OUR MATERIALS
The Wood we use

Body:
Local tradition considers walnut and mulberry appropriate for the construction of the body. However, we believe that one should neither ignore nor exclude the wood that is suggested in the international literature on the subject which has been tested by traditional instrument makers around the world.

I. Walnut (Juglans regia).
II. Mulberry (Μorus nigra & Morus alba)
III. Rosewoodι : Jaracanda | Pernabuco | Rosewood Δυτικών Ινδιών
IV. Maple (Acer campestre & Acer platanoides):
V. Combination

Concave strips (Carvin). :
Another possible approach to the construction of the body is to choose a body made with concave strips (Carvin). Note: Instrument makers in centuries past have strengthened of the contribution of the body to the final acoustic effect. One method that emerges from the European tradition is to construct the wood strips in the manner of the Renaissance lute. The strips are indented on their interior side through the removal of part of the wood.

Woods used for Tops:
Each type of top has its own acoustic qualities. It is for that reason that we offer a variety of different tops which allow for different acoustic effects. In our tops, we use spruce from central Europe and North America. More specifically, we use spruce from Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Rumania; and Sitca Spruce and Cedar from North America. All the varieties of wood that we use are well aged and we do not use wood that has been harvested illegally. According to the assurances of our suppliers, our wood comes from trees that have fallen due to natural causes.
