Customers Rating:
Dalbergia baronii, Madagascar Rosewood, is from the island of Madagascar in Africa.  The colors and tonal properties are very similar to Brazilian rosewood (Dalbergia Nigra).  Black variegated ink lines are present in selected Madagascar Rosewood logs.  These produce stunning wood that is highly favored by luthiers. Colors range from browns to reds with black lines.  The working properties are very similar to Brazilian Rosewood. It glues satisfactorily and takes a high polish.  Tap tone is bright with good sustain.  The supply is getting scarce for any Rosewood but particularly the Madagascar varieties. All of this wood has been in the USA for 9 years, prior to any restrictions placed on importation of Madagascar species. This is a rare opportunity to get nice Madagascar Rosewood boards!  All of this lumber has been kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. This wood is suitable for instruments.
