Team Paoletti commits itself to finding the best chestnut wood from old wine barrels in order to produce every item from its range which varies from the classic wine to the lounge series
In the following pictures you can admire some of the largest wine barrels that will be acquired today. They can contain up to 2,500 liters of wine and have Been used in cellars for years.
This is the reason why Paoletti music instruments carry history with them, our past lies within every piece of wood.
In the spirit of paying reverence to the past and at the same time making the best use of the materials at hand, Paoletti began to make use of the ancient wine barrels left from the old family business. With many of these being made of 130-170 year old chestnut wood, it was soon realised that this gave the instruments a unique and impressive sound. Why? It is a secret.
“This is the story behind my Wine Series instruments, today offered as Stratospheric, Nancy, LP, SG, V, DC and Skybass design. Visually the instruments are a mixture of the old and the new, with the Loft series replicating the chipped paint jobs of well-worn rock’n’roll guitars”
