Pro Model - Matthew Rice

Our team is the best

We first met Matt at a Kengarden battle in San Francisco many years ago, and then asked him to join the team a short while later. He chose to make his pro model out of zebrano and black walnut, topped with a white ash tama. Given the heavily contrasting grain of zebrano, each piece is very unique, and absolutely beautiful!

Zebrano is well-loved for it's wild and highly contrasted grain, and is also known to have a very nice sturdy feel when playing.
Black Walnut is a beautiful species that stands out for it's chocolate coloured grain. It has a crisp feel when playing.
White Ash tamas are a player favourite. It has prominent grain, a crisp feel, and very clean sound when playing. 
Avg Weight: 86.8 gram ken / 89.3 gram tama
