What the professionals say

«I’m excited about Sonowood. The resulting sound for wooden transverse flutes is excellent, it has an enriching new sound nuance.»
— Thomas Aebi, flute manufacturer from Switzerland, 31st August 2018


«It must not be that a disappearing species such as ebony is still used heavily. The urgency to find a new material was strong. It is wonderful to now have such a high-end, ecologically sustainable material at our disposal.»
— Mark Jonathan Wilhem, violin manufacturer from Switzerland, 28th November 2017

«The guitar with a fingerboard and bridge from Sonowood possesses a very warm acoustic color. My client is simply thrilled.»

— Mauro Bodio, guitar manufacturer from Switzerland, 4th May 2018 2017

«I have not yet seen a material with such a low damping as Sonowood.»
— Boris Haug, violin manufacturer from Suhr (CH), 28th November 2017


«Sonowood offers such a straightforward workability, it is sensational.»
— Eric Fouilhé, instrument manufacturer from Valence (FR), 2nd March 2018

«Sonowood is soon going to revolutionize the manufacturing of wooden instruments.»
