Our woods are an important basic requirement of the foundation of our firm.

We do not seek the cheapest woods nor the most expensive, only the best! We seek out the most appropriate trees and supervise the cutting into planks. The further cutting into blocks we do ourselves. And, old-fashioned as it sounds, we determine the best application of the wood, by tapping on it. Systematic acoustic wood research permits us to know the best wood for each instrument.


In addition, the knowledge of the handling of woods in past epochs, as well as the manufacture of modern instruments allows us to ensure the best treatment of each instrument.
