OUR LEITMOTIF

Gone are the days of the limitations of using wood to produce musical instruments. Now is the time to unlock the potential of advanced composite materials, to improve and refine the manufacturing of acoustic musical instruments.

Composite materials, specifically designed to provide defined frequency response and vibration modes, are the new frontier for the musical instrument manufacturing industry.
Their ideal properties and the economic potential they offer for implementing more efficient production processes, results in unparalleled traceability and repeatability in traditional manufacturing of musical instruments.

New Materials
Creating our own composite material formulas with excellent acoustic properties for manufacturing musical instruments.
New Designs
Redesigning musical instruments to get the maximum acoustic and functional potential from these new materials.
New Manufacturing
Applying our own innovative production processes for a traceability and repeatability far beyond traditional manufacturing.

OUR TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH

Through using composite materials and unlocking their excellent acoustic qualities, we aim to advance acoustic quality, ease of use and durability in acoustic musical instruments. Solving common problems of traditional wooden instruments. Our solution involves creating 3 permanent lines of Research and Development.
After more than three years of research into the acoustics and vibration analysis of composite materials, we have discovered the great advantages of manufacturing with composite materials over wood.

Carbon Fibre Acoustic Spine

To achieve the highest acoustic properties, we develop and calibrate specific composite materials for each application. Our technical team designs multiple modifications and structures using different carbon fibres, epoxy resins and PMMI cores. This produces the ideal formulas for our application.

Ultra High-Accuracy Multimodal Acoustic Analysis

We have developed a measurement and analysis technology called Ultra High-Accuracy Multimodal Acoustic Analysis (UHMAA). This helps us to gain a deeper understanding of how new materials perform and to unlock their maximum potential. We analyse key aspects including frequency response, amplitude and spectral decay in time.

Carbon Fibre Multi-Layering Wood

In our more sophisticated manufacturing process, we have adapted knowledge from the aerospace sector to achieve maximum traceability and consistency. We use pre-impregnated carbon fibres, super light cores and high pressure curing processes.

BENEFITS OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS

The advantages of using composite materials in our instrument designs are:
Composite Materials
Our composite materials are closer to the theoretical ideal required. Their high rigidity and low mass offer a greater performance than wood.
HIGH QUALITY SOUND
Higher volume and sound projection. A significant volume increase of between 5 and 10 db is achieved, a feature very much in demand for high-end concert acoustic instruments.
LONGER SUSTAIN
Sustain helps maintain the string's vibration, making the note played last longer. It is affected by the instrument's material and how much energy created by the strings it absorbs.
COMFORT & PLAYABILITY
Composite materials absorb little humidity, which can change their physical characteristics. This means a playable string height (known as action) is fixed, avoiding any undesired movement.
TUNING STABILITY
Composite materials are unaffected by humidity and temperature changes, providing stable tuning under any climate conditions. No need to acclimatise for 24/48 hours after a flight.
HIGH DURABILITY
Composite materials are extremely durable compared to wood. High-end wood instruments are fragile, easily damaged and wear rapidly, which requires special and often expensive care.
