The woods


With wide distribution in the Amazon region, frequently found in Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Pará and Rondônia states.

Low density wood, medium to thick texture, beige-pink color, with veins forming smooth regular designs, easy to be crafted, which allows a good finish.


Pau-Ferro is a wood often found in the states of Goiás, Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, São Paulo and Paraná. It is also found in Bolivia.

It’s a density moderately heavy and very durable wood, with a color varying from light-yellow-brown to brown, usually with dark veins forming very characteristic and exotic irregular designs, reasonably difficult to be crafted, but allowing for a good quality finish.

Sitka Spruce

One of a few non-brazilian wood used in the production of our national instruments. You can find Sitka Spruce in North America.

It is a cream-colored, light pink or brown wood, quite abundant and which results in instruments with good sound projection and a very “lively” sound, with a lot of attack, with a clear tone and it is possible to keep the notes highlighted even with the strong dynamics.
