Spruce and Maple Body
The back of the Wessex V is made from two pieces of figured Balkan maple and the ribs and scroll are also in a similar wood. The top is two pieces of Bavarian spruce of narrow or medium-narrow grain. This combination ensures a professional quality, rich resonance and pleasing timbre.

The use of maple and spruce is a tried and tested combination used in superior quality violins. This combination produces a focused, powerful sound with plenty of body and tonal warmth, which will only improve over time. The woods are hand selected based on their age, before being hand carved for a sound and appearance full of heritage.
