Botanical Name:Milletia Laurentii
Density:ca. 850 kg/m³
Who does not know the Wenge, its black and brown color is unmistakable. Very oily and hard to work. Due to its large amount of oil reduces high frequencies but surprisingly retains the definition of notes. Personally I do not like working this wood, but I must admit that the results are very good.
Typically used for any part of the instrument, bodies, necks, fingerboards, etc ... the problem is the weight, a body made of Wenge is extremely heavy, so we recommend creating internal chambers to reduce weight.
Milletia Laurentii doesn't appear on the list Cites, so it doesn't need certification any kind.
