Quality African Timbers - Prosono International

Back and Sides for acoustic guitars
Precious woods

Our business skills and location in South Africa enable us to deliver precious timbers of top quality at very competitive prices.

When selecting our staff and saw mill location in South Africa, we considered the following realities:

  • Field-inspectors should reach their destination within a day trip indeed presence on the spot and supervision is the only way to achieve consistency in the supply of rare and precious timbers.
  • The country offers quality industrial inputs, in machinery, equipment maintenance, cutting blades, water, electricity, and qualified labour at competitive conditions.
  • South Africa offers flexible and efficient logistics, the more so as most of our consignments are sent LCY (less than container loads) to customers worldwide! Most consignments reach our customers within six weeks time.


We stand for the makers of woodwind instruments as a permanent source of supply of top quality African Blackwood, the timber of excellence, and also for mopani, as an alternative to those who do need a competitive and quality alternative.


We can supply luthiers with unique, master grade, back and sides of guitars, of African Blackwood, Pink Ivory and Mopani Colophospermum. Our strategy is to permanently keep high quality tables at drying stage.

For demanding turners, we keep in stock a large number of parts of pink ivory, wild olive and tamboti, unique South African timbers, for bowl blanks, turning squares for cues, walking sticks, knives handles, cutlery, gun stock, jewellery boxes, clock faces, etc. Our website lists more than 30 applications and the sizes of the suitable blanks.
