The making of a violin is a work of precision, based on ancient proven methods which have remained unchanged for centuries. Classical Cremonese-style models, such as Stradivari and Guarneri, are those most frequently made today.
The violin is a wooden instrument which can go out of order, become used or break. It must therefore be frequently checked by a violin maker. Much of our time in the workshop is devoted to upkeep and repairs.
The restoration of fine instruments demands not only meticulous care but also respect for the original character of the instrument and broad experience on the part of the violin maker.
