The Bernd Dimbath Workshop in Bavaria

I store and age the wood like my grandfather did many years ago; in a storage barn in the backyard. The materials age here for years – the wood is allowed to dry slowly and naturally. This is the only method to make a good instrument later…with no risk of shrinking, warping or cracking for the centuries of years to come. After many years of careful storage the wood is again selected using extremely sensible electronic measuring sensors before the wood can be finally qualified in formed of acoustical properties.

Once the wood enters the shop, here ideas are created and the most beautiful instruments are built. We make violins with more than a 300 year old tradition of Violin Making. Every instrument is made with highest care and attention. I graduate every instrument by hand to achieve the best tonal results. I use only the best tools available to support my passion for making fine string instruments.
