Tonewoods

Back and Sides

Brazilian Rosewood (Delbergia Nigra)

The following Old Growth Brazilian Rosewood (dalbergia nigra) was found in a storage shed in 2020. It was purchased through a reputable tone wood broker with receipts and documentation that date from late 90’s to 2002.

There are a few flitch sets (ideal), matched sets (typical), non matching sets (not from the same tree) and some “external cut” sides (from the same board but not consecutive). Most set are clean, others have light worm holes and a few have repairs probability to stabilize cracks during processing.

Sets are listed based on common industry standard models avoiding cracks, repairs and wormholes when possible. If side are irregular, the available dimensions should support the chosen model. If makers are willing to deal with small issues, many of the OM, 0 and 00 classed sets will make D sized guitars. Prices are set accordingly with new sets added weekly until supply runs out.

No shipments out of the United States.

Sound Boards

Bryan’s sonically rated tone wood system was developed through decades of testing and application that provides a reliable marker so Luthiers can control and push the parameters of their building materials.

The data that generates Bryan’s sonic ratings is generated by Bryan’s Instrument Making Software that ties the ratings to solid time tested Lutherie fundamentals. Furthermore this system provides Bryan’s “Application Value” that matches the sound boards to players preferences and a “Stiffness Value” for accurately thinning sound boards.

Sound boards will be available June 5th 2020
