About Us

We believe there is no reason why the best sounding violins cannot be made today. In a time of innovation, and technological advancement we believe modern instruments should surpass antique violins, not just by a little, but by great measures. If only one can find a way to measure what makes a violin sound amazing.

There have been many who have used technology to make violins, some have failed to make good violins and some have succeeded. However, most of their research looks to imitate the construction and materials of those great violin makers. By that method one can only create a violin that is at most just as good as the one being imitated, but as is the case, most fall short and create one that is almost as good.

We use technology in a whole different way, we use it to do to two things. First we use it to determine what is it that makes the sound of a violin good, as this is a very debatable topic. Then we use it to analyze the different constructions of our violins in order to produce the sound that we consider to be the ideal sound for a violin, and we modify it accordingly.
