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

    <p>Blocks are important elements in the construction of violas, 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 violas 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>
