Ziricote appears to overlay broad-brush brown to black stripes painted over an orange-brown background. This is a very artful and compelling wood choice that would seem to command a much higher price point due to its rich, thick, and exotic coloring. The sound is most appealing. LEHO’s hand selection from so many examples of Ziricote assures you of the best available.
Ziricote is sometimes called Mexican Ebony, though it's not really black and it's not an ebony. he pretty pieces are a dark gray or brown with black streaks, and the really pretty pieces will knock your socks off. It has excellent low dampening qualities similar to most rosewoods with a clean resonant reverbery characteristic. Zircote pairs well with almost any top to bring a wide tonal variety to the builder’s pallet. The tone of Ziricote falls between Indian rosewood and Macassar Ebony, it has more clarity than Indian but provides more overtones than Macassar.
