Two generations of master violin makers/luthiers

As an instrument the violin connects past and present, and so do we in our work as violin makers.

Our family’s ancestors were building temper pins and end pins for string instruments as early as the 19th century, and now the family’s name Michael stands for two generations of master violin makers in the heart of Munich. Combining more than 70 years of experience in violin making ensures fine craftsmanship and excellent sound quality. Winfried Michael set up the workshop and has shaped it for more than fourty years.
