My passion is crafting beautiful instruments. Here in my workshop in Roßhaupten / Allgäu I carry on the centuries old tradition of making violins, violas and cellos by hand. Much of the aged tonewood I use grew locally here in the alps and I custom make unique instruments of the highest quality tailored to individual customer wishes.
My passion is crafting beautiful instruments, but my greatest satisfaction comes from knowing they are appreciated, cherished and played by musicians.
Extensive restoration work of many old, valuable instruments made by the Italian masters has honed my repair skills and craftsmanship. I have been fortunate to gain many years of experience in the art of violin making in different locations around the world, which enables me to realize the maximum potential of the wood and obtain the best possible sound for each instrument.
