The history of SCHILBACH

The SCHILBACH brand is based on profound development work over several years. At the beginning of 2006, the two brothers Benjamin Schilbach, at that time studying at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and Alexis Schilbach working as a violin maker and restorer in Berlin, developed the basic features of the SCHILBACH brand. In 2008, with the opening of the atelier for restoration and violin making in Morges / Switzerland, SCHILBACH and thus a specific face of the brand, went public for the first time.

A second aspect of the brand was realized in 2015. With the foundation of the studio for design and product management SCHILBACH DesignThinkingProcess in Harpfing in Bavaria, Germany, also under the motto “Sign of Excellence” and thus with the same demands on perfection and high quality. Here, products for violin making are developed and implemented in close cooperation with the studio and its specific specialist knowledge, with a sound scientific background.

One year later, the SCHILBACH online shop opened, where you can purchase products for violin makers. The dispatch and the support of the violin makers take place from Germany.

In 2017, SCHILBACH presented itself for the first time at the Mondomusica trade fair in Cremona. Today the brand is one of the reference projects in the strategic brand development of SCHILBACH DesignThinkingProcess.

Since the SCHILBACH online store for violin makers was founded, we have been a regular stop for numerous violin, viola and cello makers, as well as bow makers and musicians at the Mondomusica, the trade fair for violin making in Cremona. Here we have the opportunity to personally exchange ideas with you, our customers.

In order to make the fair and the visit to our stand an entertaining and exciting pleasure, we try to lighten up our stand by entering into cooperations with other companies for Mondomusica in Cremona.

So in the end there is something for everyone.

Each challenge goes through a threefold problem-solving process that breaks down into an analysis, design development, and execution phase.

In the Restoration, special techniques that preserve the original material ensure the highest standards for the modern musician.

The core competence in retouching and coating is individually matched to the respective instrument in the analysis, the pigment processing, the composition, as well as the structure of the paint and the polishing technique.
