Wilhelm Geigenbau

Wilhelm Geigenbau has been a partner of Swiss Wood Solutions since 2016. Numerous violins, violas and cellos have been equipped with Sonowood. In March 2018, a workshop was held to evaluate the competitiveness of Sonowood in comparison to tropical woods. Various international violin makers got introduced to Sonowood and manufactured fingerboards from the samples provided. The feedback on processability was uniformly positive. To finish off the one-week workshop on a high note, the Pacific Quartet Vienna held its inaugural concert with their instruments featuring Sonowood. The musicians reacted very positively to the improved sound characteristics of their respective instruments.

The Swiss national TV captured the results of the workshop in a broadcast.

Canna Guitars

Under the label Canna Guitars and in cooperation with Norbert Schmid of DRUMPARAM, Jakob Frank manufactures instruments whose body is made of Hempstone, a patented natural fibre material made of hemp fibres and water. On his latest model, he used Sonowood for the fingerboard, bridge and the headstock. The result is an aesthetically and acoustically appealing guitar that is completely free of tropical woods.
