A tradition of quality
We make our components from extremely delicate wood such as ebony, rosewood or blackwood. Since most of these come from Africa and are extremely difficult to obtain, they must be selected and used with the utmost care. Karl Klier & Co. plays an active role in this process providing know how and helping local partners finance their technical equipment. We believe that personal contacts and diligence are still the best way to ensure the consistently high quality of the materials we use for our products.
