The Name

Why "Spruce and Maple?" Aside from being beautiful trees, spruce and maple have been the most commonly-used woods in the making of violin family instruments for the past 400 or so years. The top of a violin is generally spruce, while the back, sides, and neck are maple. Together, spruce and maple are the perfect combination of tone woods, when it comes to bowed instruments. Fiddle-obsessed singer and writer Laurie Lewis founded the company, and gave us our name.
