Grenadilla wood feels consistent, incredibly stable, and very present. The Grenadilla wood vibrates beautifully, creating a chime-like feel with its articulation clarity. Grenadilla is a very durable wood and lends itself to a stable playing experience. This is the traditional wood that most of us are familiar with in a piccolo.
Grenadilla is native to dry areas of Africa. Its appearance is dark brown/black color and tends to darken with age.
