Diaphragming the sound board

Before moving on to the next phases in the production process, the sound board is planed down further at the edges in order to increase its mobility.

Gluing the ribs

The sound board is now a very flexible membrane. In order to reinforce the sound board small crosspieces known as ribs, which are also made of red spruce, are attached perpendicularly to the grain.

Measuring the curvature

Both before and after gluing the artisans make sure that the curvature of the board is accurately measured along each rib in order to ensure that the rigorous parameters set out in the design have been achieved.

Planing down the ends of the ribs

After gluing to the board, the ends of the ribs are planed down to a specific profile which gives the board better and more controlled elasticity resulting in better acoustic efficiency.

Gluing on the bridges

The two bridges are glued onto the board simultaneously using another special press; by compressing them on a purpose-made mould the board obtains its "double curvature".
