Testimonials

After three orders of fingerboards, and finding them to be exactly what I ordered, I felt I needed to tell everybody these people and the products they sell are excellent! They made a special effort to send my request for a specific color, it was perfect! The wood in these boards is awesome. Thank you very much for attention to my wishes.

Diospyros ebenum

Indian Ebony is less plentiful than West African Ebony and so you are less likely to find it in the market place, though it is commonly used for violin and other bowed instrument fittings. The wood is about 8% lower in weight than African Ebony, but has equal (excellent) compression strength and is similarly stable. We are assured of responsible harvest practices with third party oversight. Because we have not carried it long, we are not certain that the supply of this fine wood will be steady in the future.

Indian Ebony is notorious for its mineral spots and our fingerboards are no exception. These spots are easy to camouflage. We recommend using one of the following products to darken your fingerboards:
