Engelmann Spruce Lute Tops
- Dimensions: (460x180x4)x2 mm
- Botanical Name: Picea engelmannii
- Origin: Canada
- Density: 350-410 kg/m3
- Quality: These pieces are not classified by qualities and are included within a medium standard of quality, in other words, when we select them we reject the cracked pieces, with serious defects, or broken or useless ones. Therefore, we will always find good pieces that can have some slight defect, nice pieces, or pieces less attractive, always taking in account variations in colour or growth rings that each wood specie may have.
Tops are the part of the instrument that most influences in sound. Our selection is made carefully and we try that all are cut at 90 degrees. Certainly, we will not find tops with big knots that with the time can crack the piece.
