J 45 Bubinga


Recommended Posts

Where does Bubinga sonically fall in comparison with the standard Maple, Rosewood, and Mahogany?, strong mids and mellow highs, piercing highs and booming lows, etc.





It is closer to Rosewood than Mahogany, more of a best of both wood worlds. Bubinga is far stronger with enhancing tone than is Maple. Bubinga is also physically "heavier" than mahogany, rosewood, and maple. The tonal spectrum with Bubinga is a sonic mix of lows, mids, and highs clear across the strings. String choice and top wood can vary the sound and projection, but Bubinga as a b/s wood colors the sound with a full, deep, tone more suited to rosewood. It is also visually beautiful.
