And an exciting journey!

 

We are handcrafting violins, violas and cellos at our atelier in the heart of Vienna since 2006.

 

Our other services include instrument repair and restoration, bow repair and rehairing, and instrument rental.

 

In addition to our own, handcrafted instruments, we offer violins, violas, cellos and bows from other makers, along with a wide range of accessories.

 

We cultivate close relationships with our customers and are always happy to offer expert advice. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have about your stringed instrument.


Our Services. Personal and Comprehensive.

To ensure that an instrument will remain in top playing condition and maintain its value and sound quality, it must be professionally serviced and repaired on a regular basis, together with the bow.

 

Contact us or stop in for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Violin. A Perfected Design.

The overall design of the violin has been perfected in all aspects. Modern-day luthiers are left with the exciting task of reinterpreting this design with every new instrument, shaping the wood by hand to create new and one-of-a-kind violins.

 

All of our instruments are modelled after works by the great Italian masters, the same instruments that delight audiences in the hands of the best soloists of our time on the stages of the world’s most prestigious concert halls. These masterpieces are known for their depth and richness of tone and their wide range of modulation.
