The Leonhardt Workshop

And The Essence Of A Good Violin

The Leonhardt Workshop guarantees the quality of its products.

guter klang der streichinstumente Our tuning pegs, tail pins, tailpieces and similar components are generally hand-crafted in Germany, Italy or England using high-quality precious woods: ebony, boxwood, Rio palisander, palo azul and snakewood. Decorative materials include mother-of-pearl, wooden- and gold fittings.

The Lyre, our unique generations-old trademark, symbolizes the Leonhardt quality guarantee. Each of our instruments bears the Leonhardt Lyre twice: once inside the instrument, and again as a brand mark beneath the button on the back.
