Galloup Wood Management System

Sound Systems for Tone Woods

Bryan’s Tone Wood Library is one of the most prestigious private collections in the world that is the results of his proprietary dynamic testing system for rating musical grade tone woods. The Galloup Wood Management software generates the Galloup Rating™ that guarantees tonal control and structural reliability.

How the rating system works

It is not a base 10 rating system; some tone woods like Ebony rate between 3.0 and 3.5. Other woods like Balsa and Paulownia rate around 14.0 or above. Of course this seems logical when weight and strength are taken into account, but the system goes much deeper. Now in it’s fifth generation of development, with hundreds of instruments to back its theories, the Galloup Rating is far stronger than the calculation of “Q” or any single numerical code. It’s beauty is, we dynamically identify characteristics in tone woods to isolate their sonic value and structural integrity. Furthermore, we offer application and stiffness values for calculating thicknesses in real-time. The bottom line is, science is a powerful tool and the Galloup System is the most advanced system in tone wood science.

Galloup Rated sound boards are available to Galloup School graduates and are used for Bryan’s Tone Development classes. The tone wood rating service is offered not only to our Luthier friends, we now offer this service to anyone in the Luthier community. For more information contact us at: or 1-800-278-0089
