Well seasoned and Old European Maple & Spruce..........All cut between 1953 & 1990
We have an unparalelled selection of old European tonewood. Every piece of maple and spruce we sell is guaranteed ready to use the day you receive it. We even have some hard to find European beach for violin and viola both flamed and unflamed. Our collection holds a few rare quarter-sawn 1-piece cello backs as well. We have ribs in block form or cut in the traditional style. Our Bosnian maple is very fine as it was in earlier times. Bassmakers note our flamed bass backs, also old and ready to go. All of our spruce has been split and most of the maple too. We have very old bassbar stock and lots of old soundpost sticks in many diameters. Our most prized spruce stems from Italy and Czechoslovakia and some of it has 35 years per inch. Our wood was all cut large enough so there are no worries about arching height or bout width.

Our violin tonewood is all very well seasoned ready to work with. Our large selection offers a variety for every taste. Our Bosnian maple is particularly handsome as are our 1-piece slab and half-slab cut backs. Our finest spruce tops were cut over 50 years ago and are of a quality that is unattainable today. Be sure to look at our 'Feature' pieces to see the exact piece of wood you'll receive.
