Curly Tasmanian Blackwood

Acacia Melanoxylon:
 Tasmanian Blackwood is dense and resonant wood from the forests of Tasmanian. It is grown sustainably , and it can cross borders without Cites restrictions.

The Sound: Tasmanian Blackwood has a bright resonant response as it is denser than acacia wood grown closer to the equator. It crosses the resonance of rosewoods with  the sweetness of Mahogany & Koa.

The colors vary from reddish browns to dark browns. The curl figure is quite tight and uniform for the most part, though some of the drop tops have quite large explosive flame curl.

The boards on this set are warped in a long twist
