BEAUTIFUL SOUND

Wood for your instrument

 

We choose raw timber from healthy, slowly and straight grown trees. Only the best qualities will be processed to tonewood, because we know how much the wood quality affects the sound of the instrument. Therefore we have choosen from exotic and domestic species and dried the wood very carefully.

For different instruments like guitars, clarinettes, flutes or marimbas there are a number of special species which you can choose from. Every type of wood affects the sound, especially the wood structure, the density and vibration ability.

Besides the often used and well known types like african Blackwood, Boxwood or Ebony, you can also try out other species.

We have so many different species available, the diversity of the wood properties is very big so there can be achieved great results with trying new combinations.

Do not hesitate do ask us if you have any questions.
