Brazilian Rosewood, like other exploited hardwoods such as Cuban Mahogany or Teak, has earned worldwide fame. Historically, it has perhaps been the species most frequently associated with the term “Rosewood,” and with its strength, hardness, stability, beauty, and acoustic properties, it’s easy to see why Dalbergia nigra has been used for everything from flooring to xylophone keys.

Due to the high demand and limited supply of Brazilian Rosewood, and its continued exploitation in recent decades, it has been listed in the most restrictive category of endangered species: CITES Appendix I. Not only is the lumber restricted from being imported or exported from country to country, but even finished products made of Brazilian Rosewood may not cross international boundaries.
Because of these heavy (yet justifiable) restrictions, several substitutes from the Dalbergia genus have been used in recent years, such as East Indian Rosewood, Honduran Rosewood, and Cocobolo; though perhaps the closest rosewood in terms of color and appearance may be Amazon Rosewood (Dalbergia spruceana)—another hard-to-find and pricey rosewood, though not CITES listed as Brazilian Rosewood.

Quenas de incienso con guayacán, gruesas con agujeros grandes y pesadas, 
Guayacan / Brown Ebony: Being that the term “ebony” is synonymous with black, the term “Brown Ebony” may be somewhat of a oxymoron. Brown Ebony is not in the Diospyros genus, and isn’t considered a true ebony. Botanically, the wood is actually more closely related to Brazilwood—well known for its use in violin bows. Common Name(s): Brown Ebony, Guayacan. Scientific Name: Caesalpinia spp. (C. granadillo, C. paraguariensis, C. pluviosa)
Sandalwood: Is the name of a class of woods from trees in the genus Santalum. The woods are heavy, yellow, and fine-grained, and unlike many other aromatic woods, they retain their fragrance for decades. Sandalwood oil is extracted from the woods for use. Both the wood and the oil produce a distinctive fragrance that has been highly valued for centuries. Consequently, species of these slow-growing trees have suffered over-harvesting in the past century.

Professional wood quena made of red anchico (Timborana). It has clavo de pino embedded in the notch. This quena has very thick walls and 19mm of internal diameter. It is for advanced quena players since it requires potency when playing.
Quena de madera de anchico (colorado) y embocadura de clavo de pino marmolado. Tengo poco de ese clavo, que es muy especial por su veta. Es una quena de 19 mm, pared gruesa, pesada


Woods Used in this quena:

In the United States, Timborana is used mainly for flooring material. It is also occasionally imported as turning stock. Within its native range, Timborana is also used for heavy construction, interior millwork, and furniture. It's dense, wood is resistant to the elements and is used for construction, carpentry, beams for bridges and poles. The wood is said to be unaffected by insects including termites and it can last more than 20 years unpainted.

Clavo de Pino: Belonging to the south hemisphere and  counterpart to the Pinus genus. Also called monkey puzzle. So named from early seeds brought to the UK and grown as ornamental trees, which caused initial observers to remark that the spiny branches would be a puzzle for a monkey to climb. 
The national tree of Chile, Monkey Puzzle is sometimes referred to as Chilean Pine, though it’s not technically a true pine in the Pinus genus, which is essentially restricted to the northern hemisphere. However, Monkey Puzzle is a member of the Araucaria genus, which could be considered a southern hemisphere counterpart to the Pinus genus.
