Mastri has produced hand-made violins, violas, cellos and double basses since 2004. But the company around director Stefan Nestler draws upon a much longer tradition of making string instruments. Mastri’s headquarters are located near Markneukirchen, a city in the Vogtland region, where string instruments have been made for over 350 years.
All of our employees received their training in the Vogtland area, often in traditional family businesses which have been involved in the instrument-making business for generations. By focusing on a particular aspect of lutherie each instrument-maker is able to achieve superior results in his or her specialized area.
