My beautiful violin shop

This afternoon, Ilja Grawerts Brisbane Violin shop is very beautifulI was sitting in my shop drinking coffee and not doing any work, looking around thinking what a beautiful shop this is. I spend the last 9 Years nearly every day here creating violins with fantastic sound, doing restorations to give old violins a new live and having a lot of fun doing so.

New Studio Violins finished

These 2 Violins are my last two handmade Studio Violins which I just finished enf of June 2010Here is a Photo of the last two  Studio Violins I finished.  I antiqued the varnish so they do not only sound beautiful but look it as well.

The Ilja Grawert Studio Violins are a special line of instrument handmade in the Violin Makers workshop. They are priced between AUS $ 4,995 to AUS $ 11,000. They are handcrafted after the model of famous Italian, French and German makers and are all varnished with varnishes made with old traditional violin varnish recipes. Through my unique and extensive  knowledge of how the sound of a violin works I fine tune the instruments  sound to a beauty usually only found in much more expensive instruments.

There are no other instruments with these superior features available.

What are the feature which make the Studio Violins so special:

  • outstanding quality
  • extremely beautiful tone
  • even sound over all four strings
  • they speak easy when played
  • the tone carries even to the people of the audience sitting furthest away
  • they are structurally well made
  • the timbers are used are the fine grained European spruce and maple aged for long years.
  • setup for performance on the highest level.

Please come in my shop and try them your self.
