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

    <p>Blocks are important elements in the construction of violins, playing a crucial role in the structure and optimization of the instrument's sound. Blocks can be made from different types of wood, but the most common are spruce and willow.</p> <p>Spruce blocks are often used in violins because this type of wood has good resistance and uniform density, allowing for the even transmission of string vibrations.</p> <p>Willow is known for its flexibility and strength, making it an excellent choice for violin blocks. Additionally, willow has the ability to transmit vibrations evenly, allowing for better response to lower notes.</p> <p>The choice of one or the other depends on the preferences of the luthier and the desired sound result.</p>
