Violin Leonhardt - The good sound begins with the wood
Our company "Violin Leonhardt" stands for quality and tradition. Since 1926, we have been building on the centuries-long tradition of violin making in Mittenwald. Already in the fourth generation the special tradition of the violin-maker is carried out.
The most important material is the wood for a violin maker. Beaten to the correct moon phase and the optimal storage, at least 5 years - only these woods are bought and processed by us. We pay special attention to the use of old, dried natural spruce and maple trees from indigenous forests as well as from Bosnia, Austria and Italy. It is important that the wood can mature as well as a good wine. That is why we have a great and unique wooden warehouse in our company, in which some centuries old woods are stored and waiting to become an instrument through our craftsmanship. Our models are based on the models from Italy and Germany. Through loving handwork, each string instrument is built by hand in a detailed way and then painted.
