American cherry is an extremely stable, articulate tonewood the falls comfortably between Maple and Mahogany. Its natural light tan / reddish brown color beautifully darkens with age, and its sapwood is more pale with a light pink tone.
Tonally, American Cherry offers quick attack, good balance, and clear note separation. It avoids the dry, sometimes "thin" sound of Maple and instead offers more a pronounced bass and mid-range, with more complex overtones.
Cherry's fine, sometimes wavy grain works well whether by hand or by machine. Although seldom perfectly quartersawn, it is nevertheless strong, hard, and dimensionally stable.
