The very hard grenadill wood adds depth to the sound and more responsive articulation, especially in the lower register of the instrument.
Grenadill aka. African Blackwood is considered to be among the very finest of all turning woods. When made into clarinet or oboe bodies, the wood is typically processed on metal-working equipment, giving it a reputation as being metal-like in some of its working properties. Often completely black, with little or no discernible grain.
Brass ring with wooden insert. Water and sweat-proof coating.
Comes in a cotton pouch.
