Wood for violins - Wook for violas - Wook for cellos

Wood for String Instruments

  • Violin
    <h2>Buy the best maple trees for violin making online</h2> <p>The ancient Cremonese violins were built with maple from the Balkans and spruce from the Italian Alps. For over 20 years, Grandi Liutai Italiani has been traveling to Bosnia, Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro to select the best maple trees for making violins. Although the violin is a small instrument, it needs a very light wood but at the same time very rich in medullary rays which make it rigid in a transversal sense. The right combination of lightness and rapid sound transmission make the wood of Grandi Liutai Italiani the favourite of some of the best professional luthiers for the making of their violins.</p> <h3>Here is the best selection of woods chosen by professional luthiers</h3> <div id="gtx-trans"> <div class="gtx-trans-icon"></div> </div>
  • Viola
    <h2>Online sale of wood to build violets</h2> <p>The wood used by luthiers to make violas is often very different from the one they use for violins. Although it is always Balkan Maple and Italian Spruce, this instrument requires much lighter wood often with less tight grain which increases a certain elasticity and accentuate the typical warm and harmonious sound of the viola.</p> <h3>Here is the best selection of woods: Maple from the Balkans and Spruce from the Italian Alps</h3> <div id="gtx-trans"> <div class="gtx-trans-icon"></div> </div>
  • Cello
    <h2>Online sale of wood to build cellos</h2> <p>It is rare that a trunk reaches such a diameter to allow us to cut backs or tops for cello. However, by some fortuitous coincidence some plants resist adversity for hundreds of years and reach 80 centimetres in diameter, a measure beyond which it is possible to obtain material for cello. Grandi Liutai Italiani have always been committed to cutting logs in the forest in a responsible manner and we buy the lots exclusively from the Forest Departments of the various Governments. This means that each plant is cut to promote life in the forest and the spontaneous growth of new individuals that will strengthen the local genetic heritage. The selective felling of plants for commercial purposes and the repopulation with non-native plants has created immense damage to all the forests where we operate, so we are very strict in avoiding buying plants from companies or individuals. The nobile art of the luthier has always been linked with the search for the right material. Consequently, those who, like us, deal with the forest and sawmill work must be aware that a possible mistake at the base could weigh on the whole community of future luthiers, who without the right material may not be able to make their instruments sound as they should.</p> <h3>Here is the best selection of woods for building cellos</h3>

    <p>Willow has been chosen for its acoustic characteristics and workability. Here are some of the main reasons:</p> <p>Acoustics: Willow wood is renowned for its excellent acoustic properties. It possesses a good sound transmission capacity and a favorable sound response. These qualities are extremely important for the cello's back plates as they contribute to generating the desired tone and projection of the instrument.</p> <p>Flexibility: Willow wood is flexible and can be easily shaped by luthiers to achieve the desired shape and thickness. Flexibility is crucial for sculpting the back plates so they resonate harmoniously with the other parts of the cello.</p> <p>Lightweight: The back plates need to be light to allow the cello to vibrate freely and produce high-quality sound. Willow wood is lightweight but durable enough to withstand the stresses a cello undergoes during play.</p> <p>Availability: Willow wood is readily available in many regions, making it easier for luthiers to source.</p> <p>History and Tradition: The luthier tradition has used willow wood for centuries, and it has been proven to work well for building cellos and other bowed instruments. Luthiers often adhere to tradition to ensure the sound quality of the instruments they construct.</p> <p>In summary, willow wood is a traditional and popular choice for making the back plates of cellos due to its exceptional acoustic qualities, workability, and durability, as well as its historical significance in lutherie. These qualities contribute to the creation of an instrument with a rich and full sound.</p>

I violini vengono costruiti da oltre 500 anni utilizzando una semplice combinazione: Abete Rosso per il piano armonico, che Grandi liutai Italiani estrae dalle foreste delle Dolomiti nelle Alpi Italiane, e Acero per fasce, testa e fondo. L'acero più utilizzato è quello Riccio (Acer Platanoides) proveniente dai Balcani o dai Carpazi, mentre tra i più ricercati è l'acero Montano (Acer Pseudoplatanus) che cresce a quote più elevate ed è molto più compatto. Grandi liutai Italiani acquista i tronchi di questa rara specie di Acero in Croazia, Bosnia e Montenegro. La tradizione Cremonese vuole che gli zocchetti interni siano in Salice che proviene dalla Pianura Padana.

L’acero della Bosnia che proponiamo su grandiliutai.com ha un peso nettamente inferiore rispetto a quello molto più economico prodotto in Romania. Ha i raggi midollari molto marcati e ha le caratteristiche che si possono trovare sui violini di Stradivari più celebri.

Negli ultimi anni molti studi hanno evidenziato che il segreto di Stradivari era legato alla sua profonda conoscenza del legno di risonanza e dell’importanza che dava a ciascun elemento che componeva i suoi capolavori.

Il primo strumento ad arco costruito da tenere sulla spalla aveva dimensioni simili alla viola e per ottenere un suono più squillante ed acuto gli artigiani del passato hanno creato una versione piccola della viola chiamata appunto "viol-ino" (piccola viola). I quattro strumenti ad arco più conosciuti rispecchiano infatti i registri delle voci dei cantanti: Il violino e' il Soprano, la Viola il Contralto, il Violoncello il Tenore e il Contrabbasso il Basso.
