The manufacturing

Every radiofonografo is an unique handwork, but at its origin there is a manufacturing process of extreme precision, with buttons and chassis made by CNC milling machines, a stand melted in a single piece from a sand mould and then painted individually and with the utmost care. The capable hands of our artisans turn semifinished pro- ducts into truly unique products. Wood panels sanding, components assembly, stand finishing and silk screen printing are all processes allowing the italian craftsman- ship tradition to make each radiofonografo unique.
