness of Rosewood. Blackwood is an all around excellent tonewood well suited for various playing styles. Blackwood also makes an excellent Soundboard.

Our tonewood is offered professionally bandsawn and dressed to 4mm to enable the individual maker to thickness to their own desired dimension.  The pics are shown as the product will be supplied, however, this a batch of 6 sets, so the pic is a random set chosen from the bunch.  If you require a pic of the actual set to be supplied, let us know and we’ll txt’d or email you.
