The instruments I build are made from local woods. The traditional hardwood for making woodwinds in Europe is boxwood. But any wood that turns well qualifies. You can find a list on the Wood Wanted page.
Because I am convinced that a healthy society benefits from small scale and short chains, and because it fits with the artisanal approach I cherish, I do not process purchased non-European wood. Even such beautiful species as pear rowanberry (cormier) and alderberry (alisier) or olivewood that thrive in southern Europe are used only sporadically. Only when offered will they be processed. In that case, it would be a shame to miss out on a beautiful piece of wood….
You can find the prices of the instruments in their descriptions. All prices include VAT.
The waiting time for all newly constructed instruments is currently about six months. Payment is made upon delivery. An instrument may always be rejected at that time; other buyers will thank you….
