The Wood

At Liuteria Zerilli, we believe that the quality of the wood used in our instruments is paramount to their sound and beauty. That's why our expert luthier, Luca Zerilli, personally selects the finest woods from sawmills located in the nearby Alps.

We only use top-quality Italian and Balkan woods that have been air dried for several years to ensure optimal stability, density, and resonance. By sourcing our materials directly from the sawmill, we can guarantee that each piece of wood is of the highest quality and free from defects.

Luca's meticulous attention to detail and use of traditional techniques bring out the natural beauty and character of the wood, resulting in instruments that not only sound great but also look stunning. Trust us to use only the finest woods to create instruments that are both works of art and masterpieces of sound.

At Liuteria Zerilli, we understand that the sound of an instrument is just as important as its appearance. That's why we devote a significant amount of time and resources to acoustic research, experimenting with different materials and techniques to optimize the sound of our instruments.

Our expert luthier, Luca Zerilli, has a deep understanding of the science behind sound production and is constantly seeking new ways to improve the tonal quality of our instruments. Whether it's experimenting with different varnishes or adjusting the placement of the soundpost, we are always striving to achieve the perfect balance of tone, projection, and responsiveness.
