W is for...

W is for wood


Each violin is made of several types of wood. The most common types of wood used are maple (back, ribs, neck and scroll), spruce (front) and ebony (pegs, fingerboard, tailpiece and end button). Other woods that might be used include willow and rosewood. The standard wood used to make a bow is pernambuco wood.
