Grenadilla wood feels consistent, incredibly stable, and very present. The Grenadilla wood vibrates beautifully, eliciting the characteristic warmth of the wood sound, along with a chime-like clarity of articulation. Grenadilla is a very durable wood and lends itself to a stable playing experience, making it one of the most common woods used on traditional wood flutes.
Grenadilla is native to dry areas of Africa. Its appearance is dark brown/black color and tends to darken with age.
