East Indian Rosewood, Dalbergia latifolia
One of the first great alternatives to Brazilian Rosewood, East Indian Rosewood is versatile, powerful, and one of the most popular tonewoods of the past 40 years. Loved by flatpickers for its volume and booming low-end growl and by fingerpickers for its sparkling highs and distinct note separation—it can at times be precisely delicate and at others unapologetically thunderous.

East Indian Rosewood works equally well by hand or by machine and it bends quite comfortably. Although it''s slightly less dense than Brazilian Rosewood, it is generally more dimensionally stable and significantly less prone to cracking.

East Indian Rosewood is visually stunning as well, with hues of chocolate brown commonly found alongside hints of gold, red and purple. All of this adds up to a tonewood that is dependably workable and audibly remarkable.

All WOODSTAX items come with our 100% satisfaction promise and no-hassle returns. If you are unhappy with the wood once you get it, simply return it in its original, unworked condition for a full refund or exchange.
