Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) is a revolutionary wood reforming technology. Within a short period of time, new wood matured with this technology produces a tonal richness like that of well-used vintage instruments. A.R.E technology uses specialized equipment that precisely controls temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure to transform new wood to have the rich tone of instruments that have been played for many years. Furthermore, as no chemicals are used in the treatment process, A.R.E. technology has low environmental impact.
