Special Note: We researched the flowers that are native to where you will find Brazilian trees growing in South America, we chose the Cattleya Lily. Our daughter, Rebecca, came up with her own take on this Lily which is comprised of wood and stone.. It just encompasses the look and feel we were intending.

Sound Description: It has the characteristic warmth/reverb that is revered in Brazilian Rosewood, combined with the overtones of the Cedar. The shallower depth should keep it from getting overly warm and complex over time. It has good tonal separation, and wonderful sustain.
