Only the finest instrument-grade grenadilla and rosewood is used to handcraft Cooperman professional model fifes, and we bring the same level of commitment to quality to our student models in granadillo wood and FDA-approved plastic. We work closely with some of the best fifers in the world in designing and creating instruments that are used in performance by marching corps playing both traditional and original tunes, folk artists playing music representing a wide variety of cultural influences, and woodwind artists playing complex early music and modern arrangements.
