Red ("Adirondack") Spruce mandolin top - First Quality
[MNDPR1]
$35.00

Red spruce (Picea rubens) top for mandolin. Often called "Adirondack Spruce" in the musical instrument world, red spruce occurs in higher elevations of the Appalachians as well as farther north in eastern North America. We harvest our red spruce in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia, where it grows at elevations of 3500' msl or more. Once covering more than 700,000 acres of the State, red spruce now is estimated to cover only 50,000 acres of West Virginia. A superb, but scarce, tonewood for the mandolin. Red spruce generally has wider grain and more defects allowable with respect to a grade than the Carpathian spruce. Limited supply. This batch has annular rings at 10-14 per inch. This is our "First" grade. Photo shows examples of First grade red spruce mandolin tops. This photo is for reference - all pieces are unique and vary.
