SUGGESTED WOOD?

Typical wood &/or lumber suggested for Kovac Harp components (except for Soundboards) include, but are not limited to Western Red Cedar (or South American cedar), Maple, Poplar, Paulownia, various Baltic Birch (Finnish) plywood, select hardwoods (like Red Oak for a few components), and veneered Birch plywood.

Various knotty pines & other wood composites are not recommended. It is best to avoid all standard, industrial & building plywood.

For Soundboards, Luan multiply underlayment, U.S. Western Red Cedar, Aircraft Birch, Spruce, & Paulownia are only recommended. All other plywood is definitely NEVER recommended for any Soundboard application.
