A speaker made of sounding wood – aesthetics at its best
The JMC Soundboard creates a balanced, lively and omnipresent musical ambience, just like in a concert.
The interplay of 350-year-old spruce, centuries-old techniques of string instrument making and the latest audio technology has resulted in an outstanding loudspeaker. The JMC Soundboard takes you back to the original dimension of music.
A sounding art object with a very own fascination
The Soundboard is not only an extraordinary loudspeaker, it is also an art object that can be designed according to your wishes.
The source of the beautiful sound is the sound spruce, which grows in the huge Risoud forest near Le Brassus. Lorenzo Pellegrini, a tree picker, finds the right trees with a sure instinct. The instrument maker Jean Michel Capt produces this unique product from clay spruce with a lot of skill, experience and know-how.
