Employed materials

Hristo creates instruments with only discriminating acoustic materials, such as Balkanian maple, available through a reserve from the 1990s. As an expert in tone wood, Hristo dedicates time every year to select the best red spruce trees from Trentino, North Italy. He personally oversees the rigorous and meticulous process of cutting and splitting the trees. For optimum results, he leaves the wood to season near the tree’s origin.
