Subsequently, he handed over the company to his Schwiegersohn, Wilfried Leonhardt, his father Fritz was also a plucked instrument maker in Mittenwald. Thus the company had further successful years and could make a name for itself. Wilfried then handed over the workshop to his son Rainer Leonhardt in 1997 and has been running the company since then. As a violin master, he is known for his unique master instruments. He feels very much connected to the tradition and can also convince through his experience as a director of the „Mittenwalder Geigenbaumuseum“ for several years.
