Suggested Retail Pricing

These prices are offered only as general retail pricing guides only. Pricing can change at any time without notice via this website. Inventory from these firms can change and actually do fairly frequently. Each company is independant with no direct affiliation with other companies represented. Each, therefore, has the right to set their own standards, minimums and price structures.

The minimum purchases vary from company to company as will minimums for wholesale pricing. Although we can give some general pricing guidelines, you are encouraged to be in touch with the firm(s) of interest for final negotiations and pricing. This is especially true if you expect to buy in wholesale quantities and pricing.

We request some note (email/quote request, etc.) that is proof of our part in introducting the firm of interest to you - and a mention of our name when you contact these firms.

Dr. Persram handles only retail quantities. A general guideline is that most wood being purchased is sent via Guyana mail and as such is limited to their weight (44 lb. per package) and size restrictions (Max. length 42 inches, max. length and width together is 79 inches.). In some cases for a somewhat smaller order, he can send multiple boxes of wood.

The variety of woods that he can offer is exceptionally large. However, there are some woods that he can supply more readily. He is most noted for supplying high quality Snakewood and other stringed instrument wood. Dr. Persram has done actual research into new substitutes for bow material from the woods that he can offer. Pernambuco, the favoured bow wood for centuries, has become very scarce and expensive.

Over recent months, he has shared that he has at least 4,000 lb. of Snakewood. With special woods like this, often only a small percentage of the woods yield classical exotic figure and this is true of Snakewood. All Snakewood is dark, hard and heavy. Snakewood logs themselves are rare --- so that by the time you find truly highly figured Snakewood, you have a rare item indeed. Unfigured snakewood can sell for as little as $4.50 U.S. per pound, while you should expect figured Snakewood to start at $8.00/lb. and up.

For the best pricing and knowledge of what stock David has at any one time, we recommend that you be in touch directly. All we ask is some proof, such as an email message (eg. a quote request) that Exotic Wood Source has provided an introduction to you.

    The sizes of the boards, burls and veneer offered by Talarico Hardwoods can vary wildly as does the wild grain patterns, variety of species, thickness and colours. Many boards become priced individually with stock changing both in items sold and new logs and boards coming in. Most of this wood is far from mill run but averages spectacular and rare to find. You are invited and recommended to be in touch with Sam Talarico to get the first word on what is in stock each day and what prices will be for the boards of interest to you. All we ask is some proof, such as an email message (eg. a quote request) that Exotic Wood Source has provided an introduction to you.

    If Sam does not have just what you are looking for, for those with discriminating tastes and and a substantial budget, he has been known to even search out the wood you wish. In some cases, this has even required a special trip to Europe just to meet the requirements of one client!
