Wood Material

Materials

Woodify sound solutions are made out of selected woods. Each wood type has unique sound characteristics as well as elastic properties and has been chosen for its particular qualities.

After years of experiments with different wood types and combinations, we found the perfect wood type to fit to each flute, according to it s response to vibrations and it s inner properties. Each wood type matched the material of the instrument.

Ashwood is a light to medium brown color. Sapwood can be very wide, and tends to be a beige or light brown; not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood. This wood has a medium-light effect, resulting in a balanced, round sound.

Ash Wood

 Varying shades of yellowish to reddish brown with darker brown, gray, or black stripes. Moderately wide sapwood is a pale yellow, clearly demarcated from heartwood. Sometimes seen with a curly or mottled grain pattern.

Walnut can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can sometimes have a gray, purple, or reddish cast. Sapwood is nearly white. Wood from orchard trees that have been grafted with English Walnut (Juglans regia) may have a colorful/streaked appearance near the graft, which is sometimes referred to as “marbled Claro Walnut.”

Cherry wood is light pinkish brown when freshly cut, darkening to a deeper golden brown with time and upon exposure to light. Sapwood is a pale yellowish color. Cherry has a good sound effect, adding a lot of resistance to the tube of the instrument.

Beech is typically a pale cream color, sometimes with a pink or brown hue. Veneer tends to be slightly darker colored, as slicing the veneer usually requires the wood to be prepared with steam, which gives the wood a more golden tone. Flatsawn surfaces tend to be very plain, while quartersawn surfaces exhibit a silvery fleck pattern.

Beech Wood

Zebrawood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is flatsawn or quartersawn, the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn).

Zebrano

When freshly cut the heartwood of Purpleheart is a  dull grayish/purplish brown. Upon exposure the wood becomes a deeper eggplant purple. With further age and exposure to UV light, the wood becomes a dark brown with a hint of purple. This color-shift can be slowed and minimized by using a UV inhibiting finish on the wood. For more information, see the article Preventing Color Changes in Exotic Woods.

Amaranth

Ebony has dramatic striped appearance, somewhat similar to Zebrawood. Yellow to reddish brown body with darker brown or black stripes. Sharply demarcated sapwood is pale gold color.

Grain is usually straight, but can sometimes be interlocked; fine uniform texture and good natural luster.

Macassar Ebony

Heartwood is yellow to golden brown, with irregular brown, purple, or black streaks. Paler sapwood is about one inch thick and is solid yellow, lacking the contrasting streaks found in the heartwood.
Grain tends to be straight or slightly interlocked; texture is medium with open pores.

Color tends to be a light cream to yellow, which tends to darken slightly with prolonged exposure to light. Sapwood not distinct from heartwood.
Boxwood has a fine, even texture with a natural luster. The grain tends to be straight or slightly irregular.

Technology & Innovation

A Patented Solution

PATENTED SOLUTION • INNOVATIVE DESIGN • CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY

Woodify is a patented sound solution. It is the result of years of research with different materials, to achieve the best sounding results, as well as the highest quality and durability of the product. A special attention has been given to find the best possible integration with the instrument. Each piece is precisely shaped using cutting-edge technology and superior machining. After an accurate quality test each wooden piece is then carefully handcrafted and assembled in Vienna.

Research and Craft

EXPERIMENT • CRAFT • SOUND RESEARCH

“Woodify is the result of a year-long personal research to find a sound quality on my flute, that would suit my taste. Being unsatisfied with the sound of my instrument, I started to experiment to find something that would give me more resistance, more dynamics as well as tone
colors. After 2 years of experiments I developed this innovative add-on.

Woodify is a handcrafted wooden sound enhancer for woodwind instruments. This patented solution enriches the sound palette of flute, allowing the player great flexibility of expression and a various color palette.” - Alessandro Baticci
