Birdseye Maple, Ebony and a varied mixture of point veneers and inserts. Schon Custom Cues came into existence in 1981 and have been at their Burnham St. location in Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 1986. They have a miniscule output, sometimes going two weeks without actually finishing any cues! Schon is one of the oldest custom cuemakers in the world with a total staff today of only five people. Each cue is personally designed, finished, and tested by Evan Clarke himself. Everyone at Schon is a full time craftsman, not telemarketers or corporate hypsters. The only thing they do is make cues... The cue butts are built on a special hybrid core of laminated woods. All materials are of high integrity...White inlays are elephant ivory, black is ebony, etc. The joint is a Phenolic lined stainless steel with stainless steel pin. Butt plates are high impact delrin. The joint is piloted and mates with a phenolic cushioned brass insert on the shaft. Schon cues are made in small lots (6 or so each time). Photos are representations; woods, ring setups and buttplates vary from lot to lot. Includes a FREE 1x1 Giuseppe black hard carry case!
