The objective of the study was to investigate the influence of wood species on sound timbre generated by electric string instruments. The obtained results allow to conclude that wood species have the largest influence on the specific sound loudness and it correlates with density and modulus of elasticity. The greater differences occur at lower frequencies. There was no correlation between signal recorded by microphone and pickup.
