WOOD  -  Our classic core, clear and vibrant sound.
CORK  -   Lighter and more sonorous and rounded sound than wood.
HARD FELT  -  Very warm rounded sound with almost no attack.
Smaller cores (300 & 400 series) - Less power, lighter sound, clearer articulation.
Large cores (500 & 600 series) - Greater power, fullness and tone.
