In March 2018, a workshop was held at Wilhelm Geigenbau. Various international violin manufacturers got introduced to Sonowood and manufactured fingerboards from the samples provided. The feedback on processability was uniformly positive.
To finish 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: see the video on our News page, Schweiz Aktuell 02.03.2018.
