* note - Rosewood is known for consistently possessing an incredible warmth, evenness, responsiveness and roundness of tonality. Still - like any species of wood, there is a variance from board to board. Sometimes there will be examples of extreme brilliance and other times more pedestrian voicing, a certain element of chance up to the gods of music and nature. That said, even a more ordinary sounding Rosewood drum is still very very lovely; but is priced accordingly. If you are looking for a great deal on a Rosewood 12 key, here's your chance!
