Old Violin

Are boxwood violin parts just as good as rosewood?

I'm looking to replace the pegs and chin rest of an old violin. I was wondering is boxwood is good quality I can't find any info on it. I was leaning toward rosewood but just wondering if it is just as good. I have seen some beautifully crafted boxwood pegs.

Boxwood is mainly hand crafted for the Baroque market. It looks great but is lighter than Rosewood. Remember Rosewood is more expensive than Boxwood Fittings. It retains more value to your instrument and doesn't wear as much ( especially in the pegs). Trust me. I am a Violin maker in Australia. Go Rosewood.
