Engelmann Spruce Top Wood for Violin

About This Item

Found all throughout the vast Rocky Mountain wilderness, Engelmann Spruce is a mature, stable tonewood known for its creamy white complexion and its mature, dynamic voice.

Its voice is rich and full, with many similarities to the more conventional favorite European Spruce.

In appearance, Engelmann is much like German Spruce—creamy white with intense medullary rays in the higher grades—but with a more uniform consistency. The early to late growth rings are often fairly even in appearance. It works much like other spruces, but its surface is very delicate, so it's best to work carefully and ensure your work surface is clear of sawdust and other debris.

In short: Engelmann Spruce is rich, complex, and a fantastic choice for violin builders.

Bookmatched set of two, for joining and carving.

  • Each wedge is approximately 4.5" x 18" (114mm x 457mm)
  • Tapers from approximately 0.85" - 0.40" (21.6mm - 10.16mm)

Spruce for first violin/fiddle

Verified Buyer


I’m following Jon Mangum on Youtube and hoping to build first fiddle. The spruce plates I received from Stew MAC look really nice and should be perfect for this project. I have experience building a few instruments but this is first carving plates. Very excited.
