Quality of Wood
Alpine spruce and the highest quality Bosnian maple is used in the instruments, obtained from lumber-mills in Germany. The plates, necks and ribs from these sources undergo appropriate treatment right after the wood is chopped down; they are cut or splintered, perfectly stored and long dried in a natural way.
Violin makers worry about lacquering the instruments, since it often impairs the sound of the white instrument. Managing perfect surface treatment, beautiful color and gloss requires rich knowledge and experience and is a very time-consuming and elaborate matter. The Akord Kvint master violin-makers abound in extensive knowledge of the surface treatment of string instruments. The lacquers are prepared according to old, well-established recipes. The lacquering technology itself is then a key to the success of the whole process.
