Here is what the Tonewood Data Source says about this Tone- wood.[URL=][/URL]
Lapacho
Round basses and very clear trebles, competes with Brazilian rosewood when it comes to punch and definition of voices. Superb tap tone and a collectible since only a few Lapacho guitars have ever been built. The wood is incredibly hard but the luthier is filled with pride when he hears the sound of the finished instrument. It is simply stunning.
Its dust can cause a number of respiratory and contact dermatitis allergic reactions in humans,an amazing wood, but no sense in risking your health!


Lapacho
is one of the hardest woods on the planet,almost 3x harder than Oak. It has a fire rating of A1 (the highest possible, the same as concrete), and is denser than water (it sinks).  It’s recommended that you use name brand carbide tipped tools, keep edges sharp, and always pre-drill for screws. Have numerous extra drill bits handy.

Janka hardness rating……
  Hard Maple (Janka 1450)… Oak (Janka 1360)….Lapacho (Janka 3680)
You have peaked my interest my friend... Looking forward to more of the beautiful wood.

Thank you :)

 

They are African Blackwood. I got a local woodturner to make them (we came up with the design together). He finished them with one coat of wax and buffed them. That was it...in person they show rather nice subtle brown highlights in the black. He's also made some in Paduak for for me. I definitely prefer the sound of the Blackwood.

 

I was inspired to keep the old SR80 grills after seeing the stuff over at Headphile.

Update: Making progress...I can only hope they turn out half as good as the ones pictured here recently. Great job. Ps, these are my first attempts at making cups!

Leaving aside some of the most beautiful cups I ever seen, for those looking for a cheap/nice headband, I found the cheapest urbanears plattan look-a-like (knock-off) for 9$ shipped.
