The process begins with the selection of tonewood from our
extensive inventory of European aged timbers.
We quantitatively measure the quality of our wood under different physical aspects in order to arrive at an objective and clear determination of the qualities of the woods used. During the making process, the natural acoustic properties of the instrument components are continuously measured and monitored.
The result is a unique development of each piece of wood. Components are then perfectly matched and harmonized together – according to the carefully determined natural acoustical characteristics of the wood – to maximize the instrument’s potential.
Workshop models are made in the work-sharing German violin
making tradition using modern day innovative techniques.
Under the direction of Bernd Dimbath, the Heinrich Gill workshop has entirely redesigned and refined the instrument building process. Each instrument is made by a highly specialized and experienced team of violin makers using only the finest European tonewoods. Each instrument is individually prepared and varnished using only natural resins.
Available in three progressive levels (Student, Monza, and LeMans), there is a model suited to inspire every advancing pre-professional.
