What the professionals say

«I’m excited about Sonowood. The resulting sound for wooden transverse flutes is excellent, it has an enriching new sound nuance.»
— Thomas Aebi, flute manufacturer from Switzerland, 31st August 2018


«It must not be that a disappearing species such as ebony is still used heavily. The urgency to find a new material was strong. It is wonderful to now have such a high-end, ecologically sustainable material at our disposal.»
— Mark Jonathan Wilhem, violin manufacturer from Switzerland, 28th November 2017

«The guitar with a fretboard and bridge from Sonowood possesses a very warm acoustic color. My client is simply thrilled.»

— Mauro Bodio, guitar manufacturer from Switzerland, 4th May 2018 2017

«I have not yet seen a material with such a low damping as Sonowood.»
— Boris Haug, violin manufacturer from Suhr (CH), 28th November 2017


«Ever since the new Sonowood spruce saddle has been inserted on my cello, I have been completely satisfied with the response and sound. The overall sound of my cello has become fuller and warmer, and the strings are now much more balanced. Sonowood appears to be ideal for the transmission of vibrations from the string to the body.»
— Susanne Müller, cellist in the Mozarteumorchester in Salzburg (Austria), 1st October 2018


«Sonowood offers such a straightforward workability, it is sensational.»
— Eric Fouilhé, instrument manufacturer from Valence (France), 2nd March 2018

«Sonowood is soon going to revolutionize the manufacturing of wooden instruments.»

— Fidel Peugeot, guitarist, 12th June 2018

«Sonowood is a very compact material. Nevertheless it is easier to plane and shape than ebony. A pleasant smooth surface results.»
— Philip Ihle, violin manufacturer from London (UK), 2nd March 2018


«Sonowood has convinced me both visually and acoustically. The annual rings are clearly recognizable and contribute to a noble look. The sound is extremely clear and articulated with striking warmth. When processing into components, it becomes clear immediately that Sonowood is very dense and hard. This has a positive effect when bundling and drilling. The material can be sanded easily and does not require any pore fillers. An excellent surface results, especially when applying a shellac polish. Sonowood is clearly superior to conventional woods.»
— Jakob Frank, guitar manufacturer from Pforzheim (Germany), 27th November 2017
