Restrictions on Bubinga Wood



UPDATE: 19/5/17 There still appears to be a lot of confusion and unanswered questions about the import of rosewood (including bubinga). For an insight about the situation from the UK Music Industries Association point of view see:

http://www.mia.org.uk/2017/05/rosewood-ivory-nickel-update/

Due to new CITES (
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) regulations which came into effect on January 2nd 2017 there are certain restrictions on the importation and exportation of rosewood instruments. This includes bubinga wood, which is an option for Dusty Strings' FH 34 and FH 36 harps.

Dusty Strings are working with the responsible agencies in order to obtain the relevant permits they would require to export Bubinga harps, but this could take a few months.

If you have any queries about the availability of bubinga harps, please contact us directly on 01367 860493.
