Material & Ecology

Wood is a raw material which is present in almost every part of our daily life. Trees are an important part of the complex eco-system while healthy forests are imperative for the Earth's atmosphere.

Only Rubber Wood (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.) is used for the making of NINO® percussion instruments. This wood fulfils the CITES regulations ("Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora") and originates from environmentally controlled forests from industrial wood plantations.

Wood from environmentally controlled Wood Plantations

Thailand is a logical manufacturing base for percussion instruments due to the fact that the Hevea Brasiliensis, which was indigenous to Brazil and later transported by way England to Asia, has been commercially grown in Southeast Asia during the last century on plantation farms for the production of Latex.

The traditional plantation of Rubber Wood (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.) meets all ecological requirements. In a natural evolution, new trees are planted and the older ones, which have ceased to provide latex, are harvested. In this way, plenty of raw material is available and the valuable rain forest eco-system is preserved.

You can buy those fantastic instruments now, from DOlphin Music - and for great prices!
