String instrument making is emotional. Many instruments are unique and carefully handcrafted. This is exactly the case with Sonowood as well. We manufacture each piece individually, no fingerboard resembles the next. The aesthetics and the extraordinary hardness and density guarantee excellent performance.

We offer fittings as well as squared timbers in spruce (Picea abies) and maple (Acer pseudoplatanus). We use wood from sustainable Swiss forestry, mainly from the cantons of Zurich and Grisons.

Find our current assortment below. Technical data on Sonowood maple, Sonowood walnut and Sonowood spruce can be found here.
