We started this tonewood business to provide violin makers in the United States with the highest quality European tonewood for their instruments. We work closely with trusted suppliers in Europe and a German Violin Maker ("Geigenbaumeister") to select our wood directly from companies that have long standing experience with the selection and seasoning of tonewood (please see "Our suppliers
" for more information) . The name of the specific supplier is included in the respective product description.
Great wood for great instruments
We are passionate about music, violin making, and finding the highest quality wood for our customers. By providing high resolution pictures, estimated densities and speed of sound measurements we hope to provide all the information you need to find exactly the wood you are looking for.
What you see is what you will get
All our wood ships directly from our company in Newtown Connecticut (zip code 06470). Our US customers will therefore not have to deal with import formalities or customs duties.
Please note that we currently only ship within the United States (lower 48 states).
Please contact us directly for shipping to Alaska or Hawaii.
We hope you will enjoy this store and find something you like. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us in case you have questions regarding our products or suggestions/wishes regarding the store.
