Visit at Florinett in the beautiful Albulatal Valley

For many years we build our Hanika concert guitars with fir soundboards by „Tonewood Switzerland“ who resides in Bergün/Latsch in the Canton of the Grisons. In the winter but only during specific moon phases they harvest mountain firs that grow at more than 1300 metres above sea level, which are then split and further processed into soundboards for our instruments. Each year Armin Hanika personally makes the trip to meet Andrea Florinett in Latsch and to hand pick especially beautiful soundboards. Just a few days ago Andrea Florinett gave us these very vivid impressions of the Swiss mountain fir´s path to become a soundboard.
