Bobak Violino

- Finest Sounding Violins - 25 years of violin making violins, violas & cellos.

BOBAK VIOLINO – is a recognized and acknowledged workshop with over 25 years of tradition. The company, which has developed its own distinguishing style through years of experience, imparts a unique character to its instruments. The cause of all the stir (the originator and founder of the company) was Jan Bobak, a prominent Polish luthier, member of ZPAL (Polish Union of Artist Violin Makers), first prize winner of the 1986 International Henryk Wieniawski Violin Making Competition. During his stay in the USA in the 1980s, he had an opportunity to work for the reputable William Harris Lee & Co. in Chicago. There, he came across a completely innovative form of workshop organization. For two years of violin making work, Jan had been improving his qualifications under direction of Tetsuo Matsuda, who studied at the Cremona School of violin making. Bobak has also collaborated with many now highly regarded luthiers, such as Michael Darnton, William Whedbee, Gary Garavaglia, Vanna So, Bronek Cisoń.
