„What is crucial is not one’s own sound ideal but that of the artist. This is why the instrument and its owner take sole priority for us.“
Martin Erben, master violin maker
Besides restoration and repair, Martin Erben specialises in adjusting the sound of string instruments. With a high degree of empathy – for the respective instrument and the individual musician – it is possible for the experienced violin maker to express the character of the instrument and also the expectations of the artist. In his hands, the bridge, voice, neck angle and strings of a violin are optimised. With his support, the musician and instrument become an incomparable unit, which can be seen, felt and above all heard.
