Sustainable wood for
musical instruments.

Sonowood Kanthölzer für Musikinstrumente - z.B. Streichinstrumente und Zupfinstrumente (Gitarren)

Sonowood makes your instrument sound better.

Traditionally, tropical woods are used for the construction of musical instruments. The problem with this is that, due to worldwide overexploitation, the stocks of most tropical wood species are now in sharp decline, with the threat of their complete disappearance. As a result, less and less satisfactory qualities and quantities are available, and ever stricter import and trade regulations such as CITES are being enacted.

For this reason, we have developed Sonowood. For this purpose, domestic woods from sustainable forestry are modified in such a way that they maintain or even exceed the highly valued physical-mechanical properties of tropical wood.

Sonowood is the best alternative wood for your musical instrument, made from 100% sustainable material free of ethical and moral concerns.
