Pianos and Spruce Wood
The strength, flexibility, and lightweight nature of European Alpine spruce wood makes it a highly regarded material. Spruce from this region has longer wood fibers than other types of trees, giving it exceptional resonance, stable dimensions, and great adhesion between fibers and making it a popular choice for high-quality instruments with deep, stunning resonance.
Willis & Co rigorously selects materials and only natural forest-grown wood with evenly-dispersed age rings, rich texture, and a healthy appearance is used. The surface of the wood is then dried, waxed, glazed, polished, and treated with various other processes, all of which are carefully monitored to ensure that only the most perfect wood materials are integrated into our pianos.
