Scouring Europe for alpine spruce and hard maple, exceptional quality wood for repair projects and new double basses! We are off to Germany next month, returning to the home of string instrument’s finest tonewood – the Bavarian Alps. European spruce grows on the upper slopes of the Alps and harvested by traditions practiced for generations – the wood is cut according to moon phases, the descending and waning moon considered the prime opportunity.
Inquiries invited, please contact Mike to discuss repair concern, restoration project, or commission an original new instrument at 860-685-1621 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
