Brazilian Kingwood :
Latin: Dalbergia cearensis Origin: Brazil. Kingwood Is one of the most beautiful of the Rosewood species. The deep purple-brown coloring with darker grain streaks and swirls are unique and the light sap is a very nice contrast. It is extremely strong and dense, but turns and polishes to a high sheen. Kingwood has a very similar “bell like” tap tone to Brazilian Rosewood.  Kingwood is very rare in itself and is an exceptional acoustic wood !
