| The different woods
used in our concertinas can be categorized by function:
- construction: frames, bellows frames,
- sound reflection: action board, reed pan,
- cosmetic: veneers, end plates.
Each of our models consists of a
different combination of woods, selected
for their tonal properties, strength
and weight. This selection, together with
other aspects such as type of
reeds, acoustic construction, etc. enhances the
character of each model.
Besides different combinations of wood, we also vary the cut direction of
wood and sanding grit, as
they both affect sound reflection.
When ordering a Wakker concertina, both
cosmetic and tonal woods can be
selected by the customer.
