Welcome to Tonewood – Tonholz - France


Dear visitors,


We provide tonewoods for the manufacturing of stringed instruments. Tonewood Toneholz France only provides the highest quality of wood available. We have our own wood classification based on the aesthetics of the maple and on the quality of the spruce. The wood is of European origins; the flamed maple wood comes from Bosnia and the spruce comes from the Alps.


Maple classification :


AAA - the most beautiful and perfectly flamed pieces.


AA - very good flamed pieces.


A - good flamed pieces.


Each back is sold with a neck and ribs.


Spruce classification :


AAA - perfectly regular and very tight woodfibre.


AA - slightly irregular and tight woodfibre.



Our woods are quarternsaw, dried and stored in the open air. The year when the wood was cut is written on each piece and filled in before sale
