Sitka Spruce Flat Top Soundboards
moistened to show color
Sitka Spruce is an industry standard, tough and well suited for soundboards. Our current selection is old growth, originally harvested from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State during the mid 1900’s, processed into soundboards, and then stacked in storage for over 30 years until we acquired it. The wood is tight grain with strong medullary rays in most sets and a bit of curl and bearclaw as well. Photos below are taken without moistening the wood.
