The material used for the manufacture of Corene offers the following specificities:
A look feel and finish virtually indistinguishable from ebony in its colour and structure
Resistance to acidity found in hand and fingers perspiration, reducing the amount of times needed to correct the surface of the fingerboard
Excellent dimensional stability, not affected by humidity and temperature changes
Mechanical characteristic comparable to ebony, providing strength and the sensation of uniform elasticity, especially in higher finger positions
Surface hardness and mass volume equivalent to ebony, qualities essential for a sharp and clear tone
Corene fingerboards can be worked as ebony; the material is completely homogeneous which makes it very pleasant to work with traditional tools and traditional violin making methods.
Corene fingerboards are designed in Switzerland, machined with an accuracy of +/- 0.1 mm and supplied with all the finely visible surfaces, black ebony, uniform and revealing a slightly veined structure.
