Since 2009, in close cooperation with two Dutch scientists we have developed a reliable system to transform physical measurements and their acoustical consequences to influence the instrument’s character. The result is the creation of acoustically superior instruments in a workshop setting.
The process begins with the selection of tonewood from our extensive inventory of European aged timbers. We quantitatively measure the quality of our wood under different physical aspects in order to arrive at an objective and clear determination of the qualities of the woods used. During the making process, the natural acoustic properties of the instrument components are continuously measured and monitored.
The result is a unique development of each piece of wood. Components are then perfectly matched and harmonized together – according to the carefully determined natural acoustical characteristics of the wood – to maximize the instrument’s potential.
