Wood for String Instruments

Online sale of wood for stringed instruments

Buying Tone-wood on Grandi Liutai Italiani website is the best way to take advantage of a very scrupulous selection made by our luthiers in our warehouse in Cremona where over 10 thousand violin sets are stored to season.

Each piece comes from a specific geographical area, and it is cut with a system that respects the natural growth of each plant and enhances its acoustic and aesthetic qualities.

Each piece is classified according to the specific weight, the regularity of the grain and the depth and distribution of the flame.

For example, a piece of Master class maple will be very light, it will have a straight and very regular grain, very deep flame and well distributed throughout the piece.

    Buy the best maple trees for violin making online

    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.

    Here is the best selection of woods chosen by professional luthiers

  • Viola

    Online sale of wood to build violets

    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.

    Here is the best selection of woods: Maple from the Balkans and Spruce from the Italian Alps

  • Cello

    Online sale of wood to build cellos

    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.
