Terra Tonewoods finds tonewood species from lands that have been legally designated by the Peruvian government to be cleared for mining or agriculture, as well as sustainable, legally managed commercial forest concessions.
Our company offers a largest, most diverse selection of new exotic tonewood species for luthiers.
We buy direct from one trusted source in Peru! How do we know it is a trusted source? Because Terra Tonewoods is the source. Our own team is actively researching and re-discovering musical wood species for use in the making of stringed instruments. As "traditional tone woods" become even more difficult to obtain, and, in many cases, simply illegal to trade, it is ever more important to introduce top quality alternatives to fill the gap. Our tone woods are proving to be equal, or superior, in tonal quality and workability. The exciting part is many of these virtually unknown new luthier woods are sustainable forest byproducts, which till now have been wasted, or considered non-commercial (non-value) wood species. But times are changing and despite the current down economy, the demand for musical wood is increasing.
Terra Tonewoods is looking beyond tradition into the future for the new generation of artists, builders, and designers of fine guitars, mandolin, harp guitars, and other string instruments. Focusing on the most exciting, highly sought after tonal-woods for todays top artists.
Terra Tonewoods is committed to environmentally friendly business practices while having as little impact on the environment as possible and helping to promote sustainability and a better economy both abroad and at home.
Thank you for supporting our efforts by using tonewoods from Terra Tonewoods.
