Just an idle question. Just wondering, with the scarcity of pernambuco, if anyone has tried to replicate its features by laminating different types of wood together.

Something for strength, something for transmission of sound, etc.

I have no idea what woods should be used. Just blue skying a question. I am not a luthier.

Different wood spieces have very good results. Woods like IPE, massaradumba etc. Also carbon bows have succes. There are many experimens on different woods and materials. The "resourses" section has articles on such kind of woods.

Not a luthier? ... Perhaps an archetier? ... If not, time to become one!
Cheers, Mat
