New instruments, restoration and reproduction of string instruments
The deep lively tone of the cello, the radiant singing voice of the violin, the fine grain of the wood, the perfect curves of the viola. every instrument is unique and possesses its own particular character, its own sound. My purpose is to mold this sound, to develop it and thereby to make each instrument not only an acoustic but also an aesthetic pleasure.
Whether a Stradivarius violin or a Montagnana cello, my goal is to capture and convey the beauty and sound of these instruments.

From April 07 to 10, I will be exhibiting my outstanding instruments in Frankfurt, on the stand of Pirastro (hall 8.0, stand number C 22). Here you also can try them out yourself. I am looking forward to your visit.
A Short Movie About My Work
As part of their series of documentary videos entitled “Hidden Champions”, the Chamber of Craftsmen of the region of Mittelfranken (in northern Bavaria) produced a movie about me in my studio. It allows you to see me at work and hear my comments about violin-making.
