«Die Idee»: Tropenholz, made in Switzerland Broadcast in 10vor10 by Swiss national television (SRF) on the inauguration of new production facilities on 29 November 2019.
In November 2017, CEO Oliver Kläusler gave insight into the Sonowood production technology in a live TV broadcast in «Schweiz aktuell» on SRF (see video above, in German). The TV report also focused the application of Sonowood in the musical instrument manufacturing. Boris Haug, violin manufacturer from our premium partner Wilhelm Geigenbau in Suhr, showcased the working procedure necessary to incorporate Sonowood into high-end string instruments. Violist Chin-Ting Huang of the Pacific Quartet Vienna was interviewed and stated to be thoroughly happy about her viola containing a fingerboard made from Sonowood. She praised the superior sound characteristics of her new instrument.
In March 2018, Swiss Wood Solutions was featured in a second broadcast in «Schweiz aktuell». This report focused on the musical manufacturing workshop held with our partner Wilhelm Geigenbau and subsequent concert of the Pacific Quartet Vienna on their instruments fitted with Sonowood.

Sonowood has been very well received and widely applauded in multiple media. In October 2017, the technology was first introduced to a broad public by an article in the magazine EmpaQuarterly. «The technology enables Swiss Wood Solutions to finetune crucial parameters such as color and sound characteristics.»
This introductory article quickly gained interest from numerous high-circulation newspapers in Switzerland. Articles in the highly respected Neue Zürcher Zeitung NZZ as well as Blick and Limmattaler Zeitung followed.
