For those in the know. . . I'm curious as to whether Macassar ebony has different tonal properties than Gabon ebony? I'm speaking generally here, I realize that different pieces of the same wood will not sound exactly alike - so here is my "all other things being equal" caveat. It seems that the Gabon ebony boards I've heard have sounded a bit brighter and more "compressed," sometimes even brittle to the Macassar which has seemed somewhat warmer and more open, but I've had limited experience with them both. Any thoughts? Oh, and if this should be in a different forum please feel free to move it friendly moderators. Thanks in advance. . .
