Old Wood is a leading specialist company. It employs a team of highly qualified craftsmen and technicians whose experience ranges from instrument making to industrial chemistry.
Old Wood created the 1700 System, an easy-to-apply schematic process encompassing ground varnishes, glazes, oil varnishes and natural colours, which allows them to formulate a whole world of finishes that can be used with any number of techniques.
The 1700 System strives to achieve a balance between an instrument’s beauty and its musical quality, while helping it to age in a noble and elegant manner, and easing the task of the luthier. Old Wood uses carefully selected high-quality raw materials, and manufactures its products using traditional methods and following the most appropriate directions given in old manuscripts, while applying strict quality controls.
