All the FAQs for the online shop of luthiers for luthiers and do-it-yourself

Have you thought of opening a professional violin making workshop? … Or more simply do you have a corner of the house where you would like to learn how to build your first violin? To spend little on supplies for luthiers and optimize space, it is essential to avoid buying products for do-it-yourself or gardening, thinking that they can also be used in lutherie. Many inexperienced luthiers make this mistake and then end up throwing everything out and buying the professional items in their online luthier shop.

Lutherie is a world where craftsmanship meets music. The luthier has been for centuries the craftsman who designs and builds, repairs stringed instruments, such as the violin ... and plucked instruments such as guitars or lutes (from which this profession took its name).

A luthier is the environment where the luthier creates his own instruments. There are about 180 lutherie shops of which many are located in shops in the center with the showcase in which you can glimpse the master engaged in his work to carve wood for lutherie, but there are also many luthiers in private studios with many rooms to allow the musicians to play instruments to buy.

The luthier builds and repairs instruments using wood and lutherie equipment that are very similar to those used by his predecessors such as Andrea Amati, Antonio Stradivari, Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù and many others ...

In the past the luthier was a craftsman who had a good knowledge of wood for lutherie and a passion for music. Very often he lived in areas where there were many musicians and his work was very influenced by the context in which he operated. The modern luthier, on the other hand, must equip himself with the best lutherie equipment to meet the demand of many musicians around the world, so he is more free to design, experiment and propose lutherie instruments that reflect his own personality.

Many tools for lutherie are quite similar to those that can be found in a common hardware store, however the wood for lutherie has particular characteristics for which it is very important to be addressed by a luthier. When we have to insert a new product in the catalog we have it tested by professional luthiers who use different approaches to work in order to identify any defects and problems before going to propose it to customers.

Making tools for violin making in Italy has two main advantages: taking advantage of the ability of extraordinary designers and engineers with whom it is very easy to collaborate and use production plants of important Italian excellence, such as automotive, jewelry, metallurgy and turning.
