Ipe wood is found in South America. It is very similar to Pernambuco wood, but is not an endangered species so the wood is a lot more accessible. It is also a very strong and dense wood, great for making viola bows! Ipe is the best option for players looking for a quality bow under the price of a real Pernambuco bow.
